WATCH: Newsmax Host Accuses Barack Obama of Trying to Start a Race War
There are a number of anchors on the Fox News network who are willingly to admit that Donald Trump lost the 2020 election. Of course, people like Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs and Maria Bartiromo are still in his corner. That isn’t enough for the president, though, who has urged his supporters to check out competitors like OAN or Newsmax.
And it’s not hard to see why the president may prefer those two networks. They not only air his legal team’s wild press conferences, they are willing to say almost anything to get into Trump’s good graces. This was clear today when Newsmax’s Chris Salcedo accused Barack Obama of trying to start a race war.
Salcedo began, “President Barack Hussein Obama has been pimping a book. Many of you won’t be surprised to learn that he remains every bit the liar he was when he occupied the Oval Office.”
The Newsmax host continued, “A war between the races, yet another reason to avoid Obama’s third term. That’s the reality check we provide in tonight’s preamble.”
Salcedo closed his rant:
“If you opposed high taxes — racist. If you wanted the law enforced equally, well, you’re a racist. If you demanded free speech and the right to disagree with any left winger on any matter — racist. Collectivist thought is so un-American that it can’t stand on its own here, That’s why reprobates like Obama weaponize race to force your compliance. Here he is keeping the race war that he started going by attacking Hispanics who voted for President Trump.”
