Obama gives secret speech at MIT and brags about leaving office without major ’embarrassing’ scandal
Who does he think he’s kidding?
Former President Barack Obama gave a secret speech at an MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference about sports policy last week and had a few peculiar things to say.
In fact, they were so bizarre, Reason.com put together a list of his top five statements.
Although his comments to the room were supposed to be kept a secret and completely off the record, a piece of audio leaked which was the biggest news of all. To listen to this full audio, click here and scroll to the bottom.
Here are the top 5 things that were off about Obama’s speech to the crowd, according to Reason:
- Obama thinks Google, Facebook, etc., are ‘a public good as well as a commercial enterprise,’ and should consider whether they are corroding our democracy.
- It’s okay to argue about how we should address climate change. It’s not okay to deny the underlying science.
- Obama really likes basketball—and he’d like it more if the NBA had a junior league.
- Diversity isn’t about ‘charity or political correctness, it’s just common sense.’ And it’s why his White House was scandal-free, according to the president.
- Obama thinks the stereotype about lazy government employees is wrong.
