Obama, Clinton, and Sanders Could Stop the Riots But They Just Watch
Is it just me or have you also noticed that Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and President Obama have been silent about the protests?
The very people who have the power to stop these protests and riots with just a few well-spoken words have been completely silent on the issue.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, asked Thursday about the protests, said the president believes the right to free speech should be protected.
He added, “It is a right that should be exercised without violence. And there are people who are disappointed in the outcome. And the president’s message in the Rose Garden was it’s not surprising that people are disappointed in the outcome, but it’s important for us to remember, a day or two after the election, that we’re Democrats and Republicans, but we’re Americans and patriots first.”
