Democratic leaders, from President Obama down through likely presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, are now fine-tuning plans to keep their grasp on power and control of the USA’s tattered health care system, education, manufacturing, and other sectors of the nation’s economy
Though the details are still secret, Obama offered a glimpse of these attack plans at a press conference Friday, Politico reported:
It boils down to this: Trump, in Obama’s mind, is a buffoon-charlatan hybrid who’s only gotten as far as he has because the Republican Party’s a mess and reporters have fallen for the act. The president’s going to keep pointing out that being president isn’t a joke, all while he keeps laughing at Trump and chastising reporters for not asking enough follow-up questions (though of course, Obama took only four questions himself, and no follow-ups as he made this point).
It appears that Obama is staying true to his attack plan.
In an early volley, he warned the media, and presumably candidate Trump:
“This is not entertainment, this is not a reality show. This is a contest for the presidency of the United States. What that means is every candidate, every nominee needs to be subject to … exacting standards of genuine scrutiny,” Obama said.
These words came from a two-term president who has appeared on late-night and other TV talk shows well over a dozen times throughout his presidency, more than any other president.
With just a few months left of Obama’s lame-duck presidency and a track record of destruction behind him, it might be better for America if he spent more time on TV and did less damage from the Oval Office.
