OPINION – ICYMI: Why is it that the Obamas can’t get over the fact that they are no longer living in the White House?
It seems like every single week they are up to some kind of scheme to try and take cheap shots at President Trump. We previously reported that the Obamas have signed a contract to work with the online streaming service, Netflix, to create an anti-Trump show.
It was just recently that former First Lady Michelle Obama stated that she would not forgive President Trump for the “birther” comment.
Politico reports that in Mrs. Obama’s memoir, she states that she won’t ever forgive President Trump for his “promotion” of the “so-called birther movement.” The Washington Post and other outlets obtained excerpts from the book, in which she talks about threats she and her family received after “Trump’s amplification of the conspiracy theory.”
Politico writes, “Trump pushed the unfounded theory beginning around 2011 that President Barack Obama was born in Kenya, rather than in Hawaii, and was therefore ineligible to be president. The accusations gained steam among some on the right with the help of Trump’s Twitter feed, culminating in repeated calls for Obama to release his birth certificate and his college admissions records. Trump at one point claimed to have seen the president’s birth certificate himself, which he said would back up his claims, although he never released the proof he claimed to have.”
The Daily Wire reports that the former First Lady slammed Trump in her soon-to-be-published memoir, “Becoming.”The book reads, “The whole [birther] thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed. But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks. What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him.”
When questioned about Michelle Obama’s comments, President Trump had the perfect response.
President Trump stated when asked about the birther comments, “Michelle Obama got paid a lot of money to write a book and they always insist you come up with controversy.”
He then decided to fight controversy with controversy by proclaiming, “I’ll never forgive [Barack Obama] for what he did to our United States military by not funding it properly. It was depleted. Everything was old and tired and I came in and I had to fix it.”
