Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, October 22, 2020

Former President Barack Obama delivered an often-incredulous and blistering account of his successor's first four years in office on Wednesday in Philadelphia, making his most direct attacks on President Donald Trump to date both on substance and on a personal level.

"After Obama suggested Trump uses the presidency to boost his own profile, he added, "Even then, his TV ratings are down. So you know that upsets him."

And when he noted that Trump inherited a booming economy from him, Obama added, but "just like everything else he inherited, he messed it up."

"Listen, can you imagine if I had had a secret Chinese bank account when I was running for reelection?" Obama asked. "You think Fox News might have been a little concerned about that? They would have called me Beijing Barry."

.

Obama said Biden would "never call the men and women of our military suckers and losers," citing a bombshell report on Trump from The Atlantic. He said Trump has "emboldened" racists.

Obama also incredulously recounted instances of Trump retweeting conspiracy theories, indirectly mentioning the false QAnon claim that says there is a "secret cabal running the world."

"It just won't be so exhausting," Obama said of a Biden administration, adding voters are "not going to have to think about the crazy things ... and that is worth a lot."

"not going to have to think about the crazy things ... and that is worth a lot."

This alone will be enough.

I watched the whole thing last night... honestly it was the best 30 minute therapy session I ever had.

It was like a Morgan Freeman narration, it was like hearing all of my thoughts, but in Obama's voice.

Thank you Barry!

From the cited article...

...And when [fmr Pres Obama] noted that Trump inherited a booming economy from him, Obama added, but "just like everything else he inherited, he messed it up."...

Yikes. No punches were pulled.

Ironically, white supremacists elected a white president who consistently proves himself inferior to a black one.

That statement would mean more if it weren't coming from a guy who let the bankers get away with crashing the economy after they sent him a ton of bribe money - i mean "campaign donations".

The saying goes, "don't shoot until you see the whites of their eyes". With two weeks left until Election Day, Obama just saw the whites of Trump's eyes.

Moder8,

But what if they're wearing sunglasses?

I'll send anyone who gets that reference $100 American.

And I'll send anyone who gets (^) that reference a nice greeting card.

Elwood: There are 106 miles to Chicago. We have a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.
