Obama’s phony self-righteous attack on President Trump began with a lie that had nothing to do with Trump and everything to do with himself.
Now, I want to start by addressing the elephant in the room. I know people are still wondering why I didn’t speak at the 2017 commencement. The student body president sent a very thoughtful invitation. Students made a spiffy video, and when I declined, I hear there was speculation that I was boycotting campus until Antonio’s pizza reopened…. The truth is, after eight years in the white house, I needed to spend some time one on one with Michelle if I wanted to stay married. And she says hello, by the way. I also wanted to spend some quality time with my daughters, who were suddenly young women on their way out the door…
Truth was, I was also intent on following a wise American tradition of ex-presidents gracefully exiting the political stage and making room for new voices and new ideas.
This almost goes without saying, but it’s a lie.
Obama had no problem doing speeches. As long as he got paid enough. When he was getting paid $400K for speeches, there was no issue with spending time with Michelle Obama and his daughters.
It’s a shoddy excuse for a shoddy hack who postures as a warm ordinary guy, but has never done anything authentic in his dishonest life.
