However, he said that the political moment required a pushback and called for better discourse.

"It shouldn't be Democratic or Republican to say that we don't target groups of people because of what they look like or how they pray", Obama said.

"It's as old as time". Southern California is a key battleground as Democrats work to oust Republicans from their stranglehold on elected positions in the area.

"Obama is a great messenger to get them to vote for Democrats", Pfeiffer said.

Obama has long held that he would only step back into the political arena if he thought that America's political norms were in danger.

President Donald Trump has been a busy boy today, calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate the author of this week's op-ed assuring Americans there is resistance inside the Trump administration. "He is a symptom, not a cause".

The other two less-than-subservient attendees were eventually replaced by blonde women. The Trump campaign did not return a request for comment Saturday morning.

His comments come as Obama delivered a speech damning Donald Trump for "capitalising on resentment that politicians have been fanning for years".

NO one does the cool burn quite so deftly as Barack Obama.

"It should not be a partisan issue to say that we do not pressure the attorney general or the Federal Bureau of Investigation to use the criminal justice system as a cudgel to punish our political opponents".

But California Republicans said Mr Obama's appearance would have little impact, and may even help their party. "That unfortunately has been a spiral that we have been on for the last couple of years". "It is apathy, it is indifference, it is us not doing what we are supposed to do". "Saying that Nazis are bad?" - his denunciation of the media - "I complained plenty about Fox News. you never heard me threaten to shut them down" to his desire to build a border wall with Mexico.

On his Twitter account, Trump did not respond directly but instead shared tweets attacking Obama, including one which accused him of "slick speaking" and being responsibile for "school shootings". "I'm sorry, I watched it, but I fell asleep", the president said. "If I was the Republicans, I would be very nervous about this".

Mr Trump said Mr Obama was trying to take credit for this "incredible thing that's happening to our country". "'I don't recognize what's going on in Washington right now - that's not what I believe, '" Obama said.

Since leaving office, Obama had avoided directly criticizing Trump and made a calculated effort not to utter his successor's name.

"That is not a check, I'm being serious here".

Mr. Obama's decision to enter the fray is not without risks. Obama was "a lot lower key than yesterday's speech".

If the Democrats are able to gain control of the Houses of Congress, they would be able to severely hinder Trump's policies.

But Pirro and other Trump supporters immediately slammed the speech. In the social media targeted clip, he said that "basic norms and principles" have been "increasingly violated" and pushed young people to get out and vote.
