He went there!

Throughout Donald Trump’s presidency, his predecessor Barack Obama largely remained true to the tradition of his fellow former presidents — no matter how badly I’m sure he wanted to, he rarely ever publicly spoke out about the guy who took his place. And when he did, it was always with poise, grace, and as much respect as one can muster for the likes of human garbage like Donald J. Trump.

During the 2020 election season, our favorite POTUS seemed even more careful about ensuring that he didn’t say anything out of turn that could possibly harm his former vice president’s run at the White House. However, according to a recent report from The Guardian, Obama was evidently a bit more willing to share his true feelings about his successor behind closed doors.

According to a recent book,  Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaigns to Defeat Donald Trump by Edward-Isaac Dovere, an Atlantic staff writer, former President Obama referred to now-former President Trump as a “madman,” a “racist, sexist pig,” “that fucking lunatic” and a “corrupt motherfucker,” during an event with donors.

The Guardian obtained excerpts from the book ahead of its release, and it truly gives a glimpse into Obama’s deepest, truest feelings about Donald Trump.

“He’s a madman,” Dovere reports Obama telling “big donors looking to squeeze a reaction out of him in exchange for the big checks they were writing to his foundation.”

“More often: ‘I didn’t think it would be this bad.’ Sometimes: ‘I didn’t think we’d have a racist, sexist pig.’ Depending on the outrage of the day … a passing ‘that fucking lunatic’ with a shake of his head.”

According to the author, Obama’s strongest remarks against Trump came when reports indicated that the reality TV washup turned president was speaking to foreign leaders, amid his Russia impeachment, without aides included on the calls.

“‘That corrupt motherfucker,’ he remarked.”

The report from The Guardian takes an even deeper dive into the excerpts of the bombshell book, which you can read here.

But it seems pretty crystal clear that Obama hates Trump just as much as we do.
