Former President Barrack Obama sat down Wednesday to do an interview with the Breakfast Club, a podcast, and made a jab at Hispanic voters who supported Trump, saying that they ignored his racist comments because they support the president’s view on gay marriage and abortion.
While looking at 2020 election results, President Trump won a larger percentage of Hispanics than he did four years ago, improving his margins in 78 of 100 Hispanic counties in key battleground states. He won 28% of the demographics back in 2016, compared to 2020 where he won 32%. People were shocked to see the President do so well after four years of liberal news networks slamming his immigration policies and focus on border security as “racist.”
President Trump also won the highest percentage of the LGBT vote for any Republican presidential nominee, 28%, since George W. Bush in 2000.
“People were surprised about a lot of Hispanic folks who voted for Trump, but there’s a lot of evangelical Hispanics who, the fact that Trump says racist things about Mexicans, or puts detainees, undocumented workers in cages, they think that’s less important than the fact that he supports their views on gay marriage or abortion,” said Obama.
Obama has been heavily criticized for constantly referencing undocumented migrants being held in cages as a practice that started in the Trump Administration. Photo documentation shows that the chain-link enclosures were built during the Obama presidency and, at one point, had detained 60,000 unaccompanied minors at the southern border.
“Ah yes, those Hispanic evangelicals. So backwards. Clinging to their guns and religion, you might say. Barack Obama still the most condescending corporate liberal in America,” tweeted Sen. Josh Hawley.
Others pointed out that Hispanics are moving to voting Republican as more liberals attack their belief of faith. It’s ironic to mock “evangelical Hispanics” during a time in which you are calling for a nation to heal, but hey, the left has it all wrong.
It’s unclear what jab Obama was looking to make in referencing the President’s view on gay marriage. Obama had first opposed gay marriage when he ran for the 2008 presidency, then later “evolved” to please the radical left. President Trump, however, said he was fine with same-sex unions and the U.S Supreme Court’s decision to allow it when he took office in 2016. He was also the first elected president to support gay marriage while campaigning for office.
Obama and the rest of the Democratic Party look to blame everything on President Trump, then turn around and declare that it is “time for unity.” They race-bait, gaslight, and add fuel to the fire through dismissive comments and the support of fake news.
News networks turn a blind eye when it comes to fact-checking a liberal, but as President Trump once asked… Who built the cages?
