Obama Privately Warns Top Dem Donors: Trump Voters ‘Glued’ to Breitbart, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh

Former President Barack Obama is privately telling some of the biggest and most influential donors on the left that the 2020 election will not be a lock for former Vice President Joe Biden because President Donald Trump’s voters are “glued” to outlets on the right like Breitbart News and will turn out in droves in November, according to a Thursday report in the New York Times.

Obama has reportedly raised $24 million for Biden in two months by having conversations with people like LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman, actor George Clooney, and top party leaders. According to the Times, “donors who have paid six-figure sums” have been able to see Obama have these “wide-ranging Q. and A. sessions about the state of politics and unvarnished analysis” on Zoom.

In these private conversations, Obama—who has acknowledged that Breitbart News changed the “entire media narrative” in a “powerful direction”—reportedly has said that he is worried that Trump has a base of supporters who do not get their news and information from establishment media outlets. Obama reportedly believes that because establishment media outlets cannot reach some of Trump’s voters, the president’s supporters can filter “out any contradictory information” by getting their news from Breitbart News, Fox News, and Rush Limbaugh.

“It’s just glued to Fox News and Breitbart and Limbaugh and just this conservative echo chamber — and so, they’re going to turn out to vote,” Obama reportedly said in a conversation with Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker (D). “What he has unleashed and what he continues to try to tap into is the fears and anger and resentment of people who, in some cases, really are having a tough time and have seen their prospects, or communities where they left, declining. And Trump tries to tap into that and redirect in nativist, racist, sexist ways.”

Obama reportedly also views Trump as an existential threat to American democracy, “even making an oblique reference to Nazi Germany” during one of the conversations,” according to the Times.

“The endpoint of that we saw in Europe 60 years ago, 70 years ago — what happens when those things get unleashed,” Obama reportedly said during one of the conversations. “You don’t nip that in the bud, bad things can happen. Among the most quote unquote civilized societies.”

The former president has reportedly been adamant that donors and activists do not take the 2020 presidential election for granted or underestimate Trump and his supporters.

“We already saw this guy win once,” Obama reportedly said. “After he bragged about physically assaulting women — and that didn’t seem to matter. So, enough said. Let’s get to work.”

Anybody who voted for Trump in 2016 will vote for him in 2020, for the same reasons. Aside from the Gorsuch SCOTUS disaster, they have no reason not to. 2020 is 2016. Biden is Hellary. 1968 is 2020. Nixon is Trump. Humphrey is Biden. I mean Chicago's 1968 Democrat Party riots are Portland's 2020 riots by the armed wing of the Marxist Democtats..Trump will crush Biden plus ? UNLESS GOGGLE, FACEBOOK, TWITTER ETC STEAL THE ELECTION WHICH THEY ARE NOW DOING OPENLY.

Who was it that said "If you want rats exterminated you hire the best rat exterminator you can find. You don't care if he swears, stinks of body odor, has gross tattoos, or insults your wife and daughter - as long as he gets rid of rats."

Methinks America is at that point.

And the rats need to be got.

I have not watched broadcast news in years and I stopped listening to to CNN right after 9/11 and there is nothing but bullshit on msnbc. And for that matter I only have the tv on Fox at night, I check Fox business to see where the stock market is headed as an indicator of the money world. I like Lou Dobbs on Fox B. Mostly I have my tv on on OAN during the day, but its not on all that much anymore. Too much crapola. I catch the news on Citizen Free Press and Free Republic. I mainly just skim the headlines. I do like reruns of NCIS and I ignore the politics of the actors in all three of the shows. And there is a channel that has british murder mysteries, although I think some are from Canada and Australia.

Even the most of the youtube videos that I usually like are filled with crap.

God is good, all the time

He did that to get them to go after them. He knows that if he can get them gone ... the demonrats will control all the narrative... every day ... 24/7. There’s only a handful. And Rush might not be around very long.

Obama said Trump physically assaults women ( no proof). But then Obama supports Joe Biden. You can actually see his physical assaults through his career, even on little girls. Obama the consummate bullshitter traitor in chief.

Trump must expose this man before his term is done. They’ve manipulated us for far too long

Obama is wrong. I've been listening to Rush Limbaugh for 30 years. I'm conservative and did not and will not vote for Trump. I'm disappointed in Rush nowadays however. In his declining days Rush has besmirched his legacy by becoming Trump's propagandist.
Strawman much?

Hillary was the alternative...you aren't conservative.

What does Rush put out that you consider propaganda?

As long as he makes it to November. After 2024, it wouldn’t matter anyway. There will never be another populist/nationalist allowed to occupy the office.

I'm conservative
If you can support Communism in this country, you sir are no conservative. Whatever the hell you might be, “conservative” isn’t what I’d call you.

Question.

I thought NO ONE could contribute more than $5000 to a political candidate.


So HOW does OBAMA get “donors who have paid six-figure sums” to Biden--and that's ok?

BJ has been here since this post but hasn't responded to an honest question.

A pattern that reminds me of FJ.
