Barack Obama Called A “Counterfeit” And “Fraud” By Cornel West

President Obama is a political fraud, left-wing academic Cornel West charged in his latest tirade against the man he once supported.

“He posed as if he was a kind of Lincoln,” said the firebrand professor. “And we ended up with a brown-faced Clinton.”

The professor at Princeton University and Union Theological Seminary expressed disillusionment with the first black President during an interview with Salon, where he attacked policies involving Wall Street, national security and the response to protests in Ferguson.

“He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit,” said West. “It’s like you’re looking for John Coltrane and you get Kenny G in brown skin.”

It was not the first time that the outspoken and controversial intellectual turned on Obama.

The staunch leftist, who has also taught at Harvard, said in a 2011 interview that the President is “most comfortable with upper-middle-class white and Jewish men who consider themselves very smart.”

In 2012, he called him a “Rockefeller Republican in blackface.”

Sounds like Dr. West really just wants to call the POTUS an race-trading “Uncle Tom”.

Say it with ya chest, brotha.
