#MyPresident trends hard over Obama’s ‘return to grandeur,’ Trump lays him out with one tweet

In response to the El Paso mass shooting by a white supremacist whose political views closely mirror those of the Democrat Party, former Democrat President Barack Hussein Obama issued a politically-charged statement Monday chockablock with lies and what appeared to be political posturing.

And in response to this statement, liberal Democrats across America celebrated the return of their beloved messiah, a man whom the left still falsely claims had run a flawless administration, by making the hashtag #MyPresident trend.


There’s a lot more where that came from.

Obama began his statement with another bold-faced lie that’ll likely be ignored by the media, writing, “First, no other nation on Earth comes close to experiencing the frequency of mass shootings that we see in the United States. No other developed nation tolerates the levels of gun violence that we do.”

That’s a lie — one of many Obama has repeated ad nauseam for years. It’s based on a debunked study, according to renowned award-winning journalist John Stossel:

The former president continued his statement by rightly calling out the El Paso shooter’s white supremacist beliefs. However, he made no mention of the shooter’s left-wing beliefs.

And then came the blatant politicization: In a lengthy third paragraph, Obama bemoaned the expression of rhetoric by “our leaders” that “feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments.”

“[A]ll of us have to send a clarion call and behave with the values of tolerance and diversity that should be the hallmark of our democracy,” he wrote. “We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments; leaders who demonize those who don’t look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people.”

While he didn’t name names, it seemed clear to many that he’d meant Trump, who’s been criticized for calling out illegal immigration, referring to MS-13 murderers as “animals” and holding the Democrat Party responsible for its anti-Semititism, anti-Americanism and failed leadership.

“It’s obvious that Obama was echoing other Democrats who rushed to blame Trump, while not calling him out by name,” conservative commentator Matt Margolis opined in a post published after Obama’a statement was released.

“Worse yet, while Obama felt it necessary to pontificate about the El Paso shooter’s motives and blame Trump (despite the fact he was radicalized before Trump even ran for president) he did not give equal treatment to the Dayton shooter, who, we now know, was a socialist who believed in gun control and supported Elizabeth Warren.”

Nor, as mentioned earlier, did Obama note the El Paso shooter’s left-wing beliefs. Why not? Some suspect it’s because the former president’s statement wasn’t written with the sincerity of someone who cares but rather with the cunning manipulation of a political operative who just wanted to score some pro-gun-control and anti-Trump political points.

This belief was based on him pushing for gun control, ignoring the El Paso shooter’s left-wing beliefs, ignoring the Dayton shooter altogether and speaking about the allegedly anti-immigrant rhetoric of America’s “leaders.” There is no leader — including Trump — who’s spoken negatively of immigrants. But there are many leaders and Americans alike — including three-fourths of the public — who’ve been open about their opposition to illegal immigration, which is a crime.

Obama’s lies and political posturing, plus the liberal Democrats’ delusional use of the #MyPresident hashtag, was enough to spur a number of conservatives into action. President Trump showed restraint as he weighed in on Tuesday morning:

They responded en masse to the statement by debunking the former president’s lies, reminding the American people that Trump is their president, calling out Obama for blatantly trying to politicize another tragedy and rightly noting that Trump has done far more to help minority communities and reduce racial tensions than Obama ever did.
