What Obama Thinks About Trump: ‘He’s Nothing But A…,’ Sources Say

​Former President Barack Obama apparently thinks current President Donald Trump is a bullshitter, sources told People Magazine Wednesday. The POTUS found himself in hot water Tuesday, for what seemed like the millionth time, after the Washington Post reported Trump leaked classified information to Russian officials. The week before, he was scrutinized after he fired FBI director James Comey. Though Obama never publicly criticized his successor, he’s supposedly not pleased with the New York billionaire.

“He’s nothing but a bullshitter,” Obama told two friends early last November. The comment was made after Trump told Obama he had “respect” and “admiration” for Obama after the businessman was elected. Previously, the former reality star openly criticized Obama and his administration for years.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama isn’t Trump’s biggest fan, either. She campaigned against Trump when he was running for president in the fall and joked about wearing “mourning clothes” after he was elected. “I’m going all black for the next couple of years,” she supposedly joked.
It’s been three months since Trump has taken off and Obama’s opinion hasn’t changed much. “Well,” one of the sources told People Magazine, “it hasn’t gotten any better.”
While Obama isn’t happy with the way Trump is running the country, he’s hopeful citizens will  take control by getting involved in local government. “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,” a third source said.
Obama might not approve of Trump’s presidency behind closed doors, but he’s been vigilant about not calling him out publicly. “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,” David Axelrod, who is now the director of the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics, told People Magazine.
“President Obama’s predecessor didn’t do that,” Axelrod, who is a long-time friend of Obama, added. “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.”
As for Trump, his latest tweets focused on him having the “right” to share “facts” with Russia.
“As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism,” he tweeted Tuesday. “I have been asking Director Comey & others, from the beginning of my administration, to find the LEAKERS in the intelligence community.”
When it comes to what Trump will do next, the White House is reportedly on edge. “Nobody knows where this really goes from here,” a White House official told Politico Wednesday. “Everyone is walking around saying, ‘What is next?’”
Another official added: “We are kind of helpless.”
