Obama says any black person voting for Trump would be a personal insult – to himself
May Bulman, Independent, Sep 18 2916
Obama has said it would be a “personal insult” if black voters don’t vote Clinton in the election. During an
impassioned egomaniacal speech to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Obama said it would be an “insult to his legacy” if the black community voted for Trump, or refrained from voting at all, in the election. Obama said:
If I hear anybody saying their vote does not matter, that it doesn’t matter who we elect, read up on your history. It matters. We’ve got to get people to vote. I will consider it a personal insult – an insult to my legacy – if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election! You want to give me a good sendoff? Go vote!
ardent pompous speech came less than two months before election day and marked his most forceful plea to the black community to get behind Clinton in the presidential race. During the speech the President also joked about Trump’s admission about his birth certificate. He said:
Daesh, North Korea, poverty, climate change, none of those things weighed on my mind like the validity of my birth certificate.
Obama referred to Trump as “somebody who has fought against civil rights and fought against equality and who has shown no regard for working people most of his life.” Clinton also delivered a speech at the dinner and made a pitch for
African-American Black Pindostani support, during which she said that Obama was one of the best Presidents in history.
