WH: Calling Obama Emperor Is ‘Criticism the President Wears with a Badge of Honor’

Wednesday at the White House daily press briefing, press secretary Josh Earnest said President Barack Obama will wear the label of “emperor,” like a “badge of honor.”

Earnest  was responding  to a question about House Speaker John Boehner’s spokesman Michael Steel’s statement that, “If Emperor Obama ignores the American people and announces an amnesty plan that he himself has said over and over again exceeds his constitutional authority, he will cement his legacy of lawlessness and ruin the chances for congressional action on this issue – and many others.”

Earnest  said “We heard this kind of rhetoric from the house republicans for some time. I know their most recent statement referred to ‘Emperor Obama. You know The fact is the president is somebody who is willing to examine the law, review the law and use every element of that law to make progress for the American people and if that is something republicans are critical of, that’s maybe a criticism the president wears with badge of honor I think.”
