Barack Obama Punctures Trump’s Biden Election Conspiracies With A Football Analogy
Written by Black Voices on December 1, 2020
Former President Barack Obama used a soccer analogy to debunk President Donald Trump’s fading makes an attempt to steal the 2020 election.
Obama likened Trump’s baseless claims of mass voter fraud and his false assertion that he really gained the vote to the shedding workforce refusing to simply accept defeat within the Tremendous Bowl, although everybody was watching and holding rating.
“I suppose in the event you had the opposite workforce simply refuse to acknowledge it and also you had half the league say ‘we’re undecided it’s true,’ you’d have the same controversy,” Obama mentioned in an interview that aired on Monday’s broadcast of “The Late Present with Stephen Colbert.” The primary little bit of the interview aired final week.
“However when that begins taking place, the sport itself breaks down,” Obama continued. “And on this case, it’s not a recreation. It’s our democracy. Our democracy begins falling aside. Think about if, going ahead, each single election is handled this fashion, at each stage. Think about if Democrats acted this fashion.”
President-elect Joe Biden “goes to be the following president,” Obama mentioned, including: “However we don’t wish to get right into a sample the place we’re simply prepared to throw out what we’ve got agreed to beforehand together with our constitutional construction.”
