White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said President Obama wears the ‘emperor’ label “with a badge of honor” during a press briefing Wednesday. Responding to rhetoric from critics of Obama’s impending executive action on immigration reform, Earnest said the president has no problem using the law to make “progress.”
We heard rhetoric for some time. Their most recent statement referred to ‘Emperor Obama,’” Earnest said. “The fact is the president is somebody who is willing to examine the law, review the law and use every element of that law to make progress for the American people and that’s a criticism the president wears with badge of honor.
