Ex-presidents used to be respectful of the president who replaced him but no one will accuse Obama of that. But now that he’s a millionaire as a result of being elected and re-elected mostly not because of his brains he’s doing his best to rub President Trumps face in the mud. Shows he’s a sore loser as well as a loser because he supported Hillary with his own reputation and he’s chagrined because she and therefore he lost. His legacy depends on his actions going forward as well as what he did in office the money bet is he’ll mess up many times as he already has breached the unwritten rule that the ex-prez stays out of the spotlight and lets the country experience the new president.
Ex-prez Jimmie Carter commented inappropriately about president Bush and was cited for calling the Bush administration “the worst in history” Mr. Carter tried to take it back saying on the “Today” show that his remarks were “careless or misinterpreted” and that he was “not talking personally about any president,” he has still incited a tsk-tsking tsunami in the capital.
His offense: failing to observe the protocol that former presidents should speak respectfully of their successors, or at least with some measure of restraint.
Of course Obama is more of a puzzlewit than a high intellectual. He did rather poor to middling in school but there’s no teacher around to judge Obama on his manners.
No teacher but plenty of watchful citizens and so far Obama’s grade as an ex-prez is a “D”.
