JUST IN: Audio footage has just leaked of the “secret speech” Barack Obama gave in Massachusetts last week, and unsurprisingly, he spent much of it taking veiled attacks at Donald Trump.
Daily Mail reported that while speaking at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference at MIT on Friday, Obama took a thinly veiled swipe at Trump when he boasted that his White House survived eight years without a major scandal. Obama claimed that diversity in his administration was the reason for the lack of drama in his White House.
“We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us,” he said, going on to claim that his staff made no major mistakes.
“I know that seems like a low bar,” he added.

Of course, many of us know that Obama actually had many scandals when he was in the White House, the mainstream media just did not report on them with the same vigor that they do with Trump’s scandals because they were desperate to protect Obama.
The former president also attacked Fox News, saying that Americans today live in “different realities” where they not only have “different opinions, but different facts.” He blamed this partly on media organizations like Fox News and The New York Times editorial page that “do not describe the same thing.”
“If you look at these different sources of information, they do not describe the same thing,” Obama said. “In some cases, they do not even talk about the same thing – and so it is very difficult to figure out how democracy works over the long term in those circumstances.”
Obama made it clear that he supports the censorship of conservatives on social media when he called on Facebook and Google to change their business models. Of course, what he really meant here was to encourage these social media outlets to continue to make it more difficult for conservatives to spread their ideas.
“I do think the large platforms – Google and Facebook being the most obvious, Twitter and others as well, are part of the ecosystem – have to have a conversation about their business model that recognizes they are a public good as well as a commercial enterprise,” Obama said. “They’re not just an invisible platform, they’re shaping our culture in powerful ways.”
Twitter users, however, made it clear that they wish Obama would go away:
#POtuS44 is delusional. We need several special prosecutors to investigate the many crimes of most corrupt & criminal POTUS.

Who promoted racial unrest by waiting 3 DAYS to respond to Ferguson Riots and then got it WRONG and then invited BLM to the Whitehouse?
Who bugged Angela Merkels phone?
