Laura Ingraham criticized former President Barack Obama for attempting to "breathe life into his sad legacy" with his address in South Africa. 

"Strongman politics are ascendant suddenly," Obama said at the event in Johannesburg, which marked what would have been the 100th birthday of Nelson Mandela.

Taking veiled shots at President Trump, he added that "those in power seek to undermine every institution or norm that gives democracy meaning," warning that the world is at a "crossroads."

Ingraham said that Obama was attempting to write Trump off as a "Putin-like dictator."

"Let's not pretend America, by the way, hasn't had a history of making convenient alliances with unsavory strongmen," Ingraham said, alluding to Trump's summit with Russia President Vladimir Putin on Monday.

She pointed out that Obama had cut off a meeting with India, a key Democratic ally, in order to attend a memorial service for the former king of Saudi Arabia.

"Trump was elected, in part, because many Americans were fed up with the "weak-man" leadership of Barack Obama."

Ingraham said that Obama's remarks seemed like an opportunity to seize on an opening that globalists feel they have following Trump's controversial remarks after Monday's summit.

"[Democrats] have this really convenient case of amnesia regarding their own role in the rotten state of affairs with Russia," she added.

She criticized Obama for not publicly confronting Chinese President Xi Jinping on the world stage after the alleged hack of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management in 2015.

"Barack Obama and the Democrats clearly fear that Trump might succeed where they failed," she said.
