Since he mercifully left the White House Barack Obama has talked major trash about his successor, but can never bring himself to use the words “Donald Trump.” All of that changed Friday when the former president actually uttered the forbidden name of the current President. This of course wasn’t done to praise Trump for the spectacular job he’s doing. Obama was talking more trash because the booming economy is making him look like an even bigger failure.
Obama gave a speech at University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign. According to CNN this speech was rehearsal for the bullshit Obama plans on unleashing on the campaign trail to help democrats in the midterm elections.
Obama was bitching about moments in history where there is “backlash to progress” and then said this:
“You happen to be coming of age during one of those moments. It did not start with Donald Trump ― he is a symptom, not the cause. He is just capitalizing on resentment that politicians have been fanning for years. A fear, an anger that is rooted in our past but is also borne in our enormous upheavals that have taken place in your brief lifetimes,” said Obama.
Oh snap! Obama said “Trump.” If he says it two more times, Trump will actually appear and hang Obama on a meathook. Also I think they could be a swarm of bees. Obama however didn’t invoke the feared name three times (he did say “Trump” twice), so he is safe for now.
As for what he said after daring to say the name of “He Who Shall Not Be Named,” it’s a complete load of shit and shows a glaring lack of self-awareness.
Obama spent years stoking liberal fears and dividing the nation along racial, political, and economic lines. His presidency is the reason the left is so f*cking insane in the Age of Trump. His fear mongering has left liberals with a false sense of moral and intellectual superiority as well as a deep hatred for anything they disagree with.
On the flip side of that Trump is not fanning the flames of ager and hatred. That all comes from the the hallowed out shell of liberalism that Obama’s destructive presidency left behind. Trump talks about making America safer and more prosperous. I know those things offend liberals, but they are actually virtuous and positive goals.
Obama had other moments lacking in self-awareness as well:
“It shouldn’t be Democratic or Republican to say that we don’t target groups of people because of what they look like or how they pray,” said Obama.
What about targeting people because of their political affiliation? Who should say the we don’t use the IRS to target conservative groups?
“It should not be Democratic or Republican, it should not be partisan to say that we don’t pressure the Department of Justice or the FBI to use the criminal justice system as a cudgel to punish our political opponents. Or to explicitly call for the attorney general to protect members of own party from prosecution because elections happen to be coming up. I am not making that up. That is not hypothetical,” Obama said.
You mean like how Obama had his Justice Department bury the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation before the elections so she could win rather than being indicted for crimes the FBI said she had committed? Or how Obama had his Justice Department spy on the Trump campaign in an attempt to discredit him? I’m not making that up either and it’s definitely not hypothetical. The difference is, Trump is just talking, while Obama acted on this.
Obama plans to hit the campaign trail for democrats this fall and it should go over about as well as his presidency where democrats lost thousands of seats across the country. That’s great news, but so is the fact that he’s finally willing to use Trump’s name. I’m pretty sure this will result in some hilarious tweets from the President and Trump may even give Obama a cool nickname.
