On Thursday, April 5, 2018, at the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston, Michelle Obama gave an interview in which she said that the Obama administration had been a “good parent” to Americans and that the Trump administration is being a “bad parent” for the citizens of the United States. The first thing the former first lady needs to be told is that Americans don’t vote for a president in search of a “parent”. America has operated just fine for over 200 years, thank you very much, with no parenting requested and none needed.
In her description as to what constitutes a “bad parent” she said that the Trump administration is allowing we citizen children to figuratively have unlimited amounts of candy and ice cream and he’s not insisting that we do our homework each night after school. This criticism was just another Obama line of leftist, radical crap.
The problem with Mrs. Obama’s parenting example is that it’s the Trump administration that is insisting that national traditions, laws and the constitution of the United States be followed and obeyed by us citizens. It was, on the other hand, the Obama administration that denied American citizens their own personal selection of healthcare and that opened our southern border for an invasion of illegal aliens from all nations. Obama oversaw the sanctuary cities scheme that protects criminals from America’s law enforcement agencies; he oversaw the leftist push for citizens to self-identify as to their personal preference of gender and race, and allowed the EPA to issue regulations that brought the American economy to a standstill and caused a sky-rocketing unemployment rate, with the result causing personal suffering in many lives, which further led directly to an increase in the welfare roles in America. It was also the Obama administration that began the destruction of America’s coal industry, celebrated the Black Lives Matter organization, which demanded the assassination of police officers, and it was Barack Obama who kicked the North Korea can down the road and allowed Kim Jong-un to further develop nuclear weapons and the missiles to deliver them, which now presents an existential threat to the United States. So now the real, adult “parent” in the form of Donald Trump has to deal with this urgent issue along with the massive illegal immigration issue Obama left behind.
It was indeed the Obama administration that opened the welfare candy jar, doubled the American debt and allowed the American military to weaken while our national enemies became stronger in comparison. It was obviously the Obama administration that allowed the nation to run wild for eight years while Obama tried to “Fundamentally Transform America”, whereas the Trump administration is already rearming the military and has, in his first year in office, pushed legislation that has allowed us citizens to keep more of our own money in the form of a tax reduction.
One suspects that Michelle Obama was simply bemoaning the fact that aware Americans fought back at the Obama administration in its attempts to indeed treat us like children and make enslaved dependants of us with Barack’s big government schemes to rule the nation at his personal whim, and we instead chose the rule of law and liberty that Donald Trump offered. Americans watch nations like Venezuela crumble and know what awaits people who follow tyrants down the road to poverty and dependence, and we aren’t buying the Obamas’ load of lies. We want freedom and prosperity, not a welfare state.
Americans are not children, and we don’t need a mommy and a daddy, especially not the radical, anti-American parents that the Obama administration was.
