Throughout his presidency, Barack Hussein Obama has shown that he is incredibly arrogant. However, even we didn’t think he was THIS delusional about his own abilities.
Breitbart reported that Obama claimed this week that he could have won a third term as president had he been allowed to run against Donald Trump.
“I am confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it,” Obama told his former campaign chief David Axelrod in a CNN podcast interview.
Obama went on to blame Republican leader Sen. Mitch McConnell for doing everything in his power to make his presidency difficult.
“[J]ust from a pure tactical perspective, was pretty smart and well executed, the degree of discipline that he was able to impose on his caucus was impressive,” Obama said of McConnell. He went on to slam the mainstream media for holding Hillary Clinton to a double standard, insisting that she “performed wonderfully” even though she lost.
However, Obama did admit that Clinton should have focused more on her own economic message than on Trump himself.
“Understandably, I think she looked and said well, given my opponent and the things he’s saying and what he’s doing, we should focus on that,” he said.
The president also attacked “filters” like Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and the National Rifle Association for disrupting his message of hope and change.
“[I]f we’re not actually out there like we are during campaigns, then folks in a lot of these communities, what they’re hearing is Obama wants to take away my guns,” he said. “Obamacare’s about transgender bathrooms and not my job, Obama is disrespecting my culture and is primarily concerned with coastal elites and minorities.”
At the end of the interview, Obama came to the conclusion that he had failed to properly understand the significance of the conservative media.
“Part of what I’ve struggled with during my presidency and part of what I think I’ll be thinking a lot about after my presidency is how do we work around all these filters?” he asked. “And it becomes more complicated now that you’ve got social media, where people are getting news that reinforces their biases and — and separates people out instead of bringing them together.”
