As the right wing continues to grapple with President Donald Trump’s recent election loss, it’s no surprise pundits are now turning to criticise former President Barack Obama.
In back-to-back appearances on Fox News last week – on Sean Hannity’s show on Thursday night, then on Fox & Friends Friday morning – conservative commentator Candace Owens, known for her criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement, disparaged Obama’s upcoming memoir, A Promised Land.
(Owens is also spreading the false claim that Joe Biden is not the president-elect.)
They Left spent 4 years claiming Trump was not their President, except, he LITERALLY is.
Now they are saying that… https://t.co/pCj153uc4y
Owens also claimed that Obama wouldn’t have been elected if racism was still present in the US.
“If people were feeling spooked, if people were feeling racist, or feeling like white supremacists, he would never have stepped foot into the White House,” she said.
“This is a majority white country, okay? Barack Obama won because white Americans voted for him, because white Americans believed in him,” she said, “and by the end of his term, those same Americans no longer believed in him, and that includes me.”
