Donald Trump: ‘Obama never used the Oval, but Trump is different’

Embed from Getty Images

El Presidente de Baby Fists grows more insane by the day. I truly believe that Donald Trump simply *senses* that there is trouble coming from Robert Mueller, because Trump is just too stupid to actually understand how the walls are closing in on him. He has the instincts of a cornered, wounded animal – stupidly lashing out, throwing tantrums, making nonsensical arguments and talking about himself in the third person. He’s also obsessed with Barack Obama. We’ve known this for some time. The Washington Post has a new story detailing Trump’s Obama obsession, jealousy and pettiness – go here for the whole depressing piece. Oh, and Trump won’t stop lying about how he is doing “more” than Obama, all as Trump works to undo everything Obama did during his eight years. But here’s the dumbest part of the story:

Upon becoming president, Trump started to show off the trappings of his job, taking visitors into the Roosevelt Room and the Cabinet Room. He quickly alighted upon a favorite last stop, ushering guests into the Oval Office.

“Obama never used the Oval, but Trump is different,” the president would say, referring to himself in the third person as he often does, according to people who have witnessed the tours.

As his guests marveled at the space, Trump would press them, asking if Obama had ever shown them the West Wing’s inner sanctum.

When he was invariably told no, Trump appeared to beam with pride.

[From The Washington Post]

Obama never used the Oval, but Trump is different
Obama never used the Oval, but Trump is different
Obama never used the Oval, but Trump is different
Obama never used the Oval, but Trump is different
Obama never used the Oval, but Trump is different
Obama never used the Oval, but Trump is different
Obama never used the Oval, but Trump is different
Obama never used the Oval, but Trump is different
Obama never used the Oval, but Trump is different

That’s what Trump will be muttering to himself on a loop as he dragged off to the federal penitentiary.

    Obama never used the Oval Office for cheap photo ops with journalists; he used it for its purpose: working for the citizens of the US. Obama always looked comfortable in the Oval Office, which he treated with respect. Trump just looks stiff and lost.

    • Snappyfish says:

      Obama also never used it to host top Russian spies while excluding the American media. This buffoon has such a hard on for Obama. It’s because he knows he will never ever measure up. Obama will go down as one of the best American Presidents of all time. Go back to be he mess he inherited when he was elected and how he left his country. Jobs, growing economy, surging stock market, a better reputation around the world, beloved….

      The circus peanut fraud who is the current occupant of the Oval will go down as a Neolithic incompetent who (I’m hoping here) was indicted for money laundering and treasonable acts.

    • Indiana Joanna says:

      Yes to this.

      Peter Souza’s new book of Obama’s presidency has several photos of his entertaining guests in the Oval Office. But his photos (like the one of the lityle boy touching Obama’s hair are really beautiful and inclusive.

      baby fists is nuts.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Today, Trump pressured Sessions to investigate Obama in relation to Russian meddling. This is completely out of line, and yet it is getting so little attention.

  2. PunkyMomma says:

    Is Cheeto referring to an oval potty?

  3. Kate Widdleton says:

    Omg he needs to stop referring to himself in the third person. You’re not a God, d-bag.

    And keep Obama’s name out of your mouth. Eventually “Obama and/or Hillary” isn’t going to fire up even your dumb base anymore.

  4. justcrimmles says:

    One of my conservative cousins recently remarked, after I told him how much student loan debt my husband is in, how that’s “Obama’s fault.” My husband graduated college in 2003. And Obama certainly had zero to do with his college experience. The cognitive dissonance is astounding.

    • Rapunzel says:

      I feel ya. I had some Trumpster neighbors blame Hillary for their crop earning less money this year. WTF?

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      They hate liberal elites at least in part for being educated. Then they turn around and engage in complicated mental gymnastics to make their desired narrative fit with their (obviously wrong) world view. Honestly, many conservatives make themselves look far worse than liberals ever could. And they make the case for electing intelligent, thoughtful, educated elites that much stronger with their nonsense.

      • justcrimmles says:

        @Bearcat, yup. My father, once a rational, middle of the road voter, is so deep in Conservative Kool-aid, the greatness of comrade Sunset Stalin is about all he will talk about. His Facebook feed looks like a propaganda page. He helped my sister buy a car this weekend, and apparently gave his Pro-Dump talk to the salesman, who happened to be a black man who met his comments with the kind of laughter that suggests “since you’re so obviously crazy, you won’t notice this laugh isn’t genuine.” He truly believes in the supposed goodness of this orange sack of shit, and how everything is the fault of Hillary, the DNC, or just liberals, full stop. When his time comes, he will not be going to one of the nicer homes if I have it my way. (There’s always my brother and his wife though, who are about as bad as he is. Family time is so fun, I can’t handle it and try my best to avoid.)

      • Kitten says:

        @ justcrimmles – Your father is a victim of Fox News. We cannot emphasize often enough how much damage that network is doing to the voting populous. I’m of the belief that they are truly brainwashing people. I’ve seen it happen with my uncle, who was once a normal/rational man and who is now on the Fox News Train to Crazy Town like my aunt. It’s easy to blame the ignorance of the Right and harder to acknowledge that relatively fair and thoughtful people can still be susceptible to propaganda.

        I’m sorry you’re dealing with this–it must make for a really challenging relationship with a loved one.

      • Kelly says:

        Fox news is awful. Both of my parents used to be independent to democratic voting people. Now both of them have soaked up the kool-aid and think Trump is better than “Killary”. I was horrified last fall when my mom was visiting and had no clue what I meant by Nazis in Charlottesville. The fact that she had never even heard of the event, whether it was good or bad coverage, was incredibly disturbing to me. I begged her to add some more news channels to her Fox viewing schedule.

      • Juls says:

        My Dad and his wife: same. All of his children and their spouses are super liberal. At Christmas he had the TV tuned in to Faux news the entire time. Blech. I cracked a joke about Trump and I thought my stepmother was gonna have an aneurysm. There was no drama or arguing though, thank goodness. And it’s actually “entertainment news channel” they cannot even claim to be real news, but try telling that to their viewing base.

      • Shambles says:

        Is there any hope, you guys?? Can these people ever be deprogrammed? Do you think if Sean Hannity et al were forced to go on air, admit that they’ve been making shit up for several years and apologize, people would ever see the light? Ugh. It’s so depressing.

      • BearcatLawyer says:

        @justcrimmles – thoughts and prayers may not do much, but I am adding you to my prayer list anyway. For the car salesman story alone!

      • justcrimmles says:

        @Kitten, most days, I daydream about bugging his house, but in reverse, so that at night, I can play some sort of subliminal deprogramming tracks, and undo what that gd Glenn Beck started. Since my mom passed, he’s used some of the insurance money to buy himself a massive new camping trailer, which he’s planning to live in (it’s nicer than their house, really) so this might now be easier than previously thought. If only I could do the same for the other 98% of my family 😂😭😭

        @Bearcat, thoughts and prayers aren’t my cup of tea, but I’ll never turn them down regardless! 😘

      • Tiffany :) says:

        My dad has drank the Fox News Kool-Aid. My mom has to whisper her true political feelings to me on the phone. She doesn’t get into it with him, because he is so irrational.

        Re: Trump, my dad always says like “He wasn’t my guy. I voted for someone else in the primaries”, AS IF that some how makes up for him supporting all of politicians that enable the Trump agenda.

      • Veronica says:

        Just an FYI, I know of people who have used parental controls and blocked Fox Fake News and told their parents it was no longer available on cable. Dishinest, yes, but so is Fox.
        And arguing with a Teump cult member is like trying to talk to a monkey while he is throwing crap at you. Nothing going on in the brain.

      • Flan says:

        True. They hate making an effort, since they were raised to think they were entitled to everything just for being Americans. They then get jealous of people who do work to get an education.

        This might be part why they hate the Florida shooting survivors who speak out. They are so clearly much more eloquent and intelligent than they are. So they smear them, which is a new low. And Don Jr has even liked one of the tweets that smeared them.

      • madonami says:

        @Shambles: Yes, I think there’s hope. I think it will take a while and be seriously ugly. But I also think, when all is said and done, this whole mess will take down what the GOP has become, Fox, all of it. There will still be left and right, but I think the GOP will either disband and become a new (or multiple new) parties, with a very different platform than they’ve had, or some other party will rise and take its place as the second major party.

        At this point, I think the Fox-iverse is basically Limbaugh and Hannity. I honestly think Hannity is either going to get caught in Mueller’s net, or some other sort of trouble, and he’ll be gone. Limbaugh is not enough to sustain the Fox-iverse.

        Fully half of the US did not show up to vote in ’16. I think lots of people who usually sit on the sidelines are paying attention now, and they are not having this sh*t either, including Republicans. I think this GOP will be decimated at the midterms, largely by Dems, but also possibly by some moderate/sane Rs. And once this GOP is out of office, there will be no quarter for them. Done.

      • MoreSalt says:

        The Brainwashing of my Dad is a movie available through Amazon Prime that is really worth watching. It’s got its flaws but shines some light on wtf is happening to our parents/families.

    • lightpurple says:

      Ahem, Obama is responsible for: all student loan debt; ISIS; swine flu; Hurricane Katrina; the US PATRIOT Act; the September 11, 2001 Al Queda attacks on US landmarks; the My Lai massacre; the Korean War; the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand; the sinking of the Maine; the Spanish Inquisition.

      Hillary Clinton is responsible for: all missing emails, including that one you think you got from your dentist; failed crops; Benghazi; Watergate; the Spanish flu outbreak in 1918; McKinley’s assassination.

    • lucy2 says:

      It is amazing how people can convince themselves of something that is so clearly untrue. If we ever manage to break this cycle of insanity, there’s going to be a lot of psychology papers written on how brainwashed a good portion of our population managed to get.

  5. Nicole says:

    Um that’s because he used the Oval to…work. You know like he was supposed to. Not inviting every piece of trash with enough $$ to stroll through there.

  6. HollyGo says:

    Have you EVER met a person that you could stand for even a few minutes that spoke of themselves in the third person?
    He is such a classic narcissist. And it’s so sad because we are normalising narcissism now. When in reality it’s just a hellish diagnosis for everyone around such people.

    • Esmom says:

      Ha, I’ve said that before. A few years ago my local newspaper had an interview with a new (highly paid) official at city hall who kept referring to himself in the third person. As I predicted from that alone, he didn’t last too long. Thankfully people caught on fairly quickly that while he talked a good game, he had zero idea how to run a small town.

      Trump is the same way, with no idea how the real world works. He thinks he can BS his way through anything and somehow people will be fooled. It’s scary how many people are fooled by him, considering how very obvious his incompetence is.

  7. grabbyhands says:

    It’s funny, but at the same time not.

    What he might be capable of doing as retaliation for feeling like he is being attacked scares me and I no longer believe there are any adults in charge at the White House – just a group of increasingly nervous criminals who would do anything not to be in Mueller’s spotlight. If there are this many compulsive, sh*tty decisions being made when they ‘re holding all the cards, what is waiting for everyone when it really starts hitting the fan? Assuming 45 doesn’t just can everyone in the investigation first-which will happen at some point.

  8. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    I don’t think he is actually insane. I think he is a narcissistic sociopath who has ADHD. He also eats poorly, doesn’t sleep, and is stupid, but not insane. He is not close to being insane.

    If nothing else, he is having his minnions but this story out there to set up an insanity or diminished capacity defense when they haul him off to jail; it won’t work.

    • FredsMother says:

      Yeah, I need the insane narrative to stop. Because when Mueller comes for the Orange Twat I want no pleas of mental incompetence or insanity. He is sane. He is simply vile, disgusting, racist, corrupt traitor. But sane and aware of his crimes and the risk and punishment if caught.

  9. Rapunzel says:

    Some people can get away with the “referring to myself in the third person” shtick. Like The Rock. DT is…not The Rock.

  10. Bucketbot says:

    So are a lot of red states really turning blue? This would mean that the state minister who reps the state in the central government (i understand that is the congress) will soon be mostly democrats right?

    • Laughysaphy says:

      We won’t really know that until the midterm elections in November. What we are seeing are a lot of special local elections being won by Democrats in districts in states that have normally been held by Republicans. Some, like in Kentucky and Alabama, were won by Democrats in districts that voted overwhelmingly for Trump in the presidential election. If this trend continues, it may be possible for the Democrats to regain a majority in Congress.

    • lightpurple says:

      Turning purple, not necessarily blue. The Florida legislature did itself no favors yesterday. We’ll see more states going like Virginia where only 1 vote separates them and they have to reach compromises or we’ll see legislatures of one party paired with governors of another party. GOP is losing lots of small special elections in the states, which, as we have recently seen, will affect their ability to gerrymander.

      • lucy2 says:

        There’s also some gerrymandering being undone – Pennsylvania’s districting map just got redone by the courts and I think North Carolina is being worked on too.

      • Veronica says:

        Yeah, but that’s up in the air because the Republican legislature here is attempting to fight the hell out of it despite the Supreme Court going “lol no thanks.” They’ve already tried IMPEACHING the five Democratic court officials and barring them from office to stop the redistricting. Keep in mind that the fact that PA is gerrymandered to hell has been an issue for almost twenty years. It’s going to get uglier here before it gets better. I just hope it’s sorted out by September.

  11. RBC says:

    Why is he so obsessed with President Obama? Mentions his name constantly and his actions since taking office seem to be directed at erasing anything that Obama did during his eight years as president. It is just scary the level of hatred 45 has against Obama

    • HK9 says:

      Because he knows at the end of the day, a black man did the job better (yes he is that racist and petty) and Trump’s failed presidency will be enshrined in history for all time.

    • Aiobhan Targaryen says:

      Because Obama decided to make fun of Donald Trump at a correspondence dinner after putting up with Donald’s racist stunts for months. Obama publically humiliated him at that dinner and he never forgot it.

      Dump never takes into account that he started this whole mess with his birther stunts and Obama lightly clapped back at him. Obama never would have even paid attention to him if not for Dump being a racist stunt clown.

      Dump started it but it looks like Obama is going to have the last laugh.

    • MellyMel says:

      What they said, but also because Obama is beloved and respected by many people all over the world and in Trump’s tiny little brain he feels like he deserves that as well.

      • Kitten says:

        Exactly. It’s not just that Obama’s black, it’s the fact that he is everything Trump is not: charming, charismatic, confident, self-possessed, thoughtful, caring, empathetic, genuine, intelligent, articulate, witty, handsome, and yes, very much beloved. For Trump, it’s just insult to grievous injury that he’s black.

        Trump is just a f*cking loser who has spent his life coasting by on his last name and daddy’s money. His professional career has been a series of failed business ventures and f*ck-ups, only to culminate in the most disastrous POTUS in the history of our country.

        I mean, it’s no wonder that the man all but hides from the public, clinging to his insecure tweets, his Faux News and his fast food. He’s a f*ck-up, a mess of a person and Obama is a success story–a great man who rightfully earned every one of his accomplishments.

        Ok that made me feel a better lol.

      • lucy2 says:

        That’s what I’ve always said too, Kitten – he’s so insecure when comparing himself to Obama, who is everything Dump thinks he’s entitled to be. It’s so obvious and would be sad if he weren’t such a vile monster.

      • Esmom says:

        Thank you, Kitten. It made me feel better, lol. And the portrait you paint makes it so clear to me that it’s not really Trump who is the problem, it’s the portion of our electorate who put him there — along with the craven politicians who are now enabling him — who are the ones to be distressed about.

    • Veronica says:

      The same reason the rest of angry white America is – he’s a black American who got into office over a respected white man, then proceeded to accomplish pushing through a very significant piece of legislation.

  12. Juls says:

    OMG that header pic. It looks like he’s trying to take a dump but all those cheeseburgers have clogged his colon.

  13. trollontheloose says:

    Imagine him with wet hair and no orange make-up… just imagine that. I bet you Homer Simpson is more bangable than this turd. I never met his guy but how could one be around him without wanting to vomit. Even a handshake will require all the bleach in the world (and a Radioactivity Deactivation Shower)..

  14. CharlieBouquet says:

    Gross, that looks like his climax face, stabs eyes with kid’s crayon.

  15. Rapunzel says:

    More delusional Obama attacks, with a swipe at JeffY Beau:

    Donald J. Trump
    @realDonaldTrump
    5m
    Question: If all of the Russian meddling took place during the Obama Administration, right up to January 20th, why aren’t they the subject of the investigation? Why didn’t Obama do something about the meddling? Why aren’t Dem crimes under investigation? Ask Jeff Session!

    • Elkie says:

      So if I conspire with a bunch of crooks to steal a car, the police investigations should focus on charging whoever owned it at the time?

      My head hurts. Also, it was Mitch “Yertle the Turtle” McConnell who effectively blocked Obama from warning about the Russian meddling. Ask him!

  16. incognito says:

    Hard to give tours of the Oval Office when you’re actually working.

  17. seraph7 says:

    Why doesn’t he get on with governing ALL his constituents instead of constantly having Hilary and Obama’s name in his mouth? He wanted to be President, be a grown man and start acting like it.

    It is so stressful watching this from afar. I hope you come out the other side and he and his grifter family finally get some consequences for their actions. I just hope I Iive long enough to see him dragged out of the WH by his combover. Resignation isn’t enough any more. He has terrorised too many people.

    • Indiana Joanna says:

      Seraph7, I don’t believe baby fists wanted to be president. He ran out of revenge, spite and the impulse to retaliate for people mocking him. He was ready to return to private life where he would have continued his constant verbal abuse and attempts to demean everyone. His running was about settling scores with people who had hurt his thin skinned baby fist feelings.

      That’s why the sheer chutzpah of his hideous behaviour continues into his presidency. For him, it’s all about his weak, sad self esteem.

  18. Betsy says:

    Presidents don’t always use the Oval Office; they have private office space that is less formal. I wonder if Donald even knows it exists, or if that’s where they set up the adult daycare.

  19. harla says:

    I love that first photo of Trump! It’ll keep my laughing all day, thanks Kaiser!!

  20. Lorelai says:

    It is still surreal to me that this man is actually the President of the United States.

  21. Darla says:

    WHAT is this moron talking about? I can’t stand it, every day it gets worse and worse.

  22. Darla says:

    WHAT is this moron talking about? I can’t stand it, every day it gets worse and worse.

  23. noway says:

    Trump is a social science experiment gone awry. He’s like the mystery tupperware in the back of the refrigerator with it’s lovely color mold. He exhausts me and is starting to make me physically ill. However, celebitchy always makes me smile with the craziest pictures of him. I know there are a plethora of them, but you always choose the best.

  24. Jaded says:

    Manafort and Gates are in deeper sh*t. Indictments have been served on a separate issue, likely the $16 million in loans Manafort received AFTER the campaign received from a Trump advisor who runs a bank that specializes in low-cost mortgage loans to military workers. Mueller’s team said that Manafort obtained the loans using “doctored profit and loss statements” that overstated “by millions of dollars” the income of his consulting business and home which were used for collateral. Hmmmm….who’s going to flip first – Manafort or Gates?

  25. Eric says:

    The header pic of Emperor Zero looks like he just sharted (again).

    He’s really going to shit when Mr Mueller comes knockin’

  26. WendyNerd says:

    There are like a billion pods of Obama in the Oval Offiice.

  27. Cara says:

    That first picture of Trump is awesome. He looks like a toddler throwing a fit.

  28. raincoaster says:

    He uses it every day to take a dump on the Constitution.

  29. madonami says:

    I do think it’s important – esp for “conservatives” – the sane ones who are left – to not get too caught up in blaming all of this on Trump. I mean, by all means, blame the sh*t out of Trump. BUT, we have to *for real* deal with all of the -isms that made Trump possible, a symptom as well as a cause. I see folks like Frum, Kristol, Weaver, etc., bemoaning the state of their party. AS IF THIS CRAP HASN’T BEEN SIGNATURE GOP BS FOR DECADES. Please. AND some of the most sexist men I know are Dems. The -isms are basically the official fcking platform of the GOP now, but they are also still very present on the left. See: Bernie Bros.

    I saw an interesting tweet yesterday. Some Dem (I forget who) said, I’m paraphrasing, Stop saying we (left and right) have differences of opinion. No. There IS right and wrong. We (left) are right. We are better (morally, policy-wise, etc.); they are worse. (I don’t think this was always the case. But it is the case with this particular GOP.) The person was saying, no, actually, with this GOP, there are not Both Sides, two different but valid takes on things. Right now, there is Right and Wrong, Good and Bad, Moral/Decent and Not. I think a lot of the media knows this by now, but b/c they’re so trained in Both Sides, they don’t have a great model, or comfort level with just saying, yeah, this is Good & Wise, that is Bad & Wrong, Period. They seem to be getting closer though. It’s taken way too damn long, but they do seem closer.

  30. Bread and Circuses says:

    To Trump, the Oval Office is a trophy to be shown off. A little like Melania.

    Obama actually used it as an office. If you see a photo of him in it, it’s obvious that he was using the desk as his work desk.

    If you see Trump in there, he’s posing as if he works there. He obviously does not work there.

    Because he does not work. He golfs, does photo ops and yells at people, and fails to read his security briefing.
