Washington Post Reporter: Obama ‘Had to Do DACA’ Because of Congress


[See NewsBusters for more.] Appearing on CBS This Morning, Tuesday, Washington Post congressional correspondent Ed O’Keefe justified the questionably legal DACA action by Barack Obama, spinning that the Democrat was forced by Congress to make the move. Ed O’Keefe also attacked Donald Trump for not meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. He lectured, “[Trump’s] got to kiss the ring.” Talking to co-host Charlie Rose, O’Keefe spun Obama’s 2012 action via executive order: “President Obama had to do DACA because Congress wasn't acting on immigration reform and he felt there was an immediate need and a fix.”
