Dyson: Trump Has ‘Tried to Retroactively Abort’ Obama ‘From the Womb of Democracy’

Monday on “CNN Tonight,” while discussing President Donald Trump’s tweets last weekend accusing the former Obama administration of wiretapping Trump Tower before the election, Georgetown University sociology professor Michael Eric Dyson said Trump has “tried to retroactively abort” former President Barack Obama “from the womb of democracy.”

Dyson said, “This is not what we expect of a leader, the most powerful man in the world, the inability to have deferred gratification or the discipline to impose on oneself, don’t say everything you think. A lot of people have thought crazy things, so Donald Trump is channeling what their inner ego, their inner self is about. But the problem is there are no facts to match what his suppositions are, and his assertions when he just spews this, he is just using Twitter as a means to display his paranoia, his presumptiveness and his obsession with Barack Obama. He can’t let him go.”

He added, “Here’s a man who made us believe that Barack Obama was the boogeyman. Here’s a man who spent years of his life trying to convince America this guy is illegitimate. He’s ill-informed, he’s ill-conceived, and he tried to retroactively abort him from the womb of democracy. Now, he’s calling him Richard Nixon. That’s the sheet calling the rice white. Here is a guy who is incapable of acknowledging that the paranoia is his own.”
