In a new interview on “The Daily Show” with Trevor Noah, former President Barack Obama belittled the Republican Party, calling it “the minority party in this country.”
Obama Attacks Republican Party
“In fact, the Republican Party is the minority party in this country,” Obama said. “The only reason they it doesn’t look like the majority party is because of structures like the U.S. Senate and the Electoral College that don’t render them the majority party.”
“So they have certain built-in advantages around power given their population distribution and how our government works,” he added. “But the truth of the matter is that 60 percent of the people are occupying what I would consider a more reality-based universe, and those are the constituents we’re speaking to, and that is a more diverse group.”
Obama Doubles Down
Not stopping there, Obama proceeded to use racism to attack the Republican Party as well, implying that it is not diverse enough.
“I describe in the book the first time I go to the Republican House caucus to speak to them,” Obama said. “I think there was an Asian guy or gal and maybe a couple of Hispanics, and that was it.”
“It is much more homogeneous, which means that, yes, they have to do less work,” he continued. “But it also means that they can talk to themselves, and as a consequence of the way our democracy, our republic is structured, they don’t have to appeal to as broad of a base.”
“That’s not fair,” Obama added. “But you know I at least would prefer not having the progressives model ourselves on the current Republican Party. That doesn’t feel like a good strategy to me to get the outcomes that we want.”

Obama Goes After Fox And Rush Limbaugh
While promoting his new memoir “Promised Land,” Obama has seemingly been working overtime to shame both Donald Trump and the Republican Party as a whole every chance he gets.
Earlier this month, Obama bizarrely blamed Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, who is currently battling cancer, with ruining his apparent connection with conservatives.
“I ended up getting enormous support in these pretty conservative, rural, largely white communities when I was a senator, and that success was repeated when I ran for president in the first race in Iowa,” Obama claimed.
“By my second year in office, I’m not sure if I could make that same connection, because now those same people are filtering me through Fox News and Rush Limbaugh and an entire right-wing or conservative media infrastructure that was characterizing me in a way that suggested I looked down on those folks or had nothing in common with them,” Obama continued.
