Pretty amusing speech to say the least, the republican party has come a long way.


Quote:
Campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Philadelphia, Obama recalled Trump going on Russian "state television" -- an interview with Larry King for Russia Today's American network -- to extol his leadership by citing his high poll numbers.
"Saddam Hussein had a 90 percent poll rating!" Obama said.
While he has to do business with Russia, "I don't go around saying that's my role model" Obama said. "Can you imagine Ronald Reagan idolizing somebody like that?"


"This is the party that extols freedom and America and the flag and Ronald Reagan, and whose main criticism of me lately has been my tyrannical abuse of power," he said. "And [they nominated] the guy who actively promotes and admires a guy who jails dissidents and controls all state media, all media in his country. And hence has an 82% approval rating."

This has already been debunked.

Trump was never informed the podcast would go onto RT.

There have already been several threads about this, you dems are really desperate with Hillary's campaign going down in flames.

Funny how they put Hillary into hiding like they do every time she gets herself into trouble, and now Obama is making a fool of himself trying to prop up a dying (literally) candidate.

You can't make this stuff up. This man is praising an evil dictator and his supporters are like eh, nothing to see here... Can you imagine the outrage if Obama said such things back in 08 and they would be absolutely justified.

The rest of his statement stands, give him a bye for not knowing he was on Russian media but more importantly it's his praise for the popularity of a dictator, that does not change.
