A Pennsylvania congressman has finally voiced an opinion many American’s have been wondering themselves. U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly accused former President Obama of staying in the nation’s capital so he could run a “shadow government” to hurt the GOP.
The claim was presented to Republicans during an event north of Pittsburgh. A short video clip captured Kelly’s comment saying that Obama stayed in Washington for only one reason:
Prior to leaving the White House, the Obamas said they were going to stay in the nation’s capital until their daughter Sasha graduates high school. But if there was an underlying agenda, they obviously wouldn’t say it.
Kelly’s spokesman tried to soften his words by saying Kelly was just “sharing the frustration of everyone in the room over how they believe certain Obama administration holdovers” are attempting to throw the Trump administration’s goals.
The chances that this explodes in the Republican’s face is doubtful, but it’s not the first time Obama has been accused of undermining President Trump’s administration. The former president also has ties to questionable groups that point to the foul play, but at the current time, it’s all speculation.
What are your thoughts on Obama staying in Washington to undermine the President’s agenda? Let us know in the comments below.
