Is Obama just an attention seeker?
On Tuesday, Former President Barack Obama was criticized for his recent interview in which he expressed concern about the “divided media” keeping him awake at night.
According to Fox, on “Jesse Watters Primetime,” Jesse Watters claimed that Obama made those comments about the “divided media” keeping him up at night on “CBS Mornings” due to a lack of attention. When Obama was asked about what concerns him, he made those remarks.
During his interview, Obama stated, “The thing that I’m most worried about is the degree to which we’ve now had a divided conversation, in part because we have a divided media. When I was coming up, you had three TV stations. And people were getting a similar sense of what is true and what isn’t, what was real and what was not. Today, what I’m most concerned about is the fact that because of the splintering of the media, we almost occupy different realities. Now, people will say, ‘Well, that didn’t happen, or I don’t believe that.'”
During his show, Watters humiliated former President Obama for his response during a recent interview on “CBS Mornings.” Watters sarcastically commented that instead of worrying about serious issues such as China, fentanyl, or “dirty nukes,” Obama claimed a “divided media” keeps him up at night.
“But seriously, Barack Obama can’t sleep at night because he doesn’t control every single media outlet? He’s mad the CIA can’t spoon-feed lies to the three big networks anymore? Obama’s not getting his beauty rest because the American voters actually have access to more information?” Watters said.
Kellyanne Conway stated that Obama’s comments were reflected in the 2022 campaign cycle where he was brought out as a prominent figure. Conway noted that Obama’s message of “hope and change” had transformed into “moan and groan,” and criticized his campaigning efforts as hypocritical, with Obama scolding and shaming his audience.
Watters also brought up Obama’s past criticism of Fox News, and Conway suggested that Obama is concerned about his legacy and regrets choosing Joe Biden as his running mate.
