Former President Barack Obama, like many other politically correct public figures, kept his remarks regarding former President Donald Trump cordial and professional during the latter’s presidency.
Despite the fact that both Obama and his wife, former First Lady Michelle Obama, were vocal critics of Trump’s policies, comments, and actions, the Obamas avoided speaking out loud about the president at the time.
However, according to a new report, Barack Obama was hurling insults at Trump behind the scenes.
A staff writer for the Atlantic named Edward-Isaac Dovere wrote a book called Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaigns to Defeat Donald Trump, according to The Guardian.
According to the source, Obama referred to Trump as a “racist, sexist ,” a “madman,” and a “corrupt motherf*cker.”
That wasn’t the end of it. Obama even referred to Trump as “the f*cking lunatic,” but he wasn’t the only one who spat threats at him.
Prior to becoming President Joe Biden’s running mate, Vice President Kamala Harris made remarks during a debate that Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden, did not appreciate. Jill told Harris to “go f*ck herself,” according to Dovere’s book.
Dovere says Obama told “major donors trying to squeeze a reaction out of him in return for the big checks they were writing to his foundation,” “He’s a madman,” and that Obama said this to “big donors looking to squeeze a reaction out of him in exchange for the big checks they were writing to his foundation.”
Obama said, “I didn’t think it would be this bad,” according to Dovere, and was seen saying all of these things while simply shaking his head.
Despite the scandals that surrounded him, Trump managed to win nearly half of America’s votes, and he remains a loyal leader to conservatives and others with far-right political views.
