Obama said Merchant was “not the person you want” to oversee the election.
“It’s like the Raiders were playing the Chiefs, and instead of the referee who’s been calling the game for 20 years, they realized someone said, ‘I’ve spent the past three hours drinking beer and thinking about the Chiefs at last year’s Super Bowl.’ were ranting about how they actually beat the Bucks. They look fair. Let’s hold them accountable.
