Obama Admits ‘Democrats Can Be Buzzkills’

'I used to get into trouble whenever, as you guys know well, whenever I got a little too professorial... '

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Former President Barack Obama acknowledged in a recent interview that his fellow party members can be “buzzkills” who make people walk on eggshells due to their willingness to cancel people for arbitrary reasons, the Daily Mail reported.

According to the former president, cancel culture is good, but just a bit too rigid. In his view, people just need to relax a bit.

“Sometimes Democrats are [buzzkills],” Obama told his former employees on the Pod Save America podcast. “Sometimes people just want to not feel as if they are walking on eggshells, and they want some acknowledgment that life is messy and that all of us, at any given moment, can say things the wrong way, make mistakes.”

Obama also noted that he made mistakes as president, though he did not mention disasters like the Affordable Care Act or the Syrian disaster.

In his view, his only error was in lecturing the American people too much about policy issues when he should have been rallying crowds.

“I used to get into trouble whenever, as you guys know well, whenever I got a little too professorial and, you know, started … when I was behind the podium as opposed to when I was in a crowd, there were times where I’d get, you know, sound like I was giving a bunch of policy gobbledygook.”

But according to the former president, people do not think about actual policies. They just want to be comforted.

“That’s not how people think about these issues. They think about them in terms of the life I’m leading day to day. How does politics, how is it even relevant to the things that I care the most deeply about?”

Of course, Obama is often the first to jump on board when the cancel culture train gets rolling.

Last month, for example, Obama claimed that wanting a secure southern border is a form of racism–the great American sin.
