Say or do the wrong thing and your entire career could be in jeopardy. For the most part, those on the left have been responsible for this practice of going into someone’s past simply to destroy them. However, one prominent politician on the left isn’t a fan of this practice.

Obama called the practice self-righteous, and said simply throwing stones isn’t activism and doesn’t help anybody.
