Barack Obama made his way to the west coast to campaign for multiple Democrat candidates across the Golden State.
Many people would have called 44’s anti-Trump speech in Anaheim a rousing success, but a devastating truth was just learned that puts that notion to bed.
The problem is that Obama wasn’t speaking before an arena-sized crowd of people.
In fact, Democrats running for office hoping Barack’s presence will give them a bump in the polls should be very worried.
From Think Progress:
ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA — Former President Obama made his first campaign stop of the midterm elections in Orange County, California Saturday to stump for seven Democratic House candidates running in districts currently held by Republicans but that Hillary Clinton won in 2016.
About 750 people attended the event at Anaheim Convention Center, where Obama delivered a short speech centered on unity and the “politics of hope.” And, after a story about getting kicked out of Disneyland when he was caught smoking in the Magic Kingdom after a concert as a teenager, Obama issued an impassioned critique of Trump and the state of American democracy and encouraged the crowd to back the candidates he came to support.

Only 750 people showed up? Worrisome.
Funny, they show the single line waiting for entry into the Obama Comedy tour but will NEVER show the crowds at President Trump's Rally's, this is in California, home of the illegal sanctuary network created by Obama, maybe the illegals wanted to say, Mi casa es tu casa, Gracias!

In Illinois the day before, Obama refused to refer to Donald Trump as “president.”
He also labeled Benghazi, in which four Americans lost their lives during an attack by Islamic extremists, a “wild conspiracy theory.”
Back in Anaheim, Barack claimed he promoted politics of hope while Trump exploits politics of fear.
From Gateway Pundit:
Obama told the crowd he promoted politics of hope and Trump exploits politics of fear.
