Today, as news was breaking that his administration was committing yet another unilateral and unlawful executive overreach, Obama was overheard telling French President Francois Hollande that as President, he can do whatever he wants.
The French president, here in the U.S. on a state visit, toured Thomas Jefferson’s plantation estate with Obama, Monday afternoon.
At 4:45 POTUS and president Hollande walked out from a portico and strolled in Front of your pool with Leslie Bowman, president of the Monticello Foundation. Looking at a terrace she said that Jefferson loved to admire the landscape from there. POTUS said that he’d like to take a look and seemed delighted to “break the protocol”.
“That’s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want” he quipped, walking to the terrace with his guest and Ms. Bowman. Pool now in the mansion as the leaders will come and visit Jefferson’s study.
Kinda sums up his whole presidency, doesn’t it?
