Here’s EXACTLY why Obama is “rattled” by Trump (it’s PATHETIC)
Bill Clinton once said, “there is just one small step from legacy to lame duck” It would appear President Barack Obama is the embodiment of that quote. I find it rather odd that a sitting U.S. President would make comment about an opposing party presidential candidate while attending a global summit. Then again, it is Barack Obama.
As reported by Fox News:
Nothing stops politics this election season — not even the water’s edge.
While traveling overseas on official business Thursday, President Obama couldn’t resist wading into political matters back home, sparking controversy by saying foreign leaders are “rattled” by the rise of presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.
Obama, saying leaders have “good reason” to feel that way, made the remarks on the sidelines of a Group of Seven economic summit in Japan.
“They are rattled by it — and for good reason,” Obama said. “Because a lot of the proposals he has made display either ignorance of world affairs, or a cavalier attitude, or an interest in getting tweets and headlines.”
He contrasted that with proposals he said thoughtfully address what’s required to keep the U.S. safe and “to keep the world on an even keel.”
Trump, though, brushed off Obama’s put-down later in the day. Speaking ahead of an address in North Dakota, Trump said: “That’s a good thing, I love that word.”
“In business, when you rattle someone, that’s good,” Trump said. “If they’re rattled, in a friendly way, that’s a good thing … not a bad thing.”
Folks, I just have to laugh at President Obama’s statement. If one were to assess the foreign policy and national security faux pas of Obama, you’d find the American people quite “rattled” — and for good reason.
