In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington.

He’s doing it through a network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing for Action. Normally you’d expect an organization set up to support a politician and his agenda to close up shop after that candidate leaves office, but not Obama’s OFA.

They’re being organized… In the case of these marches and these other protests, these are being organized by a group founded by Obama called Organizing for Action. It’s a radical Alinsky group. It’s got a lot of money and they’re training an army of agitators to sabotage Trump and his policies while at the same time protecting Obama’s legacy.
