On Friday, Barack Obama crawled out of the woods to deliver a speech to students at the University of Illinois after receiving the Paul H. Douglas Award for Ethics in Government.
Without much surprise, the former President used his speech to launch attacks at President Trump and Republicans in wake of the November elections. In his smears against the Republican Party, however, Obama made an odd reference to the Benghazi terrorist attack. And Benghazi hero Kris Paronto quickly intercepted.
Obama is heard saying the Republican Party is filled with “paranoia” and used Benghazi as an example to make his case.
Obama said, “Over the past few decades, the politics of division and resentment and paranoia has unfortunately found a home in the Republican party.”
He then continued by saying Republican members of Congress embraced “wild conspiracy theories like those surrounding Benghazi.”
And it was this particular statement that set Paronto off. See the video of Obama’s remarks below.

The Benghazi terrorist attack will always cast a cloud over Obama’s Presidency. And it will continue to haunt him, especially after allowing 4 men to die, because he and Hillary Clinton failed to send help.
Obama can twist the Benghazi attack whatever way he wants, but luckily Paronto is there to hold him in check and set the record straight. Afterall, he was there to witness exactly what happened and will NEVER forget.
