This is a hoot
(Politico) Get serious or get played, President Barack Obama told President-elect Donald Trump here Thursday — warning his successor that he’ll lose elections and people will die if he doesn’t shape up.
As impressive as the campaign he ran was, that won’t translate to governing, Obama said he told Trump in their long private post-election Oval Office meeting last week. (snip)
Obama said he told Trump in their private meeting that “what may work in generating enthusiasm or passion during elections may be different in terms of what will work in terms of unifying the country and gaining the trust of even those who don’t support him.” (snip)
“I think the president-elect is going to see fairly quickly that the demands and responsibilities of a U.S. president are not ones that you can treat casually,” Obama said.
Then a warning shot: “If you’re not serious about the job, then you probably won’t be there very long, because it will expose problems.”
Where to even start? This is a guy who has hit the links 324 times and held over 500 fundraisers during his time in office. All the appearances on late night and daytime talk shows. He appeared on Between Two Ferns and with a girl who takes baths in milk for Youtube broadcasts. He’s all into those selfies, especially when discussing historic events. All the parties with celebrities. Picking his March Madness brackets Oh, and here’s my favorite

As far as governing, Obama uses his pen far more than attempting to talk to the duly elected legislative branch.
Gaining the trust of those who don’t support him? How’s that worked out for Obama? He’s manage to lose more House seats than anyone else. He put the GOP back in the majority in the Senate. Then there are all the wins by Republicans in the state, county, and local offices.
And let’s not forget how he has supported the Black Lives Matter thugs, who’ve loved rioting, looting, burning, and general mayhem.
The rest of the article doesn’t get much better, so, the only question left to ask is “What’s the over/under on Obama playing golf Saturday?”
