Barack Obama: Profane Parasite of the Left
A new book describes the former president as self-centered, foul-mouthed, and full of hatred for Donald Trump.
“That corrupt motherf—er.” That’s what Barack Obama reportedly said when he learned that then-President Donald Trump was communicating privately with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the investigation into potential Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.
It’s rich, isn’t it? Obama, the same guy who oversaw the greatest political corruption scandal in American history — the fake, phony, fraudulent “Russia collusion” hoax that allowed his administration to weaponize the Department of Justice and our nation’s intelligence services to spy on then-candidate Trump and continue to spy on him and his team after they’d taken office — is calling Trump corrupt.
The same guy who sicced the IRS, DOJ, FBI, ATF, and OSHA on private American citizens, trampling on their rights for the sole purpose of intimidating and thereby suppressing his political opposition.
Yep, the same guy who was once caught on a hot mic whispering sweet nothings into then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev’s ear about how he’d be better able to compromise our national security and betray our NATO allies on missile defense as soon as he got through his 2012 reelection campaign. “This is my last election,” he quietly told Medvedev, stressing the importance of being able to look tough until after the American people had cast their ballots. “After my election, I have more flexibility.”
And this guy has the nerve to call Donald Trump a “corrupt motherf—er.” Way to keep it classy, 44.
Obama also called Trump “a ‘madman, a 'racist, sexist pig,’ and a ‘f***ing lunatic,’ according to a new book set to release next week by Atlantic reporter Edward-Isaac Dovere,” writes the Washington Examiner’s Michael Lee. “The remarks, reportedly made to donors and political advisers, were a departure from the first three years of Trump’s presidency when Obama rarely spoke out against the man who replaced him.”
Clearly, Obama is consumed with hatred for both the man who succeeded him and for the deplorables who made it happen. We suppose that’s fair enough given that Trump was a clear repudiation of Obama. Yet Obama also seems to have held his own party in contempt throughout his two terms in office — so much so that he never lifted a finger to build it.
As Fox News’s Morgan Phillips reports, “In a chapter entitled ‘Benign Neglect,’ Dovere writes that the section’s namesake is how Obama aides privately described his abandonment of the Democratic Party once in the White House.”
“‘Negligence’ might be more accurate,” writes Dovere, who also observes that Obama carried himself with a “self-assured self-regard.”
“The numbers,” says Dovere, “are hard to ignore: during his eight years in office, Obama oversaw a net loss of 947 state legislative seats, 63 House seats, 11 senators, and 13 governors.”
Essentially, then, Obama was a one-man neutron bomb: He wiped out the party’s human assets while keeping its physical assets intact. His excuse for having used the Democrat Party’s resources whenever it suited him while ignoring the continual need to build the party’s bench? Apparently, he didn’t want to “taint” his presidency by “mucking about in fundraising.”
Concerning Obama’s relationship with the Democrat Party, Dovere described the former president as “a parasite.”
“Parasitical” seems an apt description of the man, though we’d also add “profane” and “petulant.” In any case, Barack Obama continues to polarize the American people, and he continues to remind us why we chose Donald Trump to succeed him.
