Obama Criticized the President Over Shootings, Trump Just Took Him Apart

President Trump fired back at Barack Obama after the former president issued a forceful statement condemning leaders who feed “a climate of fear and hatred.”

Obama’s statement on Monday, which does not refer to Trump by name, called for Americans to reject those who stoke hatred, fear, and racism.

He noted recent tragic shootings in El Paso and Dayton come from “troubled individuals who embrace racist ideologies and see themselves obligated to act violently to preserve white supremacy.”

In the same breath he added, “We should strongly 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 subhuman, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people.”

Lifezette reports that “[Obama’s] words can absolutely be seen as a rebuke of Trump.”

Trump Isn’t Going to Just Take It

President Trump fired back at Obama, noting that he is “the least racist person” and quoting Fox News host Brian Kilmeade in asking if George W. Bush ever openly criticized the Democrat’s administration for the Sandy Hook attack.

“President Obama had 32 mass shootings during his reign,” Kilmeade said. “Not many people said Obama is out of Control. Mass shootings were happening before the President even thought about running…”

Kilmeade’s colleague, Ainsley Earhart added, “It’s political season and the election is around the corner. They want to continue to push that racist narrative.”

“I am the least racist person,” Trump added to the retweeted commentary. “Black, Hispanic and Asian Unemployment is the lowest (BEST) in the history of the United States!”

More Defense of Trump

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox to remind Democrats that when one of their own tried assassinating Republican lawmakers nobody pointed the finger back at them.

“I wanted people to know that when a Bernie Sanders supporter, somebody admitted that he watched a different cable network for his political news, shot up Steve Scalise who was within inches of his life and others on that baseball field two years ago we didn’t run out and say oh, he was hunting down Republicans and Bernie Sanders supporter,” Conway insisted. “We were worried about Steve Scalise’s life being saved.”

That’s the difference between Democrats and Republicans – the former group doesn’t mind dancing on the graves of others to make a political point.

Obama Didn’t Condemn Racism When a Racist Attack Took Place During His Own Presidency

While the media celebrates Obama’s words today as that of a ‘true leader,’ it’s important to remember that he refused to condemn racism after the Dallas police massacre in July of 2016.

Prior to gunning down five police officers and injuring nine others, Micah Xavier Johnson admitted he “wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”

Oddly enough, Obama was unable to condemn black nationalists at the time. He didn’t call the attack racist. No, he blamed the police themselves for being bigoted.

“We have all seen this bigotry in our lives at some point,” Obama told the mourners. “None of us is entirely innocent. No institution is entirely immune. And that includes our police departments. We know this.”

What we know is that mass shootings occurred during Trump’s presidency, they occurred during Obama’s presidency, and they occurred during Bush’s and Clinton’s administration. They weren’t then, and aren’t now, caused by the President’s criticisms of his political opponents. They are caused by sick individuals with obvious mental health issues.

  • Obama needs to keep his big mouth shut and go back to Kenya where he was born. He caused more racism and division of this country , just so glad he is out of office , now just keep him out of the media.

  • Obama was the bigoted racist for 8 years, his anti police and anti white attitude fueled groups like Antifa , BLM and individuals to murder police officers and to riot against conservatives and police officers. Liberals are still calling for violence against the President, Conservatives and any one who disagrees with them. These same corrupt, bigoted, racist are doing all of this while not doing one thing to make life better or safer for the American people, including those they are encouraging to violence.

  • I appreciate your apology - I would never have voted for Obama because the one thing I realized that Obama never explained was just "what kind of change was he going to make to America?" There was something about him that I just did NOT trust!!! We now all know what it was!!!
