Is there truth to this? Piers Morgan speaks!!
That Barack Obama’s a lovely guy, right?
Handsome, intelligent, eloquent, charming, witty; he can sing, dance, shoot hoops, and make speeches that stir the soul.
Oh, and he’s a great husband, father, son and friend.
In fact, to many around the world, President Perfect is the complete antithesis of his replacement Donald Trump.
That’s why millions have marched to protest against the current POTUS, who they brand the ‘new Hitler.’Why, they squeal with rage, can’t ‘Monster’ Trump just be more like ‘Saint’ Obama?
Forgive me if I don’t join the ecstatic global race to canonize Mr Obama quite so enthusiastically.
For beneath his ever-smiley beatific halo lies a rather different, far murkier reality.
My favourite question for the anti-Trump brigade is this: ‘How many people did Barack Obama deport from America during his eight years as President?’ Most people guess 5,000, maybe 10,000. Even those with a good knowledge of how the real world of US immigration policy works rarely respond with a number higher than around 500,000.
In fact, Obama deported nearly THREE MILLION people.
That is the most deported by any president, ever.
His appalled critics even dubbed him ‘Deporter-in-Chief.’ When challenged, Obama loved to pretend that he was only deporting ‘criminals’. The truth is very different. Over half of all immigrants deported under Obama had no criminal convictions. Many others were slung out for minor offences involving traffic violations or marijuana possession.
