posted by Hannity Staff - 5.31.18

New video emerged this week showing the moment former senior Obama staffer Ben Rhodes learned Donald Trump would become the President of the United States, repeatedly saying he needed time to “process” Hillary’s stunning defeat.

The footage is part of a new HBO documentary detailing the final days of the Obama presidency and shows Rhodes sitting alone on a park bench attempting to contemplate one of the biggest political upsets in modern history.

The video comes as Rhodes prepares to release his upcoming memoir detailing his time in the Obama White House. The book contains inside information over the administration’s response to Trump’s victory, including Obama questioning their entire strategy; asking “What if we were wrong?”

REPORT: Barack Obama Called Trump a ‘CARTOON’ After 2016 Election

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.31.18

Former President Barack Obama reportedly called Donald Trump a “cartoon” after his stunning 2016 victory, according to a new tell-all memoir from a longtime Obama insider.

The book, ‘The World as It Is,’ is written by former top aide Ben Rhodes and sheds new light on Obama’s immediate reaction upon learning Hillary Clinton would not continue his legacy; allegedly asking those closest to him, “What if we were wrong?”

“Maybe this is what people want. I’ve got the economy set up well for him. No facts. No consequences. They can just have a cartoon,” he said. “We’re about to find out just how resilient our institutions are, at home and around the world.”

“Maybe we pushed too far. Maybe people just want to fall back into their tribe,” Obama added.

Insiders claim the President was largely blind-sided by the stinging loss, with polls predicting Hillary defeating Trump by 332 electoral votes to 206.

INSIDE MAN: Former Obama Aide UNDER FIRE for CNN Leaks

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.30.18

Former President Barack Obama’s Intelligence Director found himself in hot water this week, following a House report that claims the senior aide “misled” Congress about leaking ‘Trump Dossier’ details to CNN.

The revelations published by the House Intelligence Committee reveal James Clapper intentionally leaked sensitive material surrounding the infamous ‘Steele Dossier’ to CNN after the 2016 presidential election.

The former Obama aide is now facing serious legal and ethical questions over how and why he leaked the information to media outlets and whether he acted alone.

“When initially asked about leaks related to the ICA in July 2017, former DNI Clapper flatly denied ‘discussing the dossier [compiled by Steele], or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists’,” the report states.

It goes on to add that Clapper “subsequently acknowledged discussing the ‘dossier with CNN journalist Jake Tapper,’ and admitted that he might have spoken with other journalists about the same topic.”
