Barack Obama broke precedent again and went after President Trump over the recent shootings.
Nevermind that one of the shooters was a rabid leftist, everything bad that happens is Trump’s fault. That is the new rule in these weird times.
Barack wrote, “We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments; leaders who demonize those who don’t look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people.
Such language isn’t new- it’s been at the root of most human tragedy throughout history, here in America and around the world.
It is at the root of slavery and Jim Crow, the Holocaust, the genocide in Rwanda and ethnic cleansing in the Balkans. It has no place in our politics and our public life.
And it’s time for the overwhelming majority of Americans of goodwill, of every race and faith and political party, to say as much – clearly and unequivocally.”
Anyone who knows Trump knew that would not sit well and today Trump hit back.
“Did George Bush ever condemn President Obama after Sandy Hook,” Trump tweeted.
“President Obama had 32 mass shootings during his reign. Not many people said Obama is out of Control. Mass shootings were happening before the President even thought about running for Pres.”
“‘It’s political season and the election is around the corner. They want to continue to push that racist narrative.’ @ainsleyearhardt @foxandfriends And I am the least racist person. Black, Hispanic and Asian Unemployment is the lowest (BEST) in the history of the United States!”
