Following news that Hillary Clinton is more popular than President Obama, a little 9-year-old boy in New Orleans decided to get to the bottom of the case and asked Obama during a recent public meeting in the still hurricane ravaged state: “Why do people hate you?”
According to report, the president was said to be “tickled” by the question and answered, “Hey, that’s what I’m talking about. … I did get elected president, so not everybody hates me now. I got a whole lot of votes.”
“If you were watching TV lately, it seems like everybody’s just getting mad all the time. And you know, I think that you’ve got to take it with a grain of salt. Some of it is just what’s called politics,” he added. (Newser)
