Former President Barack Obama’s latest book, A Promised Land, is slated for release next week on November 17. The 44th president of the United States speaks specifically about the racist undertones and mindset of the Republican party and the fact that outgoing President Donald Trump has used racist rhetoric even before he campaigned for the White House.
According to Fox News, controversial pundit Candace Owens went on the attack against Obama for speaking on the subject that has propelled the Black Lives Movement into hyper drive as the country tries to make changes about systemic racism.
The 31-year-old author of Blackout said Obama “is the first president that has ever sat in the White House and come out …hating America.”
“It felt like we finally had arrived at a place in this country where we could put the past in the past,” she said on last night’s episode of Hannity. “Barack Obama became the president of the United States because White Americans supported him. And rather than show some unity, rather than show some respect for this country that gave him literally everything he has, he turns his back…and says, ‘Look at this despicable country. It’s broken.’
“Do you think that [Democrats] could have the humility to pause for a second and say, ‘You know what? Maybe it’s not because every single person in America is a racist,’” she said. “People are standing behind Donald J. Trump because he is an effective and good leader who tells the truth and doesn’t …run on identity politics.”
Owens, who has just filed a lawsuit against USA Today and Facebook third-party fact-checkers, took to Twitter this morning to threaten the possibility of running for the presidency in 2024.
2024 is a long way off…
Maybe I’ll run as his successor. https://t.co/GviudBTDeZ
