Obama Unloads On Trump In New Book: “Corrupt motherf*cker, racist, sexist pig, that f*cking lunatic”

Sharing is caring!

Barack Obama unloaded on former President Donald Trump behind the scenes throughout the 2020 campaign according to the new book ‘Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaigns to Defeat Donald Trump’ by Edward-Isaac Dovere. 

The book is making headlines for disclosing that Jill Biden told supporters that now Vice-President Kamala Harris should “go f*ck herself” after she beat up Biden at a debate by attacking his record on race.

Now the author has Obama cursing out Trump in calls to donors and advisers. According to the book, Obama called Trump a “madman”, a “racist, sexist pig”, “that f*cking lunatic” and a “corrupt motherf*cker”.

The book is out next week but the Guardian got an advance copy. From The Guardian:

Dovere reports that Obama first preferred the prospect of Trump as president to Ted Cruz, because Trump was nowhere near as clever as the hard-right Texas senator, the runner-up in the Republican primary in 2016.

But from 2017, as reality swiftly set in, Obama reacted like many in the US and around the world.

“He’s a madman,” Dovere reports Obama telling “big donors looking to squeeze a reaction out of him in exchange for the big checks they were writing to his foundation”.

“More often: ‘I didn’t think it would be this bad.’ Sometimes: ‘I didn’t think we’d have a racist, sexist pig.’ Depending on the outrage of the day … a passing ‘that fucking lunatic’ with a shake of his head.”

Obama’s strongest remark, Dovere reports, was prompted by reports that Trump was speaking to foreign leaders – including Vladimir Putin, amid the investigation of Russian election interference and links between Trump and Moscow – without any aides on the call.

“‘That corrupt motherfucker,’ he remarked.”

Like Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency, by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, Dovere also reports extensively on a relationship between Obama and Biden that was not as smooth as might have been thought given their eight years in power together.
