Michelle Obama Blames Never Hillary Democrats for 2016 Trump Victory
Michelle Obama is said to blame apathetic Democrats for Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 election in an upcoming Netflix documentary called ‘Becoming.’
The former first lady also goes on to recount the bitterness of participating in President Donald Trump’s 2017 inauguration. “So, the day I left the White House, and I write about how painful it was to sit on that [inauguration] stage,” Obama explained. “A lot of our folks didn’t vote. It was almost like a slap in the face.”
The first lady also blames apathetic Democrats for poor Democratic performances in the midterm elections of 2010 and 2014, claiming that President Obama was deprived of a Democrat congress because of poor turnout. “It wasn’t just in this election. Every midterm. Every time Barack didn’t get the Congress he needed, that was because our folks didn’t show up. After all that work, they just couldn’t be bothered to vote at all. That’s my trauma.”
The former first lady seems wholly unreflective of why Democrats gradually lost the coalition that led them to victory in the 2008 and 2012 elections. Rural and midwestern Democrats largely abandoned the party as the President promoted an agenda of free trade outsourcing and elite cosmopolitan social agendas.
Unfortunately for the Democratic Party, many other party elites continue to demand blind allegiance towards the party establishment without interest in offering policy concessions to the progressive wing of the party. If the party establishment plans on blaming a potential 2020 election loss on uninterested nominal Democratic voters without self-reflection, it appears Michelle Obama’s “trauma” from the 2016 election could be repeated.
