Cowherd: Trump’s Rise Similar to Obama’s in 2008

On the Wednesday broadcast of “The Herd” on Fox Sports 1, host Colin Cowherd compared GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s rise to President Barack Obama’s 2008 rise.

Cowherd first compared Obama running on “hope” to Trump running on the “wall,” both of which he said are not “real” strategies.

“I watch how flummoxed the left is with Trump and it sounds like my conservative friends with Obama eight years ago, ‘I don’t get it. I don’t understand it,'” he said. “At the time, liberals were mad at the Bush years. They were pissed and Obama was their missile to beat the conservatives. Now, conservatives are pissed. For eight years Obama has owned 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and Trump is their missile head first into the Democrats.”

“I tell you, when you sit in the middle, and I’m a financial conservative and a social liberal, when you sit in the middle and hear both groups eight years separated separated, it is largely the same movement,” Cowherd added.
