As I wrote the title I thought there are a lot of people I would say that about, but in this case it’s Barack Obama. I wish him a long and frustrated retirement as he watches Donald Trump reverse everything he set in place. Which brings to mind two stories from today.
First there’s this: Obama goes after Trump in Rutgers commencement address and slams building ‘walls,’ isolationism, and ‘conspiracy theories’ – and even defends the ‘rigged’ political system. It is only because he is a narcissistic loon that he thinks anyone still pays attention to what he says, in the sense that what he says actually changes anyone’s mind about anything. He is regularly the stupidest man in any room he enters, and is almost certainly always the least informed. He can talk through a teleprompter, but off the cuff he is famously incapable of stringing two coherent words together. It is unimaginable how smart this pathological dishonest dumbbell thinks he is to be quoted as saying this:
‘In politics and in life, ignorance is not a virtue,’ Obama said. ‘It’s not cool to not know what you’re talking about. That’s not keeping it real or telling it like it is. That’s not challenging political correctness. That’s just not knowing what you’re talking about.’
‘When our leaders express a disdain for facts. When they’re not held accountable for repeating falsehoods and just making stuff up, and actual experts are dismissed as elitists, then we’ve got a problem,’ Obama said.
At least he’s right that we have got a problem. It’s just that he doesn’t know what that problem is.
So to the second story: Donald Trump insists Britain would NOT be at the back of the queue for a trade deal if he wins the White House. Here we have a head to head comparison between Obama and Trump. Obama blunders his way across the world, and in this case offending large sections of the British public, buying in where he has no business to be. Trump just says that this is a decision for the UK to make and whatever they decide the US will do what it can to accommodate.
Donald Trump today insisted Brexit would not put Britain at the ‘back of the queue’ to secure a US trade deal should he become president.
The presumptive Republican nominee said it would make no difference to him whether Britain decides to stay with the European Union or chooses to leave next month.
The remarks struck a markedly different tone to incumbent president Barack Obama who issued a stark warning about the prospects for a trade deal for Britain on a visit last month.
Mr Obama triggered outrage from Out campaigners who warned foreign leaders should not be intervening on Britain’s referendum.
He will be gone in less than a year, but the damage he has left behind will go forward into the deepest future.
