CLASH POLL: Are Obama & Merkel This Millennium’s SUCKIEST Leaders So Far?

Written by K. Walker on May 25, 2017

There have been some pretty bad leaders in the past few years… are these two at the top of the crap heap?

Obama and Merkel were in Berlin in front of the Brandenburg Gate commemorating the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

And Barry took the opportunity to criticize Trump for the southern border wall.

If you’ve forgotten how much of a douche this guy was, here’s a refresher:

After lauding Merkel as someone who had done ‘outstanding work,’ Obama launched a defense of his own presidency and the values of liberal democracy championed by both leaders.

Citing the rise of nationalism and xenophobia in parts of the world, Obama told the crowd that ‘we have to push back against those trends that would violate human rights or suppress democracy or restrict individual freedoms.’

In a veiled reference to his successor Donald Trump, Obama also spoke of the need to see development aid and diplomacy as essential aspects of national security policy.

‘We can’t isolate ourselves. We can’t hide behind a wall,’ he said, to cheers from the audience.

Merkel, who has taken political heat for her open door policy on refugees, including from Trump who called it a ‘catastrophic mistake,’ got reassurance from Obama.

‘In the eyes of God, a child on the other side of the border is no less worthy of love and compassion than my own child,’ Obama said. ‘You can’t distinguish between them in terms of their worth or inherent dignity.’

Interesting that Obama feels that way about borders, but doesn’t feel that way about children in the womb. Those are disposable. Even in the ‘Fourth’ Trimester. After all, he wouldn’t want his daughters ‘punished with a baby’.

But I digress…

Yes, he told Merkel that she was doing a good job.

Merkel, the one who has shifted the demographics of Germany with her pro-refugee stance.

And it’s just been rampant crime, no-go zones, and rape.

Great work, there, Merkel!

Why should these two be considered the suckiest leaders of the Millennium so far?

Partly because they think they’re doing a good job.

ClashDaily has reported on Obama’s many failings many times.

Merkel’s immigration policy has put her own citizens at risk.

The good news is that they didn’t destroy their respective countries half as much as they would have liked.

They weren’t even successful at sucking.
