Jesse Jackson Gave Fox News Troll the Perfect Answer for Why Hillary Lost in Less Than 10 Seconds
President Obama gave his farewell address in his hometown of Chicago on Wednesday, January 11. Facing several thousand of his most ardent supporters, Obama once again offered hope as the bookend to his historic legacy.
"Some of you here tonight or watching at home were there with us in 2004, in 2008, in 2012 - and maybe you still can't believe we pulled this whole thing off," President Obama told the crowd.
In the audience was civil rights activist and two-time Democratic presidential candidate Rev. Jesse Jackson, who garnered 6.6 million votes in his 1988 bid. While often critical of the Obama administration, Jackson has credited the President for doing “'a tremendous job' while facing challenges matched only by those of Lyndon Johnson and Abraham Lincoln."
Fox News commentator Jesse Watters also appeared at the event to ask attendees his notorious array of obnoxious questions.
"What happened with Hillary?" Watters asked Jackson.
"Well somewhere between Russian hacking and corruption and voter suppression may give you an answer," Jackson summed up.
"After all, she did get 3 million more votes," he added, succinctly.
That seemed to termporarily silence Watters.
Jackson spoke on behalf of Hillary Clinton at the 2016 Democratic Convention where he also congratulated Bernie Sanders for "energizing" voters.
A staunch opponent of Donald Trump, Jackson demanded in September that Trump apologize for perpetuating the racist conspiratorial birther lie. He also promised "black voters have plenty to lose with Trump."
