Report: Advisers Working On Mid-January ‘Farewell Tour’ for Obama

On Wednesday’s broadcast of “Fox & Friends,” Fox News Chief National Correspondent reported, “I’m hearing this morning that, quietly behind the scenes, advisers to President Obama are working on sort of a farewell tour in mid-January.”

Henry said, “I’m hearing this morning that, quietly behind the scenes, advisers to President Obama are working on sort of a farewell tour in mid-January. I’m told there’s at least three cities, that President Obama will be giving major speeches in arenas. one of them is Chicago, his sort of adopted hometown. they’re looking at the United Center there, where the Chicago Bulls play.”

He continued, “And what it tells us is maybe President Obama doesn’t quite want to leave the stage yet. We heard Joe Biden doesn’t want to. He’s already talking this week about running for president in 2020. But there’s a vacuum, guys, at the top of the Democratic Party. You’ve got a limping [House Minority Leader Representative] Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). You talked to [Representative] Tim Ryan (D-OH) last hour, who almost took her out as the leader. You’ve got [Representative] Keith Ellison (D-MN), who’s very controversial as a potential Democratic National Committee Chair. So what this tells me, I think why it’s significant about a farewell tour from President Obama, is two things. Vacuum at the top of the Democratic Party, and he wants to sort of frame things, in mid-January right before Donald Trump’s inaugural. maybe he’ll be tougher than he has been in recent days. But the other thing is, remember when George W. Bush left the stage, said i’m not going to second-guess my successor? It looks like President Obama, maybe because of that vacuum and the disarray on the Democratic side, is setting himself up as the loyal opposition.”
