When it comes down to it, this nation hasn’t had a good, decent president who cared about human beings on the most basic level since Barack Obama and his family departed the White House three years ago. That’s not a matter of opinion at this point, nor is it up for debate. It’s simply the truth. While certainly not perfect (because who is?) Trump’s predecessor lived every day of his life as president with the good of not only this country but human beings all around the globe at heart.
Donald Trump cares about himself. And all of his actions, policies, and behaviors as “president” are wholly evident of that. Frankly, it leaves us all with absolutely nothing good to say about number 45.
And while Donald’s forerunner tends to keep quiet about his feelings regarding the “man” to come after him these days, it comes as no surprise on this Presidents’ Day that we all find ourselves reminded that Obama once had plenty to say about the washed-up reality TV “star” — and none of it was high praises.
As the nation honors, recognizes, and celebrates our long line of leaders (except for you, Donald. No one wants to celebrate you), a resurfaced video of our last legitimate president is making its rounds on social media in which Obama is frankly sticking it to Donnie.
“Apparently in a speech yesterday he started talking about global elites, and there was a conspiracy of global elites,” Obama stated of Trump in the resurfaced clip, as he started to laugh. “This is a guy who spent all his time hanging around, trying to convince everybody that he was a global elite. Talking about how great his buildings are. How luxurious. How rich he is and flying around everywhere. All he had time for was celebrities. And now suddenly he’s acting like he’s a populist out there. ‘Man. I’m gonna fight for working people!'”
“C’mon, man!” Obama continued with a laugh both from himself and the crowd. “You wanna know what somebody’s gonna do?! Look what they’ve been doing their whole lives!”
This awesome clip of Obama sticking it to Trump needs to be retweeted ‘til the end of time! pic.twitter.com/lgL1VgTfWa

It certainly made Twitter users reminisce on the good ol’ days when we had a president who didn’t make us gag:
The contrast between Obama and Trump is jarring. When Obama speaks the room lights up. When Trump speaks the lights go out.

As if Obama’s words here weren’t enough, they’re backed up solidly by his example: the community organizer who helps the greater good vs the bottomless void of the narcissist who only helps himself

I didn’t even hear one cheap, classless insult in that clip. All I heard was the truth.

Will never get tired of saying it, ”Obama was a visionary a man loved not only by his country but by the world. He is the epitome of Grace, Humilty, Class & Integrity. He inspired Hope to a nation. A true Statesman & role model for children all over the 🌎.” I miss him so much.

Too bad we didn’t listen to him.

Good God, I miss him.
