The deep malice of team Obama

Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in the presidential election of 2016 has given us a temporary reprieve from the sophisticated and destructive operators of the Obama administration. Faithfully reflecting Obama, they combined malice, stupidity and self-regard in roughly equal measure in the discharge of their responsibilities. I offer recent comments from former members of the Obama administration as Exhibits A, B, and C.

Exhibit A: Former Obama senior advisor Dan Pfeiffer dreams of happier days ahead.

Exhibit B: Inspired by Pfeiffer, former Obama deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes shares his dreams of happier days.

Exhibit C: Former CIA Director John Brennan comments on President Trump’s threat to use foreign aid to advance the American national interest. I won’t even try to explain Brennan’s train of thought. I don’t understand it. I will only say that it seems to me both to channel Obama and to represent a pure case of projection.
