President Obama took time out from his vacation on Monday to attend a Democratic National Committee fundraiser. While speaking at the event, he made it clear that he is sick and tired of talking about Donald Trump and his absurd bid for the presidency.
“I’m here because we’ve got an election. And although Michelle is very strict about me actually taking a vacation when I get a vacation, she gave me a special dispensation for this evening because she understands, just as all of you understand, how important this is,” he said.
Obama told the crowd that he doesn’t even have to “make the cage against” Trump because he does it himself every time he opens his big fat mouth.
Frankly, I’m tired of talking about her opponent. I don’t have to make the case against her opponent because every time he talks, he makes the case against his own candidacy.
However, the president also warned his fellow Democrats about getting too comfortable and becoming overconfident with current poll numbers, reminding them that this election season has been particularly unpredictable.
“If we are not running scared until the day after the election, we are going to be making a grave mistake,” Obama said.
Obama praised Clinton highly and then pointed out that her popularity has taken a hit throughout the campaign. He urged them to continue pushing back against the negative attacks that will surely come in the months ahead.
“We are still going to have to fight what has been an unrelenting negative campaign against her that has made a dent in the opinion of people even who are inclined to vote for her,” Obama said. “So we’ve got to be aggressive in our campaign for 80 days and that’s not a lot.”
It has to be an exasperating experience for Obama to find himself in, having to constantly explain why this babbling idiot is unfit to be president. Everything Trump says and does screams “DO NOT GIVE THIS MAN POWER.” And yet, here we are. The fact that he has made it this far is the very reason we cannot rest on our laurels and assume Clinton will win simply because her competitor is a
fucking moron racist con man. Liberals have to come out in droves this November and defeat this bigoted bully at the polls once and for all.
