President Obama is the “most racist president there has ever been in America,” according to American political and economic commentator Ben Stein.
The economist and actor appeared on Fox News’ America News Headquarters on Sunday to discuss Obama’s domestic economic policies, which Stein says are racially dividing America.
“This president is the most racist president there has ever been in America,” Stein said to Fox’s Shannon Bream. “He is purposely trying to use race to divide Americans.”
He also pointed out that the number of Americans on welfare has vastly increased during Obama’s presidency and that the cuts to welfare programs have been miniscule despite claims by Democrats that the cuts, spearheaded by Republicans, are hurting minorities.
“More people are on food stamps than ever,” Stein said. “More people are getting welfare than ever.”
“What cuts are they talking about?”
“More people are getting subsidized healthcare than ever,” he continued. “What cuts are they talking about?”
“It’s all a way to racially divide voting in this country.”
Stein also rejected the Obama administration’s claim that they are not using race to divide Americans.
“They’re handing out pamphlets about this – and it’s been described a lot in the Wall Street Journal – [that say] ‘look, the Republican candidates are targeting President Obama because he’s black and you’re black, so you gotta go out and support him,” he stated. “That’s just nonsense.”
“The Republicans are the most pro-black party there’s ever been.”
“The Republicans are the ones who passed all the civil rights laws back in the 60s, not the Democrats,” he added.
