Obama, the bitter and vindictive lame duck
Imagine if Hillary Rodham Clinton had won the election instead of Trump. Do you think Obama would have suddenly reversed our Israel policy? Would Obama have expelled Russian diplomats?
The answer, of course is no, he would have quietly passed on these issues and let HRC handle them, and it’s hard to imagine that Russian “hacking” would have been an issue at all.
Obama is in bitter and vindictive mode and the goal is to sabotage Trump’s presidency by giving him a foreign policy mess to start out with.
