It’s no surprise Barack Obama is attacking President Trump.
After all, Trump has overturned much of Obama’s legacy, including his transgender agenda, apologize-for-America foreign policy and advance of abortion rights.
This week, Obama charged Trump’s decisions not to endorse the global warming agenda and others is because of “hate, anger, racism – mommy issues.”
“The reason we don’t” invest in climate-change policies, the ex-president said, “is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism – mommy issues.”
He said the world “badly needs remaking.”
Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh said Tuesday the attack is an example of the left’s “real hate.”
He called it a “purposeful attack on what the United States of America was founded to be.”
“There’s nobody else, folks. Donald Trump is the only person in Washington willing to stand up against all this tide and try to stop it. So they’ve got every long knife out. Every gun, metaphorically, they have pointed at him, and now they’ve unleashed Obama. Trump has ‘mommy issues,'” he said.
Obama didn’t explain what he meant by “mommy issues.”
Limbaugh recalled once being accused by a liberal of engaging in “hate.”
“I recoiled, and I read her the Riot Act,” he explained.
“Little did I know that it’s just a specifically and pointedly used word to basically stifle any opposition. You just say that whoever is opposed to whatever the left wants is harboring ‘hate,’ and that’s what Obama is doing with Trump. I can tell you, Donald Trump doesn’t hate anybody, and I don’t hate anybody, and I don’t know anybody that hates anybody.
“The hate. … There is real hate, and the left has it. These mobs storming the hallways of the Senate during the Kavanaugh hearings? What the hell was that? These mobs trying to burn down Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore, Maryland? What is that? Antifa? Black Lives Matter? They are rooted in hate! The left has been consumed by hate! The left has been poisoned by it each and every day! They exist in pure, raw hatred!”
Conservatives, on the other hand, he said, “don’t hate anybody.”
“We want the best for literally everybody. We think this is the one place on earth where that can happen: The United States of America. I just recoil every time I hear it. Here comes Obama. It’s the laziest allegation you can make about somebody. ‘Trump is obsessed with hate.’ Why? Because he doesn’t believe in allowing people to pour over the border illegally? Because he’s trying to unravel some Obama policies which would literally erase and wipe out American society and culture as we know it?
“Wanting to preserve the United States of America is rooted in hate? It’s absurd, and it’s one of the ways that they get Republicans to shut up, one of the ways they get their critics to shut up. They don’t want anybody thinking they hate anybody, and I have the deepest of resentments for it. I think it’s intellectually lazy; it’s nowhere near correct. Then the media picks it up and they start running with it and they start throwing the word around, and it’s always aimed at people who disagree with whatever perversion or corruption the left is trying to implement.”
