Personally, I would like to know who Obama called during those 16 hours of indecision. Who gave him permission.
Well, he probably asked the real director of the White House, Valerie Jarrett. She told him to go play golf while she thought about it. She came to a decision and tolds him to quit after nine holes and get back to the rumpus room before Hillary took complete charge.
Actually, I got that wrong. Jarrett told him to stop playing golf and get to the rumpus room immediately, and being the little boy lost narcissist that he is, he played passive aggresive and finished nine before leaving his game to do as he was told.
