Obama 'Earns' $1 Million for Speech in Which He Absurdly Blames Trump for Growing Global Threat From China

Throughout the imperial presidency of Barack Obama, the Buck-Passer-in-Chief made even Joe Biden look like a piker, not to mention his multitudinous “Me, me, me” self-congratulatory speeches.


Welp, the hypocritical multimillionaire is still at it, this time during a speaking tour that “earned” O upwards of $1 million, in which he blamed Donald Trump for communist China’s growing global threat.

Did I mention Obama’s speaking tour was in Australia?

As reported by The Daily Mail, the former president sat down with former Australian Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop in Sydney, with people paying hundreds of dollars to hear him discuss (pontificate on) leadership and other issues, including the growing Chinese threat.

You ready?

During a discussion with Bishop specifically about China and its growing worldwide threat, Obama immediately brought up “my successor” — one Donald J. Trump — and never looked back.

Obama told Bishop that China began to change “after I left office,” (of course), with the ChiComs beginning to crack down on the civil liberties of China’s own citizens because dictator Xi Jinping believed Trump would be more lenient on Beijing.

An absurd assertion in its ludicrousy. Two words: Joe Biden, whose role we’ll visit, in a bit. Meanwhile, here’s Obama:


With my successor coming in, I think he saw an opportunity because the U.S. president didn’t seem to care that much about a rules-based international system. And so as a consequence, I think China’s attitude as well, [was] ‘we can take advantage of what appears to be a vacuum internationally on a lot of these issues.’

(Try to not spit all over your screen until we get to the end of Obama’s hysterical fairytale.)

Moving to the present (post-Trump presidency), Obama said the relationship between the U.S. and China is “significantly strained” and that tensions aren’t “going to go away anytime soon,” adding:

Nor should they, because I think there are some fundamental differences in terms of how we operate when you look at the South China Sea.

OK, stop the tape. While Obama’s last observation was fundamentally true, how in the hell is that reality Donald Trump’s fault? Remember Biden’s handling of the spy balloon, Obama? Was that Trump’s fault, too? Damn, dude.

Obama continued:

The fact of the matter is, is that if China starts claiming what had previously been international waters that is going to make life difficult for its neighbors, and for everyone, [and] long-term, I don’t even think it’s going to be good for China.


Again, correct. And again, two words: Joe Biden.

From Biden’s embarrassing — and potentially dangerous — handling of the Chinese spy balloon, to a January 2023 report that Biden would veto Republican legislation to ban the sale of oil to the ChiComs from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve to perhaps worst of all: revelation after revelation that the Biden Family Business received multiple payouts from China, including the recent trove of bank records that show Biden family members received $1.3 million.

But, hey — remember when Joe told us during the 2020 presidential campaign that China’s not gonna eat our lunch, man“?

Yet here comes Barack Obama, who rakes in upwards of a million bucks to rewrite the history of Chinese aggression over the last two years.

Meanwhile, clueless Biden continues to fiddle. Is that Trump’s fault, too, Obama?
