Obama keeps proving he is simply incapable of showing the same class George W. Bush had from 2008 to 2016. Obama loves the limelight too much and craves the attention he gets whenever he speaks. During a recent event, he actually brought up the specter of Nazi Germany. It was obviously a dig at Trump, using he left’s favorite comparison.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Obama Invokes Nazi Germany, Warns Against Voters Becoming ‘Complacent’
Crain’s Chicago Business reporter Greg Hinz attended the event at the Economic Club of Chicago where Obama was quizzed by Ariel Investments President Mellody Hobson about his beliefs on a variety of subjects.
Obama said the United States had survived tough times before and could do so again, mentioning the age of McCarthyism and the attempted impeachment of former President Richard Nixon as examples.
The two-term Democrat expressed the importance of a free press and urged the country not to “grow complacent,” saying “we have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly.”
Hinz writes Obama then brought up the specter of Adolf Hitler, who came to power in Democratic Germany amid the financial crisis of the 1930’s.
“Sixty million people died…” he reports Obama said. “So, you’ve got to pay attention. And vote.”
If you doubt Obama was referring to Trump, take a look at this tweet from the reporter mentioned in this story:
Take that, @realDonaldTrump: @BarackObama makes clear his view that a complacent America could be headed the way of Nazi Germany. Read his remarkable comments at #EconomicClub of Chicago. @BarackObama2Day https://tinyurl.com/y86regwx
