There’s been a lot of speculation about what former President Obama might think of the man who took over his job. What was seen in the public eye was the gracious behavior we’ve known and loved about Obama. He treats everyone with respect, unlike the man who took over his job.
Yet, in the most recent PEOPLE magazine, it would seem a couple of Obama’s friends know the truth about how the former president feels about Donald Trump.
According to PEOPLE, Obama thinks Trump is a “bullsh*tter” alongside the rest of us who are sane-minded.
““He’s nothing but a bullsh–ter,” Obama told two friends early last November, describing an election night phone call with Trump, in which the businessman suddenly professed his “respect” and “admiration” for Obama—after years of hectoring.”
And has Obama’s opinion changed since last November? Not so much. In fact, PEOPLE reports:
“Speaking to PEOPLE for its new cover story on Obama and his wife Michelle adjusting to life outside the White House, the two friends quoted Obama’s blunt assessment of President-elect Trump. And how has Obama’s opinion changed since Trump been in office? “Well,” said one of the sources, “it hasn’t gotten any better.””
Another source told PEOPLE:
“He’s deeply concerned with what he’s seen. But he’s also optimistic and heartened that citizens aren’t just watching it happen but engaging with neighbors and elected representatives at town halls.”
And that is the silver lining for most of us. That while Trump is practically burning everything that made the country great to the ground and destroying diplomatic relations around the globe, people aren’t sitting on their hands. People are rising up and fighting back against the dangerous and dark force that took over the Oval Office.
It’s clear Obama is still the Obama we’ve known and loved — a man full of hope even in some of our darkest days.
