WND Again Forgets Its Editor Didn't Accept Obama As President
Topic: WorldNetDaily

The juxtaposition was too perfect not to screen-shot.

A Jan. 23 WorldNetDaily column by dubious historian David Barton cited "4 reasons 'Trump is not my president' claim is foolish." He claimed that those making it were deficient in education on "American history, government, Constitution and truth," and that such a claim "establishes personal opinion as the ultimate measure of right and wrong – that truth is whatever I believe or declare it to be. ... There is no alternate reality. None."

Barton didn't mention the people who spent eight years claiming that Barack Obama was not their president -- one of whom published Barton's column.

WND editor Joseph Farah made his feelings on the subject very clear in a June 2014 column: "Obama has never been my president. I have steadfastly refused to acknowledge him as such. He is undeserving of the honorific. To this day, I am unconvinced he is even eligible for office."

In other words, one could say that Farah was the original #NotMyPresident guy, predating all of the Trump naysayers.

This is not the first time WND has hypocritically complained about people not accepting their elected president.
