Former President Barack Obama gave a speech Tuesday in Milan, Italy, at a summit on food innovation. During a question-and-answer session after the speech, Obama tossed in a dig at people who didn’t show up to the polls in November.
“You get the politicians you deserve,” Obama said without mentioning President Trump. “And if you don’t vote and you don’t participate and you don’t pay attention, then you’ll get policies that don’t reflect your interests.”
I find him repugnant…he’s basically called Trump voters deplorables, and worse. Who doesn’t realize how nasty his statement is? In other words, he thinks Trump’s a terrible president and we got what we deserved by voting for him…and those who didn’t vote ended up getting him, too, right?
Secondly, I hope his ‘food innovation’ input at the summit on food isn’t more broccoli for American student lunches that’ll get thrown in the trash.
Thirdly, what he doesn’t realize is that Trump voters did get the person who reflects their interests and that matters, too. It’s not one-sided.
HERE IS THE RUB: This is the kind of statement broadcast all over America which needs a comeback from an articulate Republican (one’s BOUND to show up sooner or later). If it has to be me, I’d put it this way:
“Mr. Obama’s statement doesn’t take into account that all Americans deserve the politician they deserve and many felt they deserved someone tough and direct and who puts America first, like Donald Trump. Millions are still happy he isn’t Mrs. Clinton. It is now, finally, time to concentrate on the future and it would be more dignified and proper if an ex president didn’t find comfort in going to a foreign country to share election information they can’t be interested in or to be nasty toward a sitting president, like Mr. Clinton so badly did once while safe in London.
Mr. Obama let the country down in regards to safety and protection and we need now a president who has decided America’s survival is the most important thing for American citizens, not food innovations or global climate change. It is time for Mr. Trump to do his business without ex presidents banging the drums of constant negativism. Conservatives didn’t do that to Obama, though they, too, felt the country got “what it deserved,” believe me.”
