Former President Barack Hussein Obama reminded people how much of an arrogant jerk he is by telling people “you get the politicians you deserve”…
“People have a tendency to blame politicians when things don’t work, but as I always tell people, you get the politicians you deserve,” Obama said, to loud applause. “And if you don’t vote and you don’t pay attention, you’ll get policies that don’t reflect your interest.”
Obama was speaking in Milan at a summit on food innovation. He has spoken broadly about the democratic process in a handful of public appearances since the end of his tenure, and he devoted his good-bye address in Chicago to democracy and urging Americans to engage in politics.
People didn’t take to kindly to his remarks…
.@BarackObama People’s whole lives are at stake, many have already been ruined, and Obama says “you get the politicians you deserve.” I’m sick.
