Since leaving the White House, Barack Obama has been desperate to remain relevant.
He and his wife have launched numerous ventures in order to push their agenda.
And Obama just jumped back into politics by throwing a despicable lie at Trump.
Generally, former President’s largely stay out of politics after they leave the White House.
But not Obama, after his eight year reign, he began jumping at the opportunity to publicly support his friends politically, and use his political clout to loudly trash President Trump.
But for the most part, Obama’s attacks on Trump have been less direct.
He would rarely state his name, and only infer that he is referring to his successor.
That has all changed, now Obama is both ramping up the intensity, and outrageousness of his lies against Trump, while attacking him personally.
He launched his attacks against Trump during a Monday interview on CNN with Anderson Cooper.
Obama said, “I think we have to worry when one of our major political parties is willing to embrace a way of thinking about our democracy that would be unrecognizable and unacceptable even five years ago or a decade ago,” he said before citing voter integrity laws passed in multiple states. “And when that’s all done against the backdrop of large numbers of Republicans having been convinced wrongly that there was something fishy about the last election, we’ve got a problem.”
He then goes on to push the big lie about the Charlottesville, VA rally of 2017, falsely claiming that President Trump referred to neo-Nazis and white supremacists as “good people.”
The former President continued, “I thought that there were enough guardrails institutionally that even after Trump was elected that you would have the so-called Republican establishment who would say okay, you know, it’s a problem if the White House isn’t – doesn’t seem to be concerned about Russian meddling, or it’s a problem if we have a president who is saying neo-Nazis are marching in Charlottesville, there are good people on both sides.”
In reality, Trump very harshly condemned neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
But he also correctly points out that not everybody at the event fits that category, and many were simply there to protest the tearing down of Confederate monuments.
“You had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides,” Trump said the day after the rally, before adding, “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists – because they should be condemned totally.”
Everything Obama said is an outright lie.
Which shouldn’t be surprising considering he spent eight years in the White House lying to Americans on a daily basis.
