Favorite Quotes: Obama Calling Out Trump's Love For Far-Right Extremists

"We are Americans. We're supposed to stand up to bullies. Not follow them. We're supposed to stand up to discrimination, and we're sure as heck supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to Nazi sympathizers. How hard can that be, to say that Nazis are bad?"

-Barack Obama

Former President Obama said these words not long ago ahead of the mid-term elections, calling Donald Trump out on his refusal to condemn far-right lunatics who committed violence and intimidation in Charlottesville, Virginia. Trump campaigned on racism, and constantly does racist things as President. Trump supporters shouldn't exactly be shocked on Trump's consistency of being a bigot. But it sure says a lot of about their own character when they can support such a man each and every day.

It's so disturbing that people just can't see what an immature bigot he is. I know Obama was trying to stay out of it, but he needed to say something sane in the craziness that is going on in our country.
