Two years after former President Barack Obama said his transgender bathroom policy was partly responsible for the Democrats' loss in 2016, BET founder Bob Johnson says the Democrats are still moving too far left.

Obama accepted some of the blame for Hillary Clinton's staggering loss to Donald Trump in 2016, saying his transgender bathroom policy may have distracted the public from his other policies.

"They may know less about the work that my administration did on trying to promote collective bargaining or overtime rules," Obama said in December 2016. "But they know a lot about the controversy around transgender bathrooms because it's more controversial; it attracts more attention."

Johnson, who describes himself as a longtime centrist and Democrat, says not much has changed in the Democratic leadership since 2016. He said partisan politics in America has become "very wicked and very mean."

"The [Democrat] party in my opinion, for me personally, has moved too far to the left," Johnson, the founder of cable network BET told CNBC's Hadley Gamble on Tuesday.

Johnson, who became America's first Black billionaire after selling BET in 2001, said time is running out for the Democrats in 2020.

"I don't have a particular candidate (I'm supporting) in the party at this time. I think at the end of the day, if a Democrat is going to beat Trump, then that person, he or she, will have to move to the center and you can't wait too long to do that."

Johnson said President Trump's tax breaks have stimulated the economy and Black unemployment is at the lowest level in decades.

"I think the economy is doing great ... African-American unemployment is at its lowest level," Johnson said.

When asked about Trump's leadership style, which is considered divisive by the liberal news media, Johnson said Trump has "got his own style" of leadership, though he probably needs to "step back a little bit from some of his showmanship."

    Bob Johnson's name got changed to Uncle Whitey years ago.

    On another Dump topic. One of his golf clubs was hosting a strip club event -- yes, you heard it right -- and the whores, hookers, heifers and strippers,were supposed to escort the golfers and their caddies around the course. Welp, that was until Dump's BFF, sexual deviant and child pornographer Epstein got busted. As of today the event has been canceled. Inquiring minds want to know why it was canceled. These friggin sexual predators all ride and roll together and the sick part of it is they don't see a damned thing wrong with going after under-age kids, including their own.

  • Bushbabe

    Nietzschean ressentiment (resentment or revenge) for the pain of oppression and domination (which is the outcome of slave/master morality) are the physiological impetus for political identity in the modern age. In other words, modern identity politics gather energy from memories (identities) of subordination that react to or against the (material and bodily) sites-Friedrich Nietzsche (philosopher, author): Is slave morality real?

  • chris

    The Democrats seem to care more about illegals than citizens, especially black citizens. That's why they will lose.

  • Bushbabe

    Why haven't they cared about the people on Skid row in their democratic strong hold state California? Why would the two trolls Beto and Corey cross the border to pander to people who don't even live here? Why because they need more slaves.Republicans have been consistent and their record is in plain view. Democrats care about oppressing and suppressing. If you need help look up Malcolm X so he could educate you on who the democrats care for.

    We have no responsibility to those who not citizens. Black people still have the greatest needs.

    Now we have the Democratic Demolition Derby and like Bill Clinton said--Democratic voters are going to fall in love with their candidate and have a hard time supporting the eventual nominee.

    Unfortunately the other part of the Bill Clinton quote is that Republicans fall in line and that's why Trump is in the White House writing executive order after executive order tearing Obamacare apart.

    I agree. The far left wing has their ideas, but at the end of the day the platform will be basically left of center, which is actually where a lot of Americans are anyway.
    At the end of the day all the Democrats want to defeat Trump. You'll see a few holdouts, bitter that their candidate didn't get nominated, but I think most Democrats will support the nominee so we don't get 8 years of Trump.

    I was with Bob until he refused to condemn Dump the way that he did the democrats. I feel that the democrats have taken the black vote for granted often while the rethuglicans could care less about the black vote and black interests. The democrats are focused on illegals but all of a sudden are throwing around the term “reparations” because they know they can’t beat Dump without us. I’m sick and tired of both parties because neither seems to be genuinely concerned about the interests of black americans.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I dont argue with people who call African Americans "blacks"... its signifies a racist undertone that is conducive to the beautiful melanin in my system...So keep it moving Breibart...

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    My point is that illegals have been used and abused by white people just like white people have abused black people and had the nerve to get mad when we wanted full citizenship back in the 1960s
    If black people got off their a$$es and voted as a group consistently we could complain but we don't so we can't.
    One thing I admire about white people is this--they plan their work and work their plan.
    Look at the Supreme Court today--that 5-4 conservative majority is the result of 30 years of planning and voting in every single presidential election. White people go to the poll even if the position of dog catcher is the only thing on the ballot.
    OTOH black folks want to pop up talking about reparations when they haven't voted in a presidential election since Carter and don't understand how Congress or federal judiciary operates.
    I really think we as a people need basic literacy on civics in our community because no one understands how state election results impact the House of Representatives or the Senate.
    You have to work the damn system---vote in every federal, state and local election. Research the issues and get together and discuss the best candidate(s).

    Folks going away for the crimes they committed has never been a concern for me. The concern for me is making sure that these police departments are enforcing the law equally which was a top priority for the Justice Department under Obama. The Justice Department would study the police departments looking for racial biases amongst other things and then provide a list of systematic changes that must be implemented. Dump and Beauregard Sessions got rid of it.

    By black vote I mean the MILLIONS of us that vote at each national election and hundreds of thousands that vote at the state level. If blacks didn’t vote for democrats, they couldn’t get in office. Rethuglicans have the white vote on lock. Furthermore, if the black vote wasn’t so important, the rethuglicans wouldn’t be so hard set on gerrymandering, purging votes and implementing ID laws. Your argument makes no sense.

    Right but blacks are blaming that Democrats do nothing for them but guess what when have Democrats been elected long enough to do anything for black folks and that's mainly because blacks don't vote consistently.
    I know that. But it only got to that point because black people don't vote consistently.
    Just like black people have to wait in line in polling places because they don't have enough voting machines while in white areas there are more than enough.
    Black people in NC sat out the 2010 election and now the GOP has a veto-proof majority in the state legislature forever so it doesn't matter if the governor is a Republican or Democrat they can override his veto and change the rules and limit the power of the governor if he's a Democrat.
    It didn't just happen overnight. It happened because people sit on their lazy a$$es exchanging conspiracy theories and not believing that their votes count.
    You got to be in it--to win it.

  • Bushbabe

    Malcolm went on to point out the underlying relations between the Democrats in Washington and the black leadership shown through the microcosm of the events leading up to the march:

    It was the grass roots out there in the street. It scared the white man to death, scared the white power structure in Washington, D.C. to death. I was there. When they found that this black steamroller was going to come down on the capital, they called in Wilkins, they called in Randolph, they called in these national Negro leaders that you respect and told them, ‘Call it off.’ Kennedy said, ‘Look, you all are letting this thing go too far.’ And Old Tom said, ‘Boss, I can’t stop it, because I didn’t start it.’ I’m telling you what they said. They said, ‘I’m not even in it, much less at the head of it.’ They said, ‘These Negroes are doing things on their own. They’re running ahead of us.’ And that old shrewd fox, he said, ‘If you all aren’t in it, I’ll put you in it. I’ll put you at the head of it. I’ll endorse it. I’ll welcome it. I’ll help it. I’ll join it.’…

    Once they formed (the Council for United Civil Rights Leadership) with the white man over it, he promised them and gave them $800,000 to split up among the Big Six; and told them that after the march was over they’d give them $700,000 more. A million and a half dollars—split up between leaders that you have been following, going to jail for, crying crocodile tears for. And they’re nothing but Frank James and Jesse James and the what-do-you-call-’em brothers.

    As soon as they got the setup organized, the white man made available to them top public-relations experts; opened the news media across the country at their disposal, which then began to project these Big Six as the leaders of the march. Originally they weren’t even in the march.

    As the 1960’s struggle deepened the black masses got out of hand. Riots and rebellions burgeoned in ghetto after ghetto as the masses, tired of promises, demanded delivery. The initial leadership of the NAACP, SCLC, CORE and SNCC increasingly lost power to newer and younger black power forces who tried to reflect the radical demands of the black masses.

    But not even these elements could connect solidly with the masses in motion. Riot after riot, revolt after revolt demonstrated that if the moderate leadership, including King, could hardly venture into the ghettoes safely, even the more accepted leaders could hot lead or control the events. The masses were out of hand, as the white bourgeois political forces learned when they attempted to pacify the upheavals through dealings with local leaders who proved to have no mass following or power to stop the upheaval.

  • EMILY POST

    Wow ? lol now I know you are not trying to get on Republicans and your party is for illegal aliens more they are for African Americans and their communities. Lol any Republican policy trying to put a lid on illegal immigration is better than anything the Democrats are offering for “People of Color” the Democratic Party can’t even say the word Black.
    Lol ? and you have the audacity to question the Republicans try to get Democrats to say the word Black and Policy in the same sentence...

  • Bushbabe

    The other keystone of the alliance of the democrats was the Communist Party and other leftists, who played a crucial role in allying with Roosevelt and the Democrats to ensure that rebellious workers did not transcend industrial unionism into political action independent of the Democratic Party. (See U.S. Labor and the Left in Socialist Voice No. 5.)

  • Bushbabe

    Let us sum up. The Democratic Party has never been the source of black gains. At times it disburses the gains actually won by mass challenges to the system. Its function is to allocate these gains through a system of brokers (leaders) who have or who have been given clout within specific sectors organized as “interest groups.” The Democratic Party delivers only to the degree that capitalism can afford to. It could never, even at the height of a prosperity greater than any prosperity that ever occurred in the history of the world deliver enough to feed, clothe, and house its entire working class. Now that the bubble has burst and the chronic, mortal crisis has resurfaced, the sops are tinier and the many previous gains are eroded or taken entirely away.

    The Democratic Party is the institution within which the various sectors are forced to exercise their clout against each other for a portion of the small take. Not only does the party mechanism, with its rewards dependent upon votes and maneuvers, encourage sectors to vie with each other for scarce sops—but within each group, separate interests are forced to clash in order to maximize their take. Democratic Party politics internally—with city pitted against city, region against region, state against state, Hispanics against blacks against Poles against Italians against Irish against Jews for a piece of the federal budget action—is the war of all against all which mirrors life under capitalism. That is the purpose of the Democratic Party. Through the allocation of sops and reforms, it is designed to divide, conquer and destroy, existing or potential mass movements. (No wonder the present dispute within the black leadership is so hostile.

  • lovelygamour

    one of the reasons that trump won is because the obama administration pushed through certain things eventhough the country said no or didnt care. and im not talking about healthcare. pushing that through was seen as the first step of disregarding the people. it wasnt the same as fighting for black civil rights.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    We seen what you did with the network you hata black people so ofc you love fat foot trump.

  • Bashi22

    With Republicans or Democratic Blacks are still in the same position so none is different from the others. However blacks will demonized their own people for choosing a political party of their choice.

  • lovelygamour

    plus, job gains are because the last administration and you have a lot of people retiring/firing. just think about all the older workers who are at the top of the payscale, the bosses dont want to pay them anymore. so they are getting rid of them and the younger white kids are trying to be youtube stars. the gains have nothing to do with trump.

  • Cliffpetty

    100% agree! Dems are too far left. That's why folks Trump going to win again...and that's a damn shame. But hell I stay in Texas and these illegals are out if control. Hell Obama did that. Now we left with this wreck trump. Thanks OBAMA!

    I cannot in good conscience fathom how any Woman, Christian, or person with common sense can vote Democrat. They use people of color by regaling us with incentives of free assistance, low income housing, and all other subsidies as if ALL people of color are in need. Its disgusting and absolutely insulting. Minorities who work hard for everything they have despite life's trials and tribulations and who don't blame the world for their shortcomings but rise above despite of can see the Democrats for the snakes they are. The residents of South Philly are seeing first hand with the ''Gentrification'' of our neighborhoods by these so called Democrats. They wouldn't want to make the neighborhood nice for the people who lived there, but made it nice for THEM and now only THEY can afford it. With Republicans they wear their shit on their sleeves, what you see is what you get. When you work hard for your money you don't want to see it squandered and a portion given to those who don't work as hard as you so I can bang with Republicans on that all day.

    Well, I’m a registered rethuglican, but I have voted democratic since 2016 in the last presidential election and state elections because of my stances on climate change, abortion rights, gun control and healthcare align more with the democrats.

    I agree but black people might as well get on trumps good side because the dems dont have any candidates that will get the white women to turn on trump.

    Democrats will lose if they don't move away from liberal immigration policies. Immigration is really the problem. People protesting and demanding that America set free all the illegals in detention centers. Ridiculous. Set them free to do what? Overburden our already stretched public school systems, hospitals, etc? Illegals are uneducated, poor and wanting. They need EVERYTHING: Food, housing, education. How are they gonna get it? Through Americans and their tax dollars. Black folks STILL struggling. Add that to more Whites who're struggling because those good-paying labor jobs they used to get so easy no longer exist. But, you want people to have sympathy for illegals to the point we let 100s of thousands of them in the country only to get on the taxpayer dole? Nah. Democrats just dont get it. People who would NEVER vote for Trump will do it because Dems are weak on immigration. It's sad because Trump is a terrible president, but he knows what messages will get him re-elected.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    And how are black people going to get said things unless it's through the Democratic Party.

    Republicans have never needed more than a small amount of the black and brown vote in certain areas to maintain power.

    And now that the Supreme Court has ok'd extreme gerrymandering Republicans will have a lock on at least the House of Representatives for another decade and since Republicans have strategically targeted small-population red states Democrats will have a problem maintaining control of the Senate for any amount of time.

    In your post you've admitted defeat but s you want to point fingers at another group instead of the fact that blacks have squandered their electoral influence

    You keep asking why blacks aren't getting this or that and I have explained why but you refuse to see the truth and no illegals won't get amnesty because McConnell has confirmed more than a 100 judges with more to come, and there will be no solution from the Republicans because the illegal alien boogyman has been too effective in getting their base to voting booth
