Can’t Buy Class:
According to information posted on people.com, some insiders that are close to the Obama’s shared some insight on how the former president really feels about Trump:
“He’s nothing but a bullsh–ter,” Obama told two friends early last November, describing an election night phone call with Trump, in which the businessman suddenly professed his “respect” and “admiration” for Obama—after years of hectoring.
Who does Donny think he’s dealing with? Barack ain’t new to this. He knows bullsh*t when he hears and sees it. According to the source another insider added to the conversation:
A third source close to Obama tells PEOPLE: “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.”

Speaking to PEOPLE for its new cover story on Obama and his wife Michelle adjusting to life outside the White House, the two friends quoted Obama’s blunt assessment of President-elect Trump. And how has Obama’s opinion changed since Trump been in office? “Well,” said one of the sources, “it hasn’t gotten any better.”
For none of us!
Barack and Michelle will be featured on the cover of People Magazine. The conversation will focus on life after The White House. as mentioned by the source, Michelle packs her own lunch and the secret service still does not allow Barack to drive. He will continue to focus on being involved in the direction of the country as a citizen and:
“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,” says Obama’s long-time friend and political strategist David Axelrod, now director of the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics, noting how George W. Bush refrained from criticizing Obama.
But as posted on the site:
“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.”
I think Michelle expressed my exact sentiment when Donald took over and what my life and feelings would be post Obama:
To visitors last December, she joked about needing mourning attire that she would call “the black series.”
“I’m going all black for the next couple of years,” she joked.
Like Jay-Z, I’m fading to Black, until he pisses me off again and that’ll be in the next 15 minutes. Just pray!
As for the former first lady, she too campaigned forcefully against Trump last fall but has, since his election, not publicly shared her thoughts about him. Privately, is another story.
