Jeanine Pirro Points the Finger at Obama: ‘You, Barack, You Elected Donald Trump’

Judge Jeanine Pirro dedicated her opening statement on Saturday night to a lengthy bashing of former President Barack Obama. Calling Obama’s campaign speech hammering President Donald Trump “a full-throttle savage attack on the president” Pirro ripped apart Obama’s Trump criticism point by point from his claim that Trump is “capitalizing on resentments politicians have been fanning for years” to his statement, “How hard can that be? Saying that Nazis are bad.” Yet, her most scathing words were reserved for his claims about social justice and the cost of Obama’s lying ways. “Your version of America is not the America we want,” Pirro said. “To us, social justice is about justice for American citizens and not illegal criminals. To us social justice is about taking care of veterans who come back to our shores with fewer limbs than when they left. To us, social justice is not about burning our Continue reading "Jeanine Pirro Points the Finger at Obama: ‘You, Barack, You Elected Donald Trump’"

Obama Shares a Story at Anaheim Rally About the Time He Got Booted from Disneyland

Former President Barack Obama got California Democrats fired up at an Anaheim rally today, and he opened with a pretty crazy anecdote about the time he was booted from Disneyland. Yes, you’re reading that correctly. Obama talked up some candidates running for office and told the crowd in two months they can help bring some “sanity” back into politics, but not before sharing a fun story with everyone. He briefly talked about the first time he went to Disneyland when he was 11––”I went and did all the ‘Bare Necessity’ thing and, you know, Small World, the Matterhorn, I mean, it was the bomb”––before sharing the next time he went when he was a college student. The purpose of the trip that time was to see Kool & the Gang perform, Obama explained, but then this happened:
“After the concert, because we were teenagers––you could still kind of hang out Continue reading "Obama Shares a Story at Anaheim Rally About the Time He Got Booted from Disneyland"

Fox News’ Pete Hegseth: ‘Obama Has Trump Derangement Syndrome’

Fox & Friends Weekend host Pete Hegseth, who interviewed President Donald Trump two days ago, declared this morning that former President Barack Obama has “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” The Fox & Friends hosts this morning reacted to Obama’s big speech yesterday going after Trump and the Republican party, with Ed Henry saying, “Barack Obama decided he wants to make the midterms about ‘me.'” He also pointed out, in reaction to Obama’s invocation of Fox News, that even though the former president never called the network the enemy of the people, the targeting of reporter James Rosen. Jedediah Bila said this was a reminder of the “professorial” lecturing from Obama that people got tired of contrasted with how Trump “speaks with people.” Hegseth was more direct:
“Obama has Trump Derangement Syndrome. He totally does, and he is––his speech, when you listen to it, which I did, it’s Continue reading "Fox News’ Pete Hegseth: ‘Obama Has Trump Derangement Syndrome’"

Fox News’ Jesse Watters and Greg Gutfeld Tear Into Obama: He’s Guilty of Everything He Accused Trump of

The hosts of Fox News’ The Five today mostly panned former President Barack Obama‘s speech at the University of Illinois today, with Greg Gutfeld and Jesse Watters calling Obama hypocritical. Obama today denounced the politics of division, saying Trump is “a symptom, not the cause.” He railed against the Republican party, encouraged people to get out and vote, and expressed bewilderment at some of what’s been happening under his successor. Gutfeld remarked, “What a contrast in styles… President Obama’s like drinking a dozen piña coladas on the beach. It tastes sweet and it looks like fun, then you throw up all night and remember nothing.” He pointed to Democratic losses under Obama’s presidency and said, “The problem with all of his digs, you don’t have to look very hard to find out that he is guilty of every single one of them.” Gutfeld cited Obama’s criticisms Continue reading "Fox News’ Jesse Watters and Greg Gutfeld Tear Into Obama: He’s Guilty of Everything He Accused Trump of"

Obama’s Return to Politics Proves That the Critics Who Bashed His Silence Were Wrong

President Barack Obama reentered the political fray today with a remarkably passionate speech that featured pointed critique of both President Donald Trump and the current toxic political discourse. This came after months of harsh criticism that Obama received from progressives for refraining from explicitly condemning the Trump administration. But by keeping his political powder dry, his breakout speech on Friday was far more potent. Overall the speech was received exactly how one might expect in this “Rorschach Test” era we find ourselves. Those on the left swooned at what they saw as a nuanced, elegant and hopeful essay encouraging Americans to be their best selves and participating in American democracy. The right was reminded of why they never liked the guy, and were turned off by what they saw as arrogant lecturing that was professorial and soporific. Either way, the speech was remarkable not just for its contents, but its timing and Continue reading "Obama’s Return to Politics Proves That the Critics Who Bashed His Silence Were Wrong"

Trump Swipes at Obama Speech: ‘I Fell Asleep’

On Friday, President Donald Trump spoke at a campaign event in North Dakota. During his remarks, he took a swipe at former President Barack Obama who earlier today railed against Trump and the Republicans while stumping in Illinois. After remarking that he had been asked about Obama’s scathing rebuke, Trump suggested Obama’s words were good for one thing: sleeping. “I’m sorry, I watched it, but I fell asleep,” Trump said. “I found he’s very good. Very good for sleeping.” Trump then suggested Obama was trying to “take credit for this incredible thing happening to our country…We were heading south, you look at those bad numbers that there in the last couple of years, it was this way and going in the wrong direction.” Then, a bit later in the speech, Trump returned to the theme, noting his speech was much more exciting than listening to Obama.
