Barack Obama is one skilled man when it comes to rhetoric.
“It all sounds right, and he looks good, and the suit fits,” Dave Rubin says in response to a recent lecture the former president gave on CNN.
But upon closer examination, there’s some incongruity.
“Our democracy is not going to be healthy,” Obama says, “with the levels of inequality that we’ve seen … obscene inequality.”
“It’s very hard to sustain a democracy when you have such massive concentrations of wealth,” he continues.
“On first glance, it all sort of makes sense,” Rubin says. But “of course … you just have to peel that thin veneer, and you can see the nonsense.”
Firstly, it’s important to note that Barack Obama “was a community organizer before he was a senator and then president and somehow is now worth, like, hundreds of millions of dollars,” Rubin explains.
Add to that the fact that he owns a 30-acre estate in Martha’s Vineyard that costs $11.75 million.
Obscene inequality indeed.
