Just a few days after a purportedly friendly meeting with Donald Trump at the White House, haughty, pompous, supercilious, know-it-all Barack Obama held a press conference, where, with a smile and an air of instructive concern, he proceeded to insult Donald Trump.
The event preceded an upcoming apology tour where the president has plans to explain to befuddled world leaders how “deplorable” voters who “cling to guns, religion, and xenophobia” managed to upset the American electoral process.
Let’s face it; Barack Obama is a quintessential liberal and the problem with liberals is that they are notorious for pointing out splinters while struggling with sequoias of their own.
Take for instance Obama warning that Trump’s “temperament” will undermine his progress unless he “corrects” it. This advice comes from a guy whose two-term vindictiveness includes this press conference and for eight-years, depending on the topic, has been continually on display.
Barack Obama warning Trump to correct his temperament is like Madonna advising post-menopausal women to act their age.
Lest we forget, America’s Nobel Peace Prize winner has spitefully retaliated against everyone who criticized him from the police to the Tea Party to Fox News to Bibi Netanyahu.
At the press conference, Obama attempted to provide a red-meat reality check by saying that Trump will not be able to fulfill his campaign pledges. The president said, “Whatever you bring to this office, this office has a habit of magnifying and pointing out. And hopefully, then you correct for it.”
Lacking self-awareness, clearly, Obama doesn’t realize that although the first part of his statement is 100% true, he never put the correction part into practice himself.
The president also pointed out that Trump is more “pragmatic” than “ideological,” which an ideologue like Obama probably doesn’t realize is a compliment, not an insult.
Although Barack Obama has a list of gaffes a mile long, that didn’t stop him from admonishing Trump for saying what Obama calls “inaccurate” things at rallies.
The president cautioned that “everybody is paying attention” and “markets move” when presidents speak. What Obama didn’t mention was how favorably the market has rebounded since Donald Trump was elected, nor did he cite examples of his own glaring inexactitude.
Take for instance when “Magical Mystery Tour” Barack, on the campaign trail in 2008 shared, “I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go, not counting Alaska and Hawaii.”
Obama also forgot how he called a Navy corpsman a “corpse man”, signed a guest book in London’s Westminster Abbey, “24 May 2008,” when it was 2011, and how, after 12 people were killed by a Kansas twister, he lamented that, “Ten thousand people died [and] an entire town [was] destroyed.”
Instead, after praising President-Elect Donald Trump for pulling off “one of the biggest political upsets in history,” and doing it despite George Soros’s influence, and 3 million illegals voting, Barack Obama chose to couch his commendations in a series of snide, denigrating remarks.
Ignoring his own razor-thin resume, the former community organizer, whose race and charismatic speaking style catapulted him to the presidency, predicted that once Trump is in office, “reality [will have] a way of asserting itself.”
Ah! So, “reality asserting itself” must be what caused Obama to waste $800+ billion dollars on a failed stimulus package. And if that’s true, then “assertive realism” must also be what caused Obama to give hoards of illegal felons, unaccompanied minors, and ISIS sympathizers permission to invade the US.
Pesky ‘”assertive reality” is likely also the reason Obama left four Americans to die in Benghazi, destroyed the US healthcare system, swelled unemployment numbers to unprecedented proportions, and contributed to 35% of the US population ending up on welfare rolls.
And finally, “realistic assertion” can be blamed for instigating Barack Obama to foment racial violence, diss our ally Israel, anger Vladimir Putin, support the Arab Spring, hand a nuke to Iran, walk guns over the border to Mexican drug cartels, and pack a pallet with $400 million in cash and load it onto a US cargo plane and deliver it to a genocidal terrorist state.
Either way, the president took the opportunity to say that, notwithstanding “concerns” about turning the White House (which is the People’s House, not his house) over to a pushy Republican, he has confidence that once Trump is inaugurated the billionaire real estate mogul’s enthusiasm will be dampened.
When he warned that “the federal government and our democracy is not a speedboat, it’s an ocean liner,” those words paid homage to Michelle, the woman who managed to spend well over $100 million tax dollars on lavish “ocean liner”-like vacations.
And the hammering didn’t stop there.
Clearly disgruntled, America’s most infamous sound bite whore actually had the brazen effrontery to say this about some of the things Trump said on the campaign trail, “You know, there are certain things that made for good, good sound bites, but don’t always translate into good policy.”
Wait! Wasn’t it the “Hope and Change” merchant whose campaign sound bites promised that if he was elected “the rise of the oceans would slow and our planet heal”? Then, after all the “good sound bites”, blinded-by-a-beam Obama’s policies reeked havoc on America while simultaneously submerging the world in chaos and bloodshed.
In the end, Obama is well aware that Trump being elected is a full repudiation of his atrocious presidency, devastated political party, and detrimental ideology. Proving once again that, in an effort to regain credibility, liberal hypocrites like Barack Obama, to distract from their own sequoia, will focus on a splinter.
