On the heels of launching efforts to save a veteran who said he wanted to kill himself, James Woods — whose Twitter feed has become one of the more popular conservative follows — offered his fans a reminder of the self-proclaimed superiority of the president whose legacy has been all but eliminated within the first two years of Trump's presidency.
"Wherein #Obama dismisses the value of every political figure he’s dealt with in the entire world in one minute and nineteen seconds. Amazing therefore that the 'world's smartest man' accomplished absolutely nothing in eight of the longest years in history," wrote Woods, in a tweet noted by Twitchy.
The video highlighted by Woods is a clip from Obama's conversation with author Dave Eggers at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago Tuesday, which includes the following truly "amazing" remarks by the former hopeful community organizer-turned-disappointed commander in chief:
"Here's the interesting thing that happens when you're president, or when you go through the experience of being president," says Obama, a comment his audience finds funny. "So you start off, you know, you're a community organizer, and you're struggling to get people to recognize each other's common interests. You know, you're trying to get some project done in a small community. You start thinking, 'Okay, you know what, this alderman's a knucklehead and they're resistant to doing the right thing, and so I need to get more knowledge, more power, more influence so I can really have an impact.' And so you go to the state legislature, and you look around and say, well, these jamokes, I mean they — not all of them, but I'm just saying you start getting that sense of 'This is just like dealing with that alderman, so I gotta do something different.'"
Having trashed basically everyone on the local and state level, Obama takes his disappointment with all the "jamokes" all the way to the top: "Then you go to the U.S. Senate, and you're looking around, and you're like, 'Ah man...' And then when you're president, you're sitting in these international meetings, and it's like the G20 and you've got all these world leaders. And it's the same people."
The Obama Foundation Summit audience loved it.
