It's safe to say that President Barack Obama has ruffled a few feathers with his EU intervention.
Before he even landed in the UK, those on the Leave side of the debate had done all they could to dismiss his views.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson has time and time (and time) again accused the US' head of state of hypocrisy, while Ukip leader Nigel Farage has called him the most anti-British president ever (though he might be well advised to read about George Washington who fought British rule during the American revolution).
Anyway, I digress. And the president's EU intervention has had a positive reception from some as well – the Remain campaign, surprisingly.
Here are some of the best reactions:
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution & unacknowledged by our laws pic.twitter.com/c9j36cRNhs

Given President Obama admires EU so much, surprised he hasn't argued for open borders with Mexico or for foreign courts to run US affairs…

Whilst Remainers can cite respected leaders like Obama in support, French NF leader Marine Le Pen will be flying in to make the Brexit case

President Obama is to ask UK voters to swallow EU membership, allowing our courts to be over-ruled. The US would NEVER EVER countenance it!

Never be so naive as to imagine the US does not overwhelmingly have its own national interest in mind, not the UK's, when discussing the EU.
