Former President Barack Obama described his Republican opponents as “angry, racist, and sexist” during a private conversation with top Europe elites earlier this year.
The former President went all out in his attack, according to a newly revealed transcript.
“Sometimes it just turns out they’re mean, they’re racist, they’re sexist, they’re angry,” Obama said.
“And your job is then to just beat them because they’re not persuadable,” the former president added.
Obama offered the advice to European leaders in June after speaking publicly at the Copenhagen Democracy Summit.
Obama also warned attendees away from sometimes getting too “filled up in our own self-righteousness.”
“We’re so convinced that we’re right that we forget what we are right about,” Obama said.
His remarks were revealed in a new CNN report about the former President’s political activities during the midterms.
The report added that Obama is expected to limit his appearances on the campaign trail for the midterm elections, despite his concern about the future of democracy.
Obama is preparing a summit to rally his party two weeks after Election Day if Democrats lose big in the midterms.
As CNN reported:
Obama’s small staff has instead been coordinating which appearances he’ll make and which ads he’ll record with President Joe Biden’s White House political operation and the Democratic National Committee. A similar effort already happened with fundraising emails his name has been put on – political coordination between a sitting and former president, which – like so much else in current politics – is unprecedented.
The event is described as a “Democracy Forum,” which will focus on the future of global democracy.
“We’ll explore a range of issues – from strengthening institutions and fighting disinformation to promoting inclusive capitalism and expanded pluralism – that will shape democracies for generations to come,” Obama wrote in a letter to donors.
Over the weekend, Former President Donald Trump declared the upcoming midterm election would be the chance for voters to humiliate President Joe Biden.
On Saturday, Trump predicted the corrupt Democrat machine would take an enormous hit this November.
“This election is your chance to send a strong message to all of the arrogant… leftwing radicals who want to dictate what you can say, what you can think, and how you should live your life. I don’t think so,” he said during the Save America rally:
“With your vote, you can humiliate Joe Biden,” Trump said.
