Obama is now Badmouthing the Progressive Movement

The person most responsible for Trump and the GOP taking control of the government over the last several years is now badmouthing the only movement that will save the Democrats–and America. What Obama should be doing is denouncing the fascism of the GOP. But he’s not doing that. The former failed president should just shutup. Spend your time spending the millions you made from your ‘service’ in government:

Former President Obama expressed concern about the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, saying he feared it could end up undercutting allies.

Speaking at a town hall event on Saturday for the Obama Foundation in Berlin, the former president spoke about the need for compromise in politics, citing the Affordable Care Act as something that he said signified progress even though it did not achieve all of his aspirations for U.S. health care.

“One of the things I do worry about sometimes among progressives in the United States -maybe it’s true here as well – is a certain kind of rigidity where we say, ‘Uh, I’m sorry, this is how it’s going to be,’ and then we start sometimes creating what’s called a ‘circular firing squad,’ where you start shooting at your allies because one of them has strayed from purity on the issues. And when that happens, typically the overall effort and movement weakens,” he said.
