Former President Barack Obama is apparently still having issues with the fact that he has been replaced by President Donald Trump. On Monday, Obama showed up in San Diego, trying to be president again, only to realize his big mistake once it was already too late.
According to The Daily Caller, Obama had some thinly-veiled criticism for President Trump during a discussion at the ATD International Conference & Exposition in San Diego on Monday, implying that American values “are not being upheld.”
This was strange, of course, coming from the man who spent eight years leading the assault on Christian values, emboldening terrorists, and welcoming dangerous illegal immigrants with open arms.

“I’ve been trying to be careful about not editorializing too much. When I get worried about our country, or the world, it is not around a particular issue. I worry when our values are not being upheld,” said Obama. “Our democracy, just like any organization, can’t work if, for example, we don’t insist on facts. Like, facts are really useful. We can’t make good decisions if we don’t at least agree on the facts.”
This didn’t make much sense, either, when you consider the fact that Obama repeatedly turned a blind eye to the facts when he held the office Trump now occupies. For example, Obama fought tirelessly for gun control, even as shootings unfolded across the country, perpetrated by gunmen who skirted the already existing gun laws. Just look at Obama’s hometown — Chicago — which has some of the strictest gun control measures and highest murder rates in the nation.
Furthermore, Obama ignored the facts surrounding black-on-black violence and officer-involved shootings when he emboldened groups like Black Lives Matter. As it turns out, police officers are far more likely to shoot a white suspect than a black one. But, that didn’t stop Obama from championing Black Lives Matter and other activist groups, creating more racial division in our country than we have seen since the Civil Rights Era.
Moreover, the vast majority of violent crimes committed against black people are perpetrated by other blacks. These things seem to have been lost on the former president, though.
“I mean this in all seriousness. It is important for us to make sure, regardless of our political proclivities, that the values underlining this great country don’t get eroded, because situationally, in this particular circumstance, it’s convenient for us to abandon our values to get what we want,” Obama said Monday, according to NTK Network.
He continued, “Our kids do watch what we do. And so if they see that, you know what, adults aren’t honest or they make excuses or they try to get out of stuff or they distort things. Over time we’ll pay a price for that.”
Good grief! Ever since his inauguration, President Donald Trump has been hard at work restoring the American values our great nation was founded upon. It should be noted that he’s had to work overtime at this, seeing how Obama did his best to erode those values.
American values like faith, family, and freedom are now being represented once again in the White House, courtesy of President Donald Trump. Barack Obama, on the other hand, is clearly out-of-touch with reality.
