Will Barack Obama Try To Stay In Office If Donald Trump Wins The Election?

Barack Obama - Public DomainIf Donald Trump wins in November, will Barack Obama leave office and hand over power in an orderly fashion? Normally we would not even have to ask such a question, but these are not normal times. This week, Obama publicly stated that Trump “is unfit to serve as President” and that he is “woefully unprepared to do this job“. In addition, he told the press that Trump “doesn’t have the judgment, the temperament, the understanding to occupy the most powerful position in the world.” If Obama really believes those things are true, would he really just stand aside and hand the keys to the White House to Trump?


Never before have I ever heard a sitting president claim that one of the major party candidates could not function as president. But that is what Obama has just done. The following is an excerpt from a transcript of remarks made by Obama earlier this week that comes directly from the official White House website. I have highlighted certain phrases in bold text, because I want you to truly consider the implications of what he is saying here…

But there have been Republican Presidents with whom I disagreed with, but I didn’t have a doubt that they could function as President. I think I was right, and Mitt Romney and John McCain were wrong on certain policy issues, but I never thought that they couldn’t do the job. And had they won, I would have been disappointed, but I would have said to all Americans they are — this is our President, and I know they’re going to abide by certain norms and rules and common sense, will observe basic decency, will have enough knowledge about economic policy and foreign policy and our constitutional traditions and rule of law that our government will work, and then we’ll compete four years from now to try to win an election.

But that’s not the situation here. And that’s not just my opinion; that is the opinion of many prominent Republicans. There has to come a point at which you say, enough.

Earlier today, I came across an outstanding article by Joseph Farah of WND in which he summarized the claims that Obama was making against Trump…

  • He said Trump would not abide by “norms and rules and common sense.”
  • He questioned whether he would “observe basic decency” should he reach the Oval Office.
  • He said he would have been disappointed to lose the elections of 2008 and 2012, but never doubted whether his rivals in those elections, John McCain and Mitt Romney, could function as president or had the knowledge to make government work. “That’s not the situation here,” he added.
  • He added Trump “doesn’t have the judgment, the temperament, the understanding, to occupy the most powerful position in the world.”
  • He said he was “woefully unprepared to do this job.”
  • Obama said Trump lacked knowledge about Europe, the Middle East and other parts of Asia.

This is some extremely strong language, and I truly wish one of the reporters at the press conference would have asked one incredibly important follow up question.

Will Barack Obama try to stay in office if Donald Trump wins the election?

In his article, Joseph Farah raised the same issue

If no one else will ask the question, I will: “Mr. President, if Donald Trump wins the election to become the next president of the United States, will you willingly and peacefully leave office and cooperate fully with the transition of power the way all of your predecessors in the White House have done in the past?”

It’s a simple question that needs to be asked and answered – given Obama’s highly inflammatory rhetoric over the last week.

Like Farah, I believe that it is a fair question.

If Barack Obama truly believes all of the things he said about Donald Trump, does he also believe that he has a responsibility to keep Donald Trump from taking office?

Absent a major national emergency of some sort, this would be very difficult for Obama to do. But if there were some sort of enormous national crisis between now and next January, Barack Obama could potentially employ some of the extraordinary emergency powers that have been endowed on the office of the president over the past several decades.

There is not a single statute, regulation, executive order or presidential directive that contains all of the powers that a president would possess during a major national emergency. Rather, these powers have been layered on top of one another for a very long period of time, and they come from literally dozens of different laws, regulations, court decisions, executive orders and presidential directives.

One document that I would refer you to is National Security Presidential Directive 51 which was put into effect during the Bush administration. It is all about “national continuity policy” and it defines a “catastrophic emergency” as “any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions”.

In such a scenario, the president would have almost unlimited power, and he would wield enormously powerful executive orders such as this one. If there was a big enough emergency, the president would potentially be able to declare martial law, suspend elections and essentially become a dictator.

Let us hope that we never see such a thing play out in the United States of America.

For the moment, there is not much of a threat that Obama will try to stop Trump from taking office because Hillary Clinton has jumped out to a huge lead in the latest McClatchy-Marist poll

The former secretary of State gained ground in the McClatchy-Marist poll, and Trump lost support. Clinton had the support of 48% of those surveyed, and Trump had 33%. Last month, Clinton had 42% while Trump had 33%.

When third-party candidates are included, Clinton’s lead held strong. She had 45%, and Trump had 31%, Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson had 10% and Green Party candidate Jill Stein had 6%.

And the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that Clinton is leading Trump by a 47 percent to 38 percent margin.

One thing that I found interesting about both of these polls is that they show two third party candidates gaining ground. The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll had Gary Johnson with 10 percent support and Jill Stein at five percent.

Jill Stein is still behind Johnson at this point, but she is potentially the much stronger candidate. If she starts to catch fire with Bernie Sanders supporters, she could possibly even hit the 15 percent threshold for being invited to participate in the upcoming presidential debates.

And Donald Trump certainly needs something to change about this race, because right now he is really struggling.

But there is a long way to go until November, and as we have seen, anything is likely to happen in this election cycle.

  • JF

    If anyone was ever unfit to be POTUS it’s the loony we have right now.

    • Quetzol-43

      The pothead and its puppet masters will try
      to stay in power by starting a confrontation with China over the South China Sea, such a situation would allow them to declare martial law and dissolve the Republic.

      They´ll claim, through the lying press, that it is China being agressive even thought they are the ones that have deliberately increased the likehood of a military confrontation with both China and Russia.

        Quetzol too bad someone would not take him out

    • watchmannonthewall

      Obama was promoted to president just 4 months after the greatest economic crisis in U.S. history since the Great Depression. At that time the only visible problem in the ME was the ongoing wars with Iraq and Afganistan, which he opposed and was going to end. We had peaceful relations with both Russia and China.

      Today both wars are still ongoing but to them we have added wars in Libya, Syria, the Ukraine, and others areas of the world and are building up forces against both Russia and China and have turned the entire ME into an immigration nightmare around the world. He has made one dimensional agreements with Iran and just this week the arraingments of some aspects of that event have become questionable. He has refused to allow oversight of his agreements by requesting an up or down vote on various pieces of legislation affecting the members of this nation.

      He and his administration have presided over the fracturing of the nation into various factions so thata we are more divided than we have been since the Civil War, and have supported using government agencies against various law abiding goups to further his agenda.

      The Justice Department has involved itself in a number of cases where civil rights violations were claimed but none have panned out. The IRS ha been used to investigate right wing organizations but the media sweeps his violations of law under the rug. This actions are taken by one whose training is in constitutional law!

      His AG was involved in running guns to drug dealers in Mexico and ended up resigning but other than that wasn’t held accountable for his actions, likely with presidential support. He and his Sec. of State have worked together to cover up the Bengahzi fiasco, even going to far as to fabricate a report a movie maker incited the violence. We have learned the government is spying on all Americans through the internet and phone activity.

      These things barely touch on all of the ways his administration has shown itself to be incompetent and devious. And now he is going to speak to the American people about how someone else is upfit to be president? Really?

      If the American people have no historical perspective he will get away with it. If we don’t know where we have come from it is impossible to chart a specific course for our destination. We can’t possibly know where we are, let alone where we are going! Hopefully, most Americans can think back to what the world was like just 8 years ago as they listen to this man and get ready to vote in this November’s election.

    • slidenglide

      After almost 8 years Obama is still unfit and woefully unacknowledged to occupy the office. Trump is a business man, the USA is the largest business in the world. Trump knows how to run a business. Obama never counted a cash drawer at the end of the day in a McDonald’s.

      • ImAPepper1942

        I totally agree

  • greanfinisher .

    It might be difficult for Barack Obama to declare martial law absent a national emergency, but certainly not impossible. After all, what’s to constrain him?

    • Russ Miller

      The largest standing army in the world…the American gunowner.

      • greanfinisher .

        The goons certainly didn’t have any trouble in disarming those in New Orleans after the Hurricane Katrina disaster.

        • Russ Miller

          Consider the demographic residing in that town at the time. I’m gonna go out on a limb here. I doubt there were many conservative/Libertarians on this site inhabiting that town.

          • People expect the gun confiscation to be an above board program where police go door to door removing guns from homes. They think martial law will be announced on the evening news with troops rolling into town and setting up on street corners. Those days are long gone and they just don’t work that way anymore. When it happens (as in NOW) it will be low profile, subtle and in stages to avoid the backlash (which everyone is waiting to see overt evidence before they fight back). Martial law won’t be declared but will be activated, most likely under an innocent sounding name. Evacuating people to “shelters” will be the ruse to imprisoning the masses. Gun confiscation will be silent and also under the guise of something else but the unstated purpose will be gun confiscation. That’s how they operate which is why they can say things like “Nobody said they want to round up ALL the guns (sure they will leave us with a few .22 cal rifles)”. Mass vaccinations would be a good one or an outbreak where large numbers of people will have to be quarantined. They definitely will NOT be doing things like this in a way that would trigger a mass response so you can forget waiting for them to signal the roundup is about to begin.

          • Russ Miller

            If what you believe is true, then it would take “forever” to accomplish such a task. However, trying to disarm 300+ million freedom-loving people unnoticed, would be an impossibility.

      • Nellie McConnell

        We do have a problem living close to borders. The criminals who are booked, illegals turned over to BP, then ICE gets them, don’t bother to book them. Turn them loose in someone’s neighborhood. Criminals out next day. Guns stolen all the time. Remember Hitler and what he did to German. Castro did same to Cuba. Why is Obama visiting these countries? My neighbors were kicked out of Cuba. They had relatives in FL and moved to CA. They were thankful for our country and freedom. Good neighbors.

        • Russ Miller

          I understand your concern. However, We are Americans, not Germans. I lived in Germany over seven years, and grew to know how they think. They tend to believe anything their leaders tell them…to a point. Now, it looks like they’re finally getting fed up with their Chancellor…’bout time!

          • JB

            I hear what you’re saying but you don’t think there there tens of thousands of Americans that believe whatever Obama and Hillary say? Clearly they do. One example, they still argue that Hillary is completely innocent of wrong-doing concerning her emails/server despite the FBI delineating her violations. Another example, that she did nothing wrong during or after the Benghazi tragedy. Too many Americans don’t think for themselves and support their party blindly.

          • Russ Miller

            More proof that Democrats are too stupid/street rat crazy to own guns. BTW, virtually all the nutballs that perpetrated the mass shootings were registered Democrats.

      Millions of armed citizens exercising their 2 2nd Amendment right before it is removed……

      • greanfinisher .

        The gun confiscators are now conspiring to disarm Americans by peace meal. In fact, if the cronies succeed in banning firearms to those on the government’s so-called ‘watch list’, that could conceivably cover a cool 150 million Americans. When those on the ‘no fly’ list, the veterans, Social Security recipients, those on any or all prescriptions, people experiencing domestic or dating problems, and those suffering from depression are included in, that could easily soar to 240 million or more. In addition, the goons could expand the list still further by banning firearms to those with traffic violations, those convicted of misdemeanors, any or all of those in debt, dissidents, protesters, the rest of those on the ‘social entitlement’ programs, etc.etc.etc.

      • VigilanteCaregiver

        How many can hold onto the firearms and ammo?

        Also, and this is quite a question, how many are willing to use it for that purpose?

        Best thing is to go through with a Convention of the States and practice gunsmithing with reloading. If the convention fails then such actions should be considered.

        • abner godfrey

          No. Absolutely not. That plays right into Odumbo’s hand. There are no rules specified in the Constitution for how a Convention of States would be run. Once a Convention is called, what is to prevent the dictator and his liberal progressives from taking it over, and eliminating the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 10th, and any other amendments they choose to eliminate? No way. I will not support a Convention of States especially without a Congress that possesses a pair of g o n a d s. The republicans have folded under Obama and the liberals at every turn. What indicates they will not continue to do so?

          • VigilanteCaregiver

            It wouldn’t go through Congress or with Obama: the States do it separately from the Feds. That’s it’s purpose.

            If it fails and does what you outlined, which is a possibility, then civil war is inevitable.

            There’s no perfect answer in this situation, unfortunately. Convention of states is the last resort we have.

          • Guntoter

            Abner, YOU ARE CORRECT. IF a Convention of States was voted for , Once it is called to order, ANYTHING AND EVERY THING can be ADOPTED. Including elimination of any PART of the constitution.

    • 1947goldenjet

      One call to Black Lives Matter and there will be riots in 100 major cities. Small jump from there to order the military in to defend US property (courts, recruitment centers, Federal Offices, etc.). Bingo–martial law.

      • Jan

        I recently saw on the computer pictures of our military moving heavy equipment to within a short distance of Walmart stores through out this country. They said the plan was to shut down the operations of these stores and use them for housing people. Has anyone else seen anything that sounds familiar to the above? I really would like to know what this plan is for.

  • DJohn1

    If Hilliary wins will he say the same thing?
    Here is a person by the words of the FBI has been using poor judgment in keeping an unsecured private server with multiple levels of secret to top secret information on those emails.
    The news media has caught her in lie after lie.
    According to speeches given by our President she is a wonderful woman and fit to be President.
    Seems to be a little bit of bias here.
    Donald may well be unfit for being President. But the only crime I see him making is he has been very obnoxious to a whole bunch of people that are now his enemies politically.
    Is that poor enough judgment to keep him out of the white house?
    Mr. Obama has had his fair share of poor judgment also.
    Should Joe Bidden take over?
    All this does is prove he is basically a human being with all that entails.
    I question the polls. It is unlikely.
    I question the media not reporting the news.
    Trump may lose. Or win at this point in time. Then what?
    If he takes office in January and he is one heart beat away from a Vice President taking over there is going to be a lot to consider.
    I see a whole bunch of accusations on both sides of the fence.
    Before I vote for anyone I would like to see those resolved publicly.
    Insulting Donald? Well he makes a lot more sense than the opposition.
    It would be nice if he gained the incite to have a set of manners.

    • Quetzol-43

      Don´t forget that the already biaised polls have been “tweaked” even further after Hilalry´s support crashed with the DNC wikileaks.

      Hillary intend to cheat her way into power the way she cheated against Bernie Sanderclause.

  • Daniel

    As the prophet Daniel wrote: “the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men” (4:17). He’s giving America (and by extension the world) the leader we deserve i.e. “the basest of men” for our increasing national sins. Note Hillary “Women have the right to murder their unborn children” Clinton vs. Donald “I love money” Trump is like choosing the lesser of two evils or the evil of two lessers. We need Christ’s Kingdom evermore every day!

    • A Storm is Coming

      Trump is Providence´s chosen and he shall triumph.

    • Paul Patriot

      Amen. I have no doubt Hitlery will become president, as, this is what this nation deserves. Our Constitution will be destroyed, confiscation of firearms, and a huge increase in anti-Christian sentiment will spread rapidly, and the liberal, leftist, progressive…….globalist collectivism will be implemented.

      I am no profit, but, it is Crystal clear what is coming upon this nation and world.

      America has already been dealt a death blow, and will continue to lose its sovereignty, no matter who gets in.

      Many call it the judgement of the Living God, as the USA is the greatest perpetrator of depravity the world has ever known, as our depravity and rebellion to God can be seen in almost every nation on the planet.

      Add to that, 40+ years of “freedom of choice” have prevented MILLIONS of human beings from ever being born…….if anyone thinks the Lord Jesus Christ is going to allow this to slide, is In for a disturbing surprise.

      Repent while there is still time.

          I doubt it. Apostasy (leaving your religion) is punishable by death in iSlam. And failing to kill an apostate makes you an apostate under sharia. You’re talking about 2 million per month, and in order to get those kinds of numbers you’d have to involve countries under sharia, and the authorities there wouldn’t tolerate that.

  • Dwayne McDevitt

    I wonder if China and Russia are aware of Obamas plan to create kaos with them so he (Obama) can remain in office and keep Trump out. China and Russia will just stand by at least until after the election, no matter how bad Obama wants to start a war. If China and Russia want to really hurt Obama all they need to do is not be goaded into a war.

    • Chaos, not kaos.

      • He’s no doubt referring to the KAOS of Get Smart fame, with Bernie Kopell as Siegfried something or other?

  • K

    The establishment has already shown their mindless support for Hillary. So why would you believe polls? If their intention is to steal the election. Would you not rig the polls first? You can not have someone behind in the polls and successfully steal the election. No, when people object to the outcome. When they yell the election is fixed. You need the polls to point to. See she has been ahead for months, what you are saying is wrong. Desperate people do desperate things. Hillary supporters are desperate, that we remain on this road to destruction.

  • AverGo

    Presidents are selected, not elected. Votes are the illusion of choice.

      I am not so sure about that. How many millennials do honestly you think are capable of critical thinking? Since the end of WWII, the American (and Canadian) citizens have been dumbed down by various means employed by the globalists. I would be shocked is a civil war really did break out. If it did, it will be the generations prior to the millennials who will be fighting. The latter will most likely will be too busy chasing Pokeman…..

    Whether a candidate is fit for office as POTUS is decided solely by the voters. And if in office POTUS commits a crime there is impeachment.

    Obama talk of Trump being unfit is pure BS. First Obama himself is a most unfit candidate before he fooled voters into giving him the job. Second, Trump at 70, a globe toddling business tycoon billionaire, is far more knowledgeable and accomplished than Obama, with a social worker background, was or can ever be.

    Obama does not like Trump personality and attacks him endlessly. Well, you can bet Trump does not like Obama personality as much. But do you see him attacking Obama such viciously? Trump tough talk is towards those he has policy differences. He attacks only when being attacked. He reserve his biggest attacks on the sorry state of the United States. This is the result of Obama, Bush and Clinton presidency. Obama deny the U.S. is in such a sorry state – what do you expect him to say? He keep saying the U.S. is the greatest country in the world, the greatest ever in history. He knows there are still millions of fools in the country who not only listen to him but vote for his nasty puppet Hillary. But I know there isn’t one single fool in the entire world who listen to Obama the POTUS anymore.

    There is a long time until the election, politically speaking. Polls show Mr. Trump within 3 points of Mrs. Clinton so it is really a dead heat right now.

    President Obama’s blather about Mr. Trump is just shameless political bluster. Mr. Trump is more qualified to be President than Mr. Obama was prior to his Romanesque crowning by so many in 2008. I can still recall my own disgust.

    If Mr. Obama refused to leave office and once the new President Trump takes the oath of office, President Trump would order federal marshall’s to place Mr. Obama under arrest. A termed out President has no Constitutional power to remain in office, period. His belongings would be packed up, moved out into storage, and he and his family would effectively be evicted from the White House.

  • Abe

    I still laugh when I’m reminded of the polls just before Minnesotans shocked the country and voted in Jessie Ventura as Gov. of MN.

    I thought we could of never done worse than Bush, then came Obama. Obama is an expert in ineptness.
    I suspect Obama’s worse nightmare would be Trump winning, and getting Obama in court for fraud. I’d love to watch AG Trey Gowdy grill Obama on the idiot tube.

    I still think it’s possible for the November elections to be called off by some massive false flag attack on the American people. Things are heating up in the Spratley Islands with China, the USA, and Philippines. Then there’s a financial meltdown that looks to be an absolute certainty in Sept.

    I have no doubt them Psycho Globalists have something up there sleeves to skew the election to get there girl Hitlary in the white house, or to keep there puppet in. Anyone can see that Trump is scaring the living hell out of them, just by all the dirty tricks they’re pulling on Trump.

    If Hillary takes office, I’m sure at least 4 separate factions would seek her overthrow politically – at least 1 violently.

  • greanfinisher .

    All that I can tell you is that if the gun confiscatin’ hag wins, she will almost certainly appoint a gun control liberal for the Supreme Court. Soon afterwards, the Court will quickly overturn the Heller decision thereby rendering the Second Amendment irrelevant. The Hillary beast will then ban all of the so-called ‘assault weapons’ (and associated ammunition, magazines, etc.) unilaterally, and require the disposal of such firearms in private hands. More bans and confiscations will soon follow. You see, the Heller Decision will likely be overturned so there would be absolutely nothing at all to constrain the witch from totally disarming the American people.

    • timu2cool

      Except the American people

      • greanfinisher .

        The goons didn’t seem to have any trouble disarming those in New Orleans during the Hurricane Katrina disaster. Regardless, I wouldn’t trust any politician to adhere to the Second Amendment. Strictly speaking, we actually have few rights at the moment except to keep and bear arms.

  • MPH

    The US Constitution, the highest law of the land, states that a president serves a 4 year term. Doesn’t matter what happens, at noon on Jan 20, 2017, Obama is no longer president. This is why when a president is reelected consecutively, he still has to retake the oath of office. One 4 year term ended, a new one begins, and the oath has to be taken prior to the new presidential term starting.

  • DJohn1

    Saw a story from Yahoo claiming Trump had resigned the nomination yesterday August 6. Story has since disappeared. From a Charlotteville news service. They also claimed 59 republicans have put their name in to take his place.
    Searched all over for confirmation with no luck.
    IF Trump is serious about running for President he really needs to dump all the silly statements he has made and come up with a real agenda that actually makes sense if he becomes our next President.
    As a business man he has the organization to do just that.
    I think he is playing a game and it has suddenly become serious because too many people actually want him to run the country differently than his predecessors.
    I think he had no expectations of really winning and this has taken him by surprise that a substantial number of people would vote for him despite his attempts to make himself an unrealistic candidate.
    I am gratefully not eligible for that office. I earned my citizenship in the U.S. Air Force many years ago.
    If I were running a campaign for Trump I would definitely change a lot of responses to issues.
    Instead of a wall I would make it financially unacceptable for a Mexican illegal family to remain here. That means tax penalties for anyone illegally hiring them to the tune of millions of dollars.
    If they cannot legally work and pay taxes like the rest of us then either the IRS law is illegal(discriminatory) or it has to be enforced.
    It is illegal for a citizen or alien to not register for the draft. Enforce the law.
    Make it an impeachable offense for the President of this country to not enforce the laws in accordance with his or her responsibilities as spelled out in the constitution. I think that has been the law since Jackson was President.
    Change the law that gives a President the right to make permanent Executive Orders. Make them all expire when a President leaves office or within 90 days of such leaving of office.
    Put the Congress in the position of making laws.
    Executive orders are for emergency use only.
    Get the illegal immigration of 100s of thousands of Muslims to this country stopped, period.
    Trump is right. Only legal immigration can happen.
    Change our election laws to allow multiple different political parties to participate. Effectively do away with the monopoly we currently have.
    If they are not doing their job, make it easy to fire them out of office.
    DO away with multiple terms of office. Restrict it to two 6 year terms or six 2 year terms of office. Depending on the house of congress.
    Break up the media monopoly so no one media is owned by any one organization. Meaning multiple ownership of the same kind of media so it does not become a weapon of politics.
    Encourage the fifth estate to be competitive with one another so that it works as originally intended.
    Gradually return to a system of economics that protects our local industry with possible tariffs or a currency competitive with foreign currencies so jobs remain here.
    It didn’t happen over night and it will not happen that tariffs will work unless it is a gradual thing. It is like the bends with a diver. The sudden use of tariffs will cause terrible inflation.
    Do away with privilege laws of lawyers. You cannot get workman’s comp without giving a lawyer 1/3 of the back pay involved.
    Do away with the draft period. It is discriminatory.
    Make it illegal to get an abortion. It is murder of a child plain and simple.
    A lot of what I say here is really simply common sense. It apparently is not so common in Congress.

    I would not be surprised if a large scale attack happens to a major urban area before november or on election night itself

    • greanfinisher .

      If anything of that magnitude should occur before noon on January 20, 2017, Barack Obama would almost certainly invoke martial law. Then he could remain in office indefinitely.

    I think the black muslim usurper has never abided by “norms and rules and common sense,” as well as “observe basic decency.” He allows Jews to be murdered in Israel by terrorist and Christians to be murdered by ISIS and other muslims all over the world. What a hypocrite!

    • iris

      Don’t have a problem with the Black part, but the rest, I totally agree with you on, he’s the most openly anti Semitic, anti Christian, anti U.S. president we’ve ever had.

  • Deborah Foehr

    The current president had no experience in anything except leading racial issues that all failed in Chicago. No knowledge of anything.

    • ImAPepper1942

      You forgot to mention golf. He is just experienced in it; I did not say he was good at it!

  • NellieBucket

    “Obama” should never have been given the keys to the White House. If anyone was ever unfit to be president, it is Obama. Why do you elect a president who hates his own country? (if it is indeed his country). He’s not bright, and has held on to office through corrupt means and the support of liberal corrupt leaders, and ignorant supporters. Who does he think he is calling Trump unfit? Trump is a presidential candidate because the majority supports him. Does Obama think he has more knowledge than anyone else? Obama is an embarrassment to our nation.

  • prm2012

    Barack Hussein Obama the Blowhard, thinks he is the King/Dictator already. He had no Idea what to do as a President when he took office.
    He still don’t have a clew what he is doing, when he is ask about something that is happening in the Country or the World, he has the same answer every time. Oh I heard about that in the Media News, that tells me he don’t even know what is going on.

    He has to get ready for his next golf game, or another vacation,
    I believe he should go to Kenya and stay, that is where he belongs.
    Not in these United States of America.

    He has been on the job training for near eight years now and still don’t have a clew what is is doing, sad state of affairs, “IMPEACH him NOW”
    He is a worthless LYING Snake in the grass, UNFIT to be in that office.

  • Phil Esposito

    Oh he’ll leave office or we’ll make him leave office. When Trump wins the election, come Jan 20th he is in charge and will command the capitol police to remove him.

    • ImAPepper1942

      I totally agree.
      I saw Hillary’s America. There was just me and 15 older than me folks, mostly couples.
      After the movie ended, all the older folks clapped. I know who they are going to vote for!

  • Lee Gilmer

    Anybody else remember Robert Ludlum and his “conspiracy theories” about a small international cadre of the uber-rich ruthlessly and corruptly controlling the world economy, global politics, etc.? Soros, Obama, Slick Willie, Hillieary, and their sycophants have convinced me that Ludlum actually knew what he was writing about. Donald Trump with all his faults is our only hope for saving America.

  • armydadtexas

    I hope the little dictator wanna be is prepared to be thrown out of the White House on his Commie A$$

  • sue garrity

    Everything Obama is saying about Trump is the mirror image of himself. His arrogance is beyond anything known to man! However that aside I have felt all along that the worst is yet to come. If Hillary doesn’t win the election to carry on his lunacy he will call for drastic measures by creating an emergency national disaster. He did not put martial laws in his hands for nothing, he is a very cunning sly snake that is just waiting to strike.
    Just think about this Hillary gets elected and he gets appointed to the Supreme Court Trump wins the election and the traitor in chief declares martial law and stays in office. It’s a win win for him. What does that make us?

  • Tunaby

    I almost fell off my sofa when I heard Obama;s critique of Mr. Trump!!
    Never in the history of our country have we had a more incompetent, impotent, and delusional person in the White House.
    He has had nothing on his mind since taking office but the destruction of our country, its’ Constitution and any & all values that this country was built on. He is destroying our Military mentally and physically. Our men and women train to accomplish a winning outcome. It’s drilled into them from the first second they arrive at basic training. Those Drill Instructors do have a way with their words!!:OL. Then, along comes Obama whose only claim to fame was that of being a community activist, and very J.V. Senator.
    Yet his insane arrogance and delusional attitude led him to believe that he could make his version of the Rules of Engagement for men and women in combat. His priority is to win the hearts and minds of those that want to kill our men and women, not the lives and welfare of our troops.He has handcuffed them with their hands behind their backs. Mr. Obama is very proficient in painting bull eyes on the backs of those who defend us overseas and here at home( our Police officers)
    Being aware of certain recent very quietly done executive orders that he has signed in recent months. I sincerely believe that he has all ready set the wheels in motion to declare martial law All he needs is a little riot or two to happen- then he can swoop in,and become the dictator of our country. I am not at all sure that he wouldn’t implement that , even if Clinton won. Ultimate power is extremely addictive, and he has almost eight years time in with extreme power.
    The military has to follow his orders even against us. He is in the process of blackmailing many of the smaller Police departments in to becoming federalized (under federal control). If they refuse, they are threatened with withdrawal of all federal funding.
    The gov. “machine” is extremely strong with great wealth, but we are Americans! We don’t give up. Our history started with physical and political battles against tyranny whether it comes from within or from without. So, should any of this come to past, it will be very hard, but with God,s help, we will prevail.I am 77 and disabled, can’t do much physically to help, but I am a fighter, and I love my country, and I’ve always believed that where there is a will, there is a way.
    Take care & God Bless

  • Kelly McConnell

    obama’s got some nerve questioning Trump’s decency. Especially since obama has none. Plus as a Chicago minion, what did he know about international affairs – regardless of what he knew he and hitlery screwed all international policies completely up. We’ll take our chances with Trump, he certainly couldn’t be any worse than these two.

  • Janthony132

    This asshole should not open his racial bigoted mouth. His legacy as President will be noted in History as the worse ever..be noted as an Anti-American, hell bent on trashing our country.

  • Constitution_89

    Plain and simple: I and every American Citizen that was born in America to a American Citizen that was born here prior to 1983 and not after ( without recognizing the legitimacy of the treasonous Hart-Cellar Immigration Act of 1965 introduced by the Democrat Party with the intent of restructuring the demographics [ the American Citizen population] of the country. Those who arrived here from Mexico, Central and South America and the Caribbean NEVER knowing or caring about American history, the meaning and intention of a Constitutional Republic, our culture and traditions or willing for the most part to integrate meaningfully into our system are NOT Constitutionally, legitimately included in this definition of an American Citizen ) must refuse ANY and ALL laws, mandates, decrees and or Executive Orders issued by the Tyrants who took/ held the office of the President after November 22, 1963 that are NOT found in, or considered lawful by the Constitution of the United States of America period. If this FRAUD, this Muslim Brotherhood Subversive, ISIS Commander pulls any such stunt especially Martial Law, he must IMMEDIATELY be arrested. We The People MUST NOT TOLERATE such a contrived action against our Freedoms and Liberties any longer, and ANYONE in the military or police who move to enforce ANY UNCONSTITUTIONAL ACTION by this FRAUD will be considered ENEMIES of the U.S.A.

    My 12year old grand baby could do a better job than what we have running our country know.TRUMP will do a very good job .,Trump makes Money,the goof we have know gives it all away.He does not have a clue

  • jrm55

    And so Obama decides Trump is unfit, and declares a national emergency the day after Trump wins the election. Martial law is enacted, cities are baracaded in, military presence is in force. The next day, civil war begins…. and America comes to an end with Obama as a self-declared king….. That’s what I predict…

    • timu2cool

      The men and women in the us armed forces take an oath to defend the constitution.
      You prediction cannot happen,if these brave souls keep their oath.

  • nekksys

    Hypothesis: Obama will not leave office if Trump is elected.

    What happens if Johnson or Stein win? Wouldn’t that completely upset Obama’s apple cart?

    Feel the Johnson!!! or Pick up the Stein!!!

  • P>Hopkins

    Oh he’ll go. Willingly or otherwise but he WILL vacate that office when the time comes

  • P>Hopkins

    Donald Trump is not struggling. The polls quoted in this story are all dubious at best. Trump will win and it’ll be a landslide
