WATCH: Obama Used Phrase ‘Monkey Around’ in 2008, No Leftist Outrage

Published

on

A gubernatorial candidate from Florida lit the internet on fire Wednesday morning when he used a common phrase that is now apparently racist, according to the political left.

“The last thing we need to do is monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state,” Ron DeSantis said on Fox News in reference to his race against Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum.

Gillum is a black man, and the commonly-used turn of phrase was automatically deemed to be racist by frothing leftists.

But for your viewing pleasure, Twitter user TheLastRefuge found a clip of former President Barack H. Obama using the same term in a 2008 speech, once again exposing the hypocrisy of the left.

“I want to be honest. It’s not just Republicans who have monkeyed around with elections in the past. Sometimes Democrats have too,” Obama said in reference to voter fraud.

There was no outrage when Obama used the phrase, because it was not politically expedient for the left to manufacture outrage when he used it.
