Even after President Trump released a video calling for peace in D.C. and denouncing acts of violence, members of the Left continue to push the narrative that Trump somehow “incited” the rioting at the Capitol.
Barack Obama got in on the lie as well, saying Trump “incited” the violence.
This coming from a man who demonized police officers for 8 years, leading directly to the riots in Ferguson, MO and the murder of police in Dallas.
In a statement issued by a man who will be pulling Biden’s puppet strings, dear leader accused Trump of inciting violence and attacked those who refuse to swallow the lies about a legitimate election as embracing a “fantasy narrative that has spiraled further and further from reality.”
Via The Hill, “Obama calls mob scene a moment of ‘shame’ but not surprise”:
Former President Obama said history would recall riots by Trump supporters at the U.S. Capitol as “a moment of great dishonor” that was brought on by a sitting president who continued to “lie” about the outcome of the November presidential election.
“History will rightly remember today’s violence at the Capitol, incited by a sitting president who has continued to baselessly lie about the outcome of a lawful election, as a moment of great dishonor and shame for our nation,” said Obama.
“But we’d be kidding ourselves if we treated it as a total surprise,” he said.
Obama blasted the Republican Party and “its accompanying media ecosystem” for refusing to acknowledge “this was not a particularly close election and that President-Elect [Joe] Biden will be inaugurated on January 20.”
“Their fantasy narrative has spiraled further and further from reality, and it builds upon years of sown resentments,” said Obama.
Obama called on Republican lawmakers to “choose reality” and “choose America” or continue “stoking the raging fires.”
The former Democratic president expressed optimism at the number of Republicans who spoke out against Trump on Wednesday.
“Their voices add to the examples of Republican state and local election officials in states like Georgia who’ve refused to be intimidated and have discharged their duties honorably,” said Obama.
Obama’s cowardly attack isn’t the first time that he has demonized conservatives, he has referred to them as bitter clingers, an elitist perspective that meshes with Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” that spectacularly backfired.
