obama's take

Obama reportedly dismissed Trump as 'nothing but a bulls----er' to his friends

Former President Barack Obama has spent most of his successor's presidency checked out from reality on tropical islands with millionaires. But when it comes to a frank assessment of President Trump, Obama did not mince words when speaking with his friends last November, People reports.

Trump is "nothing but a bulls----er," Obama reportedly said.

The unnamed friends told People that Obama's opinion "hasn't gotten any better" since Trump took office. "He's deeply concerned with what he's seen," one friend said. "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."
