A few days ago, Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway called on President Obama to try to shut down the mostly peaceful protests against Donald Trump’s election that have taken place across the country.

Today in Germany, the President responded to this absurd and un-democratic request in exactly the way it deserved: “Get used to it.”

President Obama won’t try to call off protests against Donald Trump, he said Thursday, ignoring pleas from the president-elect’s advisers to denounce the nationwide demonstrations.

“I would not advise people who feel strongly or are concerned about some of the issues that have been raised over the course of the campaign, I would not advise them to be silent,” Obama said during a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Obama said protests are just something Trump would have to get used to as leader of the free world.

“I’ve been the subject of protests during the course of my eight years,” he said. “And I suspect that there’s not a president in our history that hasn’t been subject to these protests.”
