“We Want The America Of Barack Obama”: Obama’s Former AG SLAMS President Trump

Eric Holder is speaking his mind.

Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder has decided to let loose. Feeling unfettered since he is no longer in office, Holder bashed President Trump and Republicans in general and made the outrageous statement, “We want the America of Barack Obama.”

Holder is now working for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee and recently told Politico that his new position allowed him much more freedom to speak his mind;

“You don’t do politics when you’re attorney general, but as a private citizen and as a defender of the Obama legacy, I’m free to say what I want and to say it in the way that I’d like to. I probably would not have [attacked Republicans like] that while I was attorney general. I didn’t have an orange man who I was serving under, but, I mean, I would not have said that about a former president, for instance, while I was attorney general. But now, I’m just a citizen and I’ve got the full range of my voice back.”

The former AG did not hold back. While he later admitted that today’s problems were not entirely the fault of President Trump, most of his statements seem to indicate the issues never existed under Obama’s reign;

“You’re telling Donald Trump that’s not the America I want. We want the America of Barack Obama. The president sets a moral tone, and I think in that regard President Trump has not done the job we expect of our leaders. The election of Barack Obama did not magically transform us as a people and eradicate bigotry, eradicate neo-Nazis and white nationalists. They were still there, but they didn’t feel empowered in a way that I think they do now.”

It is unclear what dream world liberals were living in for the eight years that Obama was in office, but Eric Holder was there. In less than a year, President Trump has done more for America than Obama ever did but the left is still caught up in their loss.
