    Trump will not be president because it's a 'serious job,' Obama says

    Not too surprising considering some very harsh tweets Trumspter has tweeted about dronegangsta in the past:

    Trump will not be president because it's a 'serious job,' Obama says

    Gregory Korte, USA TODAY 8:18 p.m. EST February 16, 2016
    President Obama explains why he believes that Donald Trump will never become president. VPC

    Republican primary voters are venting their frustration by supporting Donald Trump, President Obama said Tuesday. But Obama said he has confidence that the American people won't ultimately trust the billionaire reality show star with the nuclear launch codes.
    "I continue to believe Mr. Trump will not be president, and the reason is because I have a lot of faith in the American people. And I think they recognize that being president is a serious job. It's not hosting a talk show or a reality show. It's not promotion. It's not marketing. It's hard," Obama said at a news conference in California Tuesday.
    Obama has been critical of Trump before — especially on his anti-Muslim rhetoric. But after hosting a summit of leaders from 10 Southeast Asian countries on Tuesday, Obama gave a more specific critique of Trump's foreign policy credentials.


    "Whoever is standing where I'm standing now has the nuclear codes with them, and can order 21-year-olds into a firefight, and has to make sure that the banking system doesn't collapse," he said. "The American people are pretty sensible, and I think they'll make a sensible choice in the end."

    Obama acknowledged that Trump has had some appeal in early primary states, but predicted that he would fade as the general election gets nearer.

    "Yeah, during primaries people vent, and they express themselves, and it seems like entertainment, and oftentimes it's reported just like entertainment. But as you get closer, reality has a way of intruding," he said.

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Trump addressed this a few months back. He basically alluded to the fact that the economy is rigged to blow, if a distinctly different type of administration secures the presidency.

    Ah ok, so as long as Trump wins it'll be fine. That's good.

    Hey Barack, you know how I know that the office of the presidency ceased to be a serious job? Because you've held it at all, let alone for 2 terms.

    “I don’t think that there will be any curtailing of Donald Trump as president,” he said. "He controls the media, he controls the sentiment [and] he controls everybody. He’s the one who will resort to executive orders more so than [President] Obama ever used them." - Ron Paul

    Well, if a "community organizer" can handle it, how serious and tough can it be?

    This is all pretty funny in retrospect. Even bigger LOL if Obama's roast was one of the decisive factors that caused Trump to run in the first place.

    To be fair, integrity of the elections is being questioned now.

    Obama questions the integrity of elections


    We can't blame DGP for making wrong predictions if Russia rigged our elections.
