While speaking in Laos today during a visit to Asia, President Barack Obama insulted Americans again.
According to Breitbart, Obama revealed that he sees us, by in large, as "lazy" and ignorant to what's going on in the rest of the world.
Speaking to the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative, Obama said, “You know I believe that the United States is and can be a great force for good in the world, but because we are such a big country, we haven’t always had to know about other parts of the world. If you are in Laos, you need to know about Thailand and China and Cambodia because you are a small country and they are right next door and you need to know who they are. If you are in the United States, sometimes you can feel lazy and think, ‘You know, we are so big we don’t have to really know anything about other people.’ And that’s part of what I’m trying to change.”
It was definitely not the first time the president failed to show high regard for the nation he was elected to serve.
For instance, during a trip to Malaysia last November, Obama trashed America for its rampant income inequality and racism, according to the Washington Times.
He made similar remarks in Vietnam this year, according to U.S. News & World Report, this time blasting his own country for racial injustice in the criminal justice system and a large gender wage gap.
Obama also aid America "has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" during a speech in France, according to a transcript on WhiteHouse.gov.
America is not perfect — no country can ever be — but why does our president feel the need to trash our country abroad? How does it help us?
