Self-awareness is not a strong suit of former President Barack Obama.
During what was a busy Thursday for the 44th president, he appeared at a campaign rally in Richmond, Virginia for the state’s Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam and made one of the most clueless statements of his career.
“If you have to win a campaign by dividing people, you’re not going to be able to govern them. You won’t be able to unite them later,” he told the crowd.
The most astounding part is that the former president was able to keep a straight face when he said it.
The incredible statement came during the same talking points tour in which Obama accused President Donald Trump of using “politics of division.”
DailyWire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro was quick to set him straight.

And he was not alone.
Oh yes, inclusive, above-the-fray Obama. The eyeroll emoji doesn’t quite suffice here. https://t.co/Pzgcg3Rocj

Yeah, especially if you continue that pattern of intentionally dividing them during your two terms. Yeah, you’re so right. https://t.co/ScCeUJztvz

Reminder that the HHS mandate was intended to divide along religious lines for political gain, not to address any actual problem. https://t.co/7QD3V9x4xg

Hypocrite! Part of his legacy is being the ‘Divider in Chief’; the rest of it is being the man who moved Carter to 2nd worse POTUS…

My least favorite move by Obama was calling out police, at a funeral for officers killed for simply doing their job

This guy is so tone deaf to his legacy of dividing this country for 8 years. He needs a personal beer summit. https://t.co/ULhjxNADoC

Dividing people is exactly how #Obama won elections.

It’s time to ask: just how much self awareness does this guy actually have?
Because he’s either this self unaware or he’s evil af.
