Former President Barack Obama delivered a speech last week to attendees of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, but organizers threatened journalists, telling them they were in no way allowed to report on his comments.
“Following the panel, the sharing or reporting of its contents on public platforms (including social media) will not be permitted,” conference organizers told media members. “Those who fail to adhere to this policy will be subject to removal from the conference and denied tickets to future SSAC conferences.”
Sadly for Obama, somebody defied those marching orders and leaked the speech online.
So why did he want the speech to remain tucked away, only to be heard by event-goers? Probably because some his statements were delusional, while others were outright lies.
There was the usual liberal tripe in the speech. For instance, Obama had to get in some comments about his global warming cult, as if sports analytics people give a rip about unsettled science.
The former president said it’s okay to disagree about how to address climate change, but it’s not okay to argue that it doesn’t exist. What a good little cultist …
“You and I can have an argument about climate change …” but “I can’t have that same debate with somebody who just holds up a snowball in the middle of the Senate chamber in winter and says, ‘look there’s no climate change because it’s snowing!’” Obama said.
Beyond the usual liberal nonsense, however, was this gem, in which Obama took a shot at President Trump in the most delusional manner possible.
So Obama took a swipe at Trump during a speech : ‘We Didn’t Have A Scandal That Embarrassed Us’
REALLY? How about HILLARY FLIPPING CLINTON, Dossier, FISA warrant, Uranium One.

“We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us,” he said, adding, “I know that seems like a low bar.”
The jab was clearly directed at the Trump Administration, and the crowd roared their approval.
“Generally speaking, you didn’t hear about a lot of drama inside our White House,” Obama added.
Honestly, claiming the Obama years were scandal-free should have been what elicited laughter from the crowd.
Where to begin – Fast and Furious, Benghazi, weaponizing the IRS against political opponents, his attorney general held in contempt of Congress, spying on journalists, Hillary’s secret server, the Bowe Bergdahl for terrorists trade, ransom payments to Iran, the VA death list scandal, Solyndra, killing American citizens with drones without due process, and on, and on, and on …
Not to mention the recently revealed FISA warrant scandal.
Surely Obama can’t think the American people are so stupid… can he? The only reason ‘you didn’t hear a lot of drama inside your White House,’ Mr. Obama, is because the lapdog media, an extension of your administration, refused to report on it.
