Obama supporters are planning to organize and work against President Trump. That’s not surprising. But the words of one Obama supporter in the story below revealed what they really think about Obama. They’re like a cult.
Obama loyalists plot Trump resistance
Election night felt like “a nightmare I couldn’t wake up from,” said Liz Jaff, a veteran of Obama’s 2008 campaign and White House. “I went from hating everybody to hating myself for not really realizing what was happening.”
Then Jaff, now at Crowdpac, had about 15 people over to her apartment in Columbia Heights on Sunday, and she started to feel better about Trump…
Obama is planning to join them soon, virtually at least.
“The president is committed to staying in touch with this group with some regularity in the months and years ahead,” Obama’s former campaign manager David Plouffe told OFA members on the call. In fact, Plouffe added, after the disastrous election results, “We’ll have to do it a little more frequently.”
Obama is still a powerful force for the generation that grew up working for him.
“He’s our Jesus Christ. We’re crazy,” said Jaff, not without self-awareness. “It’s 10 years later, and we’re still obsessed.”
For some, it’s been hard to tolerate Obama’s measured tone about Trump, when they see so much at stake. He has acknowledged that he’s biting his tongue to help facilitate a smooth transition, but has promised to rejoin the fight after Inauguration Day.
This actually helps to explain why liberals are taking the loss of the election so badly. Politics is religion to them. It’s sad, really.
