Former President Barack Obama was called a “parasite” in Edward Isaac Dovere’s new book titled, “Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaign to Defeat Trump,” according to Fox News.
Obama is described as a “Parasite” that sucked the Democratic Party dry in order to get reelected.
“The numbers are hard to ignore: during his eight years in office, Obama oversaw a net loss of 947 state legislative seats, 63 House seats, 11 senators, and 13 governors.”
“Obama never built a Democratic bench and never cared to, aside from a few scattered candidates who interested him.”
The book reveals that Obama had harsh words to share in regard to Trump.
Obama allegedly called Donald Trump a “F*****g Lunatic.
From Fox News:
In a chapter entitled “Benign Neglect,” Dovere writes that the section’s namesake is how Obama aides privately described his abandonment of the Democratic Party once in the White House. “‘Negligence’ might be more accurate,” Dovere, writer for The Atlantic and former chief Washington correspondent for Politico, writes.
In 2008, Democrats increased their majorities in the House and Senate, delivering Obama the legislature for his first two years in office. In 2010, Republicans took the majority in the House with the Tea Party wave and Democrats maintained but shrunk their majority in the Senate. In 2014, Republicans gained control of both the House and Senate.
Dovere writes that the 44th president carried himself with a “self-assured self-regard.”
