Obama: Republicans Are A “Minority” And Are Not “Reality” Based

(PatriotWise.com)- Former President Barack Obama is back on our screens, and every time we see him, he seems to drop a new and disgusting attack on Republicans to help sell copies of his new book. In an interview with Trevor Noah on “The Daily Show,” Obama attacked the Republican Party, describing it as a “minority party in this country.”

Let’s not forget that the “minority party” controls the Senate and, had there been no election interference and misconduct, also won the 2020 presidential election.

“In fact, the Republican Party is the minority party in this country,” Obama said. “The only reason that it doesn’t look like the majority party is because of structures like the U.S. Senate and the Electoral College that don’t render them the majority party.”

Wait…the Democrats support the Electoral College now?

“So they have certain built-in advantages around power given their population distribution and how our government works,” Obama continued. “But the truth of the matter is that 60 percent of the people are occupying what I would consider a more reality-based universe, and those are the constituents we’re speaking to, and that is a more diverse group.”

Here we have a former president, who will almost certainly have a role to play in Joe Biden’s administration should he form one in January, saying that he won’t talk with Trump supporters and Republicans because they are a minority.

So much for being the party for minorities, huh?

Obama then moved on to using racist attacks against Republicans in an attempt to belittle those he doesn’t agree with.

“I describe in the book the first time I go to the Republican House caucus to speak to them,” he said. “I think there was an Asian guy or gal and maybe a couple of Hispanics, and that was it. It was much more homogeneous, which means that, yes, they have to do less work. But it also means that they can talk to themselves, and as a consequence of the way our democracy, our republic is structured, they don’t have to appeal to as broad of a base.”

Which is…inaccurate.

The Republican Party attracts diverse support across the country, and in 2016 and 2020, turned the heavily Hispanic regions of Florida into safe Republican areas. Florida is no longer a battleground state, but a Republican state with massive Hispanic support.

Obama failed to recognize, also, that the Republicans appeal to a wider base then Democrats do because the Democrats tend to receive more votes in the popular vote. As a result, President Donald Trump ran a more diverse campaign than Hillary Clinton in 2016 when he won the Electoral College vote.

You could say the same thing about 2020, but we all know what happened there…

We probably shouldn’t expect Obama to disappear from our TV screens any time soon. He’s got books to sell.
