There is no love lost between Donald Trump and Barack Obama.
But even with that being true, Obama still goes out of his way to try to sabotage the President.
And Barack Obama insulted Donald Trump in one way that will leave you red with rage.
There is a long-standing American tradition that past Presidents who just left office do not criticize their successor.
Barack Obama threw that right out the window in his thirst for revenge against Donald Trump.
Obama’s latest swipe at Donald Trump occurred at a tech conference where Obama said it was “helpful” if Presidents didn’t watch cable news or use social media.
Former President Barack Obama implicitly criticized President Donald Trump’s media habits in a speech on Wednesday.
During a Splunk tech conference, Obama said it was helpful as president to have a diverse staff offering a wide range of advice on the issues of the day.
“The other thing that is helpful is not watching TV or reading social media,” he added pointedly, according to Axios.
He warned about people living in “filter bubbles” of information, made worse by social media.
“That’s not healthy for a democracy and it’s not healthy between countries,” he said. “That’s how wars get started and bad things happen.
This was a clear dig at Trump, whom the Left caricatures as a coach potato that spends his day watching Fox News and tweeting.
This is – of course – a lie.
During his presidency, Obama often complained about his cable news coverage.
Obama routinely attacked Fox News and chided other media outlets for not focusing enough on his achievements.
What drives Obama to undermine Trump is that Trump is wiping away Obama’s failed legacy and piling up successes where Obama failed.
