The promo above shows Zakaria asking Obama about the Islamic State‘s rise, intercut with footage of American- and Gadsen-flag-waving protestors chanting against the Affordable Care Act and images of a Sandy Hook massacre memorial.

"CNN Special Report: The Legacy of Barack Obama" airs this Wednesday, December 7 at 9 p.m.
