Interviewer Scott Pelley of 60 Minutes supplied the ignorance. He appears to have no more knowledge of what transpired during the past four years than does, say, a Whoopi Goldberg or a Kathy Griffin.
Barack Obama supplied the scare. His solution to make the right half of America as ignorant as the left would do Trotsky proud.
Pelleyâs ignorance flared throughout the embarrassingly sycophantic interview, but it reached something of a crescendo with his and Obamaâs elaborate discussion on the etiquette of presidential transitions.
While images played of the Obamas welcoming the Trumps to the White House, Obama blathered on about the âset of traditionsâ that presidents have always followed of instructing various agencies âto cooperateâ with the incoming administration. The outgoing president, Obama pontificated, âowes the new president a chance to do their best.â
Pelley nodded approvingly, perhaps even unaware of what was going on behind the scenes while the always gracious Obama was greeting the brutish Donald Trump. On the very day at the very moment Trump was being inaugurated, National Security Advisor Rice sent to âselfâ a peculiar email. It read:
President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities âby the book.â The President stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.
Rice was trying to absolve Obama of signing off on the coup then underway to sabotage Trumpâs presidency on the back of the Russia collusion hoax.
