An old press conference of Obama’s has just emerged above the liberal media firestorm. This shuts down the claims of Russian “election hacking” once and for all.
As Mueller and his team look into the allegations and the media churns the waters over the “Russiagate” scandal, an unlikely figure rises up from the past to deny Russia’s ability to hack the elections: none other than Barack Obama himself. He’s made the left look rather foolish. (via Fox News)

At a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Obama was criticizing Trump for alleging that the Democrats could rig the election in Hillary Clinton’s favor. In the press conference he states, “There is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections.” He went on to say that there was “no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances that will happen this time.”
Former FBI Director James Comey echoed similar words when questioned about the ability of cyber criminals to hack the election. “The beauty of the American voting system is that it is dispersed among the 50 states, and it is clunky as heck,” he said. He went on to say that the decentralized and localized behavior of the voting process makes it very hard to be hacked.
The old video comes as a bucket of cold water to liberals who want to believe the Russians hacked the election in Trump’s favor as part of some “collusion” conspiracy. Yet they persist, even with their beloved Democratic president saying it’s not possible, investigations into the allegations failing to turn up any evidence showing that such a collusion exists, or the fact that Russia and the U.S. military have been at odds in Syria the past couple of weeks. Liberals are continuing to hold up the silly narrative that the election was stolen from them.
If Obama can’t get liberals to see the truth, who can?
What’s bizarre about the statement in the video is that Obama has refused to criticize his own party (and their media lapdogs) for continuing to say that Russia “hacked” the election. He knows it’s not true. They know it’s not true. He even told them that it isn’t true. And yet they still continue to say it, just because that’s what liberals want to hear right now. They can’t face the fact that they decided to run an out-of-touch career politician who supports taxpayer-funded abortions, and it cost them.
Obama’s statement was correct. The election couldn’t be rigged because it’s too “decentralized,” and it’s hard to imagine how anyone would “hack” tens of millions of paper ballots being cast in thousands of different locations nationwide.
However, there is some information suggesting that Democrats rigged the primaries against Bernie Sanders so Hillary Clinton could win. This is in contrast to the complete lack of evidence that Trump’s win had anything to do with the Russians. It looks like Obama was right after all: despite Democrats’ best efforts, you can’t hack an election.
