President Barack Obama told the black community that he would be deeply offended if they don’t vote for their party nominee, Hillary Clinton.
The New York Times reports that on Saturday, Obama was speaking at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s dinner event and appeared visibly agitated and emotional that some Democrats were less than enthused about the upcoming election.
“My name may not be on the ballot, but our progress is on the ballot,” Obama said. “Tolerance is on the ballot. Democracy is on the ballot. Justice is on the ballot.”
Clinton would continue these leftist agenda items, while GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump wouldn’t, said Obama. Then he made it clear that his precious snowflake feelings mattered above all else.
“After all we have achieved historic turnout in 2008 and 2012, especially in the black community, I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election,” Obama whined. “You want to give me a good send-off? Go vote.”
Obama’s call to action caused leftists to swoon like teenage girls at a Justin Bieber concert. Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile praised the speech as going “beyond the movement.” Race huckster Al Sharpton declared the “insult” call as “a shot in the arm” to Clinton’s campaign.
Naturally, Clinton herself also loved it:

However, Obama’s message may not have been as effective as Brazile and Sharpton thought:
Absolutely hate this framing of the necessity of voting (for Democrats) that places all the blame on marginalized and young folks.

It can’t be coincidental that Obama whining about his feelings comes as a Friday poll shows Trump with a nearly 17-point increase among black voters in a week’s time, with Hillary facing a similar collapse. But the fact that Obama would actually be personally “insulted” by a lack of voter turnout in the black community is further evidence of his narcissism.
Columnist Charles Krauthammer, who used to work in the field of psychiatry, told radio host Hugh Hewitt in 2014 that Obama meets all the classic signs of narcissism.
“This is a guy, you look at every one of his speeches, even the way he introduces high officials — I’d like to introduce my secretary of state. He once referred to ‘my intelligence community.’ And in one speech, I no longer remember it, ‘my military,'” Krauthammer said. “For God’s sake, he talks like the emperor, Napoleon.”
“He does have this sense of this all being a drama about him, and everybody else is just sort of part of the stage.”
Obama considering a non-vote for Clinton as a “personal insult” further validates Krauthammer’s argument.
Additionally, Obama’s insinuation that Clinton would continue his legacy proves that Clinton would be a third-term of Obama, a continuation of the far-left, divisive tactics and policies of Saul Alinsky.
Obama’s overt angst in that speech is a reflection of the Democrats’ fear that Clinton is a weak enough candidate to lose this election, so Obama channeled his inner social justice warrior to give her a boost.
