Former President Barack Obama believes the world would be a much better place if there were a million more versions of himself walking around.
During an event on Monday night at Winnipeg’s Bell MTS Place arena, Obama argued that the world’s future would be much brighter if there were a million prototypes of himself and his wife, former First Lady Michelle Obama.
Obama detailed his plans to install a “university for social change” that will create hub for young people in America and around the world who don’t trust “old institutions,” the Washington Examiner reported.
“If we train them — if we give them skills, support, financing, media training, spotlights, then they’re the ones that are going to carry forward the solutions that we so desperately need,” Obama sad.
“If we could form a network of those young leaders, not just in the United States, but around the world, then we got something,” he continued.
Hope, Obama argued, is attainable “if we can train a million Baracks and Michelles who are running around thinking they can change the world.”
Cameras were not allowed inside the arena, which may explain why Obama went on to make a slew of petty comments.
Obama did not mention President Donald Trump by name during his remarks, but CBC reports that the former president arrogantly claimed that America’s leadership — which is a shot at Trump — may not have been able to handle a major situation like the financial crisis of 2007-2008.
“If we had a crisis today, I’m concerned that we, at least in the United States, may not be in the habit of trying figure things out in a common sense, practical way,” Obama arrogantly claimed, propping himself up.
“I think the danger that we have sometimes now in our politics in the United States, and what I’m seeing internationally, is us being driven by passions, and (we) are disconnected from facts, that in fact deliberately are shielded from facts and reason and logic,” he added.
The 44th president also took a shot at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell by attacking him for “not cooperating” with the Affordable Care Act, Obama’s signature legislation that, ironically, 2020 Democratic candidates are vowing to repeal and replace.
Obama may be hiding behind the cameras to dish out his petty grudges, but he’s apparently trying to create a million prototypes of himself to have a major impact on the world.
