Obama: Americans are too 'confused, blind, shrouded with hate' to save ourselves from climate change

During a summit Monday for the Obama Foundation in Chicago, former President Barack Obama trashed the Trump administration and Americans as a whole for not investing in efforts to solve climate change.

"Climate change, we're going to have to come up with some new technologies to solve the problem as much as we need to," Obama said. "Although even on something like that, right now I could take off the shelf existing technologies, we could reduce carbon emissions by, let's say 30 percent, without any, you know, it's not like we would have to go back to caves and, you know, live off, you know, fire. We could have electricity and smartphones and all that stuff, which would buy us probably another 20, 30 years for that technological breakthrough that's necessary."

"The reason we don't do it is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism, mommy issues," he added. "I mean ... we are fraught with stuff.”

On Wednesday’s episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere, who are filling in for Glenn this week, reacted to Obama's bizarre assertion that climate change is in any way connected to racism and hate.

"The reason we don't do it is we're fraught with hate, anger and mommy issues? What the hell are you talking about?" Pat asked.

"And racism?" Stu added. "Are we racists against green? This is so strange and it's such an easy explanation for every issue that progressives don't get what they want."
