So Barack Obama is the only popular figure in the Democrat Party.
So he’s campaigning for the midterms, because there is no one else to do it.
Previewing his midterm elections campaign message, former President Barack Obama on Friday launched a direct and blistering attack on President Donald Trump and Republicans, and called on Americans to get to the ballot box in November to “restore some semblance of sanity to our politics.”
At one point referencing the “crazy stuff that’s coming out of this White House,” Obama told students and others gathered at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign that even if they don’t agree with Democrats on certain issues, they should still be “concerned with our current course” and want to see a “restoration of honesty and decency and lawfulness in government.”
This guy never met a buzzword he couldn’t “jive” with.
I’ll tell ya what.
Not big on ideas or actual content though.
“It should not be a partisan issue to say that we do not pressure the attorney general or the FBI to use the criminal justice system as a cudgel to punish our political opponents,” he said, in a reference to Trump. “Or to explicitly call on the attorney general to protect members of our own party from prosecution because an election happens to be coming up.”
Obama’s scathing attack on Trump comes during a tumultuous week for the White House and represents a departure for Obama, who has kept a low profile since leaving office. He has typically avoided even mentioning Trump by name in previous speeches.
Not on Friday.
Speaking to a packed auditorium with about 1,100 students, faculty and community members, he said young people are coming of age during a time when the powerful and privileged are pushing back on America’s ideals.
That’s some fucking nerve.
Yeah bud, Donald Trump represents “the powerful and privileged.”
There is no way to elaborate on that claim. It would literally be impossible to do so.
This is the guy fighting the entire world. He is fighting the entire political establishment, the intelligence agencies, lobbyists, multinational corporations, the corporate media – every single bugaboo of the old left, the definition of “the establishment.” And he is fighting against them FOR the most forgotten people in this country.
Claiming that populism is evil is one thing, but saying that populism is somehow also elitism is just a nonsensical statement.
So these people just throw it out there as an insult. Because “fighting the power” is a leftist meme that they can’t stop using even when they have total control over everything.
“It did not start with Donald Trump,” Obama said. “He is a symptom, not the cause. He’s just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years.”
The solution, he said, is not the alleged resistance movement inside the administration, working to thwart Trump’s worst impulses, as described by a senior official who this week penned an anonymous New York Times op-ed. He said that’s not how democracy is supposed to work.
“They’re not doing us a service by actively promoting 90 percent of the crazy stuff that’s coming out of this White House, and then saying, ‘Don’t worry, we’re preventing the other 10 percent,'” he said. “There is actually only one real check on bad policy and abuses of power, and that’s you. You and your vote.”
Remember that time he told illegal immigrants to vote?
They said he was saying something different, but watch the clip – what else can he be saying?
Trump mocked Obama’s speech before supporters in North Dakota.
“I’m sorry, I watched it, but I fell asleep … I found he’s very good – very good for sleeping,” he said.
Later, as he made his pitch for Republican candidates, Trump told his supporters: “Isn’t this much more exciting than listening to President Obama’s speech?”
Yeah, no shit.
Obama reading his teleprompter was the main way he got away with all that insane shit he did – no one could stand listening to him, so no one had any idea what he was doing.
Trump rallies are the best thing on YouTube.
Besides that videos of Alex Jones in Washington.
Jones has officially cucked the President out of being the best thing on YouTube.
I wish Trump would just hire him as Press Secretary.
Obama also unloaded on the Republican Party, saying it has become a home for the politics of “division, of resentment and paranoia” and its members are abdicating their responsibilities by doing nothing “when the president does something crazy.”
Obama blamed the GOP for unwinding campaign finance laws, attacking voting rights, handing out tax cuts without regard to deficits, casting votes to deprive people of their health insurance, rejecting science and undermining alliances. He also questioned a “cozying up” to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“What happened to the Republican Party?” he said.
Obama said it’s not an exaggeration to say the midterm elections are the most important in his lifetime.
“As a fellow citizen, not as an ex-president…I am here to deliver a simple message and that is that you need to vote because our democracy depends on it,” he said.
Nobody is going to vote Democrat.
These people have lost their minds and everybody knows it.
