6/10/19 Jim Bovard on Obama’s Forgotten Frauds and Debacles

Jim Bovard reflects on the legacy of Barack Obama’s presidency in light of Donald Trump’s. Obama is garnering favorable comparisons now, explains Bovard, but we shouldn’t forget all of the horrible things he did, especially on civil liberties and foreign wars. The cycle of corruption and lies continues with President Trump, whose presidency will more than likely lead to the reactionary election of yet another charlatan.
