Barack Obama Just Praised The One Group of Republicans That No One Expected

Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial is about to consume Washington.

The unthinkable is now happening.

And Barack Obama just praised the one group of Republicans that no one expected.

As Black Eye Politics reports:

After even former President Barack Obama released a statement claiming that President Trump incited the riot.

“History will rightly remember today’s violence at the Capitol, incited by a sitting president who has continued to baselessly lie about the outcome of a lawful election, as a moment of great dishonor and shame for our nation,” Obama said in a statement Wednesday evening. “But we’d be kidding ourselves if we treated it as a total surprise,” Obama’s statement began.

Obama then attacked Republicans for raising questions about the election and highlighting the potential for voter fraud that universal mail-in ballots present.

“For two months now, a political party and its accompanying media ecosystem has too often been unwilling to tell their followers the truth — that this was not a particularly close election and that President-Elect Biden will be inaugurated on January 20. Their fantasy narrative has spiraled further and further from reality, and it builds upon years of sown resentments. Now we’re seeing the consequences, whipped up into a violent crescendo,” Obama added.

Obama then baselessly asserted that Republican senators and congressmen exercising their constitutional prerogative to object to the results of the Electoral College vote in certain states and debate them for two hours were ‘desecrating’ the U.S. Capitol.

“Right now, Republican leaders have a choice made clear in the desecrated chambers of democracy. They can continue down this road and keep stoking the raging fires. Or they can choose reality and take the first steps toward extinguishing the flames. They can choose America,” Obama added.

But Obama praised Republicans like Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger who showboated for the cameras with their Trump hatred.

“Their voices add to the examples of Republican state and local election officials in states like Georgia who’ve refused to be intimidated and have discharged their duties honorably,” Obama added. “We need more leaders like these — right now and in the days, weeks, and months ahead as President-Elect Biden works to restore a common purpose to our politics. It’s up to all of us as Americans, regardless of party, to support him in that goal.”

The elite in both parties hate Donald Trump and hate his voters.

And Obama and others saw the mayhem at the Capitol as their best opportunity to excommunicate President Trump and his voters from American life by arresting them, banning them from social media, and preventing them from engaging in everyday activities like flying on planes or staying in hotels.
