Barack Obama is back in the news in two entirely different contexts depending on which political universe you live in.
If you're a Leftist, or someone stupid enough to trust the mainstream media, the only Obama story in the news is that in a (suspiciously) "leaked" video chat with former members of his administration, the former dog-eating, gun-running president viciously attacked President Trump's handling of the coronavirus crisis as "an absolute chaotic disaster." A phrase which he perhaps remembers being applied to every aspect of the Obamacare rollout.
Referring to Attorney General Barr's handling of the dismissal of charges against General Michael Flynn after the FBI admitted gross malfeasance, Obama declared "the rule of law is at risk."
And as long as he was on a roll, Barry once again ripped into the American people and the "long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy has become a stronger impulse in American life." Of course, he may have a valid point, because we could feel our impulses growing stronger with every word he spoke.
Meanwhile, if you're on the Right (or simply sentient), you're seeing an entirely different representation of Obama in the news. Specifically that he's been clearly linked to (and possibly headed) the cabal of high-ranking (and highly rank) Washington insiders who framed and persecuted General Flynn as part of the grander plan to undermine or remove Donald Trump as President of the United States. A coup attempt, plain and simple.
Our best guess is that Barry's comments were deliberately funneled to the news outlets to distract from the very real criminal charges that may soon be rolling out against miscreants like Jim Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, Lisa Page, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and many others - including the Fresh Prince of Chicago himself.
We are living in a chaotic time, but finally seeing actual justice and the real rule of law applied to these treasonous conspirators would help give us at least a little peace of mind.
