Barack Obama, speaking at the Obama Foundation summit in Chicago on Monday, strongly suggested that the world has ongoing problems because President Trump is an angry racist with “mommy issues.”
Obama told the crowd that the world “badly needs remaking” and tackling issues as a nation, such as global warming, is a lot easier than it may appear to be.
“The reason we don’t do it,” Obama concluded, still refusing to say the current leader of the free world’s name, “is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism, mommy issues.”
The bitter ex-President wasn’t content with that insult, and suggested that America was a better nation prior to Trump’s entry into the White House.

Speaking to author Dave Eggers, Barack said that if one were to choose a time and place to be born, it’d be right here in America … before Trump.
“You’d choose now – or maybe two years ago,” he said.
Actually, if we could just erase the eight years Obama was in office, America would be in a far better place.
Obama breaks tradition to trash Trump
It’s been an unwritten tradition for presidents past to avoid making comments about their successor, allowing them to cultivate their own legacy and avoiding controversy.
Barack Obama, however, is not like other Presidents, dispensing with any measure of decorum due to a serious lack of class.
While President Trump methodically eliminates Obama’s legacy, itself a detriment to America, the media darling can’t help himself but pop up every now and again to insult Trump.
He has repeatedly whined and claimed he deserves credit for the current booming economy in the U.S.
Fmr. Pres. Obama:
“When you hear about this economic miracle that’s been going on – when the job numbers come out… and suddenly Republicans are saying ‘it’s a miracle.’ I have to kind of remind them actually those job numbers are the same as they were in 2015 and in 2016.” pic.twitter.com/xAUcSG3toY

Obama has also taken jabs at Trump for his contentious relationship with the media, failing to note his own unprecedented threats to the First Amendment, which included spying on reporters and naming one as an “unindicted co-conspirator” when they simply tried doing their job. He also charged more people under the Espionage Act than all other presidents combined.
The former President even took a shot at Trump by comparing his administration to 1930s Germany.

Trump insults aside, Barack Obama continued to show he doesn’t possess the sharp intellect that the media portrayed throughout his eight years in office.
Unintelligent people resort to base arguments that their opponents must surely be racist if they don’t agree with them. And that’s what Obama resorts to, every … single … time.
Discussing the change he believes the world needs right now, Obama claimed some people just don’t put the effort in because they’re racist.
“Do we care about these kids?” he asked. “Because maybe we don’t … They look a little different to us.”
Glass houses and all
Perhaps Obama would be best served by avoiding any commentary on mommy or daddy issues.
In the book, The Other Barack: The Bold and Reckless Life of President Obama’s Father, the former President’s father is described as a neglectful, irresponsible man who was last seen by junior when he was 10.
“He shows up late, he drinks on the job, he has to borrow money and he is asked to leave,” biographer Sally H. Jacobs writes of Obama Sr. after multiple job losses.
Obama’s issues with his father were so exceedingly integral in his upbringing that his memoir, Dreams From My Father, is described as “a yearning of sorts, an effort to make some sense of their father’s character and complex legacy.”
Can you imagine if President Trump told Obama his presidency was garbage because he had ‘daddy issues?’ What do you think the media would say to that?
