Could it be that former presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump actually agree about an issue (see video below) that many Americans – especially social conservatives – believe is changing the culture of America for the worse?
“Former President Obama in an interview that aired Monday warned against what he characterized as “the dangers of cancel culture” going too far in American society,” according to The Hill.
“‘A lot of the dangers of cancel culture and ‘we’re just going to be condemning people all the time,’ at least among my daughters, they’ll acknowledge that among their peer group or in college campuses, you’ll see people going overboard,’ Obama said during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. [emphasis added]
“Obama said his daughters, Malia and Sasha, have a ‘pretty good sense of: look we don’t expect everybody to be perfect we don’t expect everybody to politically correct all the time.’
“‘But we are gonna call out institutions or individuals if they are being cruel, if they are, ya know, discriminating against people,’ Obama said. ‘We do want to raise awareness.’
“Obama has in the past criticized what he in 2019 called “woke” culture that leaves little room for forgiveness for misdeeds of people in public life.”
