Barack Obama hates Donald Trump.
Trump campaigned on erasing Obama’s anti-American agenda, so it’s not surprising Obama holds hard feelings.
But you won’t believe what line Obama crossed when he attacked Trump.
Obama appeared at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago.
Author David Eggers asked Obama how Americans could rally for “social change.”
That’s when Obama launched into a rant that many observers believe was an attack on Trump.
Obama cited America’s failure to act on so-called “climate change” and ranted that racism, anger and hate as well “mommy issues” kept Americans from enacting anti-American and job-killing regulations in response to the climate change hoax.
“The reason we don’t” invest in climate change policies, Obama said, “is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism — mommy issues. I mean I, you know, we, we are we are fraught with stuff and, and, and so if that’s the case then the single most important thing that we have to invest in is not all, and, and — look I’m a huge supporter of science and technological research and social science and, you know, evidence-based learning and all that good stuff; people call me Spock for a reason. I believe in reason and logic and all these Enlightenment values but the thing that really we have to invest in is people we got to get people to figure out how they work together in a you know how do we get people to work together in a cooperative thoughtful constructive way.”
It’s unclear what the former president was referring to when he said “mommy issues.”
“I was having a conversation with a friend, who was depressed about the current course of our country — it’s a conversation that happens a lot,” Obama said later. “I had to remind him that this is what happens. Societies are these incredibly complex, organic things that sometimes moves forward and sometimes takes a step back.”
“This is a heavy burden,” he said. “But what a joyous burden to have this grand adventure where you can literally remake the world right now because it badly needs remaking. If you could blindly choose when you wanted to be born, you’d choose now … Or — maybe two years ago.”
Obama attacked Trump ferociously during the midterm election season.
But accusing Trump of having mommy issues shows just how far off the deep end Obama fell.
