President Obama had some harsh words for GOP front runner Donald Trump this week. He accused Trump of not taking the responsibilities of the presidency seriously, and implying that anyone supporting Trump is not a “sensible” person.
“I continue to believe Mr. Trump will not be president,” Obama said at a news conference in California after a meeting with southeast Asian leaders. “And the reason is that I have a lot of faith in the American people. Being president is a serious job. It’s not hosting a talk show, or a reality show.”
The president knows this with certainty, having taken the time to make celebrity appearances on 2 reality shows in the last 3 months alone.
He went on: “It’s not promotion, it’s not marketing. It’s hard. And a lot of people count on us getting it right.” The presidency isn’t “a matter of pandering and doing whatever will get you in the news on a given day. And sometimes, it requires you making hard decisions even when people don’t like it,” Obama said, adding that whoever succeeds him needs to be able to reflect the importance of their office and give foreign leaders confidence he or she knows their names and something about their nations’ histories.
Secretary of State John Kerry must have missed that memo, given that he spent the week in Hollywood rubbing elbows with movie executives to get their thoughts on “fighting the #Daesh narrative.” Sounds a lot like promotion and marketing to me….

One -of the many- problems of the Obama Administration has always been its arrogance. The White House ridicules and vilifies anyone who disagrees with its progressive ideology, including its own constituents.
The Democrats must be pretty nervous if the President had to step in and do their political bidding for them…. what do you think?
