Claim: Alt-right news outlets claim that former president Obama is commanding a 30000 person army to oppose Donald Trump.
A story that is circulating among alt-right media outlets such as InfoWars and Brietbart is that former president Barack Obama is commanding an army of 30,000 people to be agitators working against Donald Trump’s administration. As evidence of their claim, they note that Obama is not leaving Washington DC and is living less than two miles from the White House.
From this location near the White House, they allege that Obama will be orchestrating a shadow government. This shadow government supposedly grew from Obama’s Organizing for America (OFA). The claim says that OFA will not only organize protests to defend ObamaCare but also riots.
There is absolutely no evidence presented by these alt-right news agencies that support the claims that they are making. While the claims made by the alt-right media would certainly make for a great novel or movie, in reality, this claim is a bold faced lie.
