<p>Former President Barack Obama made his first public appearance at the University of Chicago on Monday, where the liberal media <a href="…; target="_blank">championed his return</a>. &ldquo;<strong>Meantime tonight, we&#39;re hearing from former President Obama speaking out in his first public event since leaving office, jumping back into the spotlight and a lot of attention focused on what he would say about his successor, President Trump,</strong>&rdquo; hyped Anchor Lester Holt during <em>NBC Nightly News</em>.</p>

<p>Hillary Clinton super-fan, Andrea Mitchell glorified his return but seemed disheartened that Obama had chosen not to attack President Trump. &ldquo;<strong>Today former President Obama breaking his public silence for the first time since leaving the White House,</strong>&rdquo; he reported. &ldquo;<strong>Back in Chicago, signaling&nbsp;he will not lead the resistance against Donald Trump.</strong>&rdquo;</p>

<p>According to Mitchell, Obama&rsquo;s aides told her that he was &ldquo;<strong>deliberately not mentioning Trump.</strong>&rdquo; &ldquo;<strong>Ignoring the President&#39;s explosive Twitter accusation that Obama wiretapped him, and his other slams,</strong>&rdquo; she explained. As an example of one of Trump&rsquo;s &ldquo;other slams,&rdquo; Mitchell played a clip of the current President saying &ldquo;I inherited a mess.&rdquo; That&rsquo;s the same criticism Obama leveled at his predecessor for eight long years and the media didn&rsquo;t have a problem with it then.&nbsp;</p>
