I’ve asked many Leftists hoping for Trump’s demise, “Does he look scared to you?”.
Trump has the confidence of a billionaire celebrity-turned-president married to a trophy model. Next to God, that’s every man’s dream.
And Trump is living the dream. Despite the constant barrage of rock-throwing Democrats, Trump loves his job. Now he finds himself firmly in control of things. Thus, Democrats are now publicly panicking as evidenced in this phone call from Barack Obama.
In the call, Obama comments about the Department of Justice dropping charges against Mike Flynn. As Ernie Plumley notes, Obama seems very concerned:
Private phone call leaked of [[Obama]] saying that the “Rule of law is at risk” because of @GenFlynn being exonerated.
Sounds to me like he’s really worried about himself becoming the center of attention. Believe me, I’d say he’s very concerned. He should be.
Um, the news uh over the last 24 hours, I think has been somewhat downplayed about the Justice Department dropping uh charges against Michael Flynn.
In fact there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone whose been charged with perjury uh just getting off Scott free.
Uh, that’s the kind of stuff where you, you begin to get worried that basic not just institutional norms but uh our basic understanding of rule of law uh is, is at risk.
When you start moving in those directions, uh it can accelerate pretty quickly; as we’ve seen in other places.
So, I am hoping that all of you feel the same sense of urgency that I do. Uh, whenever I campaign I’ve always said this is the most important election, especially obviously when I was on the ballot, that always feels like the most important election.
This one, I’m not on the ballot, but I am, a I am uh pretty darn invested. We gotta, we gotta make this happen.
For those keeping score: Trump Scared 0 v Obama Scared 177
Did you feel the sense of urgency Obama conveyed? Of course you did. There is only one way to interpret that call. Obama fears for his life!
“I am uh pretty darn invested. We gotta, we gotta make this happen”. I can finish Obama’s sentence for him: Or else!
Social media gets it. Philfan09 declared:
Mr O just became Mr. Oh Shit!
Much of the sentiment around Obama’s call provided ominous warnings to him. A person who calls himself “Shells” tweeted:
I’ve learned a lot from watching and studying Obama over his failed 8 year presidency, he is a master word smith. He speaks in terms that many will understand as it pertains to laws we understand and know. In actuality he is speaking of the exposure of their shadow government.
There were many more comments, mostly damning of Obama.
I will bet you dollars to dog turds that Obama won’t be making any predictions about Trump losing the next election. No more late-night talk shows where he declares “Trump will never be president”.
No more smug suggestions that Trump can’t win. Because Trump will win. And Obama knows the footsteps he hears behind him are those of John Durham and AG Barr.
