BITTER BARACK: Book Reveals What Obama Called Trump And Hillary Clinton After The 2016 Election

New passages have been added to former President Barack Obama’s book, “Obama: The Call Of History,” which show Obama’s views of President Trump along with what was going through his mind when Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election.

These passages were added by New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker

Obama was so upset that Trump won the election that he ended up watching "Dr. Strange," and then went on to hammer Clinton because she "brought many of her troubles on herself" and ran a "scripted, soulless campaign."

For once, I agree with Obama when it comes to his views of Hillary Clinton!

It gets better. Check out what the Daily Mail reported:

Obama was cordial to the president elect in their face-to-face meeting in the Oval Office, but in private Obama called Trump a conman straight out of Huckleberry Finn.

Obama even likened himself to Michael Corleone in the Godfather movies and said he was handing power over to somebody who would destroy his legacy.

Baker writes that Obama woke up on the morning of November 8, 2016 convinced he would ‘not be handing the nuclear football over to Donald Trump – the reality television star, he thought, was a joke’.

Obama arrogantly thought there was ‘no way Americans would turn on him’ even though Clinton was far from perfect.

Baker writes: ‘She was a serious and seasoned professional who had served at the highest levels of government and provided mature leadership. Just as important, she would continue his policies and cement his biggest achievements.

‘His legacy, he felt, was in safe hands’.

Given that Obama had no formal role in the election he went to the White House movie theater with his wife Michelle and adviser Valerie Jarrett where they watched Dr Strange, the superhero movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

Michelle went to bed early but as Obama watched TV he looked on in horror as Trump won Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan which had been Democratic for years.

According to the book, Obama was so upset with the American people and couldn’t get over the fact that Americans "simply could not have decided to replace him with a buffoonish showman whose calling cards had been repeated bankruptcies, serial marriages and racist dog whistles."

According to the book, shortly after her loss, Clinton called Obama and said, "I’m sorry for letting you down."

Baker writes: "While Clinton had lost, so had he. The country that had twice elected Barack Hussein Obama as its president had now chosen as his successor a man who had questioned the very circumstances of his birth."

Here’s more from the Daily Mail:

Obama tried to keep his cool in the weeks afterwards and texted his speechwriter Ben Rhodes: ‘There are more stars in the sky than sand on the earth’.

But soon he was unable to contain his rage which escalated after he met Trump in the Oval Office.

Baker writes that despite being cordial in public he afterwards summoned Rhodes who told him that Trump ‘peddles in b*******’

Rhodes said: ‘That character has always been part of the American story. You can see it right back to some of the characters in Huckleberry Finn’.

Obama replied: ‘Maybe that’s the best we can hope for’.

As the weeks went by Obama went through ‘multiple emotional stages’, at times being philosophical and other times he ‘flashed anger’.

Obama told one aide: ‘I’ve got the economy set up well for him. No facts. No consequences. They can just have a cartoon’.

In a stinging passage Baker writes: ‘To Obama and his team, however, the real blame lay squarely with Clinton.

‘She was the one who could not translate his strong record and healthy economy into a winning message.

‘Never mind that Trump essentially ran the same playbook against Clinton that Obama did eight years earlier, portraying her as a corrupt exemplar of the status quo.

‘She brought many of her troubles on herself. No one forced her to underestimate the danger in the Midwest states of Wisconsin and Michigan.

‘No one forced her to set up a private email server that would come back to haunt her.

‘No one forced her to take hundreds of thousands of dollars from Goldman Sachs and other pillars of Wall Street for speeches.

‘No one forced her to run a scripted, soulless campaign that tested eighty-five slogans before coming up with ‘Stronger Together’.

Brutal! Obama is just a bitter man!
