It’s been two weeks since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, and Barack Obama is still incredibly bitter about it.
While speaking in Peru on Sunday, Obama took shots at America by saying we have “fallen short of our ideals” of democracy, rule of law, a free press, an independent judiciary, free markets, and a social welfare system to help the disadvantaged.
Here’s a transcript of Obama’s speech, courtesy of Grabien:
In terms of reflecting on the United States presidency as I have been traveling, I think the main reflection I have and the main advice that I give to the incoming president is, the United States really is an indispensable nation in our world order.
I say that as somebody who has gone out of his way to express respect for every country and its people and to consistently acknowledge that many of the challenges we face are not challenges that America can solve on our own. But what I also know that the basic framework of the world order coming out of World War II and then on through the end of the Cold War, was shaped by a set of ideals and principles that have worked for the vast majority of people not just in America but around the world.
The notion of democracy. And rule of law. And a free press. And independent judiciary. And open markets. And a social welfare state to moderate some of the sharp edges of capitalism. And, you know, lifting up issues of human rights and investing in public health and development not just in our own borders but elsewhere in the world. And working with multilateral institutions, like the United Nations, making sure we’re upholding international norms and rules.
That’s what has made the modern world. And there have been times when we have not observed some of the norms as well as we should and have been accused of hypocrisy here in Latin America. There have been times when countries have felt disrespected and on occasion have had cause for that. And there were teams when we haven’t observed the values in our own country and have fallen short of our ideals, but that basic structure is the reason why the world is much wealthier, much more secure, and yes, less violent, healthier, and better educated, more tolerant than 50 years ago. That requires constant work. It doesn’t just happen on its own.”
Clearly, Obama is angry that America voted Trump into office, so he is trying to shame us as revenge. One day before this speech, Obama accused America of sexist banking rules, claiming that women were forced to have men co-sign loan applications until 1996.
“Because of these old stereotypes, they were having men co-sign, that kind of mentality, that kind of discrimination still exists,” Obama said.
It’s shameful that Obama is trying to shame our country simply because he didn’t get his way. Hey, Barack, if you don’t like this country, then LEAVE!
