Well, it started off pleasantly enough.
There were weeks of cordial exchanges and promises of a smooth transition between outgoing President Barack Obama and incoming Commander-in-Chief Donald Trump. Really, things were supposed to just…flow.
Remember this? Wasn’t it nice?
Yeah, but did anyone really believe it would last?
Now, Trump has taken to Twitter (via Politico), his favorite public pulpit, and denounced Obama for throwing up a series of “roadblocks” designed specifically to hinder Donald’s ascent to the White House.
“Doing my best to disregard the many inflammatory President O statements and roadblocks,” Trump tweeted, referring to President Barack Obama by his initial. “Thought it was going to be a smooth transition – NOT!”
Obviously, these two guys are on opposite ends of the spectrum so nobody expected them to be friends for very long. But Obama has really turned the screws in recent weeks, from the Russia “election hacks” to the recent UN/Israel nastiness, the current president has been making a lot of enemies. Plus, it’s making things harder on Trump.
Obama hasn’t shied away from directly attacking the new president, either, making obviously insulting remarks about Trump and his team. For example, on Tuesday, during his remarks at Pearl Harbor, Obama warned us:
“Even when hatred burns hottest, even when the tug of tribalism is at its most primal, we must resist the urge to turn inward. We must resist the urge to demonize those who are different.”
His rhetoric just never changes, does it? He just doubled the number of refugees coming into the U.S., a full-on border alleviation that has enraged Americans, and there’s no doubt he will continue to toss up “roadblocks” at every turn.
Why? Because the Democrats have proven, time and time again and especially in 2016, that when they don’t get their own way, they will do anything to get it. It could be unethical or even criminal; they really don’t care. It’s who they are.
Thankfully, with the Democratic Party in total regression mode, the country can now get back on track.
