Trump Will Have Transition Support From the Obamas

Trump Will Have Transition Support From the Obamas

“It is important for the health of this nation that we support the commander in chief”

http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/michelle-obama-trump-transition-232845

In her final interview as First Lady, Michelle Obama pledged her support to the incoming Trump administration.

Mrs. Obama’s final interview was with Oprah.

Politico reported:

“As I’ve said time and time again, words matter,” the first lady told Oprah Winfrey in an interview broadcast Monday. “And they matter most to our kids. And the words that we say moving forward — all of us — it matters, which is one of the reasons why Barack and I are so supportive of this transition.”

“Because no matter how we felt going into it, it is important for the health of this nation that we support the commander in chief,” she said, still refusing to use Trump’s name. “Wasn’t done when my husband took office, but we’re going high, and this is what’s best for the country. So we are gonna be there for the next president and do whatever we have to do to make sure that he is successful because if he succeeds, we all succeed.”

Mrs. Obama also discussed how she was following Mrs. Bush’s lead by offering advice to Melania Trump:

In a separate clip that aired Monday morning, Obama took a softer tone, remarking that she followed Laura Bush’s lead and told Melania Trump when the two met privately at the White House, “You really don’t know what you don’t know until you’re here, so the door’s open.”

“I’m not new in this ‘going high’ thing,” she added. “I’m modeling what was done for me by the Bushes.”

When asked if she had plans to run for office, Mrs. Obama emphatically denied the rumors saying she wasn’t “coy” and if she had plans to do so, she would say as much. “It’s not something that you cavalierly just sort of ask a family to do again, but let me just tell America: This is hard. It’s a hard job. I said it on the campaign trail. It requires a lot of sacrifice. It is a weighty thing,” she said.

You didn’t include all of her comments. Here is one from another source that she shared in that interview.

“You know, this — this past election was challenging for me as a — as a citizen. To watch and experience. It was painful,” she said.

She’s “Going high”? The two of them seem to think that no one hears or sees what they do or say on other venues. Both of them insult Trump almost daily but they are going high on the transition! What a pair! The next month is going to seem like an eternity to most of us.

that low rent POS hasn’t an honest bone in her oversize body…

she and her useless #SCOAMF “husband” need to FOAD.

Never stop lying is their mantra.
She’s as ugly as her butt is wide.
Hurry up January 20th.

No need for any “help” except to file under “what not to do while in office.” Things that will change are that Trump won’t be taking continuous vacations or playing golf. He knows how to work for a living.

Having personally encountered persons with a similar mindset as BHO, I adamantly believed he was wrong for the presidency. Little that I’ve seen and heard since Election 2008 has changed this view. While there’s still a month to go, I’m glad to have lived to see this administration coming to an end.

BHO, as well as Michelle, had every opportunity before them, at the inception of his administration, to embark upon a path of goodwill. Instead, they choose to speak disparagingly of America on foreign trips. He wasn’t about to govern by consensus. Rather, it was compulsion and bending to his willfulness. As time passed, the initial goodwill extended to him began to fade with resentment and frustration taking its place, at least for an increasing number of people. “Open and Change” became tarnished and even a nightmare for some. Now, many are so eagerly anticipating Inauguration Day, January 20, 2017.

As far as the transition is concerned, Team Trump will be fine, regardless of what the Obamas do or don’t do. It’s an excellent team, one experienced with difficult people. So, if Michelle wants to support Commander-in-Chief Donald J. Trump for the “health” of The United States, she and hubby can follow “president” as established by former Presidents and First Ladies. Should they do this, at least we’ll have a little something to be thankful for concerning them.

First Rule of Back-Stabbing: Stay Close to Your Target!

    Second rule of backstabbing: Try to fool the bystanders that there’s nothing to see here and your intentions with the knife are noble.

That’s Mrs. Choom King’s idea of “going high”, is it?

Another asshat.

“We are going to be there for the Next POTUS”

Yes, of course, you are staying right there in DC to make comments as early and often as you can to any media bozo that will listen in order to undermine the incoming regime.

Just remember what House Harkonnen did to House Atreidies after the peaceful transfer of Arrakis.

    and remember what House Atreidies did to House Harkonnen in the end…

    the Obola family makes the Clintons look like high class, honorable people.

    the Demon Rats are free falling towards the lowest common denominator.

I seriously doubt that the Bush White House made the transition difficult for Obama.

I look forward to the day when we elect a President that happens to be Black, but runs on his abilities, accomplishments and vision.

Tammy Bruce called it: upon the two Obamas coming on the scene, she quickly assessed them as “low-lifes” and “trash.”

The nose-picking and crotch-scratching obamas have proved themselves to be undeserving of even those adjectives.

The fraud of “barack hussein obama”… Ugh.

For eight years, Barack Obama has publicly and privately praised the Bush White House transition effort. Certainly it wasn’t a problem with Congress – the Democrats held both houses. Every report I have read about the transition – maybe a dozen – has cited Obama wanting to continue the precedent George W. Bush set.

So, I have no idea where Michelle came up with this, completely undercutting what her husband has been saying for a long time to the best of my knowledge.

Why would Trump want help from people who would sabotage him if they had the opportunity?

So after leaving fires burning and starting a few, they are going to “help”? that’s nothing more than a statement made to boost his ratings the last week.
