Obama was a divider who used executive privilege

Mr. Brunson, Mr. Clyburn should learn to not throw bricks in glass houses or compare people to Nazis when his party clearly has more in common with them.

"He began to do things to discredit the media, to disrupt the judicial system." - Sen. Clyburn

"Under Mr. Obama, the Justice Department and the F.B.I. have spied on reporters by monitoring their phone records, labeled one journalist an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal case for simply doing reporting and issued subpoenas to other reporters to try to force them to reveal their sources and testify in criminal cases," wrote James Risen, New York Times, Dec. 30, 2016.

So the press writes their opinion instead of news, and Trump calls them on it. But Obama tried to silence the press and used the FBI and DOJ to do so, but the comparison to Nazis is leveled at the GOP?

In Obama, we had a president who used executive privilege to cover up a U.S. Border patrol agent's death because of illegal gun running led by the DOJ. Those who leaked classified files were either vilified or pardoned depending on whether it was pro- or anti-party beneficial. Obama did not use Twitter but instead stood in front of a mic and lectured on every incident that happened in the U.S. that could possibly be used to divide the country (think Beer Summit, Trayvon Martin, etc. etc. ad nauseam). The sad part is in all those cases every agency possible looked into them and found Obama's opinion to be wrong. Obama also allowed the IRS to target political opposition.

Obama was not a uniter; he was a divider who pitted people against their neighbors just like Hitler did. His officials gave legitimacy for groups to protest, burn, loot and shoot cops. Those mobs were his Sturmabteilung.

So you have fear over what might happen; I have hope because we overcame what did happen.

God Bless Donald J. Trump.
