Obama’s speech imploring us to vote to remain in the EU included the dangled worm of this trade treaty. Telling us “hey guys, if you leave the union then American corporations won’t be able to undermine your democratic processes, take away your rights and screw up the environment! What is wrong with you people? Don’t you want to be slaves?”
Yeah, sorry, we’re just ungrateful.
