First of all, that's a blog post.
Second of all, Obama's rhetoric was not as caustic as Trump's. I know his administration mishandled the Snowden leaks. And aggressively went after sources of journalists. I know his administration stood idly by while the police shut down the Occupy movement. Even though, that Occupy movement did kind of rot from the inside. But, that's ancillary to the point I'm making. Obama never commanded his supporters to distrust the news the way Trump has.
this poll says 72 percent says the news makes up stories out of whole cloth. What percent of the country would believe the news was flat out racist if Obama had branded them the White Devil news? And can you see how that is damaging to the country.. as well as just flat out wrong to do?
So you also are in the boat of yes he did it but he was nicer about it?
