First, Obama mocked Trump at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner in 2011.
And teh mocking continued on the Jimmy Kimmel show when he "dropped mike" with a stupid retort to a Trump tweet: "At Least I Will Go Down As A President."
Also, panicked Obama ordered black voters to vote for him:
"If I hear anybody saying their vote does not matter, that it doesn't matter who we elect -- read up on your history. It matters. We've got to get people to vote. I will consider it a personal insult -- an insult to my legacy -- if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election. You want to give me a good sendoff? Go vote."Seig Barry! Goose step to the polls.
After the election, he blamed Fake News.
And finally, the Russians.
This week, as the end neared for Barack Obama, he panicked again in his final press conference as president on Wednesday.
From the Boston Herald:
Obama may be leaving the White House, but he’ll return to the political sphere when he believes “our core values may be at stake.”
He ticked off a list of potential triggers: systemic discrimination, suppression of the press and civil rights issues like voter access.
“We are the only country in the advanced world that makes it harder to vote, and not easier,” Obama said, decrying gerrymandering and restrictive voting laws passed in the name of guarding against voter fraud.
Obama put a fine point on it, using one of Trump’s new favorite phrases: “This whole notion of voting fraud, this is something that has constantly been disproved. This is fake news.”So Obama is setting himself up to be another civil rights leader with all that "Hands Up" Justice for Tawana Brawley, Crystal Mangum, and Michael D. Brown B.S.
He'll be like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton but with Prez instead of Rev as his first name.
What does Obama leave behind? What does the Left leave behind?
Republicans will repeal Obamacare.
The wars he said he ended in Iraq and Afghanistan drag on.
Race relations are worse.
Not a single crook on Wall Street has gone to prison on Obama's watch.
Obama added $9 trillion to the national debt without winning one war, rebuilding the economy, or achieving anything that will last past the end of this year.
Hell, even Hoover built part of a dam.
The nation did not prosper. The seas still rose and fell with the tides. One plus one still equaled two.
And his minions -- gullible and unlovable as they may be -- know in their heart of heart that he failed and they failed.
And so they curse the wind as it smacks them in the face.
From the Hill:
Documentary director Michael Moore held a massive protest Thursday night outside Trump's New York City International Hotel featuring speeches from public figures including actors Robert De Niro and Mark Ruffalo.
The protest started at 6 p.m. with De Niro poking fun at Trump by reading imagined tweets from the president-elect. It was followed by speeches from Moore, Alec Baldwin, New York Mayor Bill De Blasio, Ruffalo and the Rev. Al Sharpton, and others.
Moore started off saying it is a "very dangerous" time in the United States, calling Trump a "sociopath."
"With a lot of work on our part, we will stop this man," Moore said. "He will not last four years."
Moore called for "100 days of protest" against Trump as he starts his presidency.In his first inauguration speech, Obama said eight years ago:
To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history, but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.Obama and his flock find themselves on the wrong side of history. For a century, progressives (liberals, socialists, whatever) sought to nationalize health care. They finally did it, and it showed their critics were right.
America has turned its page on Obama. His supporters -- still rabid after all these years -- feel his pain.
And so they stand athwart history and yell stop.
History laughs as it runs over man, again.
In eight years, we shall see just what President Trump accomplished. But to paraphrase what someone not as wise said a while back: "At Least He Will Go Down As A President."
Obama goes down as a Failure.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election will be covered in a sequel, "Trump the Establishment."
