Obama concerned that Americans ‘almost occupy different realities’

Barack Obama is a prime example of a generation of politicians that played the “everything goes” game. Before the end of the Cold War, nuclear annihilation kept a lid on those tendencies as there was wide agreement that an adversary needs to be dealt with before all else. But when the Soviet Union stepped off the scene, the West felt free to engage in stupid experiments on many levels. Not what works was important anymore but what felt good. Obama made Trump and it was under his presidency when most Americans finally understood that the elites care about nothing but themselves. I think they are afraid because they can finally see their fortunes wane.
