Former President Obama infuriated Virginia parents while campaigning for Democrat Gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe when he claimed they were engaging in “phony culture wars.”
During a campaign stop in Richmond, Obama claimed Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin and conservative media are waging “phony” culture wars.
Obama’s remarks came shortly after it was revealed a girl was raped at a Loudoun County school by a “gender fluid” boy wearing a skirt. The boy was then quietly moved to another school, where he allegedly assaulted another student. The Loudoun County school board, which has been pushing transgender policies onto children and parents, knew about the situation and covered it up.
To say the least, Obama’s remarks were unwelcome, out-of-touch and quickly refuted.
My kids’ schools were shut down for a year. A girl was raped in a bathroom in Loudon County. Terry McAuliffe said I shouldn’t have a say in my child’s education. Not one of those things is “phony” or “trumped up.” https://t.co/4qasFYoi91

The President who forced nuns to pay for birth control has some thoughts on the “phony” culture wars https://t.co/Ako1RH05hC

Incredibly disappointed that a former president would send this message in light of such a serious and egregious situation in Loudoun County. Parents have every right to be outraged over what happened, as we should be. https://t.co/4PeRYOykxs

What is phony exactly? The school rape coverup or Terry McAuliffe saying parents shouldn’t be involved in their child’s education?
Shameless gaslighting to prop up a candidate the left knows is in serious trouble.
Get out and vote Virginia! https://t.co/WMgzQNCOVt
