This is so funny. Obama may not be very fond of Donald Trump now but years before he became president, he acknowledged Trump’s success in his own writing!
Vice News reports:
Young Obama Said the American Dream Is to Be Donald Trump
In 1991, Barack Obama was 29 years old and about to graduate from Harvard Law School. That year, he penned a paper with his buddy Robert Fisher called “Race and Rights Rhetoric” where he summed up the average American mindset in one rather brutal and prescient sentence: “I may not be Donald Trump now, but just you wait; if I don’t make it, my children will.”
That excerpt of that previously unpublished law school paper, and much more, is inside Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, the behemoth new 1,460-page biography of Obama that focuses on his early years. Although the New York Times called the book “a bloated, tedious and… ill-considered book that is in desperate need of editing, and way more exhausting than exhaustive,” it has at least a few interesting tidbits, including a young Obama’s thoughtful analysis of the American psyche’s Trumpian desires.
This is the excerpt from Obama’s own writing:
[Americans have] a continuing normative commitment to the ideals of individual freedom and mobility, values that extend far beyond the issue of race in the American mind. The depth of this commitment may be summarily dismissed as the unfounded optimism of the average American—I may not be Donald Trump now, but just you wait; if I don’t make it, my children will.
If Obama keeps getting paid $400K or a cool million for giving boring speeches, he will be almost as wealthy as Donald Trump in a few years.
And Democrats won’t say a word because they’re hypocrites.
