Former (thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama has a message for rich Democrat donors Quit moping
Former (thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama spoke last night in front of 200 Democrat donors and he had some tough love for party big spenders. Donors had to shell out $2,700-$100,000 to listen to the former President drone on. His deep message for the despondent Democrats was quit moping.
“If what you are doing requires no sacrifice at all, then you can do more,” Obama told the tony crowd at a sweeping multi-million-dollar Beverley Hills home. “If you are one of these folks who is watching cable news at your cocktail parties with your friends and you are saying ‘civilization is collapsing’ and you are nervous and worried, but that is not where you are putting all your time, energy and money, then either you don’t actually think civilization is collapsing … or you are not pushing yourself hard enough and I would push harder.”
At one point, he turned to the crowd and declared, “Enough moping, this is a mope-free zone.”
And the former President even suggested to the roughly 200 donors in attendance, who also enjoyed a performance from Christina Aguilera, that Democrats can’t get fixated on the glitz and personality of politics.
“I would caution us from extrapolating too much from a bunch of special elections and starting to think, ‘OK, this will take care of itself,'” he said. “Because it won’t.”
“We shouldn’t expect (politics) to be entertaining all the time — and Christina Aguilera was wonderful — but you don’t need to have an amazing singer at every event,” he said. “Sometimes you are just in a church basement making phone calls and eating cold pizza.”
It is ironic that Obama had to give these rich donors a talk to quit moping while their last candidate for President is still touring to explain “what happened.” And his DOJ including Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Jim Come, Andrew McCabe cannot acknowledge that Donald Trump won the Presidency despite their interference.
Obama stayed clear of direct criticism of President Trump but did have something to say about Republicans in general.
“They are mad even when they win,” he exclaimed. “Have you noticed that? They don’t look happy at all!”
That is another ironic statement since his party is the one that he has to lecture to quit moping.
