President Donald Trump is definitely not a fan of his predecessor and has also proven himself to be one who says, at whim, whatever he wants…no matter who it offends. It’s an honest and brutal approach to presidency that seems to work considering he keeps on winning as president and certainly more so in his first year than Barack Obama did in two terms.
Supporters love his blatant truthful approach to calling things like it is and not sugar coating anyone or any action to appease the establishment. Trump is a president of the American people and an nemesis to career politicians who don’t appreciate him “draining the swamp” and shaking things up. However, in all of his daily Twitter rants, perhaps the best are when he takes jabs at the man whose mess he’s done a masterful job cleaning up.
The best jab yet came after Obama’s recent speech in which he arrogantly touted himself throughout. His seemingly narcissistic address came across as an attempt to not be forgotten or replaced by a capable and successful leader that Trump is, although, his real motive for glorifying himself is unknown…he could just believe what he’s actually convinced himself of, while trying to convince the country what a incapable president Trump is.
President Trump couldn’t and wouldn’t let this self-indulgent address go without response and used the perfect insult of his predecessor that had to have been a massive slap in the face…which, in my opinion, couldn’t have been better.
Here’s one reason why so many Americans love and appreciate our current president!

President Donald Trump responded to former President Barack Obama’s attack on him during a speech Friday, joking his predecessor is good for inducing sleep.
In a speech at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign on Friday, Obama told the students they were coming of age when “the privileged … want to keep us divided and keep us angry and keep us cynical, because it helps them maintain the status quo and keep their power and keep their privilege.”
He added that the current administration is “a symptom, not the cause” of that division. “It did not start with Donald Trump,” he said.
At a Friday campaign fundraiser in Fargo, North Dakota, Trump told the audience he had been asked by a journalist if he watched Obama’s speech given earlier in the day.
“I’m sorry. I watched it but I fell asleep,” the president said. “I found he’s very good, very good for sleeping.”
Trump did directly address Obama’s claim in his remarks that the current robust economy, at least in part, is due to the steps taken during the previous administration.
Obama said that under his leadership, the country initiated the longest job creation streak on record and ensured that wealthier Americans paid their “fair share” in taxes to “help folks coming up behind them.”
Trump responded by saying Obama “was trying to take credit for this incredible thing that is happening to our country … I have to say this to President Obama, it wasn’t him.”
“If the Democrats got in with their agenda in November, two years ago, instead of having (a Gross Domestic Product) 4.2 (percent) up, I believe honestly you’d have 4.2 down. You’d be in negative numbers right now. We were heading south.”
“It was the weakest recovery … since the Great Depression,” Trump said. “It was barely a recovery, and now this is called not recovery. This is called rocket ship.”
The president pointed to the newly released August jobs report numbers, which showed hourly wages increased 2.9 percent, while unemployment remained at a low of 3.9 percent, matching a number not seen since 2000.
Trump has often touted that the nation is experiencing the lowest unemployment rates for African-Americans, Asians and Hispanics ever recorded.
The GDP grew at 1.6 percent during Obama’s final year in office in 2016. During Trump’s first year in office, the rate was 2.3 percent.
The day after Trump’s election in 2016, the Dow Jones Industrial Average spiked over 250 points, closing at a record high of 18,589.
Over the next year, it steadily increased and now sits just under 26,000.
The 31 percent rise in the stock market during Trump’s first year represents the best tally since the 1930s, when the market was recovering from the 1929 crash.
Earlier this summer, Trump’s top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, credited the economy’s strength to four very un-Obama policies his boss implemented since taking office.
“We’ve lowered tax rates, we’ve rolled back regulations, we’ve unleashed energy, we’re moving to fix the broken world trading system,” Kudlow said.
