The full replay is below.

Video is above. President Obama weighed in on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s campaign manger John Podesta’s emails as released by Wikileaks and the effect on the election, “What is it about our political ecosystem, what is it about the state of our democracy where the leaks of what were frankly not very interesting emails that didn’t have any explosive information in them… ended up being an obsession, and the fact that the Russians were doing this was not an obsession?”

He also spoke about President-Elect Donald Trump’ possibly undoing his legacy, including his signature legislation, Obamacare, “The federal government is an aircraft carrier. It’s not a speedboat.”

He was also asked about his future plans and he said, “I think it is important for me to recharge. I think it’s important for me to reflect.” He quipped, “It’s important for me to get back in my wife’s good graces.”

Continuing, he added, “I don’t anticipate that I suddenly just vanish, but I think it’s important to give the incoming administration some space.”

The interview was broadcast originally on Monday, December 12, 2016.
