Why Does Obama Want Republicans to Renounce Trump?

Barack Obama said many nice things about Republicans to get them to renounce Trump. Why?

The media wants us to believe that Obama is encouraging Republicans to renounce Trump for their own good. Thus, The Uptake’s headline: “Obama Says Republicans Should Withdraw Support for Trump.” Here’s the video:

And the question I think that they have to ask themselves is, if you are repeatedly having to say in very strong terms that what he has said is unacceptable, why are you still endorsing him? What does this say about your party that this is your standard bearer? This isn’t a situation where you have an episodic gaffe. This is daily, and weekly, where they are distancing themselves from statements he’s making. There has to be a point in which you say, this is not somebody I can support for President of the United States, even if he purports to be a member of my party.

And the fact that that has not yet happened makes some of these denunciations ring hollow. I don’t doubt their sincerity. I don’t doubt that they were outraged about some of the statements that Mr. Trump and his supporters made about the Khan family. But there has to come a point at which you say somebody who makes those kinds of statements doesn’t have the judgment, the temperament, the understanding to occupy the most powerful position in the world.

This is amazing. Barack Obama is calling on Republicans to give the presidency to Hillary. Not only that, a betrayal of Donald Trump would drive Republican voters away from the voting booth so both the House and Senate would be jeopardized as well.

I don’t blame Barack Obama for attempting such an outrageous plan to get Democrat victories, but I’m amazed he is taken seriously by the media. They treat this campaign strategy as if it is serious advice meant for the good of the Republican Party.

How much do you think Barack Obama cares about the good of the GOP?

If Barack Obama really thought Republicans were hurting themselves, he wouldn’t be pressuring them to betray him. The conclusion is inescapable: Barack Obama fears that Donald Trump can win.
