Obama is Furious: NYT Reports Obama Raged About Trump at Private Party
We knew we would hear from him, and we will hear far more in the months to come, we will hear a lot from Barack Obama. It is not just that President Obama wants his good friend and VP Joe Biden to be elected, it is that he knows that America needs to rally around a real leader to just get to that election. Trump is already talking about trying to move the election (he can’t) and already talking about rigging an election (he can), Americans will look to the real president for leadership, what to do.
Obama appears more than motivated. According to the New York Times:
“At fund-raising events where he has pulled in more than $24 million for Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s campaign in the past two months, former President Barack Obama has privately unleashed on President Trump to party donors, bringing up past accusations of Mr. Trump’s ‘assaulting women’ and warning of his efforts to push ‘nativist, racist, sexist’ fears and resentments,”
While we know that President Obama most fears for the future of the country, we should note his anger and hatred with Trump for his treatment of women. Obama has three women in his immediate family, still married to the love of his life and two wonderful daughters, and he must loathe Trump’s treatment of women.
“It’s just glued to Fox News and Breitbart and Limbaugh and just this conservative echo chamber — and so, they’re going to turn out to vote. What he has unleashed and what he continues to try to tap into is the fears and anger and resentment of people who, in some cases, really are having a tough time and have seen their prospects, or communities where they left, declining. And Trump tries to tap into that and redirect in nativist, racist, sexist ways.”
Yes, they are going to turn out to vote. But so are we, and I suspect Barack Obama is going to see to it that every single person within his reach will vote, too. Because he knows the stakes.
“The endpoint of that we saw in Europe 60 years ago, 70 years ago — what happens when those things get unleashed,” Mr. Obama said, according to the notes. “You don’t nip that in the bud, bad things can happen. Among the most quote unquote civilized societies.”
Yes, Barack Obama is back, and he knows the stakes. It sounds like he has a plan and will soon be unleashing it. Some of those “Zoom” discussions won’t be as private and we suspect that the challenges to Trump will get sharper and pierce deeper.
