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.

PHOTOS: Democrat Lawmaker Simulates Assassination of Trump During Political Fundraiser

Imagine if the roles were reversed.

Why are Democrats still allowed to say they accept everyone? Even they know that that isn’t true. Unless you agree with the far-left 100% of the time, you’re not welcome to so much as give an opinion. Check out a Democrat state lawmaker simulating the assassination of President Trump during a recent fundraiser. Replace “Democrat” with Republican and “Trump” with Obama and imagine the outrage. A political fundraiser for @SenatorSandoval simulates an assassination attempt against a mock @realDonaldTrump decked out in Mexican garb. Looks like a man pointed a fake assault weapon at the fake President to pose for a picture. https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1162782536248057856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162782536248057856&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F08%2Fpolitical-fundraiser-for-illinois-democrat-state-lawmaker-simulates-assassination-attempt-of-president-trump%2F Reactions: Now @DemsforIllinois responds: “The tragedies in El Paso and Gilroy have demonstrated how hate-filled political rhetoric can fuel violence. These images are unacceptable and dangerous. The place to make our voices heard against Trump is at the ballot box.” https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1163144306577870848?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1163144306577870848&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F08%2F18%2Fno-big-deal-just-a-simulated-assassination-of-president-trump-at-a-fundraiser-for-an-illinois-dem%2F From @GovPritzker: “As our nation grapples with the epidemic of gun violence, purposely pointing a fake gun at anyone is insensitive and wrong. I condemn actions like the ones displayed in the pictures because they lack the civility our politics demands.” https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1162867673442766853?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162867673442766853&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F08%2F18%2Fno-big-deal-just-a-simulated-assassination-of-president-trump-at-a-fundraiser-for-an-illinois-dem%2F The guy later apologized… Response from @SenatorSandoval: “The incident that took place is unacceptable.

In other words, Dandoval is a good Democrat. From Fox2Now: Illinois lawmakers want to jack up the gasoline tax. Legislation has been introduced in Springfield that would double the tax and use the revenue for major road and bridge improvements across the state. Lawmakers are trying to find ways to pay for badly needed infrastructure improvements. State Senators Don DeWitte (R-33rd District) and Martin Sandoval (D-11th District) want to more than…

It takes a very special person to be a member of Antifa – or a Democrat, in general. You literally have to hate your country while at the same time remain ignorant as to have good you have it here in the states. Quite the combo.

Remember this…?? From Daily Caller: Former Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Antifa in a video announcing his presidential bid Thursday, characterizing the group as “courageous” and saying it’s wrong to draw a moral equivalence between white nationalist groups and those opposing them. The violent methods of Antifa are well documented. The nebulous group often uses these violent means against peaceful conservative speakers, benign free speech advocates, and even journalists. In a retelling of the events at a 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., Biden describes the white nationalists as having…
