Prior to the midterm elections, former President Barack Obama criticized the Democratic Party, telling “woke” Democrats that their cancel culture makes people feel like they are “walking on eggshells.”
During an interview for the podcast Pod Save America, Obama made the comments.
Some Democrats, he said, are “buzzkills,” and some members of his party need to down the heat and accept that everyone makes errors.
“Sometimes Democrats are buzzkills.”
“Sometimes people just want to not feel as if they are walking on eggshells, and they want some acknowledgment that life is messy and that all of us, at any given moment, can say things the wrong way, make mistakes.”
“I used to get into trouble whenever, as you guys know well, whenever I got a little too professorial and, you know, started when I was behind the podium as opposed to when I was in a crowd, there were times where I’d get, you know, sound like I was giving a bunch of policy gobbledygook.”
“That’s not how people think about these issues.”
“They think about them in terms of the life I’m leading day to day.”
“How does politics, how is it even relevant to the things that I care the most deeply about?”
Obama continued by criticizing President Donald Trump.
