Donald Trump “hates Obama, he used to go around calling Obama a ‘child’”

Obama Meets Trump

I never want to use the photos of Donald Trump and Barack Obama in the same frame, especially the pics from their Oval Office meeting and from the 2017 inauguration. Even years later, I can feel the bile at the back of my throat, and the depression sets in and it’s just the worst. The fact that Barack Obama had to invite that old orange Nazi to the Oval Office after the election… Jesus, I’ll never be okay with it. But our friend Barry has come to play. He stayed quiet after Trump was sworn into office, and he stayed quiet throughout the primaries. And now he’s in the mood to bait the f–k out Trump. He’s already started, and Trump has been having a series of meltdowns in the face of Obama’s criticisms. It’s amazing. But Vanity Fair’s bigly sources want us to know that Trump *wants* to go to war with Barack Obama.

During a week when America’s COVID-19 death toll approached 90,000, Trump allies floated smears that Biden was a tool of China, an invalid eating from a spoon, and even a pedophile, none of which caused damage. Sources close to Trump said the president has vented to friends about the lack of focused firepower coming out of the campaign. “There is deep frustration that there is no overarching message,” an unofficial campaign adviser told me.

According to sources, Trump believes the answer to the message weakness is to declare all-out war on Biden’s former boss: Barack Obama. “Trump knows Biden is only popular because he was Obama’s V.P.,” a prominent Republican told me. Which is why, a few days after Parscale’s Death Star tweet, Trump accused Obama of unnamed crimes under the umbrella of “Obamagate.” “Obama is going to be on the campaign trail in a big way. He’s the most popular Democrat of the past four decades. Trump knows you have to neutralize him, and he’s frustrated Brad didn’t think of that,” the campaign adviser said. “Trump feels he’s doing it all alone.”

But Trump’s targeting of Obama has been causing consternation among Republicans, who fear he is pursuing a base-incitement strategy when he needs to appeal to crucial suburban voters in must-win battleground states. “Going after Obama is a big risk,” a former West Wing official said. “Obama is seen as trustworthy and reasonable. If you attack him and people don’t buy it, then you have a huge swing and a miss in front of the entire country.” Another prominent Republican agreed: “Trump cannot draw Obama into this. Obama can’t be ‘softened’ up. American people know him and like him.”

Trump has been leaning on powerful Republicans to join his war on Obama, sources told me. Last Thursday, Trump tweeted at Senate Judiciary chair Lindsey Graham, saying that Graham needed to call Obama to testify at hearings on Michael Flynn’s unmasking and the origin of the Russia probe. Graham rejected the request. “Trump thinks Lindsey isn’t doing anything on Flynn,” a former White House official said. According to the former official, Trump recently asked prominent allies to tweet negative things about Graham, and he has been complaining that Graham is a hanger-on. “Trump has said, ‘Since [John] McCain died, Lindsey follows me around and shows up to play golf and I don’t even invite him,’” according to the source briefed on the conversation.

“Trump hates Obama,” a former Trump adviser told me. “He used to go around calling Obama a ‘child.’” As a prominent Republican told me, “With Obama he’s going for the jugular. I wouldn’t be surprised if he puts out the really dirty stuff.”

[From Vanity Fair]

Whew, that is A LOT. Trump called Obama a “child” huh? Are you sure Trump didn’t call him “boy”? Either way, no racist dog whistles there! This made me LMAO: “Trump knows you have to neutralize him, and he’s frustrated Brad didn’t think of that. Trump feels he’s doing it all alone.” I mean… did Trump’s campaign manager really not understand that Obama would be active in the presidential campaign? Or did Brad know that and just let Trump come up with his own unhinged strategy, which apparently includes forcing Lindsay Graham to haul in Obama for some kind of Obamagate hearing? Anyway, this is just a reminder: Obama baited Trump SO EASILY. All it took was come comments to former staffers on a phone call, and Trump has been throwing pissy tantrums nonstop. Imagine what it will be like when Obama finally strides up to a podium and lets loose.

    Yep, think they mean Trump used to go around calling Harvard-educated Constitutional law scholar President Barack Obama, “boy,” because that’s EXACTLY who failson Donald Trump is.

    • Edna says:

      Exactly. The word child wasn’t used. The actual word was “boy” or even the N-word.

    • sunny says:

      He absolutely did. Racists gonna racist.
      I cannot imagine how much fortitude and strength Obama has to have as a man to endure the ridiculous amount of racism and hate he has been subjected to. I mean, I am a black woman in my 30′s and I routinely say, “This racist bs is making me tired.” I look at Obama doing his best to stay unbothered by the absolute insanity and I have so much admiration for him.

      Also @Kaiser, when you wrote that point about being eager for Obama to really make his feelings known, all I could picture was him swaggering up to a podium to the strains of “I feel like busting loose” by Rebirth Brass Band. Lol.

      • charo says:

        But we know who he’s always been veeeery careful about not attacking, right?

        Michelle. If he goes after Michelle Obama, then he’s got her AND Barack after him. And the general public.

        That would be a very bad idea. Because even though Trump insults women, and especially black women, he’s never ever insulted Michelle Obama.

        We’ll see, Donald J. Plump, we’ll see.

  2. Sean says:

    I will always wonder what President Obama told Trump during that 2017 meeting in the oval office. It was the only time I can remember where Trump seemed a tad humbled and respectful.


    April 30th, 2011. NEVER FORGET!

    • TheOtherSarah says:

      Well, we DO know that President Obama told Parmesan Putin that he should not hire the treasonous Flynn and of course, this dumb a** ignored him and hired Flynn anyway, only to fire him a few weeks later.

    • smee says:

      Good clip – you’re right, Stump was humiliated perfectly by O and he has never forgotten…

    • Jerusha says:


    • jwoolman says:

      We know Obama warned Trump about Flynn, who mishandled classified info via a secret server (!!!!) before Obama fired him. Seems Flynn decided to secretly shuffle classified materials to his NATO friends who were not authorized to receive it. He was also a nightmare for staff morale.

      But Obama also apparently had to explain the process of how a bill becomes a law to Trump. That confirmed my urge to ship Trump a copy of my old high school civics textbook during the campaign. It was pretty obvious then that Trump was very fuzzy about the structure and function of the different branches of the US government.

      He still thinks he has dictatorial powers, but he doesn’t. He just abuses his power so often that nobody seems able or willing to stop him. The Democrats in the House impeached him but should have had several articles of impeachment rather than two, and should be issuing more now. But Republicans refused to vote to remove him from office or even to allow witnesses in the Senate trial, even though they admitted the charges were true.

      I think the Republicans are mostly being blackmailed and bribed, that’s how Trump operated as a private citizen to get his way with officials. Putin must have picked up a lot of dirt on the Republicans when he hacked them.

      Now he’s even throwing Senator Lindsey Graham under the bus. Graham has definitely been invited to play golf with Trump. It was after a golf game, when McCain could no longer protect him, that Graham made a 180 degree reversal and became Trump’s lackey. I assume Trump made sure Graham knew exactly what secrets about him that Trump was holding.

    “As a prominent Republican told me, “With Obama he’s going for the jugular. I wouldn’t be surprised if he puts out the really dirty stuff.”

    What dirty stuff? If there was anything out there it would have been used already. No way any “dirty stuff” wouldn’t have been used to prevent Obama from being elected President. What they mean is they plan to fabricate and make up BS lies about Obama.

    • 10KTurtle says:

      “It’s obvious what the dirty stuff is. Everybody knows what the dirty stuff is. The dirty stuff is beautiful and tremendous and you haven’t seen it because it lives in Canada.”

    • Abby says:

      I feel like Obama made his way through 8 years of presidency with the minimum of scandals, despite the best efforts of a lot of people. He is admirable, and his family too. I doubt Trump has any dirt.

    • lara (the other) says:

      The Problem is, they don´t need any dirty stuff based on reality.
      They will make up a bunch of lies and sell it to Trumps base.
      Something like Pizzagate or so.

    • Veronica S. says:

      The worst part of Obama’s administrative policies were the drone wars, which absolutely killed far more innocent people than it did terrorists and sowed more discord in the Middle East. Problem is, they don’t actually care about the lives of those people, either, so it’s a no go for them as far as scandals exist.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      Yeah, that got me too. WHAT “really dirty stuff”?

      the tan suit? the dijon mustard? the push for nutritious foods by MO?

    • Darla says:

      Yep! Exactly what I thought. Oh right, you’re gonna release the really dirty stuff on Mr. Clean, okay. I’m shaking. The republicans were driven absolutely round the bend that President Obama couldn’t even give them a zipper problem to make into a scandal!

      He’s Mr. Clean. That doesn’t mean he’s “perfect” before anyone throws that distraction in. But he’s clean. Squeaky.

    • Jensies says:

      UHHHH hate to correct you but there’s a lot that he could bring up about Obama. That tan suit? He’s worn pleated shorts on MULTIPLE OCCASIONS, in front of mixed company, completely without apology. All that Dijon dependence, do you really think he got over that when he was in office? If anything, I bet it’s gone way up. So many scandals just waiting to happen.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        He also made REALLY BAD dad jokes during the turkey pardoning every year. that’s gotta be worth a few years in the pen.

  4. Michael says:

    If Trump really goes after Obama he will do more than any Democrat to get the black voter turnout in November. Also Barack is many times smarter than Trump and he has Michelle to back him up as well. I am sure the far right and the Nazi fringe will enjoy the racist dog whistles but they will incite and rally the left and leave the middle fairly cold too.

  5. Lightpurple says:

    “The really dirty stuff”

    There isn’t any. Their big drop yesterday was Susan Rice’s emails that reveal GASP that they were doing their jobs to try to keep the USA safe from foreign interference in our national security. Their scandal only works if you believe Flynn was a virtuous angel who was saving the US by selling it to Russia and Obama, Rice, Comey, and Biden were traitors for trying to stop him. Because Putin loves us all so much.

    Or is the “dirty stuff” all those altered pictures they’re passing around of Michelle Obama with a humongous penis that all of them wished they had?

    ETA and we learned yesterday that Biden has hired people to focus on outreach to voters of color. Attacking Obama isn’t going to help Trump with them.

    • holly hobby says:

      On the other hand I love how Judge Sullivan is slow walking the Flynn dismissal. Keep dragging it out until January. When the clock is run out and Barr is impeached and Flynn is incarcerated.

  6. Snappyfish says:

    I do hope this happens. Please please go after Obama. First, he could never keep up w/Obama. He has the reading level of a 4th grader & I apologize to 4th graders everywhere because I know your reading & comprehension is much better than Fu€kface von Clownstick. Second, IF he goes after Obama every moderate Republican I know who are looking for a reason to vote for Biden will have it.

    Obama is grace, intelligence & dignity. IQ45 is a disgrace on all fronts, but I did like the shading of Miss Lindsay.

  7. Tate says:

    Trump sounds like a teen age mean girl when it comes to Lindsey Graham

  8. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Last night I watched part of a video where clips of Obama AND baby Bush were used to illustrate the differences between the proper handling of a nation in mourning with what we have today. It’s glorious to finally see some effort to go the distance when bringing up this administration. For more than four years I’ve never once digested in candlelight, and I’ve been waiting for others to deliver some scorching heat lol. We’re still getting nothing from the Republicans in office minus maybe a few who have earned nicknames. No more veils. No tiptoing through the halls of the White House. It’s time to scream. Get fired! Then quickly write a book. Do it! Do it now!

  9. Nicole says:

    Correction: As Trump said, “With Obama he’s going for the jugular. I wouldn’t be surprised if he puts out the really dirty stuff.”

    Trump still handles a lot of his own PR and leaks to the press. Good luck. I do believe that President Obama has a war room already set up. I suspect that once Biden’s campaign infrastructure is in place, the Trump counter programming will be just a *tad* formidable. (At least I hope).

    • KeepCalmandBergeron says:

      I actually think the Biden War Room is already set up and is just compiling right now, getting for the big VP announcement and maybe some Cabinet postiions, too. I think they saw what was happening with Trump early on when it came to the pandemic and decided to stay somewhat quiet and let him hang himself, which has pretty much happened. Given Biden’s own propensity for gaffes, I think this was really smart. Let Trump’s weird press conferences and inability to tell the truth stay in the headlines while Biden just hangs back and looks smart, calm and reliable without lifting a finger.

    • holly hobby says:

      Anus Mouth can’t focus on Biden and Obama because the Lincoln Project will go after him with a bat. So far they’ve been successful.

  10. Jerusha says:

    He can’t possibly hate Obama more than I hate him. When he finally croaks I hope he’s put on display hanging upside down like Mussolini.

  11. grabbyhands says:

    God that picture depresses me.

    I have a vivid memory of going to work that day after the election and seeing that goon sitting next to Obama on TV and having to work really hard at not crying.

  12. Suz says:

    That’s funny. I often use the phrase “The child is having a tantrum again on Twitter” for this anus mouthed blunder.

  13. shanaynay says:

    DUMP is and will always be a racist. Anybody who supports DUMP is a racist as well.

  14. Seraphina says:

    It’s gotten to the point where I am not shocked with the heinous behaviors I am seeing from people in powerful positions. From the POTUS to the QoE. It just has gotten terrible. And what I think is even worse is that this behavior was always there but in the age of digital media, we are shown much more than in generations past. Sad that we have so much power to remove these people yet they still stay reigning supreme. I can’t wait till November.

  15. Mika says:

    I think that to be part of the “Presidents Club” you actually have to be burdened with the responsibilities of the job and feel emotionally crushed by it sometimes and then you look to the other people who have experienced the same thing and relate. Trump is not doing the job. He is not crushed by emotional burdens because he does not care about people. He doesn’t need kinship because these people are not his kin.

  16. Agirlandherdog says:

    The projecting this fool does is just mindblowing. Child? Pedophile? Mentally incompetent?? Look in a GD mirror, fool.

  17. KellyRyan says:

    “Baited,” apropos. He’s unhinged at any perceived threat. Vascular dementia or Alzeimer’s, Drumpf continues to display paranoia. Still reading David Kay Johnston’s book which contains a massive amount of information. DKJ has studied, followed Drumpf for over 30 years. He is highly knowledgeable on our tax system. There are no bounds to Drumpf’s corruption. He’ll never survive any comments made by Obama.

  18. Emmitt says:

    Brad, Lindsay and Barr know that if they unleash on Obama, it will not end well for Trump:

    1) Unleashing, indicting, arresting Obama as Trump wants will only gin up Obama’s base (black voters in particular) to vote for Biden

    2) Spewing racist foghorns on Obama will only gin up Obama’s base to vote for Biden

    3) Prosecuting/Indicting/arresting Obama, Biden or their children will only open up the door for a President Biden to prosecute/indict/arrest Trump, his children and the GOP

    4) A ginned up Obama/Biden base could end up voting D down the line and cost the GOP the Senate.

    IMO the GOP is more worried about losing the Senate than they are about losing Trump.

    But Trump is not going to listen. Narcissists never do. Quite frankly, I think Trump should unleash on Obama. I suspect Obama thinks he should, too.

  19. Dr Mrs The Monarch says:

    A President running for re-election has absolutely zero positive accomplishments from his four years in office.

    Four years later and his entire re-election platform is lies, racism, bleach-drinking, money-grubbing greed and incompetence.

    I hope this fires up the Democrats. It is going to be a hot summer.

  20. AnnaKist says:

    “A child”, huh? Pot, meet kettle… Moron.

  21. Valerie says:

    Like Ricky Roma in Glengarry Glen Ross? lmao. He just projects SO HARD. That’s all he ever does. He lies and projects, often in the same breath.

    • The Recluse says:

      Which is so intriguingly indicative of what Drumpf thinks of himself deep down and what he’s actually guilty of as well.

  22. HaHa says:

    He called Obama “boy”. I highly doubt Cheetolini uses the word “Child”, too many syllables. No, it’s boy, girl or kid, with boy having an extra racist layer.

  23. Jana says:

    What is the root of all this jealousy? Because Obama is smarter, fitter, more handsome, happily married? Or did he see catch a gloms of him naked in the locker room?
