“No-drama” Barack Obama might not be as even keeled as liberals would like you to believe.
In fact, he might be the exact opposite!
Two of Obama’s friends have come forward, telling People that the former president told them last November what he really thinks about Trump.
“He’s nothing but a bullsh*ter.”
Reportedly, Obama was discussing an election night phone call with Trump, where the president said he had “respect” and “admiration” for Obama.
Speaking to PEOPLE for its new cover story on Obama and his wife Michelle adjusting to life outside the White House, the two friends quoted Obama’s blunt assessment of President-elect Trump. And how has Obama’s opinion changed since Trump been in office? “Well,” said one of the sources, “it hasn’t gotten any better.”
A third source close to Obama tells PEOPLE: “He’s deeply concerned with what he’s seen. But he’s also optimistic and heartened that citizens aren’t just watching it happen but engaging with neighbors and elected representatives at town halls.”
“Bulls—ter,” while head-turning, shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to anyone paying attention to Obama’s 2016 campaign rhetoric on Trump (“unfit,” “woefully unprepared” and “unacceptable”).
Obama’s friend and political strategist David Axelrod praised the former president, saying:
“He’s very respectful of the appropriate role of a former president and that ex-presidents should not be looking over the shoulder of their successors and commenting on every decision.
“Obviously, this now is a unique set of circumstances, but my sense is that he’s going to try and respect that tradition while reserving the right to speak out in given moments when things rise to that level.”
Yeah, we aren’t sure we agree with that…
The former first lady has also said some not-so-nice things about Trump.
Last December, she reportedly was joking with visitors that she was in need of mourning attire that she would call “the black series.”
“I’m going all black for the next couple of years,” she joked.
Well, we can’t say we are surprised.
