Although it looks like Tucker Carlson might have something to say on that.

Yep, the journalist had a few choice words to say about the former president...

And people are outraged by his comments, especially after he went into depth on his views...

Now, as you will all know, Obama was one of our country's most beloved presidents.

As the forty-fourth president of the United States, Obama smashed barriers by becoming the first-ever African-American leader.

He served 2 terms as president...

The Illinois Democrat had started his career in politics as a senate who focused on the legislation on ethics, as well as the expansion of health care services and early childhood education programs for the poor.

And he carried these values throughout his presidency...

Obama cut taxes for working families, small businesses, and first-time home buyers, and he stuck to his promise of tackling financial reform, alternative energy, and reinventing education and health care.

Obama became the president of the people...

And gained a strong and loyal fan base as a result of his progressive views on social issues, such as same-sex marriage and gun control.

So, quite understandably...

Obama fans far and wide were devastated when he was eventually replaced with our current POTUS, Donald Trump, in 2017.

But, despite his presidency ending nearly 4 years ago...

Obama has remained very much in the public eye and has continued to travel the world and deliver speeches on the causes that are most important to him.

He was very present throighout the 2020 election campaigns...

Tucker Carlson described Obama as “one of the sleaziest and most dishonest figures in the history of American politics."

After he "used George Floyd’s death at a funeral to attack the police," he said. But Carlson may have taken things way too far after going into detail about his thoughts on the former president...

During the service, Obama said: “Bull Connor may be gone. But today we witness with our own eyes police officers kneeling on the necks of black Americans."

“George Wallace may be gone. But we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators," he added.

Connor was the commissioner of public safety in the 1960s, famously known for using fire hoses and dogs to attack civil rights demonstrators.

He’s since become known as one of the most racist leaders.

Obama pushed Congress to pass a new Voting Rights Act during the eulogy, one that Lewis had been striving for himself.

In 2013, the Supreme Court got rid of the 1965 law, allowing 9 states to change their voting laws without federal approval.

Obama also described the filibuster as disenfranchising Black Americans...

“Once we pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, we should keep marching," Obama said. “And if all this takes eliminating the filibuster in order to secure the God-given rights of every American, then that’s what we should do."

Carlson blasted Obama for comparing police officers to Connor...

“Bull Connor? That country is falling apart, riven by racial strife and tribalism, and one of the most respected people in the whole country decides to pour gasoline on that and compare the police to Bull Connor," Carlson said. “As if America or Minneapolis is like Birmingham, Alabama in 1963? It’s insane. It’s reckless. “Of course, Obama doesn’t care. It’s only about November and the coming election," Carlson added.

Carlson later accused Obama of exploiting the funeral for “stupid partisan talking points about Senate procedure."

“Imagine if some greasy politician showed up at your loved one’s funeral and started throwing around stupid partisan talking points about Senate procedure. Can you imagine that?" Carlson said. So, there you have it. What do you think about his remarks? Keep scrolling for more on the former POTUS...
