Farage at CPAC: My Favorite Part of Election Night Was Watching CNN

Posted: Feb 24, 2017 2:00 PM

Nigel Farage, former leader of the UK Independent Party and leader of Brexit, continued his anti-globalist victory tour in the United States by speaking at CPAC on Friday.

He ripped the mainstream media, chastised Barack Obama, and applauded the decision that America made to elect Donald Trump.

"My favorite part of that evening [Election Day], was watching the faces of the CNN presenters!" Farage said to the cheering crowd.

Farage has yet to forgive Obama for his comments he made before Britain's formal vote to leave the European Union, and reminded CPAC that he thanks Obama to this day.

"I will, to my dying day, be grateful that President Obama came to my country, intervened in the referendum, and told the United Kingdom's people -- America's greatest friend and ally in the world -- that if we voted to get our independence, we would go to the back of the line," he said. 

In a radio interview after last year's presidential election, Farage referred to Obama as "that creature – a loathsome individual who couldn’t stand our country."

Trump couldn't have done it on his own Farage said.  "He had every single one of you and this event is your celebration.  Well done to all of you!" he said.
