Barack Obama slams Republicans as xenophobic and paranoid in his forthcoming memoir, which focuses on his first term in the White House.

In the 768-page tome, entitled 'A Promised Land' and out on November 17, Obama reflects on his political career but divulges in the personal, admitting life in the White House increased his smoking habit and caused tension in his marriage with Michelle.

He also speaks to race relations in the United States, writing it was his own historic election as the nation's fist black president that sparked some of the current division in the country.

'It was as if my very presence in the White House had triggered a deep-seated panic, a sense that the natural order had been disrupted,' Obama writes in the book, which was obtained by CNN.

Donald Trump, he claims, sensed the country's mood and took advantage of it to win the White House in the 2016 election.

'Which is exactly what Donald Trump understood when he started peddling assertions that I had not been born in the United States and was thus an illegitimate president. For millions of Americans spooked by a Black man in the White House, he promised an elixir for their racial anxiety,' he writes.

  • Poor baby, all a figment of his own cry baby mind

  • Those that talk about racist they are the racist. They just don't want to accept the truth President Trump did more for the back Americans than anyone else. The Democrats only want the African American as slaves just to depend on them 

  • You are a legend in your own mind, 0bama, and  your "racist" card has been worn to a frazzle . If you had been a black AMERICAN , instead of a black supporter of Sharia law , and those people yelling they were going to kill us while you kept placing them in positions of power within our government,  not to mention your puny knowledge of the US, - remember YOU incorrectly  stated you 'had visited 57 states and had a few to go...'We didn't disapprove of your color- we disapproved of YOU - ESPECIALLY since YOU were a graduate of Harvard -  because  YOU  couldn't even remember how many states there are in this country.  Either YOU are incredibly stupid, or YOU are brain-damaged. Too many blunts over the years, Barack?  Words like "zenophobic" ,actually ALL those "phobic" words, slip right off you tongue like silk, but you can't remember 50 states ???

  • You better believe the worst 'president' ever.  But a great world community organizer/instigator/agitator!

    • if he was great why than did he give the poor just a phone to use?


    • To start his socialist agenda?

  • Obama was the worst president in my whole intire life.

  • NO FOOL, Trump's rise was entirely due to the American citizen's disgust with a far-left Marxist communist in the white house. Couple that with many of us having a full understanding of the constitutional requirements for the office of president which you did not meet. 

  • Barry is a deluded person. A lot of white people had a hand in helping him get elected. I was one of those dummies when I was an independant. I wasn't racist. I fell for his BS like a lot of people, and I thought it was a good thing that a black man was president, because for one thing it would help race relations once and for all. I was optimistic about it all. But it didn't take me long to see that I was duped by a very good actor. His first term turned out to be a disappointment, and I coudn't imagine how we'd make it through another term with him as president. He was and still is very obsessed with the fact that he's black. In almost all of his speeches he had to insert the race card. We wanted to just see him as a man but he forced us to see him as a black man. He's the one who has the problem with his skin color. But of course he blames everyone else. He never admitted being to blame for anything. This BS about Trump being the blame for the racism is total fiction. He's the one who caused that. I think he's ashamed of his parentage, and if so that's nobody's fault. He needs to get over it. As to the birtherism, if there's nothing to it why does he keep bringing it up? He passed up a chance to be a good president and do good for our country. But he spoiled it by being corrupt and taking advantage of his status. This is enough to cause people to not want to trust another black man. So he ruined it for his  race. The black people look up to him and are proud because he had the honor of being the first black president, but that's the only reason. If he had more integrity that would had really been something to be proud about. In my opinion he's a damaged person because the chip on his shoulder has affected his brain.

    • Hello Jane ... be careful ... "this is enough to cause people to not want to trust another black man". Obama is and was clearly a bad apple ... BUT Shelby Steele and Tom Sowell are good guys. We need to be careful not to play into the Left's hands ... their next move is to "purge" all of their enemies (like us). They will try hard to conflate our anti Obama into anti black. I hope this is clear.
