Barack Obama is back.
The former President threw himself into the midterm campaign.
But he used four words to attack Donald Trump that will make your blood boil.
Obama spoke at a rally in Ohio for Democrat Gubernatorial candidate Rob Cordray.
The former President laid into President Trump without using his name.
He claimed to say America was not a healthy democracy because voters did not reject “bigots and fear mongers.”
It was impossible to avoid the fact that he smeared the President of the United States.
“People are stressed. And they’re anxious. And it seems that all the chatter and anger on television doesn’t match up to their lives. And it frays our civic trust. And it makes people feel that the game is rigged, and nobody’s looking out for them. And historically, in those kinds of conditions, that’s ripe for opportunists to try to exploit America’s history of division: racial, ethnic, religious.”
Obama went on to say as the November elections near, politicians will pull out the old “playbook” of pitting people against each other.
“In a healthy democracy, when everybody’s participating and paying attention, and listening, voting, people of good will in both parties, they call out bigots and fear mongers,” the former president told the crowd. “And then they work to compromise. And they work to get things done. But, when there’s a vacuum in our democracy, when we don’t vote, when we take our basic rights for granted, other voices fill the void. Demagogues get out there. They promise simple fixes to complicated problems.”
Still without mentioning any names, Obama claimed these “demagogues” will make it harder for young people, minorities and poor people to vote, all while giving billionaires “outside influence.”
Democrats always have one play in their playbook.
Call Republicans racist.
It failed in 2016, but they continue to try and smear Trump with this label.
