With Barack Obama’s return to the political arena, where he openly criticized his successor, President Donald Trump, and took credit for Trump’s booming economy, Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro countered to inform the former president of what may be his real legacy — getting Donald Trump elected.
“It has never happened in the history of this country, an ex-president viciously attacking his successor, trashing our commander-in-chief, his party and all those Americans who put him in the Oval Office,” Pirro said Saturday in the “Opening Statement” segment of her show.
The man who single-handedly set back race relations in this country half a century criticized Trump for capitalizing on racial and economic resentments.
“How hard can that be? Saying that Nazis are bad,” Obama asked last week, in that condescending, lecturing manner familiar to all.
Pirro described his performance as “a full-throttle savage attack on the president — Barack’s message: obstruct and resist.”

“Your narrative of Republicans as Nazi sympathizers is a dog whistle to your base,” she proclaimed. “There is no truth to it but you insist on repeating it to stoke up the hatred by your base.”
The Fox News host went on to recap the low-lights of the Obama presidency, before delivering a personal reminder to the former president.
“Your version of America is not the America we want,” Pirro insisted. “To us, social justice is about justice for American citizens and not illegal criminals. To us social justice is about taking care of veterans who come back to our shores with fewer limbs than when they left. To us, social justice is not about burning our flag, it’s about raising it and lifting it.”
She then shared the one thing Obama may be remembered most for.
“I am sorry to say this, but there is one thing your gonna have to live with, the only reason that we have an outsider businessman president is because of you, your lies, your policies, and your divisiveness,” Pirro said. “You, Barack, you elected Donald Trump. And there is nothing you can do about the fact that he’s sitting in the Oval Office now.”
“So I guess I should say, thank you, Barack.”
