"* Barack Obama, during his 2008 campaign, tried to silence Reverend Jeramiah Wright with a Briefcase Full of Money regarding his connection to him. Wright refused three times, even at a secluded area the final time. Obama then mentioned that the one problem Wright has is that he always attempts to tell the truth, and Wright tells him "That's actually a good problem." Obama then publicly disowns Wright, and made him a pariah to the public. Obama later does something similar to Oprah Winfrey, where despite her hard work in garnering enough popularity for Obama to get him elected, he and particularly Michelle Obama evicted her from an anti-obesity meeting at the White House for reasons both relating to Obama possibly replacing Michelle as his wife, and mostly because she "doesn't want a fat person waddling around in the White House." Flash-forward 4 years later, with the 2012 elections both Wright and Oprah are more than willing to reveal everything they know about what Obama had done to them during the election in an interview with Ed Klein for his upcoming exposee on the 2008 elections called "The Amateur.""
For the record, those interviews did happen. They're covered on Breitbart and PJTV in addition to Sean Hannity. Klein even supplied the tapes from the interview.
Because it's not a good example. This was not a case of an abused underling taking revenge, this was a case of one faction in a civil war later gaining the advantage.
