In a recent interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice trashed President Trump for being “threatened by” Barack Obama.
According to Breitbart, Lemon asked, “Why do you think he likes to make the former president the scapegoat and blame the former president and your administration on—for everything, really. Why is that?”
Rice replied, “I can only assume and infer that President Trump has some extraordinary insecurity in relation to Barack Obama. Everything that Obama stood for, decency, family values, unity, a country that stood tall and proud, not by dividing but by uniting, is the antithesis of who Donald Trump is. And he’s clearly threatened by it. And he clearly likes to use Obama as a foil for all of these failures.”
Adding, “But, you know, there is no covering up from the fact that this administration was not ready, wasn’t ready with the testing, wasn’t ready with the equipment, wasn’t ready with the orders to shut down the economy when that was necessary. And they’re making even bigger mistakes today as they give the governors and localities carte blanche to do whatever they want to do. He takes no responsibility. I mean, this is the thing, Don. Donald Trump says he takes no responsibility at all for anything. So you got to, therefore, blame somebody. If it’s not Obama, it’s China, the World Health organization or whomever, but the pattern is the same, it’s never his responsibility, even three-and-a-half years into his presidency.”
