Former President Barack Obama received an award for ‘ethics in government” at the University of Illinois on Friday. If that wasn’t ironic enough, he used it as a platform to accuse President Donald Trump of a lot of things of which he himself was, in fact, guilty, accusing Trump of being divisive. He also falsely claimed that Trump would not denounce Nazis. But people let him have it and reminded him of his own history.
Now, of course, Trump did denounce neo-Nazis and white supremacists after Charlottesville. Multiple times. What was his big crime, according to the left? Daring to say that there was also violence from Antifa which of course there was.
But let not facts stop Obama when he’s in full lying spin mode. And he always smirks right before he tells a whopper, it’s a big tell.
“We don’t target certain groups for what they look like or how they pray. We are Americans,” Obama smirked.
Says the man who targeted nuns, suing the Little Sisters of the Poor because they refused to compromise their religious values.
From Daily Wire:
“We’re supposed to stand up to bullies,” Obama said. “Not follow them. We’re supposed to stand up to discrimination, and we’re sure as heck supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to Nazi sympathizers.”
“How hard can that be? Saying that Nazis are bad,” Obama continued.
Well, apparently it was too hard for Obama to actually deport a real Nazi, whose neighbors in New York City complained about him being there for years, Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell noted.
Grenell, who was instrumental in helping to resolve the issue and getting the 95-year-old Jakiw Palij, who was a guard in a Nazi concentration camp, deported, told Obama, “Fact check: Donald Trump kicked the Nazi out of NYC after 14 years and multiple Presidents allowed him to stay.” Multiple presidents including Obama.
And Grenell thought it was disgraceful that Obama would trivialize the Holocaust for a political attack.
“The Nazis killed 6 million Jews,” Grenell told The Daily Wire. “No one should ever joke about this horrific part of history.”
And others joined in to blast Obama.
Rob O’Neill, the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden, reminded Obama of how hard it was for him to mention another group.
And Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro jumped in as well:
Nicely done, folks!
