As the country’s first black president, Barack Obama had to deal with issues not faced by his predecessors. Many of these issues had to do with race.
Most famously, Donald Trump created the birther movement. The then businessman, in the face of insurmountable evidence, claimed that Obama was actually born in Kenya. The Tea Party, an opposition to Obama’s presidency, was also fueled by racial resentment.
Greg Kelly would, however, would like to rewrite the history of the last decade and a half. According to the Newsmax host, white people were very good to Obama and he should give them more credit.
Kelly was particularly incensed about Obama and Bruce Springsteen’s discussion on race. Kelly referred to it as a “shame on America tour.”
The Newsmax host continued by saying of Obama, “At any moment he throws around the race card, and I’m really surprised, because quite frankly, forgive me, white people have been very very good to Barack Obama, but he seems to resent the hell out of it.”
