Maybe it’s only “interference” in an election when a Russian does it?
Interfering with French election (as he did Israeli election and Brexit when President). No problem. https://t.co/Fh1n4LBH9G

Exit question: This is odd, no?
Has a former president explicitly endorsed a candidate in another country's election before? Strange times. https://t.co/tztNU0eC7f

Exit question 3: Do French people even like Obama?
do French people care what he thinks? https://t.co/AymqRihTnD
