After Promising To Rarely Speak Out, Obama Dropped This Statement In The Middle Of Sean Spicer’s Press Briefing Today…
“President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,” Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said in a statement. “In his final official speech as President, he spoke about the important role of citizen and how all Americans have a responsibility to be the guardians of our democracy — not just during an election but every day.”
“Citizens exercising their Constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake.”
Obama pledged to speak up only if he felt that “core values” were being violated.
