When they go low, you lie like crazy.
“When we were in the White House, we could’ve never gotten away with some of the stuff that’s going on now, not because of the public, but our community wouldn’t have accepted that. You worked, you did your best every day. You showed up,” Obama said.
You showed up.
That’s what Barack Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize for. He showed up. Nothing else.
What “best” did Michelle Obama, or for that matter, Barry, bring to the White House? What wouldn’t her community have accepted? What did she even do beyond ruin school lunches and accept a bunch of awards for just showing up.
But sure. Good thing that Obama couldn’t have gotten away with illegally shipping a fortune to terrorists in unmarked pallets full of foreign currency, eavesdropping on his political opponents, and setting off race riots across the country.
“The notion that people are out there wondering about these protests,” Obama said, “it’s like, do you know how much it takes, that it takes to get up everyday, and be accused of being less than what you are?”
I understand that getting out of bed every day is tough when you’re a millionaire celebrity with a Netflix deal who contributes nothing to society.
Olivia Troye Was Brought Into the Gov Under Obama
The media is spinning Olivia Troye as a “courageous” Pence aide who just felt she had to speak out against President Trump.
While Troye did work as a homeland security advisor for Pence, she actually got back into the government under Obama.
After working for the DOD during the Bush era, she stayed on and became an DNI adviser extending into the Obama era, exited to work for the Chamber of Commerce, then did the usual Booz Allen Hamilton stint, before diving into the DIA in 2013.
By 2015, she was a senior advisor to the director of intelligence at the DOE. From Nov 2016, she had a major job at DHS, and only in 2018, did she become a Pence adviser.
Troye probably has Republican connections, but she also seemed to be very comfortable networking and working during the Obama era. And the media is avoiding that subject because they want to spin her a Trump, or at least Pence, loyalist who decided to speak out because her conscience was bothering her. The bio though is that of an industry insider. Which isn’t particularly surprising. The swamp is big and vast. And it is D.C.’s biggest employer. Directly and indirectly.
What’s Troye doing these days?
Well before this she became the National Insurance Crime Bureau’s Vice President of Strategy, Policy, & Plans under a guy whom President Trump allegedly wanted fired.
