You may have heard former President Obama accuse Americans of being “confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism, mommy issues” at an Obama Foundation Summit this week, analyzing why we’re not making progress on environmental issues.

Social media users sounded off on Obama’s offensive and “arrogant” description of his fellow Americans.

Republican strategist Brad Blakeman, who served in the President George W. Bush administration from 2001-2004, responded on Fox News Wednesday, asserting, “If anyone has mommy issues, it’s the president.”

Fox anchor Jon Scott was taken a bit back by the comment, so he pressed Blakeman to explain.

“I’ve heard him in public forum talk about his mother,” Blakeman said.

Another panelist, former Obama economic adviser Robert Wolf, was not amused.

“It’s the holiday season, we’re much better than that,” Wolf said. “You should read his two books.”

The conversation then turned to the future of both major political parties. Critics have accused the Democratic Party of being distant from young, progressive voters. It was perhaps clearest when the party nominated an older crop of candidates in the last presidential election. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, who is vying for Speaker, is 78 years old.

However, Wolf said it’s the GOP who is aging, noting the party hasn’t nominated someone under the age of 55 for president for quite some time.
