The day his presidential run should have died.
I listened to President Obama’s press conference yesterday and I must admit that I am terrified. I’m not the only one.
President Barack Obama’s remarks about Donald Trump in his Monday press conferencecontained some of the most ominous words I’ve heard since news networks began calling the election for Trump early last Wednesday morning. But you may not have heard them.
It is an understatement to say that Obama’s departure from the White House is occurring under unusual circumstances. He is managing a transition to the presidency of someone he believes is unfit for that office, who has empowered racist hate groups, wants to undo the Obama presidency, and shouldn’t be entrusted with nuclear weapons.
Despite all that, but also in a sense precisely because of all that, Obama is planning to play something like mentor to Trump over the coming weeks—something that doesn’t normally happen between outgoing presidents and incoming ones when the latter is acceptably disciplined and competent.
In a tense environment in which reporters, government workers, world leaders, and anxious citizens and immigrants understandably are scrutinizing every Donald Trump tweet and utterance and leak, Obama’s closing thoughts on the presidency and his successor will inevitably be given short shrift.But the things he says about the transition contain critical information about its progress and his confidence that, on the other side of it, things will run fairly smoothly.
His Monday comments suggests he has very little confidence that they will.
Please read his entire article. It will scare you shitless.
And if the names of the people being floated around in his administration haven’t already frightened the hell out of you, then you do need to listen up.
Reince Priebus, Steve Bannon, Laura Ingraham, Newt Gingrich, John Bolton and Rudy Guilani!!!
This administration is going to be a nightmare.
Trump is already looking for security clearances for his kids who will be running his businesses. How on earth can that be ethical?
I’m at a loss for words.
