Black History: Special Delivery!!
Since the inception of his presidency, President Obama has been blamed for nearly everything that is wrong with the country. At a recent press conference, President Obama spoke candidly on this issue. He also specifically addressed rhetoric being spread that it is he, (President Obama), who is responsible for Republicans embracing/endorsing the bigotry displayed by Donald Trump.
While the President has certainly made some mistakes……..He has also made accomplishments that many fail to acknowledge. It’s pretty astonishing that now the President is even being blamed for Donald Trump’s rising popularity within the Republican Party. President Obama shared the following comments at the press conference:
“I have been blamed by Republicans for a lot of things, but being blamed for their primaries and who they’re selecting for their party is novel” – President Obama
Whether you are a supporter of President Obama or not, blaming him for the antics of Donald Trump is really absurd. Seems like a good time for politicians to evaluate what type of mindset would allow this type of bigotry to thrive?
President Obama concluded his press conference remarks with,
“And so what you’re seeing within the Republican party is to some degree all those efforts over a course of time, creating an environment where somebody like a Donald Trump can thrive.” – President Obama
