[WATCH] Fox News Host To Obama : It Wasn’t Fox News That Caused Dems To Lose Election … It Was You
Fox News’ Neil Cavuto took Barack Obama down a few pegs over the matter of the root cause of the Democrats’ loss during the 2016 presidential election.
Much of the Left has speculated that Hillary Clinton’s loss had nothing to do with her or her platform, but instead had everything to do with the fact that America is a bunch of racist, sexist, bigotist, white-supremacists who got suckered into believing “fake news” articles.
The number of things that Hillary Clinton has blamed for her defeat is extensive, and there have been several compilations of the former Secretary of State blaming others.
Even former-President Barack Obama inserted himself into the conversation of speculation over why the Democrats lost. In an interview with Rolling Stones Magazine, Obama said,
“Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country, but part of it is also Democrats not working at a grassroots level, being in there, showing up, making arguments.”
Neil Cavuto was having none of it, and suggested that Obama was in denial over the Democratic Party’s loss.
“To this day, he’s convinced that it is not anything that he did, but that it is anything and everything else.”
He went on to say that it was the president’s policies that were actually to blame.
Over the eight years of the Obama era, the nation faced a myriad of social, political, economic, and foreign policy disasters that have caused misery and suffering.
“Fox News didn’t create this populist wave, your policies did.”
The Obama administration heralded the “Arab Spring” as akin the the Civil Rights movement as well as the American Founding Fathers. Instead, it lead to the Middle East erupting into turmoil as the leadership in Egypt was replaced with the radical Islamist group the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Obama administration spoke positively about the Black Lives Matter movement, and had key members visiting the White House, even though the group’s anti-police rhetoric has arguably led to a mistrust between some sectors of the American people and violence towards the police.
The Obama administration, in only eight years, doubled the National Debt to 20 trillion dollars.
Barack Obama’s signature legislation, Obamacare, has led to millions of Americans losing their health care and doctors or being forced to purchase plans with deductibles that they cannot afford.
It could easily be argued, as well, that the American people were tired of the lack of transparency and blatant corruption that was a characteristic of the Obama administration.
Cavuto pointed out that, prior to the election, Obama went out campaigning for candidate Hillary Clinton. While stumping for the former Secretary of State, Obama repeatedly told audience members that his policies were on the ballet because Hillary was going to be the one to continue the policies of the last eight years.
The fact that Hillary lost seems to be a complete repudiation of the fundamental transformation of the United States.
Cavuto spoke as if addressing Obama,
“You were the reason they were angry. Your were the reason they were anxious.
Boasting more government when maybe voters wanted less government.”
Share this if you think Cavuto is right on with his remarks, that the 2016 presidential election results were a repudiation of Obama’s policies.
