Jamie Foxx Called Barack Obama ‘Lord And Savior’ During ‘Soul Train Awards’ Show

Jamie Foxx called President Obama our "lord and savior"

Jamie Foxx called President Barack Obama “our lord and savior” during the Soul Train Music Awards on Sunday evening. The Oscar-winning actor uttered the rather unusual description of an elected leader during his on-stage appearance at the music awards show.

Foxx’s comment was used as a preview of the Soul Train Music Awards show which aired on the BET network, according to Newsbusters. Foxx had this to about President Obama:

“It’s like church over here. It’s like church in here. First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama.”

Statements made glorifying President Obama from supporters and sarcastic references calling the president “the messiah” are not uncommon. Jamie Foxx is not the first celebrity or political commentator to lovingly embrace Barack Obama.

The Examiner reports that, during the 2012 Democratic National Convention, a poster was sold that called President Obama “Prophesy fulfilled.” A calendar sold during the political convention allegedly appeared to compare the president to Jesus Christ.

In 2010, Newsweek reportedly called Barack Obama the “God of all things.” In her recently published book, Florida A&M professor Barbara A. Taylor called Barack Obama an “apostle” sent by God to build a political heaven on earth. An excerpt from the book reads:

“Then, as I began to contemplate ways to assist Barack in his 2012 re-election bid something miraculous happened. I felt God’s Spirit beckoning me in my dreams at night. Listening, cautiously, I learned that Jesus walked the earth to create a more civilized society, Martin [Luther King] walked the earth to create a more justified society, but, Apostle Barack, the name he was called in my dreams, would walk the earth to create a more equalized society, for the middle class and working poor.”

    Jesus taught peace and love and brought life to people. Barrack obama has supported & funded the death of over 4 million innocent children .

  2. Consuelo Lightner

    Jamie Foxx can say whatever he wants. Lord and Savior is used for religious purposes and no I like Obama, voted for him, he is our President but Lord and Savior? no.

  3. Eric Hughes

    I think the comedian was commenting in jest. Relax people more important things to worry about… Like the KNICKS vs NETS TONITE!

  4. Consuelo Lightner

    No the President has not supported or funded the death of over 4 million innocent children. In times of war innocent people die and the wars we are in were started before Obama became President and if anyone has supported whatever wars we are discussing you need to look at Bush and Congress.

  5. Rosalind Ellis O'Neal

    I hate Jamie Fox…always have ever since In Living Color…he's a douche.

  6. Taiwa Carroll

    I don't understand some people. People will worship a false god and the antichrist will make promises that never happen. Wow does that sound familiar. Wake Up People. Stop being a racist and only like him for his color. Statistics show he was voted for by 93% of America and they were black. If that isn't racial I don't know what is. But I will tell you one thing that you better like hell because it has just begun by you all voting him back in. He is Not a god of any sort. He is a evil man and if you don't see that then you don't know God!

  7. Taiwa Carroll

    Consuelo Lightner Have you not been paying attention to the news? Benghazi episode, come on. He also took the credit for killing Osama Bin Laden when he wasn't even there. A navy soldier killed him, if he is even dead. Guillible people. He is not a good man. Why can't you people see this?

  8. Consuelo Lightner

    Seen the President put his hand over his heart during our pledge or National Anthem, your comments are a dead subject.

  9. Greek Jamaican

    I think not! He's a good role model but savior is taking it too far.

  10. Crystal Rouser Allander

    WOW! There is only one true and living God and His name is Jesus!

  11. Jose Hernandez

    I, too, voted fior Obama but agree with Consuelo regarding "Lord and Savior."

  12. Victoria Huffman

    Obama refused to put his hand over his heart for the National Anthem during the 2008 election. There is video PROOF of it. He also refused to wear the American flag lapel pin in 2008. He started doing both when his confidants told him he had better or he would lose the election. Now he does it only to appease the U.S. citizens. BTW, he is a prophet alright, he is the false prophet that comes before the anti-christ.

  13. Nick Bell

    Consuelo, I was not referring to war. The president has supported and funded the killing of over 4 Million innocent Children on US Soil in the past 4 years.

  14. Taiwa Carroll

    I agree James. He doesn't even want to be here. He cares nothing for this country and people just continue to fall into his spell and deny the truth. He's just plain evil. He doesn't even set a good example to this country. He didn't even swear on the bible during the inauguration. What kind of country has this turned into. You can't worship a muslum and be a Christian.

  15. Consuelo Lightner

    The Benghazi episode as you called even has the support of Condaleeza (Bush) appointee and he is the Commander in Chief, why shouldn't he take the credit it was under his watch that it was put together an done, no I am not gullible on the contrary quite realistic and read and research a lot and at 66 do no believe everything that is printed on these pages. He has done nothing to make me beliee he is not a good man and you have shown me nothing to proof he is not! You are the one that seems to live in the past, he was reelected, I lived with Bush for 8 years,accept the fact and move on.

  16. Eileen Camp

    "apostle barack"? god, lord and savior? Have people lost their minds?

  17. Eileen Camp

    oh right, his stomach is his heart and his wife can't be bothered and is seen asking if she has to do this.

  18. Isabel Avila Badillo

    Jesus Christ is my LORD and Saviour. I'm sure Jamie was joking, but none the less to just say that is wrong.

  19. Suzanne Harman-Appel

    You have got to be kidding me~~the President wasn't there!!! You are certainly ignorant of politics and the duties and responsibilities of a President. I am amazed you would put that statement out there for everyone to see.

  20. Eileen Camp

    so a basketball game is more important that an oscar winning actor calling our prez his lord and savior.. I think not. I wouldn't call Jamie fox a comedian..

  21. Devlin Niles

    I like Obama, I voted for him both times, but I would never call him that, or refer to to him as anything other than a Great President…I think Faith and Politics never belong in the same room.. :)

  22. Eileen Camp

    the best you have Consuelo is "blame bush", Your life is shit.. It's bush's fault.

  23. Terri Adams

    I would like to see Foxx Retract that statement! The President Is NOT my Lord and Saviour..

  24. Ryan S. Rauschke

    Consuelo Lightner, the proof is there but you still refuse to see it…. Any one who supports pph as obama does, also supports the killing of children. O and dont forget that YOUR lord and savior was in the senate and voted and supported all of bush's policies

  25. Ryan S. Rauschke

    I suppose it was also a joke when the democrats booed God…or made signs and waved them around at the convention saying the “prophecy has been fulfilled” You better wake up

  26. Rosalind Ellis O'Neal

    Who cares what his religion is really??? Johova's witnesses don't participate in the pledge of allegiance, they don't celebrate easter or christmas and they are not evil. If his religion is the only thing you can come up with to justify hating him then that's your ridiculous problem. None of you have a problem with Romney being a Mormon and we all know the history of Mormons and the fact that part of their religion was pedophilia or marrying lil girls off to men old enough to be their grandfathers. If you're gonna bash someones religion, make sure you bash yourself.

  27. Suzy Osborne

    Bawwwaaaaaaaa stop blaming bush! !!!! Obama has been in office four years n hasn't done shit. Bush would never let get this bad. READ THE FACTS! !!obama is running our country in the ground!!!!

  28. Don Williamson

    Why is there no video of this, I'm to believe our press? Seems they should back our President yet all see is words! Please someone provide a video which hasn't been doctored! on second thought isn't this America and he can say what he wishes just so long as one isn't damaged by a verbal statement!

  29. Timothy B. Willoughby

    A few facts to dispel any misconceptions on how wonderful he is….. not looking to argue. Again these are facts along with afew personal feelings thrown in. I ask everyone read it with an open mind. The stats are correct.
    Alexander posted: "It is puzzling that so many minorities voted for Barack Obama over Mitt Romney considering how disproportionately they have suffered economically during Obama's presidency. Black unemployment under Obama increased at a higher pace than whites, Minorities Disproportionately Worse Off under Obama….
    from 12.7% to 14.1%, ending at almost twice the unemployment rate of whites. Now, one out of every seven blacks is unemployed. White unemployment barely increased under Obama, from 7.1% to 7.4%.

    Blacks' median income has fallen 11.1% under Obama, more than twice as much as whites. The disparity in wealth between whites and blacks nearly doubled during Obama's tenure. According to CNN, the median net worth of the average white person is now 22 times as much as the the average black person's wealth, $110,729 to $4,995. The disparity between white and Hispanic wealth increased to a 15 to 1 ratio.

    Despite these facts, a recent Pew survey found that the number of blacks who thought they were better off now than they were five years earlier almost doubled since 2007. Minorities put Obama over the top in the election. More Latinos voted for Obama in 2012 than in 2008.

    It's not that Obama has deliberately targeted minorities. It's that his redistributionist schemes disproportionately hurt minorities more than whites. In part, this is because the net worth of minorities tends to be located morethan whites in home equity. Minorities lost much of that equity when the housing bubble burst. Last year, foreclosure rates for blacks were almost twice as high as for whites, 9.8% versus 5.0% for whites.

    The Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver (D-MO), admitsObama is getting special treatment due to his race, "With 14% unemployment, if we had a white president we'd be marching around the White House. The president knows we are going to act in deference to him in a way we wouldn't to someone white." Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) goes even further, explaining that her black constituents don't want their leadership to criticize Obama, “If we go after the president too hard, you're going after us,” she told her constituency.

    Obama essentially gets a free pass from black voters due to one-half of his skin color, even though he has made them worse off. Why is this? It could be because they perceive that he has helped them in his ground-breaking role as the first black man to be president. Yet how valid is this? Racial segregation ended approximately 45 years ago. Minorities are now represented in every echelon of American society, from scientists to CEOs to actors and members of Congress.

    Perhaps the real answer to this paradox is that Obama has artificially created a reason for minorities to like him. Obama has stoked the racial divide since taking office in order to make minorities think racism is prevalent, and that he is speaking out about it because he cares. The truth is the opposite. Obama goes out of his way to strategically create and heighten racial controversies. After Hispanic George Zimmerman shot 17-year old black Trayvon Martin on February 26, 2012, Obama could have given a speech to the country assuring Americans that the shooting was not likely a result of racism, and if it was, it was an isolated incident that should be used to heal race relations.

    Instead, Obama had Attorney General Eric Holder deliver a public statement on April 11, 2012 to the Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network before many of the facts had come out and before the prosecution had commenced. He said, “Many of you are greatly — and rightly — concerned about the recent shooting death of Trayvon Martin, a young man whose future has been lost to the ages. If we find evidence of a potential federal criminal civil rights crime, we will take appropriate action, and at every step, the facts and law will guide us forward.”.

    A month after the shooting, Obama heightened racial tensions even more, saying during an appearance in the Rose Garden, "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon." Considering it has never been clear who was the real victim in the shooting, for Obama to take sides and allude to Martin being a part of his own family sent a strong message to both blacks and whites – blacks should defend blacks against whites, even if they might be guilty.

    After black Harvard law professor Henry Louis Gates was arrested for breaking into his own house after being locked out, Obama told reporters that “the Cambridge police acted stupidly” in arresting Gates. The police reported a different version of events than the account from Gates, stating that Gates refused to speak to police when they asked what he was doing, and initially refused to even provide identification. Obama should have avoided saying anything about the incident, or said something to bring people together instead of blaming the police. Even the liberal New York Times admitted that Obama's response “represented an extraordinary plunge by a president into a local law-enforcement dispute.“.

    Another reason minorities may be ignoring their worsening economic condition under Obama is because he is telling them the opposite is true. As unemployment increases, he tells them he has created more jobs. As their homes are foreclosed upon, he brags about new government programs for homeowners, which rarely come to fruition and are little more than smoke and mirrors. He tells minorities that he has healed race relations as president, when he has fomented them.

    Obama is responsible for the most racially polarized electorate since 1988. No doubt as a result of his blatant racial pandering, fewer whites supported him in 2012 than in 2008. Exit polls revealed that 4%fewer whites voted for Obama in 2012 than in 2008.

    The saddest part about this paradox is that many of the minorities who voted to re-elect Obama will lose their jobs under him. The layoffs began immediately after Obama won re-election. There have been over 100,000 layoffs from more than 125 companies so far, including 15,000 from Hostess, the maker of Twinkies. Ironically, many of the layoffs are occurring in the healthcare industry, due to the unaffordability of Obamacare.

    Minorities have been sold a bill of goods based on racist rhetoric. Obama stands for the opposite of color blindness, and has made Americans hyper-aware of race. He has fooled minorities into thinking the questionable Trayvon Martin and Henry Louis Gates incidents represent racism, when in reality, the millions of minorities who have disproportionately lost their jobs, homes and savings are the real minority.

    Anyone who thinks Obama is our savior has been sadly misled. To be sure we now know that they have no faith in Jesus christ. Obama is a Prophet alright, of Satan. He is aa their, a liar, not a Christian a Muslim. I have no problem with Muslims except that he is a radical Muslim and always has been . To be led by this man, is to be led straight to hell, and that's. where he is taking this country

  31. Jim My

    Michael Wright what facts? How can you even say some people cannot accept the facts, what facts do you have to prove this to be true?

  32. Michele Torres

    Come on people. He was joking, it was in jest as Eric Huge commented. He is a omeian. Give me a break, we all know that he's the president not the lord and savior. He's a great president and I voted for him twice but I know that he's not God. I agree with Eric, there are better things to worry about. Go Knicks!

  33. Lauren Siegel

    @ Eileen Camp – You can pull that stick out of your ass now. The elections are over.

  34. Leslie Long Bennett

    There is ONE GOD! He is my Savior…He came to earth to die for my sins do that I did not have to! It makes me sick that some would even think that there is any other God. Obama has turned his back to the One and only Highest God. He worships something else. I pray for the people who printed this and for the people who believe it!

  35. Steve Coppola

    I also thought this was a dead issue. It is not necessary to put your hand over your heart when the national anthem is sung, and that is where most of the pics that caused this argument come from. Obama, among many others, did not put their hands over their hearts when the anthem was sung. But was not putting your hand over your heart or wearing a lapel pin the smart thing to do? Probably not.

  36. Romi Cole

    YOU Have no idea what you are saying.He support that women has a Choice.He isn't the President who started the war,and killing soliders this is what they choice to do.Everyone has a Choice.President Obama is cleaning up the mess that was done years ago.That you probably voted for.Blame Yourself,no one else.

  37. Tim Bertrand

    Taiwa Carroll So Obama is a trained military personell now? Bush took credit for Saddam Husseins death, did he actually capture and hang Saddam with his own hands? Lol Obama wasn't even there. That may be the single dumbest thing I've read in a long time

    Eileen I was gonna say something smart ass about grown ass people using avatars for profile pics but instead I'll say this…
    Eileen and Ryan, take a deep breath and CHILL THE F@$K out!? Are you two really going to get but hurt over a comment that Jamie Foxx made? Jamie FOXXX!
    I know you're better than that. JAMIE FOXXX!? That's equivalent of listening to ANYTHING Limbaugh or Trump says. Get mad at me all you want but, come on JAMIE FOXX!? Lol
    So yes the Knick vs Nets get my attention tonite after a full day of work. Also Ryan the GOP are just as guilty or more when it comes to using The Lord as a rallying point for politics. ( Damn there I go with those stones in glass house again)

    Rosalind before you open you mouth know you history no where is the history of Mormon does it say what you said about them I know I am a mormon so please before you show how stupid you are know first what you are talking about, there is no way a man can call himself a christian and allow millions of children to be killed every year so me where that is christ like please show me how

  40. Bobbi Jo Tedder Ramsey

    If you are an American citizen, weather you voted for him or not-he is your president and for that reason alone you owe him your respect-or maybe unless you are not a mature adult and you cant comprehend all that!

    Does anybody read the bible the tried there way and it didn't work so now he's giving to one of us to set it right, so far so good I'm not in the unemployment line, I'm not saying Barack is the lord and savior,

  42. Kati Meyers

    This country, The United States of America, was founded on religion and God. Why do you think the USA was such a great place to live?! People came to this country to escape their government. Governments that were dictating the way people could act, think, live, believe,,,, etc… Barack=New-aged Hilter, not God, not Jesus, and definitely not a savior.

    Anti-Christ is more like it. God is not supporting abortion or same sex marriage or letting the people of Syria be crushed by an evil empire while has the power to stop it. Blacks love him becuase he is the first of their race to be president I get that – but that does not make him good or God…..there any far more moral black people who could be president if our system was not about big money.

  45. Steve Coppola

    I will agree it was a stupid thing for a candidate to do. That's when the whole incident occurred, when he was a candidate (that's why I thought it was a dead issue-unless it's happened again, in that case it would be incredibly stupid of him.) But no, it is not necessary to place your hand on your heart when singing the national anthem. And he did not swear in on the Koran, you think all those people on the platform wouldn't have noticed? You think Cheney would have allowed that? Oh, wait, it was a hollowed out Bible, right? With a Koran inside, kinda like a holy turducken if they would have put the Torah in there too!

    Taiwa Carroll he gave the green light too kill Osama. That was a tough call. What makes you think he is not a good man? This man has been squeaky clean since he took office. Its a reason why he still is president because the majority of people do think he is a good man.

  52. Demetrius Eliopoulos

    Kati that is simply not true. It was founded because no one wanted to pay taxes to a king overseas.

    I love how crazy people are over Barrack Obama, it really makes pin pointing stupid people easier. He doesn't have to say anything, someone else can just say whatever, and everyone makes a big deal out of it.

    The whole history of these books [the Gospels] is so defective and doubtful that it seems vain to attempt minute enquiry into it: and such tricks have been played with their text, and with the texts of other books relating to them, that we have a right, from that cause, to entertain much doubt what parts of them are genuine. In the New Testament there is internal evidence that parts of it have proceeded from an extraordinary man; and that other parts are of the fabric of very inferior minds. It is as easy to separate those parts, as to pick out diamonds from dunghills.

    Remember Jaime Foxx is a comedian and is subject to say anything for attention and laughs. Apparently he is not very religious, if he was he would not use those words loosely. As a Christian, "Lord and Savior, refers only to Jesus Christ. I would not take what Jaime said seriously.

  66. Jessica Jackson

    COME. ON.
    He's a comedian…& if you watched it (which obviously most of you HAVEN'T) you'd have heard it in context. Way to make a joke, a non-story, a "headline." Ridiculous.

  67. Jessica Jackson

    Lol… I guess not, Russ. It's insane what people will allow themselves to be outraged about when "hearing" about it from someone else. People should learn to do a little research…but THAT would make too much sense. *sigh* 😛

  68. Brandy Niles Glover

    Excuse me for butting in but I would bet that what she means by the Hitler remark is not that he is ready to exterminate a whole group of society but that like Hitler he seems to inspire a very odd type of hero worship in the extreme. Like Hitler, he is an excellent orator but millions of people, like me, scream people this man never told you one thing he would do in a second administration. We don't understand why people hold him in such high reverence. We shake our heads and pray that God will protect our country from socialist policies because we believe these ideals are not the principles on which this country was founded. Jamie foxx's comment just illustrates the hero worship that apparently 1/2 of our country feel for this man. We don't understand it and are afraid of what it means for our beloved country!

  69. Rondy Mccray

    I love u Jamie, so be more careful. That's something I won't joke about. Power of Life and death are in the tongue. Can't speak that into the environment, wether It's a joke or not.

  72. Devlin Niles

    Brandy, just because MORE than half of of our country voted for Obama does not imply, mean or in any other form or fashion state that we WORSHIP him…nor do we consider him a Hero, Lord or Saviour…He was definitely the least worst choice in the past two elections, seeing as how the "other side" seems to want to have Crazy People represent them. Possibly, if Republicans ever nominate a sane, electable individual to run…they might win..As far as your reference to "extreme" I think you should look to your own Party for those folks..
    I seriously doubt you would find many who share Jamie Foxx's opinion. I certainly do not.

    There was a king in the Bible who was exalted as a God then later on his belly burst upon and he was full of worms. It is a dangerous think to do to be exalted as a God. Obama is not God as a matter of fact he is more like the antiChrist and is destroying our country as fast as he can. I thank God I did not vote for him!
