In a recent interview, former President Barack Obama admitted that he wasn’t surprised President Trump was able to gain momentum among voters, however he had no idea that he would become the symbol for right-wing populism.
According to Yahoo News, “I will say that I’m not surprised that somebody like Trump could get traction in our political life,” Obama told The Atlantic. “He’s a symptom as much as an accelerant. But if we were going to have a right-wing populist in this country, I would have expected somebody a little more appealing.”
“If you think about populists from the past, someone like Huey Long — he wasn’t from the right; he was a classic populist, rooted in the earth; he knows the lives of the people he is rallying; he genuinely understands them. I guess I would not have expected someone who has complete disdain for ordinary people to be able to get attention and then the following from those very same people.”
Obama then suggested that rather than being a “classic male hero” like John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart and Clint Eastwood; President Trump was less like them and more like the fictional character Richie Rich.
