Obama Blasted for “Self-Serving” Remarks

Former President Barack Obama was criticized for recent remarks he made about Russia, which some decried as “self-serving” and “revisionist.”

“I will say that, as someone who grappled with the incursion into Crimea and the eastern portions of Ukraine, I have been encouraged by the European reaction. Because, in 2014, I often had to drag them kicking and screaming to respond in ways that we would’ve wanted to see, from those of us who describe ourselves as Western democracies,” Obama said.

The former president’s remarks, which came during the “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy” conference at the University of Chicago, didn’t resonate with everyone.

“Watch Obama’s self-serving revisionist history of how his administration responded the last time Russia invaded Ukraine in 2014,” said Max Abrahms, a terrorism expert and international security professor at Northeastern University.

    And Hillary said she didn’t have any problem with colored people, “they just need to learn to heel”…….
