The Democrats are in an uproar over President Donald Trump’s alleged interference in the Department of Justice’s criminal investigations, but they seemed to have quickly forgotten the many times Obama clearly wielded his heavy-handed influence over law enforcement during ongoing investigations.
As a report from One America News Network (OAN) points out, in 2009, Obama enraged patriots across the country when he blasted Massachusetts police over their completely lawful actions. After the police arrested Henry Louis Gates Jr., a Harvard law professor, Obama indicated the police had been foolish for arresting a black man and were “guilty of racial profiling.”
Obama’s comments were so egregiously out of line that he was forced to apologize later once he came face to face with the facts.
“My hope is that, as a consequence of this event, this ends up being what I call a teachable moment,” Obama said, according to OAN. “All of us, instead of pumping up the volume, [should] spend a little more time listening to each other.”
That wouldn’t be the last time Obama jumped in and stirred the pot in the middle of an important criminal investigation.
During a 2013 press conference, Obama infamously stated Travyon Martin could have been his son, OAN reported.
“When Travyon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son,” Obama speculated in an effort to garner sympathy for Martin. “Another way of saying that is, Travyon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.”
The problem was the trial involving Martin’s shooting was still under way. So much for learning a lesson.

Obama also weighed in on his desired outcomes of ongoing military sexual harassment trials and stated his desired preference for the outcome of the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton.
But you will never hear these stories on repeat on CNN or MSNBC.
Once again, the Democrats and liberal elites have shown they are more concerned with inflaming propaganda against Trump than actually holding guilty people accountable.
