ON VIDEO: Barack Obama…Errr…Donald Trump Denounces the Idea of American Exceptionalism

In April of last year, Barack Obama spoke at a gathering of leftwing activists and was asked, “Define American exceptionalism. Does American exceptionalism still exist? And what do we do to grow American exceptionalism?”

As we all suspected, Obama loathes the term “American exceptionalism.” In fact, he said specifically,

I don’t want to say, “We’re exceptional. we’re more exceptional.” Because essentially we’re saying we’re more outstanding than you.

It was a rather rambling answer where he concluded, “Let’s not rub it in. But I never liked that term.”

You can see the video for yourself right here. Just note that it is not actually Barack Obama who said these things. It was Donald Trump.

Oh, so now you agree, huh?
