Editor’s Note: The ridiculous hypocrisy of this is enough to make one’s head implode. Then again, this is a guy who just got done telling the United Nations that America is “a force for good” in the world without bursting into laughter.
Barack Obama recently criticized presidential candidate Donald Trump’s admiration of Vladimir Putin, but his complaint was hypocritically laughable. Though no one in their right mind would pretend the Russian president is any kind of saintly figure, Obama’s choice of words in scrutinizing his Russian counterpart turned into a largely accurate description of himself.
The American president attacked Trump for praising Putin as being a “strong leader” despite the fact that, according to Obama, Putin “invades smaller countries,” jails political opponents, controls his country’s media, and has driven Russia’s economy into recession.
Let’s go through those claims one by one.
Putin Invades Smaller Countries
In 2011, Obama invaded Libya, the country with the highest standard of living in Africa, plunging the rich democracy into a perpetual state of civil war. U.S. media tried to claim the American role in this conflict was secondary in a so-called “leading from behind” capacity. But the truth is the U.S. was the second biggest, if not the biggest contributor to this war (depending on the report). It was an American drone that struck Muammar Gaddafi’s motorcade, effectively sealing the fate of the Libyan leader.
