DNC Chair says ‘Obama is the real president, not Trump’
Donald Trump is not the real POTUS, according to DNC chair Tom Perez, who introduced Barack Obama as the “real President of the United States” during a fundraising event.
Addressing a room full of Californian Democrats, Perez, the current Democratic National Committee Chairman, said “Let’s give it up for the real president of the United States,” as he introduced former President Barack Obama, according to Politico.
After taking to the stage during the $2,700-per-plate event in Los Angeles designed to raise money for the DNC, Obama told attendees that he tried to advise Trump on policies, but he wouldn’t listen.
The comments undermining Trump’s role as Commander in Cheif have caused outrage among conservatives.
They also signaled that Obama may have a more active hand in politics outside of the public eye, possibly hinting towards his Deep State ties.
Western Journal reports: During the event, Obama suggested there may have been something he did not do right during his two terms in office.
“I’ll be honest with you, if I have a regret during my presidency, it is that people were so focused on me and the battles we were having, particularly after we lost the House, that folks stopped paying attention up and down the ballot,” he said.
He also said that during a pre-inauguration meeting with Trump, he told Trump, who had campaigned on ending Obamacare, to rename it.
“I said to the incoming president, ‘Just change the name and claim that you made these wonderful changes and I would be like, ‘You go.’ Because I didn’t have pride of authorship, I just wanted people to have health care,” he said, according to CNN.
Obama then said Trump failed in his efforts despite controlling all branches of government in Washington.
“They couldn’t do it because we had actually thought it through and it’s a hard thing to do,” he said.
Obama said Americans prefer his brand of unity.
“All these people that are out here kvetching and wringing their hands and stressed and anxious and constantly watching cable TV and howling at the moon, ‘What are we going to do?,’ their hair’s falling out, they can’t sleep,” Obama said.
“The majority of the American people prefer a story of hope. A majority of the American people prefer a country that comes together rather than being divided.
“The majority of the country doesn’t want to see a dog-eat-dog world where everybody is angry all the time,” he said, according to Politico.
He said that Republicans fit the mold of the party of anger.
“They’re mad even when they win. Have you noticed that?” he said, according to the Los Angeles Times.
