Former President Barack Obama received a lot of harsh criticism from Republicans, Fox News, and Donald Trump himself throughout his 8 years in office. But apparently, according to conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, Obama was treated like an angle and not a “single major Republican figure” questioned his legitimacy as president.
“Republicans impeached Bill Clinton in the 1990s, they never made a move to impeach Barack Obama despite the myriad of scandals that cropped up during his administration,” Shapiro said in a video clip reported Monday by The Daily Beast.
“I’m not aware of a single major Republican figure who said Barack Obama is not the president of the United States,” he added.
Shapiro did not elaborate on the “myriad of scandals” he was referring to.
I’m not quite sure which world Shapiro lives in, but Obama had to endure 8 years of harassment from right-wingers like Trump, who began a conspiracy theory claiming Obama wasn’t born in the United States.
