Obama calls Trump a symptom of "misinformation" led by conservative media

Former U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday said his successor, Donald Trump, is a “symptom” and an “accelerant” of misinformation to American society, bred by the conservative media infrastructure.

Obama, who was speaking during a podcast interview with two of his former aides, Jon Favreau and Tommy Vietor, said that although the “conservative media infrastructure” existed before Trump took office, he has allowed “insane” conspiracy theories, like QAnon, infiltrate the mainstream Republican Party.

Classed as a potential source of domestic terrorism by the FBI, QAnon is driven by an anonymous internet poster nicknamed Q who claims to be a Trump administration insider. The core, nonsensical claim is that Trump is secretly leading a crackdown against an enormous pedophile ring that includes prominent Democrats and the Hollywood elite.

Obama said if fellow Democrat Joe Biden was elected in the Presidential election next month he would have an understanding of what the world expected from American leadership.

    Why Global news did not share the breakout news about Hunter Biden to the Canadians? Why Global news is now out of nowhere giving
    Obama a chance to have his opinion heard? Global news, you just like these major US liftsided media, you select what you want us to see and hear, it's not your choice, you just a media, a platform to share, we are the ones to decide if it's true or not. WE KNOW WHERE YOU STAND NOW.

    Well this is the kettle calling the pot black. I love how Global finds no irony in posting this callout of 'disinformation'. Global is a paid-out shill for the Trudeau government (that's on the left in Canada if you are unaware) and consistently puts out misinformation. This morning I watched the news anchor, in reference to the two "Town Halls" state: "Trump was combative and on the defence". Yeah, well if you actually took a minute to watch that shitshow you would see the woman badger and interrupt him at EVERY sentence. As a Canadian I am not on either side ideologically, apart from not wanting to support the lying democrats who have done everything in their power to remove this guy, yet their best defence now is Joe Biden? They set this up to make sleepy sniffy snarky Joe look like a kindly old gentleman and Trump to be 'combative'. Misinformation indeed. Global sucks and Barrack Obama can kick rocks.

    You, Obama sold our uranium to Russia. You got kickbacks from 500,000 Clinton got for speech to Russian company and 3.5 million Hunter got from Russian mayors wife. You gave over 100 billion to Iran to support terrorism around the world. You got kickbacks from Biden’s 1.5 billion China investment. You’re as crooked as Biden and Clinton

    Fox "news" has had its propaganda machine going strong for at least the last 20 years

    And they use whoever they elect as president as their scapegoat and slink back into the Shadows unseen and unnoticed to manipulate the next set of issues for the next term
