While President Obama was in Asia, he unloaded 18
separate attacks on the U.S.
President Obama spoke at a Young Southeast Asian Leaders Town-Hall Meeting in
Laos during the first week of September 2016 and managed to "unload all manner
of grievances on the United States." This according to a Sep. 9, 2016
article by Grabien News that said they looked at video of the talk posted on
the White House website and "counted 18 separate times he talked down his
employer, the United States of America."
Grabien News listed the grievances:

hearts and minds."

America “struggled to stay true” to our founding ideal that
all men are created equal.

the private sector is being “lazy."
The United States is still to this day learning how to
develop industry without destroying the environment.
Due to industrialization, America “used to have terrible
pollution … everywhere.”
America’s role in the Vietnam war led to mass displacement
of people from their homes.
America dropped more bombs on Laos than on Germany and Japan
during World War II … more than 2 million bombs … “the bombs
fell like rain.” More bombs, he said on several occasions, were
dropped on Laos per capita than anywhere else in the world.
We bombed the “simple homes” of civilians in Laos. “Villages
and entire allies were obliterated.” The ancient Plain of Jars
“was devastated.” Countless civilians were killed.
