The former President is once again in the limelight spreading dissent about the president. Obama has been against Trump since practically day one but it could be since Trump has shown him up. Trump has done something his predecessor didn’t think possible with North Korea. So it is only natural that Obama would attack Trump. This time he claims that the incoming caravan is not a real threat.
“They’re telling you the existential threat to America is a bunch of poor refugees a thousand miles away,” Obama said of Republicans, referencing the caravan of an estimated 4,000 Central American migrants headed toward the United States.
“They’re even taking our brave troops away from their families for a political stunt at the border,” Obama added. “The men and women of our military deserve better than that. So they’re just constant fear-mongering to distract from the record.”
“I’m hopeful that out of this political darkness we see a great awakening of citizenship all throughout this country.”
Obama was likely expecting this would kill with a liberal audience but as it turns out there were some people in the crowd that didn’t appreciate his rhetoric. They heckled the former president.
At first he was able to handle a couple hecklers but it soon became clear that they were getting under his skin when he made the following comment.
“Here’s the deal, If you support the other candidates, then you should go support the other candidates. Don’t be here. “One of the things I never understood was why if you are supporting the other guy, you come to my rally,” Obama said. “Go to their rallies. Go talk about what you are for. Don’t go hollering here.”
“Earlier this week, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis emphatically denied that the deployment is part of a political stunt ahead of next week’s midterm elections. “We don’t do stunts in this department. Thank you,” Mattis said.”
