I wish I would have tweeted this. I have literally been mentioning this moment in history to my husband for weeks now. This is something that needs to be shouted from the rooftops because it is proof positive that the attack against the Trump administration and former National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn by the Democrats and their allies in the media is nothing but manufactured outraged meant to inflict harm on Trump’s presidency.
As you think about the “unnamed sources” quoted by numerous supposedly reputable media outlets regarding Trump, Flynn, and the Russians, in addition to the admittance by these “unnamed sources” that they have no proof whatsoever of the allegations that are being reported as breaking news fact, check out this tweet by Senator Ted Cruz from the Great State of Texas.
Breaking: ABC releases video of POTUS promising "more flexibility" w/ Russia after election. Media outraged: https://t.co/KF0Bw7qSgt

Of course, he’s being facetious because there was no media outrage. Why not? Because the POTUS in question here was Barack Obama caught on a hot mic as he made a promise to the Russians in March 2012, eight months before the general election of his re-election bid.
Barack Obama: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”
Dimitri Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”
So, what did Obama mean by “more flexibility?” Who knows. The media didn’t push to find out. There was not a breaking news story about it for 24 hours to discuss what sinister and dangerous connections or promises that Barack Obama made to the Russians.
One would think that the media would have come back to that statement after Obama mocked then-GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s belief that Russia was the greatest geopolitical threat that we faced. In response to this, Obama said, “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”
But, crickets. Silence. Nothing. Nada. Zilch from Obama’s buddies in the media.
Of course not. Back then they were in protectionist mode. Protect the president at all costs. Now, however, the game has changed and they’re in hyper attack mode. Find anything and everything to mock and attack Trump on, including whether or not he wears a bathrobe.
I’m sure the Democrats and the mainstream media wishes they could scrub that video off the internet. Maybe their buddies in social media will do them a solid and take care of that.
WATCH Obama promise the Russians “more flexibility” after his re-election.
