According to excerpts from a forthcoming book, former President Barack Obama lashed out profanely at former President Trump during closed-door donor events over the last five years, referring to him as a “madman,” a “racist, sexist pig,” “that fucking lunatic,” and a “corrupt motherfucker.”
The remarks are reported in Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaigns to Defeat Donald Trump by Edward-Isaac Dovere, a staff writer at the Atlantic, which will be published next week.
Obama has never had favorable words for Trump, of course. He has referred to Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic as “absolute chaotic disaster” and blamed him for causing “long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy — that has become a stronger impulse in American life.”
Appearing on CBS’s The Late Show, Obama told host Stephen Colbert the Trump administration has “exceeded” his worst fears. “You couldn’t make up some of the stuff that you’re seeing,” Obama said. “And it is to the detriment of the country.”
But these forthcoming allegations show that Obama, whom the left idolizes as dignified and classy, is actually a hateful, profanity-spewing thug in a politically-supportive, private setting.
