Former President Barack Obama urged Virginia voters to ignore what the "fake outrage" and "trumped-up culture wars" he claimed was being pushed by "right-wing media."

The 44th President, who was campaigning for Democrat Terry McAuliffe in Virginia, denounced focusing on cultural issues and said Americans should be more focused on recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We don't have time to be wasting on these phony trumped up culture wars, this fake outrage that right-wing media peddles to juice their ratings," Obama said.

Obama appeared to be speaking about Republican Glenn Youngkin, McAuliffe's opponent, whose campaign platform includes supporting parents against liberal agendas like Critical Race Theory.

"Instead of stoking anger aimed at school boards and administrators, who are just trying to keep our kids safe, who are just doing their jobs, stoking anger to the point where some of them are actually getting death threats," Obama said.

"We should be making it easier for teachers and schools to give our kids the world-class education they deserve, and do to so safely while they are in the classroom."

WATCH:

The former Presidents remarks drew backlash.

Critics argued that children's education is not part of the "trumped-up culture war," considering McAuliffe has said parents shouldn't have a say in school board decisions.

Others highlighted that Loudoun County Schools also stands accused of "covering up" two sexual assaults as they pushed controversial LGBT policies.

"Sorry, but McAuliffe saying that parents shouldn't be in charge of their children's education and the Loudoun County school board lying to parents about sexual assaults in bathrooms isn't 'trumped-up cultural wars,'" Ben Shapiro said.

"Let's be clear: THEY are waging the culture war. We are fighting back. Covering up a sexual assault in school restrooms to push a transgender policy in gov't schools is the definition of waging a culture war," radio host Larry O'Connor said.

"Barack Obama is telling parents they have fake outrage over school boards covering up sexual assaults and teaching critical race theory," Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) reacted.

"The 'right-wing media' tricked Terry McAuliffe into telling parents they should influence school boards. @GlennYoungkin is surging because he's got answers for Virginia's public education's failures," radio host Hugh Hewitt pointed out.

"Two girls were sexually assaulted on school property, and school admin officials publicly lied about their knowledge of it to parents," reporter Susan Crabtree pointed out.

"My child's education is not a trumped-up culture war," Michael Needham, chief of staff to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), fired back.

"Here in WA: I was fired for refusing an experimental vaccine, I saw the COVID pts. Vax passes start Monday in Seattle. An elementary school has a gender unicorn on the wall. A high school handed out a sexual survey asking when kids first had anal. But sure, it's Trumped-up anger," another person said.

"Gaslighting at its finest," one person observed.

"Zero self-awareness. Zero accountability," another person said.

"Schools cover up sexual assault. That's not trumped up. That's not culture war. That's a dereliction of public duty. The failure to address it is a failure of leadership. Saying otherwise is a deflection," another person said.
