    So was Obama insulting every police man and woman? Was Obama an asshole? Was Obama inconsiderate?

    Oh and why wasn't the media all bent out of shape when Obama said basically the same thing as Trump?

    Because they're fucking liberal wankers all of them.

    "However, former President Obama used nearly identical language in a 2009 speech given in front of a crowd at a police graduation in Columbus, Ohio.

    Obama’s remarks read in part,

    The job you signed up for is not easy. It can mean long shifts and late nights. It demands focus, and determination, and great bravery in the face of unknown dangers. When you run into that building or chase down that suspect, you will be risking your own life in order to protect the lives of men and women you have never met, and some that you may never know.

    But you knew all that when you joined the academy. You knew the risks involved, you knew the sacrifices required, and yet you stood up and said, ‘I’ll take that risk. I’ll make that sacrifice. I will do that job.’"

    He wasn't talking to a grieving widow about her dead husband. He was talking to a graduating class of police officers.

    Everything Trump says is twisted by the DNC media, and many Americans aren't smart enough to see the left wing propaganda being spoon feed them.

    There is no doubt Trump is an asshole, but no more so than Obama and likely less so. Obama was a Godlike figure to the Left. He was so cool, with his huge ears. He could do no wrong. Trump on the other hand, to the left, is wrong about everything.

    The left is like a petulant two year old child. Only dumber.

    Obama? Why do you always take the dishonest, stupid, and ugly side of every issue - and then try to justify it with bullshit and twisted logic?

    . So you say that there were no grieving mother's, wives or father's of the fallen ever around to listen when Obama spoke ????? Good grief... The taking bits and pieces of a conversation like that activist racist congress woman did was pathetic. Do you people have no shame when such things are learned in the aftermath of finding out exactly what took place ? It's amazing how many leftist are out there waiting for the slightest word or speak from this President, to then spin it into something ridiculous afterwards.
