So proud of President Obama

   I don't know about you, but yesterday President Obama gave a press conference during which a right wing reporter actually asked if he felt he was partially to blame for the Trump phenomena.

   After 8 years of listening to this racist ranting of the right and Republicans, he kept his cool and answered, as he always does, calmly and coolly.  President Obama makes you feel proud you voted for him.
