Barack Obama and Donald Trump have a chilly relationship.
That is no secret.
But Barack Obama just crossed the line by insulting Donald Trump in this disgusting way.
One tradition in American politics is the previous President returning to the White House to attend a ceremony where his successor unveils his predecessor’s official White House portrait.
Barack Obama is destroying the American custom.
In an exclusive report, NBC revealed that Obama will not come to the White House for his portrait ceremony until Donald Trump is out of office.
NBC reported “this modern ritual won’t be taking place between Obama and President Donald Trump, according to people familiar with the matter. And if Trump wins a second term in November, it could be 2025 before Obama returns to the White House to see his portrait displayed among every U.S. president from George Washington to Bush.”
“Obama, for his part, has no interest in participating in the post-presidency rite of passage so long as Trump is in office, the people familiar with the matter said,” NBC also reported.
The only two times anyone can remember there being no public ceremony was when Jackie Kennedy attended a private event in 1971 and Jimmy Carter – for reasons unknown – did not show in 1984.
Barack Obama has already demonstrated a stunning lack of class when dealing with his successor.
Obama turned two different commencement speeches into political rallies by baselessly attacking President Trump’s response to the coronavirus.
Now Obama is debasing the office of the presidency by setting the standard that only President’s of the same political party can share in what used to be bipartisan customs of the office.
