Harmeet Dhillon Appears on Fox News @Night To Discuss Obama’s Netflix Deal
According to Dhillon (Video Transcript):
Thanks Mike, happy to be here. Well, I think what’s really tragic here is the death of perception of irony. I think the president is being tongue in cheek and also venting the fact that there are innumerable useless investigations going on at the house level and they don’t result in anything. They are driving this administration through the mud for vicious reasons and yet the type of swamp activity that you see with former presidents goes unquestioned. So, while I don’t think there is anything particularly suspicious about the Obama media deals, some presidents have definitely enriched themselves very greatly in a very fishy way. I think president Clinton and his wife are the poster children of those but many others, like president Carter and the Bushes have gone on and lead lives – gone back to their private lives. So, I think this is much ado about nothing, the president is venting over the witch hunts that he suffered while in office.
Well, what Cathy just said is a bunch of nonsense. I think it’s frankly irresponsible to speculate about the president’s motives and his profits. Anybody with business sense knows that to give up your successful business as a real estate investor and be in the presidency is definitely a net financial loss. This president turns over every one of his paychecks to different proper causes, the parks, different government agencies and so forth. His family has had to give up their different businesses and their assets – put their assets into trusts. The little petty jealousy and nastiness that we see here is really unfortunate and really beneath contempt, frankly.
