Michelle Obama: “Our Folks” Caused Trump to Win
The logical conclusion of Leftist philosophy, which has as its foundation an ever-reaching, over-arching government ruling by fiat, is that it owns people, their actions and thoughts, in deference to the all-powerful State.
We’re reminded of this constantly, but nowhere has it been more blatant than the Democrat party’s mentality that they “own” the votes of certain demographics. The latest example of this comes courtesy of former First Lady Michelle Obama, while speaking of Donald Trump’s 2016 victory over Hillary Clinton. Obama suggested that the people who sat out of the 2016 election could have flipped the race to Hillary.
Fox News reports that in Netflix documentary on Michelle Obama, “Becoming,” she laments that these voters chose not to vote:
“So, the day I left the White House, and I write about how painful it was to sit on that [inauguration] stage,” she said. “A lot of our folks didn’t vote. It was almost like a slap in the face.
“I understand the people who voted for Trump,” she added. “The people who didn’t vote at all, the young people, the women, that’s when you think, man, people think this is a game.”
She also laments the House, and eventual Senate, flip to the GOP, and blames the same people:
“Every midterm. Every time Barack didn’t get the Congress he needed, that was because our folks didn’t show up,” she said. “After all that work, they just couldn’t be bothered to vote at all. That’s my trauma.”
Her “trauma.” How unbelievably out-of-touch.
Because, of course, the Obama administration and the Democrat party never did anything wrong that could possibly turn off voters in her mind. But even if he did, it doesn’t matter, because, in their minds, they own you. They’re entitled to your serfdom. You owe them just because of who you are, and because they say “they care.”
The Left has clearly learned nothing since 2016 – and they’re in for another surprise this November.
