As January 20, 2017 is fast approaching, liberals are becoming concerned about the amount of executive power a Trump Presidency might hold. In this perfectly sarcastic video, a bearded man donning a Christmas sweater and a Hillary 2016 mug shares his joy of Obama’s history of executive overreach—and his fear of executive orders under President Trump.
The video begins with the man kneeling beside his Christmas tree, happily recalling his past eight Christmas’ under President Obama.
“A President I supported, was watching over us, and using his executive powers for good. To bring peace on earth and joy to the world.” The man says as he reflects on a President Obama ornament hanging from the tree.
Suddenly the man takes a step back and explains that something has ‘changed’ this year.
“I guess everyone goes through phases in their life and I’m in my ‘let’s limit the power of the executive branch’ phase of mine.”
He unconvincingly assures us that he would share these same concerns, regardless of the President.
The bearded man is then seen baking cookies and continuing his sarcastic praise of Obama’s “good executive intentions.”
“If my President bombed a country without congressional approval, I just assumed he had a good reason. Why would the man, whose campaign I donated money to, not have a good reason for everything he does?”
But now he suddenly has a change of heart.
“Now that I’m older, and not because Donald Trump is going to be President, that has nothing to do with this. I guess I’m not in favor of the President being able to unilaterally topple foreign regimes.”
Sitting in front of his MacBook, with a Hillary 2016 sticker on it, he begins smiling while expressing his gratitude for Obama’s NSA PRISM surveillance program.
“I closed my eyes and pictured President Obama personally looking through my emails and internet search history. It made me feel warm inside.”
He then goes on to say, “but now I just don’t like the idea of Donald Trump…I mean any President, surveilling me without a warrant.”
