A lot of what Obama has done for this country will be overturned when Trump takes office. Obama doesn’t want people to forget him. Don’t worry, Obama, we won’t forget how awful you were.
President Obama’s final spree of policy changes and initiatives is part of a “desperate frenzy” to leave a legacy which will largely be reversed, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told “Fox News Sunday.”
“His legacy is like one of those dolls that, as the air comes out of it, shrinks and shrink and shrinks,” Gingrich said. “The things he’s done this week will be turned around … He’s in this desperate frenzy.”
Even while the first family is on vacation in Hawaii, Obama has had an active week, designating vast swaths of the Arctic and Atlantic oceans as off limits to future oil leases while planning more detainee transfers out of Guantanamo Bay and other moves.
Gingrich, though, said the bulk of Obama’s legacy stems from executive actions, “almost all of which will be repudiated by Trump.”
