Barack Hussein Obama likes to believe that he is one of the most popular presidents in American history. However, a newly surfaced video shows that this can’t be further from the truth.
According to Conservative Brief, Obama made an appearance on the jumbo screen at a recent WWE wrestling event. The president was expecting a warm reception. But he was instead booed by the crowd of patriots who are sick of his anti-American tendencies.
“An explanation of climate change from a Nobel Prize-winning physicist looks exactly the same on your Facebook page as the denial of climate change by somebody on the Koch brothers’ payroll,” Obama said.
“And the capacity to disseminate misinformation, wild conspiracy theories, to paint the opposition in wildly negative light without any rebuttal — that has accelerated in ways that much more sharply polarize the electorate and make it very difficult to have a common conversation.”
Many Democrats have pointed to a proliferation of fake news as a factor in Clinton’s loss. Some have suggested Facebook’s refusal to police such posts allowed Trump supporters to form sharply and unfairly negative opinions of the Democratic nominee.
Obama said he brought staff members of all levels into the Oval Office on the morning of Nov. 9 to reassure them, some of whom had become emotional, that Trump’s victory was “not the apocalypse.”
In anticipating a Clinton win, aides had described a “sense of balloons and confetti waiting to be released,” the New Yorker’s David Remnick wrote.
Obama campaigned vigorously for his potential Democratic successor and was reportedly confident that, with his help, she would cruise to an easy victory over Trump.
“I’m like Mick Jagger,” he told Remnick on his way out of a North Carolina rally for Clinton. “I’m old, I’m gray, but people still turn out.”
