Obama Scolds The Media For Hillary Clinton’s Election Loss

During President Obama’s final press conference on Friday, he was asked about whether he thought the Russians were responsible for Hillary Clinton’s election loss.

Obama took this opportunity to scold the media for their coverage of the election, “The truth is is that there was nobody here who didn’t have some sense of what kind of effect it might have. I am finding it a little curious that everybody is suddenly acting surprised that this looked like it was disadvantaging Hillary Clinton, because you guys wrote about it every day. Every single leak, about every little juicy tidbit of political gossip. Including John Podesta’s risotto recipe.”

Obama continued: “This was an obsession that dominated the news coverage. So I do think it’s worth us reflecting how it is that a presidential election of such importance, of such moment, with so many big issues at stake, and such a contrast between the candidates, came to be dominated by a bunch of these leaks.”
