Indicted Director D’Souza Speaks Out: The Film ‘2016’ Does Seem to Have Gotten Under Obama’s Skin (Video)

Dinesh D’Souza was on with Sean Hannity tonight in his first interview since he was indicted on federal charges of violating campaign finance laws by using straw donors to funnel money to a U.S. Senate candidate.

Dinesh said it’s been quite a week” since the politically charged indictment.
Dinesh wouldn’t talk about the case but did say this:

“Well, I will say that the film “2016” was a film that does seem to have gotten under President Obama’s skin. And the reason for this is it wasn’t just a critique of Obamacare or policies but I, in a sense, went into Obama’s world and also into Obama’s mind. There I was at the Obama family homestead in Kenya. I interviewed his brother. And, of course, we advanced a thesis that here is a traumatized and somewhat of a messed up guy who is haunted by the dreams of his father, the topic of his own autobiography. There was a rant against the film on Obama’s own website which is So, we know the film rattled him. We know the film upset him. And whether this is a kind of payback remains to be seen.
