Everyone knows that Donald Trump has an unhealthy obsession with his predecessor, former President Barack Obama. Not only is Trump jealous as hell that he will never be as respected as or measure up to Obama, but he’s created several conspiracies about his predecessor to try and tarnish Obama’s image. Finally, Trump is being outed and exposed for his disgusting attacks on America’s last real president.
Conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe has written a new book, called American Pravda: My Fight for Truth in the Era of Fake News. In the book, O’Keefe writes about his relationship with Trump and exposes Trump for trying to make the author dig into Obama’s background for damaging information.
According to CNN, this happened when O’Keefe met with Trump in New York in 2013:
Donald Trump in 2013 asked James O’Keefe, the controversial conservative filmmaker, if he could ‘get inside’ Columbia University and obtain President Obama’s sealed college records, according to a passage in O’Keefe’s forthcoming book, a copy of which was reviewed by CNN…
According to O’Keefe, Trump ‘suspected Obama had presented himself as a foreign student on application materials to ease his way into New York’s Columbia University, maybe even Harvard too, and perhaps picked up a few scholarships along the way.’
O’Keefe wrote that during the 2013 meeting Trump suggested O’Keefe infiltrate Columbia and obtain the sealed records: ‘Nobody else can get this information,’ O’Keefe quoted Trump as saying. ‘Do you think you could get inside Columbia?'”
O’Keefe responded to Trump by refusing, telling Trump that it was beyond his “line of work.” But apparently, Trump didn’t listen. At the end of the meeting, Trump shook O’Keefe’s hand “and half-whispered, ‘Do Columbia.’”
Trump’s horrific behavior toward Obama, which goes back several years, was also exposed by O’Keefe himself when the filmmaker criticized CNN reporter Oliver Darcy. In the tweet, O’Keefe made sure to mention that Trump was never serious about his Obama “birther” claims, but was hellbent on damaging the former president’s reputation anyway.
Trump should be embarrassed by his behavior, as this hurts his credibility at a critical time in his presidency. No one will ever believe him after this.
