Have you been following Obama’s post-presidency career as a comedian? Well, I have. His most commonly used bit was the claim that he didn’t have any scandals during his presidency. Though his usual audience tends not to laugh but to cheer at this claim, it is easily debunked by anyone who paid attention during that time.
Former President Barack Obama defended his record at a Las Vegas election rally Monday, telling Nevada Democrats to “remember who started” the country’s economic recovery after the Great Recession and accusing President Trump of practicing “corrupt politics.”
As President Trump ponders the appropriate moment to declassify the documents that will expose the Obama administration’s corrupt plot to undermine his authority and to destroy his presidency, arguments about his right to do so have begun.
When presidential candidate Donald Trump called out President Barack Obama for being born in Kenya, he was labeled a conspiracy theorist and a “birther” by CNN and the mainstream media. But as the years go by, more and more evidence has emerged that seems to support Trump’s claim that President Obama was indeed born in Kenya. Speaking at Johannesburg in South Africa, Obama described himself as the “first sitting president to come from Kenya.”
President Donald Trump responded Saturday to a series of indictments, made against Russian hackers as part of Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation, by laying the blame squarely at the feet of former President Barack Obama.
Shaun King, Linda Sarsour and other liberals thought they were criticizing the Trump administration on Sunday when they tweeted a picture of immigrant minors sleeping in a caged enclosure, but it turned out they were inadvertently tweeting a photo that occurred during the Obama administration instead.
I think that Stephen Harper should retire completely from political life. No one likes an Obama, after all. It’s clear that most Canadians would rather their country completely collapse in every respect than vote for sane (if flawed) leadership.
Having said that, his presence is a nice change of pace from Butt’s mouthpiece to a man who can form sentences without the aid of cue cards:
Suddenly, Stephen Harper is turning up everywhere.
In the past couple of weeks, he’s made headlines for writing a book, telling an American audience in February he could still “easily” lead the Conservative Party and for adding his name to a full-page ad in the New York Times praising President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran.
On Monday he was in Montreal to mark Israel’s 70th birthday and Tuesday he tweeted he was pleased to be back in “la Belle Province”, adding it was great to see one-time colleagues including former Conservative MPs Denis Lebel and Christian Paradis and Conservative Sen. Leo Housakos.
Harper’s re-emergence bodes well for the Liberals’ strategy to brand the Opposition as “Harper Conservatives.”
For their part, the Conservatives seem to be saying: Bring it on.
Fulfilling a campaign promise, earlier this week Donald Trump officially withdrew the United States from the Obama-era nuclear deal with Iran, calling it “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.” For critics of the deal who recognized its flaws and did not turn a blind eye to evidence Iran was violating the terms of the agreement, this was welcome news a long time coming. Trump fulfilled his promise, and the days of kowtowing to terror-sponsoring regimes are behind us.
Just like that, Obama’s “major” foreign policy achievement became yet another example of just how foolish Obama’s “I have a pen and a phone” approach to governing was for someone who wanted to establish a long-term legacy.
