Herman Cain: Obama 'Trying to Go Out With Some Hyperbole'

Fox News' "Fox & Friends"

By    |   Thursday, 29 Dec 2016 11:59 AM

Former 2012 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said that President Barack Obama is attempting to end his presidential term with an impact, but his actions are actually damaging to President-elect Donald Trump.

"Obama is trying to go out with some hyperbole. Mr. Tough Guy after eight years of Vladimir Putin kicking him around and basically embarrassing this nation," Cain said, referring to reports of Obama's response to Russia's election hacking.

Cain made the comments Thursday on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program.

"We have a new sheriff in town. His name is Donald J. Trump … President Obama is being hurtful. He's not being helpful. Secondly, he's already trying to position himself as a spoiler during the Trump administration. That's sad."

George W. Bush set a better example when he left the presidency to Obama, Cain said. "He said I'm going to shut up, get out of sight, and let the new president be president. This president isn't doing it during the transition and he's probably not going to do it after President-elect Trump takes office."

Secretary of State John Kerry's comments about a two-state solution for Israel also drew Cain's criticism in the "Fox & Friends" interview.

"That speech yesterday by Kerry was a perfect example of deceiving and misleading the American people to believe several flawed assumptions. Number one, a two-state solution is not the only option. Number two, he never talked about the fact that Israel has come forward multiple times with a proposal for peace and the Palestinians walked away from it every time. They don't want peace. The Palestinians. That's the third flaw. They don't want peace. They have said they want Israel destroyed and wiped off the face of the Earth," Cain said.

The former presidential candidate blasted California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters' statement that she will fight against Trump's plans. "Nobody believes Maxine Walters except the people who unfortunately continue to reelect her," he said.

Trump's job agenda will be successful because of his positive leadership, Cain said. "It's called the tone from the top and it's driving liberals crazy.

"People are calling Donald Trump saying, OK, are you making special deals? I don't know, he's probably saying, no. I'm going to get my tax cuts through. That's what's causing businesses to keep jobs here and bring jobs here.

"It's because of the positive tone from the top, not the negative tone from the top," Cain said.
