Will the hate and lies ever end?
You’d think that Barack Obama would use his farewell speech to thank the liberals who have stood behind him through his tumultuous eight years as president, even though he is leaving our country in shambles. He at least owes them that for their misguided loyalty. On the other hand, we conservatives wonder how we’re survived the past eight years.
But no – he uses his final appearance on stage as president to get a few more digs in on Donald Trump. Although he never mentioned our president-elect by name, it was quite obvious where he was directing his zingers.
From Right Wing News via Daily Mail:
President Barack Obama rode into the White House on a message of ‘hope and change,’ but he told his supporters tonight, as he delivered his final address in office, ‘you were the change’ and encouraged them to continue standing up for their values after his departure.
‘Yes We Can. Yes We Did. Yes We Can,’ Obama said, a reference to his 2008 slogan and a nod to the future progress he expects backers of his brand of politics to make.
He never mentioned his successor by name on Tuesday evening but made multiple references to President-elect Donald Trump, declaring to loud clapping and cheers ‘that science and reason matter’ and he rejects ‘discrimination against Muslim Americans.’
The soon-to-be former president also decried the ‘selective sorting of facts’ he said members of the Republican party have embraced.
In the 50-minute speech Obama further took on the touchy topic of race, saying that talk of a ‘post-racial America’ after he was elected ‘was never realistic.’
Obama went on to lie about Trump’s transition to the White House saying that he is doing everything in his power to make it as smooth as possible, but we all know that he has done everything he could to sabotage Trump’s transition. Hopefully, this is the last time we have to see him going on and on about how wonderful he is, but his decision to stay in D.C. eludes to the fact that he’s not going away anytime soon. We doubt the lies and hate will stop anytime soon either.
