President Obama appeared as a guest on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show Monday evening, and took full advantage of the opportunity to mock Republican nominee Donald Trump.
Kimmel asked Obama if he wished he were running against Trump? Obama said he’s enjoying campaigning on behalf of Hillary Clinton.
Referencing his previous races against both John McCain and Mitt Romney, he said if either of them had won, “I wouldn’t worry about the general course of this country.” Then Obama went on to say he was concerned about Trump running the country, and as an example referenced Trump’s questioning U.S. elections: “What we haven’t seen before is somebody questioning the integrity of elections….”
The president has selective memory. In 2008, he admitted that voter fraud was a major issue. You can watch the video here.
Obama reflecting upon his presidency, said he was always honest with the American people, and “protective of the institutions.”
Fact is, Obama lied about Obamacare, telling the nation that premiums would go down, and everyone would be able to keep their doctor if they liked their doctor. And in a Wikileaks email released today, we learned that President Obama lied when he said he did not know about Hillary Clinton’s email server. You can see the email here.
Kimmel asked why do so many people not trust Hillary Clinton?
Obama said it’s just because she has been in the trenches for 30 years, and when you have been in the public eye that long, folks go after you and any mistake you make ends up being magnified and a whole narrative begins to build.
Kimmel asked Obama if he ever laughs at Donald Trump, and Obama responded, “Most of the time.”
