Americans elected the half-black Obama twice as president, in 2008 and 2012. As President and First Lady of the United States, respectively, Barack and Michelle are the most photographed and most powerful couple not just in America, but in the world.

And yet they would have us believe they are still recipients of racism, being treated as “dumb n*ggers.”

In an interview for People magazine, Mooch claims to have been mistaken for a sales clerk when, on Sept. 29, 2011, she made a supposedly impromptu and incognito shopping trip to a Target store in Alexandria, VA.

Michelle shops in Target 9-29-2011

She told People:

“even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn’t anything new.”

For his part, Barack claims he’s been mistaken for a parking valet:

“There’s no black male my age, who’s a professional, who hasn’t come out of a restaurant and is waiting for their car and somebody didn’t hand them their car keys.”

Mooch chimes in, adding that her husband has been mistaken for a waiter:

“He was wearing a tuxedo at a black-tie dinner, and somebody asked him to get coffee.”

Then Obama delivers the last punch:

“It’s one thing for me to be mistaken for a waiter at a gala. It’s another thing for my son to be mistaken for a robber and to be handcuffed….”

BooHoo. Poor me.

How did this man ever get elected president TWICE by those racist Americans?

I don’t believe a word of it.

To quote black Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. in a Fox News interview on Dec. 11, 2014:

“The President of the United States said the other day that it [racism] is deep-rooted, and that’s simply not true…. He built this racial divide. It was a wound that had been healing for a number of years, a number of decades…and he reopened it with his divisive politics. Look, President Obama has benefited from the ‘divide and conquer strategy’ and it secured two successive electoral victories for the White House, but it’s been very destructive for America…. He’s taken sides in these issues, he’s fanned those flames…. He said the other day that he blamed bad training and this fear of ‘people who don’t look like them’ when he was referring to the police. I thought that was disgusting…. We have to begin to ask when white society is going to be through paying for the sins of slavery. We’re now punishing people for sins that they didn’t commit.”
