Donald Trump appeared in a White House interview with Fox and Friends Tuesday morning, and he was quick to place the blame for his errors on anyone but himself.
This included former President Obama.
During the interview, Trump discusses Obama, who Fox and Friends notes that Trump “personally get(s) along with,” although Trump is asked how he feels about Obama’s supporters organizing against the new White House. Trump responds that he believes Obama is personally behind the protests — which Sean Spicer and Trump have both pushed as full of paid protesters — although Trump is reminded, “Bush wasn’t going after Clinton, Clinton wasn’t going after Bush.”
“Well, you never know exactly what’s happening behind the scenes … but I think President Obama’s behind it, because his people are certainly behind it. And some of the leaks possibly come from that group. You know, some of the leaks, which are really very serious leaks, because they’re very bad in terms of national security, but I also understand that’s politics. And in terms of him being behind things, that’s politics, and it will probably continue.”
Yes, Trump is talking about the same Barack Obama who has spent the past month windsurfing and getting Starbucks like he owns the place. Obama’s been off enjoying life and moving on with the future while Trump is still somehow campaigning for president and sounding paranoid. Can you imagine one day — in a few decades — when future former President Trump weighs in on the 48th U.S. Commander-in-Chief? He’ll still be rambling on about voter fraud, fake news, leaks, and how angry the Democrats are about losing.
