Former U.S. President, and likely our current shadow president, Barack Obama delivered a speech reeking of hypocrisy on Thursday when he addressed a Stanford University crowd.
Speaking about digital disinformation, Obama compared Putin to Hitler, claimed President Trump “incited a violent insurrection” on January 6th, and shared several other inaccurate claims.
“Disinformation is a threat to our democracy, and will continue to be unless we work together to address it,” he wrote on Twitter. “Tune in as I share some thoughts on what we can all do now.”

Arrogantly disregarding the irony, Obama spoke alongside several known disinformation peddlers such as his former aide Ben Rhodes, president of the civil rights group Color of Change Rashad Robinson and Stanford researcher Renee DiResta.
Barack criticized Trump and other GOP politicians who have continued to question the blatantly faulty 2020 presidential election as people who are trying to “overturn the will of the people.”
