Former President Barack Obama pontificated during his speech attacking President Donald Trump on Friday, saying that America should not "wait for a savior," and America does not "need a Messiah."
"And speaking as a Democrat, that’s when the Democratic party has always made the biggest difference in the lives of the American people," Obama said. "When we led with conviction and principle and bold new ideas. The antidote to a government controlled by a powerful few, a government that divides is a government by the organized, energized, inclusive many."
"You cannot sit back and wait for a savior," Obama continued. "You can’t opt out because you don’t feel sufficiently inspired by this or that particular candidate. We don’t need a messiah. All we need are decent, honest, hard-working people who are accountable and who have America’s best interests at heart."
In February 2008, Michelle Obama praised her husband as being the "only person" who knew "that at some level there's a hole in our souls," claiming he could "fix our souls."
After Obama became president, schools had kids sing songs praising and worshipping him, which even left-leaning Politifact admits it true.
Even more disturbing was a video that circulated in 2008 that showed kids dressed up in Obama campaign gear singing his praises as a choir.
