After former Republican President George W. Bush exited the White House, he returned home to his ranch in Crawford, Texas and quietly planned his presidential library while organizing events to honor and support military veterans. Bush may not have agreed with his successor Barack Obama, but he stepped aside and let him do his job.
Obama, on the other hand, has not just let his successor Donald Trump just do his job. Obama has remained in Washington, D.C. near the White House and undertaken a “shadow presidency”, meeting with world leaders on behalf of America’s liberals.
The Democrat reached a brand-new post-presidential low, however, when he recently gave a speech to the Economic Club of Chicago where he compared President Trump to Adolf Hitler and accused him of putting America on a path to genocide. Conspicuously, only one member of the press actually reported on his deeply inflammatory and irresponsible comments.
According to Crain’s Chicago Business reporter Gregory Hinz, Obama first mocked Americans who voted for Trump as “simple”, saying, “Sadly, there’s something in us that looks for simple answers when we’re agitated.”
He then launched into his disgusting smear about Trump, stating that America’s danger is “grow(ing) complacent. We have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly.” Obama added, “That’s what happened in Germany in the 1930s which, despite the democracy of the Weimar Republic and centuries of high-level cultural and scientific achievements, Adolf Hitler rose to dominate. Sixty million people died. . . .So, you’ve got to pay attention. And vote.” Do you think it’s sick that Obama just openly compared Trump to Hitler?
Take that, @realDonaldTrump: @BarackObama makes clear his view that a complacent America could be headed the way of Nazi Germany. Read his remarkable comments at #EconomicClub of Chicago. @BarackObama2Day https://t.co/XD4gdhjDRr
