It’s a presidential smackdown!
Since Donald Trump has been RIGHTFULLY getting a ton of bad press recently, he’s been spouting off wild conspiracy theories that the election is rigged and the media is against him — but President Barack Obama isn’t having any of it!
On Tuesday, Obama held a press conference in the Rose Garden where he addressed the current political climate and took a moment to comment on all of Trump’s whining he’s been doing recently.
POTUS’ powerful response is EXACTLY what we’d expect from the class act, as he said:
I have never seen in my lifetime or in modern political history any presidential candidate trying to discredit the elections and the election process before votes have even taken place. It’s unprecedented… Every expert, regardless of political party, regardless of ideology, conservative or liberal, who has ever examined these issues in a serious way will tell you that instances of significant voter fraud are not to be found.
The 55-year-old continued:
By the way, [it] doesn’t really show the kind of leadership and toughness that you’d want out of a president. You start whining before the game’s even over? If whenever things are going badly for you and you lose, you start blaming somebody else, then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job.
As for Barack’s advice for The Donald? He simply said:
And so, I’d advise Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes.
Ch-ch-check out Obama’s speech (below) and let us know if you agree with the President!
