Barack Obama’s presidency has officially jumped the shark. This week, he meddled with the results of a fair election, claiming that Donald Trump only won because Russia interfered.
On Friday, he held a press conference before leaving on yet another lavish vacation that will cost taxpayers millions upon millions of dollars (this time to Hawaii).
During the press conference, Obama tried to use conservative icon and beloved president Ronald Reagan. And unfortunately for him, it backfired wildly.
Obama tried to claim that Reagan would be outraged to see the attitudes towards Russia and Vladimir Putin from Donald Trump and Republican voters.
Specifically, he said that Reagan would “roll over in his grave” if he saw that 1/3rd of Republicans approved of Putin.

There was just one problem with Obama’s assertion: he completely forgot that it was Reagan who held talks with USSR leader Mikhail Gorbachev in the 1980s. Reagan had no illusions about the evils of the USSR and, famously, urged Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall.
Twitter almost immediately erupted, mocking Obama for his complete and total history fail:

Ronald Reagan: Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall

"37% of Republicans approve of Putin, Ronald Reagan would roll over in his grave” – Obama
You mean like Martin Luther King Jr about you?

Lincoln: "Free those slaves"
JFK: "Stop those ships"
Reagan: "Tear down this wall"
Obama: "Hey, cut it out" https://t.co/zGMzwxYMxq

Maybe from now on, Obama should just keep his mouth shut and not talk about things that he clearly doesn’t understand.
