Obama is Trying to Undermine Trump

Obama is Trying to Undermine Trump

“We can’t hide behind a wall.”

When Donald Trump won the election last fall, many people wondered if Obama would be as courteous as his predecessor George W. Bush. Would Obama be able to fade into the background and stay out of policy debates?

Now we know the answer is no. The spotlight is simply too alluring for Obama, who revels in attention. He is even mirroring Trump’s actions in some ways.

Alex Pfeiffer writes at the Daily Caller:

Shadow President? Obama Meets With South Korean President To Discuss Trump

Former President Barack Obama seems to be feeling nostalgic for his old job, meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in Monday for 40 minutes.

The Korea Herald reported that Moon spoke about his recent meetings with President Trump in Washington and asked Obama for his advice on how to improve that relationship.

The meeting came after Obama spoke at the Asian Leadership Conference and the Fourth Congress of Indonesian Diaspora in Jakarta. There he attacked Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate change accord.

“In Paris, we came together around the most ambitious agreement in history about climate change, an agreement that even with the temporary absence of American leadership can still give our children a fighting chance,” Obama said in Indonesia.

The former president had said before leaving office that he appreciated his predecessor George W. Bush’s silence during his tenure, but also contended that he’s “still a citizen and that carries with it duties and obligations.”

FOX News covered this last night. Be sure to watch to the end to hear Marie Harf, formerly of the State Department under Obama, trying to defend his actions.

This is not a new development. Edward-Isaac Dovere wrote at Politico in May:

How Obama not so subtly undercuts Trump

When they realized former President Barack Obama was going to be in Berlin the same day President Donald Trump was going to be in Brussels, Angela Merkel was the one who called the White House to break the news.

The German chancellor invited Obama to the event in front of the Brandenburg Gate last year, before the election. Officially part of a multi-day gathering sponsored by the Protestant church in Germany, focused on youth and highlighting an exchange program between Berlin and Chicago, it was really about letting Obama boost his friend ahead of her fall reelection campaign and begin the international phase of his own post-presidency.

But, as soon as he accepted earlier this year, it also became an integral piece of Obama’s approach to Trump: present the contrast by continuing to pop up, push back on the sense that Trump’s winning while barely saying a word explicitly about Trump.

The only request the former president’s aides made of the organizers of the Berlin event was it not be structured as an Obama versus Trump debate. Other than that, they said, “the conversation can go where it will.”

“In this new world we live in, we can’t isolate ourselves. We can’t hide behind a wall,” Obama said Thursday, in the closest he came to directly taking on his successor.

Obama walks a fine line by not mentioning Trump or his policies explicitly but what he’s doing is clear.

    Punk? You are being too kind.

      Not even a punk – obama is too much of a pussy to do his own physical fighting.

      But above all, the former dwarf president is the greatest gun salesman in history, and is the greatest conservative vote-getter since Ronald Reagan.

      But even above THAT, the media-diapered-one will go down in history alongside neville chamberlain as one of history’s great fool: chamberlain for trusting hitler, and obama for trusting hillary clinton.

    The Obamas have NEVER had any CLASS. No matter how much money he makes from trading upon having been president, he’s still low class. He can adopt an East Coast liberal accent and cadence, he can dress in expensive clothes, but he’s still the kid his mother abandoned.

it’s going to be glorious when Trump takes him down on Twitter…

      Milhouse in reply to moonmoth. | July 4, 2017 at 6:30 pm

      Charge him with what? He hasn’t taken up arms against the USA, he hasn’t adhered to any of their enemies, and he’s not plotting to overthrow the government by force. The Logan Act won’t survive its first contact with a court, which is why no administration has ever dare bring it near one.

        bransonb in reply to Milhouse. | July 5, 2017 at 1:14 am

        How about trying to destroy America. How about he had surveillance of Trump during the campaign. How about him not doing anything about Killary knowing she’s a crook. How about not doing anything about Killary not handing over all of her emails. How about him doing nothing about Killary destroying evidence. And that’s just a few of the things he’s guilty of. Wake up. Anyone that loves Obama is NOT a patriot!

          Milhouse in reply to bransonb. | July 5, 2017 at 8:58 am

          None of those things are crimes, and if you’re advocating depriving someone of life, liberty, or property without due process of law then you’re a bigger enemy of America than he is.

ruskisinyourcovfefe | July 4, 2017 at 4:28 pm

isn’t this prima facie a violation of the Logan Act? If Flynn talking about sanctions with Kislyak is an alleged violation, why isn’t Obama talking about the Paris accord a violation?

    Neither one is.

      wrong – only POTUS not ex is permitted to carry out foreign policy – lock Obumbler up as a violator of Logan act and many other traitorous things.

        clintack in reply to 4th armored div. | July 4, 2017 at 10:15 pm

        You’d need evidence that he was negotiating with the President of South Korea — not just talking to him.

        It’s a violation of the norms and traditions we’ve lived by for years… and it shows just how crass and arrogant Mr. Obama is. But it’s not a crime.

          Mannie in reply to clintack. | July 5, 2017 at 8:37 am

          Then it should be handled diplomatically. Our ambassador to ROK should give a stern message to his counterpart, that we consider this an unfriendly act that jeopardises our relationship with their country. All our other ambassadors should be directed to give similar messages to their counterparts and to report back to the POTUS.

          Freeze the bastard out. And note which countries host him, and punish them.

          Milhouse in reply to clintack. | July 5, 2017 at 9:02 am

          Even under the blatantly illegal Logan Act you’d have to prove not only that he was negotiating but that he was doing so to frustrate the measures of the USA. But it really doesn’t matter, because that so-called Act is not a law. Congress had no authority to pass it, the president had no authority to sign it, and it’s an utter nullity, which every person should feel free to violate at will. Calling for someone to be tried for a non-crime is itself a violation of everything this country stands for, and a worse offense than anything you’re accusing 0bama of doing.

          tom swift in reply to clintack. | July 5, 2017 at 3:02 pm

          because that so-called Act is not a law.

          It is until a Federal court says otherwise.

“’In this new world we live in, we can’t isolate ourselves. We can’t hide behind a wall,’ Obama said Thursday.”
Is that the same attitude he took when the Secret Service failed to keep intruders from jumping the White House fence and getting within
a few tens of meters of his family’s quarters?


Obama loves the attention even if it shows he’s an ass. All he can promise world leaders is a reach around. Donald Trump is President and controls the power of the USA.

    But remember: Obama wears a media diaper, and like hillary clinton, he is dumb enough to believe his own press.

    He’s irrelevant, and is digging his own public relations grave – something very hard to do, when you wear a media diaper.

    That diaper has gotten very old and very smelly.

    Everyone relevant now holds their nose when obama’s around.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to Old0311. | July 5, 2017 at 2:40 pm

    So true!

    Those “world leaders” need a sign.

    “Obama Mooned Me!”

Sedition…. you’re soaking in it.

Moon spoke about his recent meetings with President Trump in Washington and asked Obama for his advice on how to improve that relationship.

I hope he didn’t set his expectations very high.

Obama Meets With South Korean President To Discuss Trump

I wonder who paid for his trip to South Korea?

There he attacked Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate change accord.

He doesn’t seem to be too concerned about HIS carbon footprint, flying all over the world like he’s still President.

      Milhouse in reply to sjf_control. | July 5, 2017 at 9:05 am

      How is that your business? How he spends his own money is nobody’s business but his and his wife’s, just as it’s nobody’s business if Trump wants an extra scoop of his own ice cream that he paid for.

        sjf_control in reply to Milhouse. | July 5, 2017 at 9:35 am

        My point was regarding his “carbon footprint”. I don’t care how he spends his money — unless we the people are paying for it. And I don’t see him sitting in coach.

        tom swift in reply to Milhouse. | July 5, 2017 at 3:03 pm

        Is it his own money? Assuming that anyone in Obama’s position is spending his own money is, at best, rash.

An empty suit propped up by the media reading old tired Marxist tripe from a teleprompter.

Someone demonstrably stupid and yet convinced of their own infallibility, even though unable to think or emote.

A politician or celebrity who has no resume, no plan, no clue, and cannot speak without someone telling them what to say.

Don’t spend too much time analyzing Obama as though he thinks like you do. His personality traits of narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy fit well with the methods of Alinsky. Obama is behaving like I expect him to behave and I expect him to never stop being Obama. He was, is, and always will be a danger to liberty, rule of law, and the USA in general. He and his MSM hacks will never go away.

    “Dim-witted” Psychos!

    Alfred Hitchcock would have a field day making new exciting movies, if the great director were still alive.

Good oppty for Trump to strike back at Obama with a few Tweets about Obama as worst president ever. How about:
Obama: “We can’t drill our way to lower oil prices!” Pffft. 8 wasted yrs.

Obama spent 1st 4 yrs raising Muslim Brotherhood to power on Egypt. MB is parent of al Qaeda.

Wonderful Egyptian people stood up as one and repudiated BHO/MB/AQ. Largest public “NO!” ever.

Then Barack + Hillary handed Libya to AQ, then Syria, then IRAQ, where AQI remnant became ISIS.

We are killing AQI/ISIS there again. Thx nothing Barack. Whose side are you on???

Come on Trump, Tweet mom-jeans Barry into oblivion! Leftists are nothing without their almost complete media monopoly. Can’t last five seconds in a fair fight. Put him down and shave his head!

    “Thx nothing Barack. Whose side are you on???..”

    Obama is on the side of the enemy. His only saving grace is his lack of talent – otherwise, we’d be toast right not.

    Look at what Trump has achieved in 6 months using the power of the presidency – then compare what obama has accomplished (towards his and valerie jarrett’s alignant goals) in 8 years. And all this while the democrat media is at war with Trump, but had wrapped obama in a diaper for 8 years.

    Obama is a moron, as presidents go. Even Jimmy Carter makes him look lame.

      Milhouse in reply to | July 5, 2017 at 9:08 am

      Well, that’s the thing, though. He’s not on the side of any specific enemy of the USA, and therefore hasn’t committed treason. He’s not for anyone, just against us, and will therefore help whoever else is against us, even if he doesn’t particularly like them either. Such as Iran, for which he surely has no love, but was willing to help in order to take his own country down a notch. By definition that’s not treason, but it’s certainly not patriotic.

        tom swift in reply to Milhouse. | July 5, 2017 at 3:06 pm

        but was willing to help

        That’s where the treason argument might apply. His motivations don’t have anything to do with it.

          Milhouse in reply to tom swift. | July 6, 2017 at 1:39 am

          Yes, they do. They’re absolutely key. There are only two kinds of treason: taking up arms against the USA, or adhering to their enemies. The first doesn’t depend on motive; the second is all about motive, although it also requires an overt act.

Whose side is barraaccckk on? Well that’s simple, the highest bidder…

Trump needs to deal severely with ANY government that entertains the chump

Most of the time, Obama is making these anti-American pronouncements abroad. He has no case to make to Americans who increasingly reject globalism now that it has been exposed for what it is. He still fancies himself President of the World. President was just a springboard for his greatest ambition.

The same is true of so many others. John Brennan, John McCain, John Kerry, etc… This should be noted and made a big part of the globalism vs national sovereignty narrative. The nationalists make their case to America. The globalists make their case to everyone else.

But remember — when President-elect Trump took phone calls from world leaders, that was treason.

Obama is a Muslim sympathizing POS, always has been, and always will be.

The irony of a president who hid behind walls while forcing global refugee crises.

The conflicts of interest suffered by a Pro-Choice president (and progressive organizations and churches) who like elective wars and oppose emigration reform. The gentle lapping waves in paradise, a retreat far away from home, must calm his cognitive dissonance.

Henry Hawkins | July 4, 2017 at 10:28 pm

I can’t imagine anything better than post-presidency Obama continuing to destroy the Democrat Party. He’ll only worsen the growing anger between the far left wing of the party, the Berniebots, and the now old school Hillarians, all of whom are battling for control over a party that has no viable platform and are too busy fighting to notice it. With any luck, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and Viet Nam veteran John Kerry will run their mouths as well. Then there’s Pelosi, Podesta, Howard Dean, Crazy Maxine, all the Hollywood mouths running, etc. etc.

Keep this up and in three years the highest ranking Democrat will be the dog catcher in Dorkyank, Wyoming.

“When Donald Trump won the election last fall, many people wondered if Obama would be as courteous as his predecessor George W. Bush.”

Little to no chance of this happening.

Barack Hussein Obama is a petty little man. Has no sense of humility or propriety. He needs to move somewhere he can live in his royalty, Kenya sounds good.

The Treasonous Criminal Zerobama should be arrested and charged under the Logan act.

Our ambassador to ROK should have a stern discussion with his counterpart stressing that meeting with Zerobama endangers our relationship, and that nothing Zerobama says will carry any weight with the US Government.

Trump should issue orders to all our Ambassadors to meet with their counterparts, to convey the same message, and to render a report of the meeting to the POTUS.

    Milhouse in reply to Mannie. | July 5, 2017 at 9:23 am

    Maybe you should be arrested and tried with betraying the USA by advocating arresting and trying someone for a non-crime.

    The so-called “Logan Act” is not a law, and the moment anyone tries taking it into a courtroom it will crumble like a dessicated scrap of toilet paper in a slight breeze. There’s a reason no prosecutor has ever dared to attempt it. Not that 0bama has violated it, but I wouldn’t care if he had, since the constitution guarantees his right to do so.

    Our ambassadors are supposed to represent the interests of the United States, not the petty rivalries of a puerile president. The president is not the United States; he is merely a servant, and his hurt pride is not an interest of the US. Foreign leaders meeting 0bama, or Jimmy Carter, or Bozo the Clown, can’t possibly do any harm to the USA, so damaging our foreign relations in order to stop it is itself a form of treason.

      The puerile one is the Treasonous Criminal Zerobama a non government nobody, who has no authority, whatsoever, to speak for the United States. Our allies should be reminded of that.

      Yes, damaging our relations with foreign countries is treason. Zerobama needs to hang for that.

      Mac45 in reply to Milhouse. | July 5, 2017 at 1:08 pm

      Actually, the Logan Act is a REAL federal law and violation thereof is a felony. There has only been one indictment for violation of the act and that did not result in a conviction [perhaps because it involved a newspaper].

      The main problem with enforcing the provisions of the Logan Act is its vague language. Not only are the actions necessary for a violation of the act not specified, with any degree of clarity, but the foreign government interacted with to be involved in a dispute ot controversy with the United States and that the actions of the US party be an attempt to intervene in that dispute or controversy. There are several other federal laws which more clearly detail specific actions which run counter to the foreign policy aims of the United States. These are more generally used for criminal prosecutions.

      In the case of a former President, meeting with a foreign government would likely not be a violation of the Logan Act, unless the former President took a position contrary to the official position of the United States, without the permission or authorization of the current administration, and presented himself as being able to influence US policy to the benefit of the foreign power.

      tom swift in reply to Milhouse. | July 5, 2017 at 3:14 pm

      The so-called “Logan Act” is not a law

      You insist on this fantasy to the point of mania.

      Laws which can land violators in prison are indeed laws, no matter what the sea lawyers claim.

      and the moment anyone tries taking it into a courtroom it will crumble

      And when that actually happens, your insistent statements may indeed turn out to be true. But until then, they’re rubbish.

      Meanwhile, while I’d say that the Logan Act was a very bad idea, and was sloppily developed and incompetently drafted, that’s of little consequence, as the Legislature and the Courts are not in the habit of consulting me on such things.
