Barack Obama alleges that President Trump’s elevation to the Oval Office was due to his ability to appeal to the racist Americans who voted for him.
This is a typically shallow analysis from our pseudointellectual former president, who obviously cannot tolerate that his presidency was rejected by Trump’s election and sees his opponents through a prism of race and crude stereotypes.
He has no understanding of what the Trump revolution was about. It had little to do with hating anyone, and a lot to do with loving this country that the Left is in the process of destroying.
But the narcissist Obama thinks this is all about him and the color of his skin.
Nearly half this country voted for Trump in 2016 and again in 2020. For those who did, here is the middle finger from Obama.
From an excerpt, from his new book, as quoted by CNN.
“It was as if my very presence in the White House had triggered a deep-seated panic, a sense that the natural order had been disrupted,” Obama writes. “Which is exactly what Donald Trump understood when he started peddling assertions that I had not been born in the United States and was thus an illegitimate president. For millions of Americans spooked by a Black man in the White House, he promised an elixir for their racial anxiety.”
Obama says the blossoming of Republican racism began with the selection by John McCain of Sarah Palin as his running mate.
“Through Palin, it seemed as if the dark spirits that had long been lurking on the edges of the modern Republican Party — xenophobia, anti-intellectualism, paranoid conspiracy theories, an antipathy toward Black and brown folks — were finding their way to center stage,” Obama writes.
So much for uniting the country.
