Former First Lady Blames Trump for Putting Family in Danger. Here’s What Happened.

Oh brother.

Published

on

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has stated in her new book that her family was put in danger recently and the person to blame for the whole debacle is none other than President Donald Trump.

According to Obama, the president publicized a conspiracy theory that grew in popularity and, somehow, placed her family at risk, a move she says she cannot forgive him for.

Obama was referring to the “birther” conspiracy that Trump said he was investigating before he ran for president in 2016. The claim was that former President Obama was born in Kenya and was not a United States citizen.

She says in her soon-to-be-released book that Trump put her family under threat of attack with the comments. The Washington Post obtained an early copy of the book and published excerpts on Thursday.

“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,” she wrote in the book.

“What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington?” she wondered. “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,” she added. “And for this I’d never forgive him.”

Obama could have been referencing the unfortunate events that followed upon the “PizzaGate” conspiracy theory that had been popular on social media. One adherent to the conspiracy showed up armed at one of the targets of the conspiracy and was arrested for trespassing.

It seems odd that the former First Lady would be laying the blame for this conspiracy theory on President Trump, when it had been around since the beginning of Obama’s presidency and a little bit before.

What she seems to be saying is that Trump’s supporters are more psychologically unhinged than previous conservatives and Republicans have been, thus they are more of a threat to her and her family than those who held to this “birther” nonsense years ago.

It’s a sweeping generalization that’s simply not true. The vast majority of folks who support Trump are just Americans who are fed up with government intrusion preventing them from realizing their dreams and being able to provide for their families.

Leftists become enraged when they are generalized in such a way and lumped into one big group, yet it seems they have no issue doing the same to conservatives. The hypocrisy is maddening.

Manchin Shreds AOC, Says ‘She’s More Active On Twitter Than Anything Else’

Published

Despite the fact that the mainstream media has prematurely called the 2020 presidential election in favor of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, there’s a lot of hostilities and division ripping through the party right now. Particularly between Sen. Joe Manchin and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Manchin recently conducted an interview with the NY Times, which was posted up on Monday, in which he took aim at the diehard socialist congresswoman, claiming that she’s far more active on Twitter than she is in Congress. via Newsmax: His words came after a Nov. 11 tweet of his own where he had taken aim at calls to defund the police. He wrote: “Defund the police? Defund the police? Defund, my butt. I’m a proud West Virginia Democrat. We are the party of working men and women. We do not have some crazy socialist agenda, and we do not believe in defunding the police.” Ocasio-Cortez had fired back in a Nov. 12 tweet in which she posted a photo of herself seated behind Manchin at President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech. In the photo, she appeared to be giving Manchin an icy stare as he applauded. In the Tuesday interview with the Times, Manchin addressed the tweet, saying: “I guess she put the dagger stare on me. I don’t know the young lady — I really don’t. I never met her. I’m understanding she’s not that active with her bills or in committee. She’s more active on Twitter than anything else.” A spokeswoman for AOC, Lauren Hitt, came out to defend the congresswoman by stating that she has submitted more amendments than 90 percent of other freshmen folk in Congress. “The congresswoman has earned a reputation as a tough, prepared member in committee hearings,” Hitt stated. Manchin isn’t exactly wrong here. AOC spends a whole…

Democratic Mayor Of San Jose Busted Allegedly Violating Coronavirus Rules For Thanksgiving

Published

on

The Democratic mayor of the city of San Jose, California is catching tremendous heat over accusations that he ignored COVID-19 restrictions after he urged citizens in the city to “cancel the big gatherings this year and focus on keeping each other safe.” Well, we all know how much the radical left in this country loves hypocrisy, so not shocked by this a bit. This really demonstrates how liberal “elites” view themselves as above the law, while they look at their constituents as peons. via Daily Wire: NBC Bay Area reported Monday that Democrat San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo appeared to “have broken health protocols in celebrating Thanksgiving with family members outside of his own household.” Reporters from the local affiliate learned that he celebrated Thanksgiving with his elderly parents, which his office later confirmed, with “an unknown number of other guests.” His office did not disclose how many people attended the dinner, how many different households attended, and whether those who attended wore masks. “This is a private event – not public,” Liccardo’s chief of staff, Jim Reed stated. “We are going to redraw the line between what is personal and what is public because that line has become blurred.” On the day before Thanksgiving, Liccardo tweeted, “Cases are spiking, in part because we’re letting our guard (and masks) down with family & friends. Let’s cancel the big gatherings this year and focus on keeping each other safe.” https://twitter.com/sliccardo/status/1331576931125379082 “While few details about Liccardo’s Thanksgiving celebration have been released, it appears the gathering did elude guidelines frequently touted by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19,” NBC Bay Area said in their report. “A recent spike in coronavirus cases has prompted tighter restrictions across the Bay Area and the potential for California to exceed…
