Obama likes to lecture Americans.
It was a torturous hallmark of his eight years in office.
But he never counted on that coming back to haunt him.
Liberals like Obama love to blab about “income inequality.”
Even though it continued to get worse on Obama’s watch because he gutted the middle class with globalism, Obama likes to brag about how much compassion he has since that is the true measuring stick for a liberal.
There is just one problem.
Obama gave a speech about income inequality at the Montreal Chamber of Commerce while being paid $400,000 for his remarks.
Former President Barack Obama spoke to the Chamber of Commerce in Montreal on Tuesday, warning against income inequality and the concentration of wealth—remarks from a man who reportedly commanded $400,000 a speech, or $7,700-a-minute at that rate, for his Canadian speech.
Obama said the world must do more to combat income inequality, noting that the concentration of wealth fans fears that governments exist solely to benefit the powerful, NBC reported.
“That’s a recipe for more cynicism and more polarization, less trust in our institutions and less trust in each other,” Obama said.
“And it’s part of what leads people to turn to populist alternatives that may not actually deliver,” Obama said in a thinly disguised jab at President Donald Trump without naming his successor specifically.”
Democrat base voters are constantly railing against the “one percent” and their accumulation of wealth.
That was the focal point of Bernie Sanders “revolution”.
But just like Obama, Sanders wants to suck the capitalist system for all it’s worth while railing against anyone else enjoying its spoils.
Sanders owns three homes and raked in a $795,000 book advance in 2016.
Now that Obama is no longer President, he can join Sanders in feathering his bank account by railing against the wealthy.
But if Obama wants to complain about income inequality, he doesn’t have to look any further than his own mirror to find someone to blame.
His Presidency was smack dab in the middle of a 15-year trend where Americans wages remained flat.
And one of his key policy lines in the sand was open borders and importing millions of foreign workers to depress the wages of American citizens.
Obama also backed the globalist Trans Pacific Partnership and Paris Accords which would have gutted American manufacturing jobs and further slashed wages.
Liberals scapegoat capitalism and invent boogeymen like corporate robber barons to distract from the fact it’s their policies that are killing middle class Americans chances at prosperity.
And they like to lecture about income inequality while living high off the hog and pointing to everyone else as greedy capitalistic pigs.
Obama was just another in a long line of liberals trying to pull off this scam.
