Hillary Film Reveals Obama Called Trump a ‘Fascist’

January 27, 2020

Then-President Barack Obama labeled candidate Donald Trump a “fascist” in a phone call with Sen. Tim Kaine during the 2016 election, according to a forthcoming four-part documentary on Hillary Clinton.

“President Obama called me last night and said, ‘Tim, remember, this is no time to be a purist,’” Kaine recalled in an episode of Hillary on Hulu. “You’ve got to keep a fascist out of the White House.’”

Speaking Saturday at the Sundance film festival, Hillary elaborated: “If you look at the definition [of fascist]… I think we can agree on several things: One, he has authoritarian tendencies and he admires authoritarian leaders, [Vladimir] Putin being his favorite. He uses a form of really virulent nationalism. He identifies targets: immigrants, blacks, browns, gays, women, whoever the target of the day or week is … I think you see a lot of the characteristics of what we think of [as] nationalistic, fascistic kinds of tendencies and behaviors.”

“Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty” — sometimes attributed to Hillary’s mentor Saul Alinsky.
