President Obama laughed off the potential of Donald Trump earning the Republican nomination. Then he scoffed at the billionaire businessman’s ability to win the White House. But with just six weeks left until America elects a new Commander-in-Chief, Barry isn’t laughing anymore. Especially after Hillary’s performance last night.
While, to her credit, the Democratic nominee didn’t have any coughing fits or spontaneous seizures on stage during the tense 90-minute debate, she did lie her way into oblivion. The American people took notice, and so did Donald Trump, each and every time she began to mislead the audience with her answers.
Now, comments from Obama Administration officials have surfaced, and they show that the White House is definitely worried that Trump will indeed win the presidency.
“I’m trying to think of a series to compare it to, which was a series that started as a comedy and became a high stakes drama,” said Ben LaBolt, a former White House aide and press secretary for Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign. “I feel like we’re maybe in the fifth season of ‘Breaking Bad’ here. We’re way beyond the laughs, and just sitting on the edge of our seats in terror.”
Jim Papa, a former special assistant for legislative affairs in the White House, also remarked on the possibility of a Trump presidency, while showcasing how painfully out-of-touch the Democratic Party really is.
“We are still the country that elected Barack Obama in 2008, and we are capable of that and more,” Papa told Politico. “But we’re also capable of making bad choices and being seduced by someone who plays to fears and anxieties and racial differences.”
Funny how Papa was referencing Trump, but his words better describe Obama. I suppose the irony is lost on him, though. Share this report if you believe Donald Trump won last night’s debate!
