Obama Whines That Trump’s Presidency ‘Exceeded’ His Worst Fears

Former President Barack Obama spoke out on Tuesday night during an interview with late night television host Stephen Colbert to once again rip into President Donald Trump, this time saying that his presidency “exceeded” his worst fears.

Obama Blasts Trump

Colbert, a radical liberal himself, fondly remembered fantasizing just after the 2016 election about all the ways that Trump could abuse the “dignity of the office” during his first term.

“Were you having a similar feeling in that moment?” Colbert asked.

“Yeah. Yeah, it was a concern,” Obama responded, at which time Colbert asked if these fears were “borne out.”

“Exceeded,” Obama said bluntly.

The former president spent much of the interview bashing the current occupant of the White House with everything that he has. It should be noted that there is a long standing tradition in this country that former presidents do not publicly attack their successors, but clearly, Obama has no interest in adhering to that.

“You couldn’t make up some of the stuff that you’re seeing,” Obama said. “And it is to the detriment of the country. But as you said. It runs contrary to what would have been smart politics if the Republicans wanted to maintain the White House.”

Obama Doubles Down

Obama also described Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic as “shambolic.”

“This would have been hard for anyone,” he rightfully admitted, but he then went on to rip apart Trump and his administration for allegedly ignoring science and not sending a consistent message about masks to the public.

“Had we just taken those steps, there is no doubt we would have saved some lives, and ironically, the economy would be better,” Obama said.

Unsurprisingly, Obama heaped praise on his former Vice President Joe Biden, as well as on the Democrat’s running mate, Kamala Harris.

“Joe is going to be great. Kamala is going to be great,” he said. “We’ve got the potential of returning to a presidency that is actually paying attention and trying to do right by all people and not just some.”

Colbert agreed with Obama, as per usual, saying, “A return to the stability and what’s that word — competency — of your eight years.”
