Former President Barack Obama slammed tens of millions of Americans during his speech on Friday, claiming that they were paranoid, divisive, and resentful.
“Neither party has been exclusively responsible for us going backwards instead of forwards,” Obama said. “But I have to say this because sometimes we hear a plague on both your houses.”
“But over the past few decades, the politics of division and resentment and paranoia has unfortunately found a home in the Republican party,” Obama continued. “This Congress has championed the unwinding of campaign finance laws to give billionaires outside influence over our politics.”
Obama continued by claiming that the Trump administration has “systematically attacked voting rights to make it harder for young people and minorities and the poor to vote,” without offering any evidence to validate his claim.
