Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro was laying it down hard after former Attorney General Eric Holder threw some shade on President Trump. Holder has been extremely critical of the Trump Administration since Trump took office. He has even hinted at a possible presidential run himself and has sought to be a strong voice in the so-called ‘resistance.’
It all started when Holder tweeted, “Russian meddling in our elections is a clear and present danger. Fact. Unbelievably no one taking action to prevent harm. Whatever you think of possible Trump involvement all must demand that White House and Congress act to strengthen our electoral systems against the threat-NOW.”

That’s when Shapiro pounced and reminded Holder that if anyone deserves blame for Russian meddling, it’s the Obama Administration. Shapiro replied: “Whoever was president in 2016 sure blew it”

Twitter piled on after that:
Mr. Holder, Why didn’t you? Instead of selling guns to Mexican drug cartels!

Maybe Obama gave too much flexibility after 2012 election. 😂

Take all measures to increase electoral security, except the most basic measure of asking for a government ID to demonstrate that the person casting the ballot is who he or she claims to be

Whoever was incharge of federal law inforcement in the years leading up to 2016 was obviously incompetent.

You are a nobody now, a powerless man with no friends, a felon awaiting indictment. It is all over. Bill & Hillary won't help you & nor will Barack Obama. No one will. Time to reap your whirlwind.

Yeah, Obama and his administration sure dropped the ball in 2016. I guess telling Putin to "knock it off" didn't quite do the trick. He should have added "or else"
