Former Obama administration officials are inadvertently invoking a lot of bad memories. First, Hillary shared an awkward video that backfired hilariously. Now, David Axelrod reminds everyone of the feckless attempt at world leadership by his former boss.
I sat in a gilded hall at Cairo University eight years ago and heard a president courageously stand up to extremism and FOR human rights.

Yeah, we remember the speech and what subsequently ensued in the Middle East.
Serious question: how'd that story end (re: extremism)? https://t.co/ZNB75aCBYg

The result of that mush mouth speech by then President Obama was MORE TERROR. Thanks for reminding us David. https://t.co/tmk8xzgUrC

…and that speech led to the Islamist overthrow of Gaddafi, the rebellion in Syria, and the brief Islamist MB rule in Egypt. Proud? https://t.co/ivebQVWUZs

With the Muslim Brotherhood as special guests! https://t.co/2PQys7BvE3

Come on Mr. Axelrod, he surrendered to the Muslim Brotherhood and abdicated his authority to lead the world. He said it "Lead from behind" https://t.co/dWQDbRbgvK

I sat in my living room as a president lied, gave Iran billions, sat back as Saudi destroyed Yemen & said there was no more gas in Syria. https://t.co/J5f2gHMY2Y

Other former Obama administration officials should take a hint. The best thing for every one of them to do is remain completely silent when it comes to what Trump is doing in the Middle East. The failures of the last eight years are remembered by a lot of Americans.
