(National Sentinel)Â Presidential Hypocrisy:Â If you needed any more evidence that Democrats and their supporters live in an alternative world of their own creation, this should do it.
On the campaign trail in Virginia stumping on behalf of Democratic gubernatorial candidateÂ Ralph Northam, former President Obama had the audacity to complain about politicians whoÂ divide Americans in order to win office.
And, of course, President Donald J. Trump was Exhibit A for Obama who, likeÂ all Democratic presidents before him, is shunning tradition by criticizing his predecessor in public.
â€œIf you have to win a campaign by dividing people, youâ€™re not going to be able to govern them. You wonâ€™t be able to unite them later if thatâ€™s how you start,â€ Obama said.
And while Obama didn’t mention Trump by name, that’s exactly who he was talking about and who the crowd identified with,Â The Blaze noted.
This from a president who earned the nickname “divider-in-chief” while in office because he (and Democrats in general) used to divide Americans byÂ their profession, income level, education level, subculture, age, gender, etc.
In fact,Â dividing Americans intoÂ subgroupsÂ is the Democratic Party’s chief political strategy, as the party (under Obama) decided upon way back in 2008 when he ran his first presidential campaign.
Surveys taken at the very end of Obamaâ€™s presidency also found that America was much more divided after his eight years than they were before.
Conservatives, including Ben Shapiro, were quick to call Obama out for his blatant hypocrisy.
Yeah, especially if you continue that pattern of intentionally dividing them during your two terms. Yeah, you’re so right. https://t.co/ScCeUJztvz

Obama today said he "laments the politics of division."
What a joke. Obama is the most divisive President this country has ever had.

And so on.
The problem with what Obama said is not that it’s blatantly false. It’s that far too many AmericansÂ actually believe him.
