Obama: ‘Mr. Trump is not succeeding Me‘
Politico ^ | 4/08/16 | Nolan McCaskill

Posted on 04/08/2016 12:47:47 PM PDT by Mozilla

President Barack Obama in his most emphatic terms yet disputed the idea that Donald Trump will win this presidential election.

“I recognize that there is a deep obsession right now about Mr. Trump,” Obama told attendees of a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser Thursday evening in Santa Monica, California. “And one of you pulled me aside and squeezed me hard and said, ‘Tell me that Mr. Trump is not succeeding you.’ And I said, ‘Mr. Trump is not succeeding me.’”

Obama credited Trump and his primary rival, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, for exposing “some of the nonsense that we’ve been dealing with in Congress on a daily basis.”

“People act as if these folks are outliers. But they’re not,” Obama said, pointing to what Republicans in general say during interviews, on talk radio and in town halls. “They’re saying stuff that’s just as wacky as what we’re hearing out of the presidential candidates. It’s just nobody was paying attention.”

This is great news considering that everything Obama touches turns to crap and everything he says is always the complete opposite!

Democrats always want to choose the Republican candidate, hence the polls showing how Trump can’t win.

Obama won’t allow it. He’ll declare Martial Law.

You can always tell who Liberals fear the most - it's the one they attack the most.

It's Trump!

Trump is living inside Obambi’s head already. He must be scared of indictment.

Unless being elected President instantly bestows the winner with the power of prophecy, you don’t know that, Mr. Obama.
Is that what you’re telling us, that you are now omnipotent?
I didn’t think so!

To me, that is the best endorsement a candidate against Hillary could ever, ever have.

Oh? The only way you can be that certain is if you are planning on having him murdered before January 20th.

I wonder how Cruzadres feel knowing King OBastard feels the sane way about Trump as they do.

He plans to use all the Fed power he can warp and abuse to the task of ensuring Trump’s defeat.
