Donald Trump wants Barack Obama to testify before Congress about Obamagate, lmao

Barack Obama greets the media in NYC

Barack Obama has had to do so little to get under the Orange One’s skin. It’s sort of hilarious. Obama is probably sitting at home, watching The Last Dance and chewing Nicorette while Donald Trump is rage-tweeting about how Obama needs to testify before Congress about OBAMAGATE and “unmasking” Mike Flynn or something, who can keep up?

The joke here is multifold – the more Trumpers whine about Mike Flynn’s unmasking, the more that case is examined and the more comes out showing Mike Flynn was even more crooked, compromised and treasonous than originally believed. Also, Trump is setting the precedent – a current president can demand that his predecessor testify before Congress. Gee, Baby Fists did not think this through.

Meanwhile, Obama was chatting with former staffers and they leaked some additional info about what he’s been up to:

The age of social distancing can be a bit of a struggle even for former presidents — just ask Barack Obama. During a recent call with some of his former administration staffers, Obama, 58, said that not having sports to watch during the novel coronavirus pandemic was “driving me nuts,” according to audio of the call obtained by Yahoo News.

At least daughters Malia and Sasha “are stuck having dinner with me,” he said. The call first made news because of the sharp words Obama had to share about the Trump administration, expressing dismay over the federal government’s decision to drop its case against disgraced former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

I’m also going nuts without new tennis. We would have been knee-deep into the European clay season, SOB. I also felt like LeBron and the Lakers were going to have a really good season. But I’m sure Obama enjoys having all of his ladies home with him. HE is probably driving THEM crazy. He totally has the “let me give you a fifteen minute lecture on the history of toothpaste” dad energy.

    What is this f***ing Obamagate ? What is it ?

    • Darla says:

      There’s no such thing. The conman invented it out of whole cloth and news outlets dutifully report on it. A true, the emperor is wearing no clothes moment. But where the little boy to tell us he’s naked?

      • Bettyrose says:

        No way Al Capone was Trump level stupid. He did a lot more than bully people to their knees, nor did he start his massive empire with Daddy’s money. Not the point here but Capone was likely a brilliant strategist. Why compare him to Trump?

      • Darla says:

        Sorry I did not mean to offend any Capone stans.

      • ivy Bart says:

        Let go with Fedo from the Godfather 😆😆😆😆

      • Bettyrose says:

        LOL. It’s true isn’t it? I must be a Capone stan without even realizing.😁

    • Jerusha says:

      Just more gibberish from the insanely jealous, tiny brained, tiny dicked, malignant narcissistic dumbass donald trump.
      Even Miz Linds pulled his head out of trump’s colon long enough to say he’s not going to do it.

    • Becks1 says:

      It’s nothing. he literally made it up (or one of his conspiracy networks made it up and h e’s just running with it.)

      He wont even tell people what it is because its so huge that apparently everyone should know.

    • Tate says:

      It is nothing. It is the insane person in the White House trying to distract from his absolute failure at preparing America for this virus that has now killed 85,000.

    • VS says:

      Orange man is an idiot! Lindsey G is a snake but he understands politics and I don’t give him a lot of credits but he is not as idiotic as Trump is. There is no way they are going to touch or even go after Obama especially after what the Senate has excused for Trump……..I thought Bush Jr was bad; Trump is the worst president ever in our entire history…….

      Trump is trying to rile up his base of inbred racists and idiots!!!

    • fluffybunny says:

      I’m wondering the same thing. What exactly are they accusing him of? What did he do that was “illegal”?

    • smurf says:

      Watch the movie “Wag the Dog” with Dustin Hoffman, Robert de Niro and Anne Heche. That’s what Trump is doing with Obamagate. It doesn’t matter what it is, it just exists to distract.

    • Esmom says:

      It’s “but her emails” 2.0. See also: Benghazi. Remember how outraged they were about the deaths of FOUR Americans?

    • Oh-Dear says:

      it was put out there by the universe so that we could get the #yomamagate responses which have been FABULOUS!

      honestly though, on top of trying to manipulate and deflect by putting out crazy stories to see what lands, I think 45 uses key phrases to get the bots going and to signal Russia.

    • Summer says:

      I’ve been working 1 and 1/2 jobs from home, which I’m grateful for. But it’s been 11-12 hour days at times so I come to celebitchy to decompress. I’ve avoided most news cycles since 2018 because I truly feel that we are in the upside down. I haven’t really looked into why Obama is being attacked, but it’s truly the last thing we need right now. What is this about? I don’t get it.

  2. Eleonor says:

    One of the weirdest thing is: how is it possible there ever was an Obamagate and the WORLD PRESS didn’t know it? Except maybe some website where 2+2= 5 of course.
    An still the question: why Trump mental health is not checked?
    Why nobody can stop him?

  3. Ange says:

    I bet Joe Biden won’t put up with this marlarky.

  4. Lightpurple says:

    Lindsey Graham knows damn well the optics of him, sweat dripping off his jowls, excited voice squeaking with false rage, questioning the cool, calm, eloquent Obama would not bode well for his re-election campaign

    • sassafras says:

      Exactly. Obama’s testimony would rivet the nation and he would be able to decimate the Republicans with the bare minimum of words. Remember his debate with Romney? “Please proceed, Senator.” It would be hours of free advertising reminding the American people (and more importantly independents and Obama-Trump swing voters) what a calm, intelligent, well-spoken President looks like.

      • Meghan says:

        I MISS HIM SO MUCH!!!!

        I am so glad I can get my MObama fix every week with her story telling episodes. My son is loving them!

  5. Sean says:

    What would he admit to in his testimony?

    “No sir, I did not cause this pandemic but I am black.”

    • Spikey says:

      Buahahahaha! Brilliant, @ Sean.
      “No, Sir, I did not cause this pandemic, but I am more popular than you.”

      OT I watched Becoming yesterday on Netflix and I shouldn’t read about the Obamas for a few days. I’m *this* close to leaving my husband and begging Michelle / Barack / both of them to marry me. How are they so awesome?!

  6. Bettyrose says:

    Obamagate = broke Trump’s widdle heart by not inviting him to the cool table.

  7. LouBear says:

    Do you know what must drive Trump mad? Is that Obama has so many more followers than him on Twitter….

  8. Chelle says:

    I feel like I say this every single day but I AM SO SORRY FOR YOUR ENTIRE COUNTRY!

    • JanetDR says:

      It’s always appreciated!

    • mara says:

      Thank you. Our hearts are broken here. This insanity needs to end. My WWII vet Dad and Gulf War vet husband are spinning in their graves right now.

  9. Becks1 says:

    I kind of love/hate when he rage-tweets and someone like Mia Farrow just responds with “people are dying.”

    Because that’s it, isn’t it? People are dying and he doesn’t care enough to prevent those deaths and he knows his poll numbers are dropping and he is so out of his league and the only thing for him to do is rage-tweet about freaking Obama.

  10. Chica1971 says:

    Pete Souza on Obamagate moments. I think it was the tan suit or crying with Sandy Hooks parents.

  11. Chickaletta says:

    The best thing the Republican party could do for themselves is sit Donny Diaper Baby the eff down and explain to him why he will be a one term president and not seek re-election. Former President Sunkist can rant and rave for the rest of his life about how the toll on his health was too great and he was walking away because the “liberal, false news reporting, gay homosexual, communist, immigrant loving Democrats who hate America” would never let him accomplish anything, the system is broken, etc etc. He could play victim his entire life and maybe write some picture books about everything he totally really would have done in office if not for Nasty Nancy.

    I genuinely think most Republican politicians would be much happier with Trump out of office.

    • Who ARE these people? says:

      The Republican Party has been all-in with Trump since he became the nominee and they have been getting everything they want … except at election time 😉

    • Sean says:

      Former GOP strategist and Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson recently appeared o a podcast. He said about 60% of Republican leaders hate Trump and think he’s destroying our country. However, they don’t speak out against hi because they’re afraid of him and what his supporters may do.

      Here’s the interview:

      • phaedra7 says:

        Are they afraid that Take-A-💩 minions will go on a crazy-rioting rampage and start annihilating innocent people? Or what?
        (Not giving anybody any damn ideas)

  12. Chica1971 says:

    Don’t forget to tune in for graduation on Saturday night. Being carried on all stations including Fox. I’m guessing the Coronavirus briefing will start again on Sunday too

    • Bettyrose says:

      Definitely going to watch because I’m really interested in hearing Obama’s words of inspiration. Trump’s likely rage stroke is just a side benefit.

    • VS says:

      I will definitely tune in for that!!!!!! knowing trump will be dying of envy is the cherry on top of the cake

    • A Guest says:

      Oh, that ought to send Orange Foolius into apoplexy.


  13. La says:

    Awfully big words from someone who isn’t brave enough to go actually toe to toe with Obama and will only subtweet him. I’d love to see Obama unleash on Orange Twitler and his bullshit but I know he has too much class (and better things to do) than to ever bother.

  14. ReneeM says:

    If Orange man wants to hold him accountable then HE needs to be accountable. If the Orange one doesn’t , then neither does Obama. Be careful what you ask for Old man.

  15. Chica1971 says:

    If Obama has to testify in front of Congress, it’s opens up Trump to doing so in a Democratic administration too. Precedent can be a tricky thing

  16. Bucky says:

    OK. Please force Obama into a prime time spotlight, under oath, to remind us that we once had a president who wasn’t illiterate and suffering from dementia. A president who wasn’t just impeached is going to have credibility that Trump can never have. The news would use soundbites from the testimony for many months to come. It would be a windfall for the Biden campaign.

    GOP would be absolutely panicked of what Obama would expose and the avalanche of coverage it would get. Graham said “That would open up a can of worms and for a variety of reasons I don’t think that’s a good idea.” Not a good idea = “catastrophic for me and the rest of us who sold our souls to the devil under this administration.”

    • JennEricaMS says:

      Graham also said something along the lines of, “ I understand President Trump’s frustration but be careful what you wish for”. I wonder if that was a thinly veiled threat by Graham? Not that Trump would catch it, of course, as it would need to be spelled out with crayons and very simple words.

      • Bucky says:

        If you committed a bunch of murders and blamed most of them on some other guy who happens to have all the evidence needed to get you locked away for life but mercifully never gave evidence against you, would you accuse that guy of a traffic infraction and beg the police to take a statement from him? Especially a statement in which the accessories to your crimes -the only people protecting you- would also be incriminated? That’s suicidal of Trump.

        Obama is more powerful than Trump politically, even out of office. Trump is too short sighted to think past his next tweet. Bringing Obama in to testify would compromise the freedom of many in the grand old party and they would drop Trump like a hot potato to save themselves.

        Trump only has a couple months left in office. Everyone else involved in his dirt wants a career, and to not be in jail, well after Trump is gone. So, yeah, be careful what you wish for.

  17. Who ARE these people? says:

    Trump took the Obama bait of that “leaked” phone call.

    Media are taking the bait of Trump’s new accusation though…watch it blow up into one of their unprovable “controversies.”

  18. Jerusha says:

    Just google-images-inauguration crowds 2009 and 2017. Couldn’t post here, but it explains trump’s insane jealousy of Obama.

  19. grabbyhands says:

    I want to find it funny, but I can’t.

    He’s becoming more unhinged by the day and every time he gets pushed into a corner, he lashes out wildly like a spoiled child. Except his tantrums have devastating effects.

    I think he will keep screaming about this until one of his installed stooges comes up with a way to charge Obama with a crime and it won’t even matter that it’s completely false because no one who is currently in control of such things is going to oppose it. Either that or he’ll push until he can incite someone to take a shot at Obama or his family. I really think he’d be happiest if Obama were assasinated.

    Honestly, I’m frightened for Obama. I hope the security detail he has is good.

  20. Case says:

    Dude, 80,000 Americans have died. FOCUS YOUR TINY BRAIN.

  21. JennEricaMS says:

    Trump’s dumb ass doesn’t even know what Obamagate is, that was painfully obvious when a reporter questioned him about it. His little pig brain (no offense to pigs as they are actually quite intelligent) just likes the way it sounds so he’s going to run hard with it.

  22. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    If there were *ever* any cause (🙄) , I’d say, “LET THE DISCOVERY BEGIN, ” because so much dirty dirt on Rump would come out, and it would be politically devastating to him! 😈

  23. KellyRyan says:

    Obama, my favorite president. Kind, thoughtful, intelligent, good to see him looking healthy and pleased he’s speaking out. Drumpf, Article 25. Dumpty’s remarks on Dr Rick Bright, unconscionable, fully expected from a man who doesn’t have one.

  24. TIFFANY says:

    I too think this would have been the Lakers year. And I also think the Blues would have repeated and Serena would have gotten over that hump and leave Court in the dust.

    Everything about this is because they cannot get black man to follow orders. Judge Emmet Sullivan is no dummy and kudos to him for not signing off on the charges being dropped. Remember, he had read the unredacted reports on Flynn and was not having it from him or Flynn’s legal counsel.

    So, they can’t do anything about him so go after another black man in power hoping he will roll over.

  25. Stephanie says:

    If people don’t turn out to vote this fool out of office. It’s been four years of waking up to non-stop news that makes me just want to find a deserted island and live there.

  26. emmy says:

    The media needs to start ignoring this sh*t. He’s really just willing scandals into existence, it’s absolutely insane and most media outlets seem to have lost the plot. Just acknowledge it with one remark if you MUST and move on. I don’t understand how an entire industry has unlearned their job.

  27. Vava says:

    I wouldn’t mind listening to Obama explain the history to toothpaste. Just sayin’….

  28. ClaireB says:

    I am starting to believe deep in my soul, no longer just in random nihilistic moments, that we as a species do not deserve to survive. Trump and his mindless supporters, created by the Republican party over years of lies, misdirection, and the purposeful under-education of the electorate, have killed my hope that the best and brightest of us will prevail.

  29. Liz version 700 says:

    I co-sign every post on here. Dude 85,000 people are dead…could you please try to act like you care (act like it… we know you don’t actually care). I would love to watch the GOP’s blood boil as Obama slowly and deliberately answered all of their questions and reminded the world what a President should look like

    • Tiffany says:

      And I say this with earnest, you think they would have learned anything after the BS with Secretary Clinton. The only difference is Obama cannot run for another term and people’s memories are all of a sudden longer with people they know among those 80k+ dead, unemployed, hospitalized, has a care worker who is deemed essential, etc. Now it is about them and not just the ‘others’.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        Exactly! I saw Trump trying to argue tgat the death toll isn’t real (of course). Dude we know these folks… we see reality around us. The distraction circus is falling flat when we can’t even leave our houses because Trump didn’t want the stock market to fall…

    • Veronica S. says:

      The majority of the people dead are poor or non-white. They really don’t care, and they see this anger over the economy to be the perfect way to get themselves back in office. Even though, really, this economic fallout is their fault. The easiest way to survive this would’ve been a progressive stimulus driven by taxpayer money, but since this is the party of no taxes and no social nets, we get to eat the cost in jobs.

  30. Esmom says:

    Re Obama’s “VOTE” tweet. One of my favorite retweets was something like “Ok Republicans, here’s your chance to own the libs by not listening to Obama.” Lol.

  31. TheOriginalMia says:

    Obama is so smooth. I love that he’s living rent free in Trump’s vacuous, empty mind. They are going to have to confiscate his phones during the Obama Graduation Special tomorrow. All that black excellence on display, celebrating our high school seniors, reminding people what kind, empathetic human beings we had in the WH and who we could have again if we vote blue in November. Cue white supremacist meltdown.

  32. Rapunzel says:

    Obamagate= Obama’s pandemic playbook wasn’t in a binder…. right?

    • SofiasSideEye says:

      Nah, it’s just not written in crayon with big, colorful photos that trumpy requires to not fall asleep.

  33. Rapunzel says:

    The Obama administration investigated a criminal, Mike Flynn. That’s it. That is all Obamagate is. Trump of course doesn’t like investigating criminals.

    He wants Flynn to get off, but it hasn’t happened yet. The judge hasn’t signed off Barr’s crooked af DOJ orders.

  34. Sean says:

    I take back what I wrote earlier. Trump is telling the truth for once. Obama did commit a terrible crime while he was President. It was so bad, the worst ever and there’s actual footage of it. It was televised, even by the fake news media and now there’s a global conspiracy to cover it up and make us forget.

    April 30th, 2011.

    Never forget!

    • Jaded says:

      And that, folks, is why Obama needs to keep feeding chicken-fried donnie enough rope, bit by bit, until he hangs himself.

    • BeanieBean says:

      That was fun to relive.

    • Juls says:

      This right here is the reason. Obama humiliated Orangey in front of a crowd, and he has never forgotten. He has been reliving this in his mind, every day, for 9 years. And we are all paying the price. He would (and is) literally burn the world down to get back at Obama. And I will watch this clip over and over again because I LOVE seeing the humiliation.

  35. BUBS says:

    Obama tweets one word – vote- and it has 1.48m likes and counting…Trump could never…that’s why he’s so pissed…because for some reason, his ‘black’ predecessor is more popular, respected and liked. 45 is insanely jealous, so he’s working overtime to try and erase Obama’s policies and scream about stuff that simply doesn’t exist: Obamagate! It’s a classic case of the ‘Little Man Syndrome’. Plus, Donald has to create smoke screens to detract from his woeful handling of the pandemic…it’s his MO…not a surprise! November is around the corner, people; make sure you VOTE!!!

  36. sassafras says:

    The more Drump screams about Obamagate insanity the more that he’s galvanizing college educated moderates/independents. They know he’s full of crap – but they would have forgiven it for reasonable administration of the economy. But a tanked economy, no response to a pandemic AND continued unhinged crazy talk? Fine. Just keep losing the election, while Biden sits in a basement eating popcorn.

  37. Bluenoser says:

    For tRump, Obamagate is the “crime” of being a black President. That’s it. In his racist, pea-addled brain, he can’t wrap whatever brain material he has left around the fact that an intelligent, articulate, kind, black man was president, and a successful two-term president at that.

    And I would listen to Obama give a 15-minute lecture on the history of toothpaste anytime than hear even one word from the current monstrosity in the WH.

  38. Market Street Minifig says:

    It frightens me how people continue to underestimate this man. “Obamagate” didn’t have to meaning or weight behind it when it left his mouth. He knew it would be repeated often enough to take on an insidious life of its own. Brilliant really because it distracts and disarms the people smart enough to agitate for change. And the ones who couldn’t qwhite put their finger on what was so wrong about the former president? Well they needn’t get bogged down in the details because clearly Obamagate encompasses his crimes. So whether the word Obamagate provokes laughter or respect, 45 stays winning while everyone else loses.

  39. virginfangirls says:

    Hope Obama takes him up on his offer. Why can’t these lying assholes be sued for defamation?

  40. shanaynay says:

    This POS is getting more and more desperate to deflect is inadequacies that he’ll try and throw anybody under the bus. We see right through you you worthless POS!

  41. whybother says:

    y’all president tweet like a middle school bully egging his minion to trip some kid during lunch
