Obama Has Lost It – He Just Bizarrely Thanked Himself For…

By

In one of the most bizarre challenges to Trump’s presidency yet, Barack Obama last week got up on stage and literally patted himself on the back.

Even if Obama had been responsible for the recent economic growth (he’s not), his performance would still have been odd in the extreme.

I mean, if Trump got up on stage and declared, “Thanks, Trump,” the mainstream media was SKEWER him for it.

But, not Obama. His mainstream media buddies were likely right there cheering along with all the other Obamaphiles.

The incident occurred when Obama was addressing a climate summit in Chicago, where he said in regards to his economic policies:

“We met resistance at every step of the way. And there were skeptics who said these actions would kill jobs and depress growth, but instead as we took these actions and we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently. We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far — a streak that still continues, by the way.”

That growth he’s talking about has largely taken place over the past 10-12 months, after Trump won the election, and, according to top economists, as a direct result of that victory.

Trump’s policies, and even his mere presence (being that he’s a free market businessman, and not a politician) have had an enormous and almost immediate impact on the economy.

Nevertheless, Obama was determined to take all the credit, and ended his ridiculous speech by winking to the crowd and saying, “Thanks, Obama.”
