The White House said Wednesday that President Obama “wears with a badge of honor” the Republicans’ criticism that he’s behaving as an emperor as he prepares to issue an executive order on immigration.

Responding to an aide to Speaker John A. Boehner referring to the president Wednesday as “Emperor Obama,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said it doesn’t bother Mr. Obama.

“We’ve heard this kind of rhetoric about lawlessness from the House Republicans for some time,” Mr. Earnest said. “The president is somebody who’s willing to examine the law, review the law and use every element of that law to make progress for the American people. And if that is something that Republicans are critical of, that’s, you know, maybe a criticism that the president wears with a badge of honor.”
