Obama held a presser on Friday before he jetted off for his last free vacation on the backs of American taxpayers; it would appear the press conference was mainly a distraction to what was going on behind the scenes.

Per The Daily Caller:

The day before President Obama’s last press conference of the year, the White House quietly announced his presidential appointments of Dego Adegbile and Catherine Lhamon to six-year terms on the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. Both appointments are aggressive moves for a president on his way out the door.

Obama previously nominated Adegbile to head the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division, but a bipartisan group of senators blocked the nomination in 2014 due to Adegbile’s defense of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Adegbile’s appointment, which will not require congressional approval, left pro-police groups crying foul

Obama doesn’t have to pretend to care about the police anymore, he’s on his way to vacation and then he’s outta here.

Talk about flipping law enforcement the bird.
