If you’re the president of the United States of America and a global pandemic is wrecking havoc on your country, you’d think that that would be the first priority. But if you’re Trump – who is an idiot I must add – then you ignore COVID-19 altogether and instead be a petty little toddler about not putting Obama’s portrait in the White House.
Speaking of Obama, the GOAT team gush about Michelle Obama on ‘It’s Been A Big Day For…’ below:
A long-standing White House tradition has been for a first-term president to host a ceremony for the unveiling of the official portrait of their immediate predecessor, which will hang on the walls of the White House forever, irrespective of personal feelings or political views.
But according to NBC News, Trump is breaking yet another tradition by not bothering to host a ceremony for Obama’s official portrait. Instead, Trump is opting attack the beloved former president like a petty little POS by making up lies about Obama being a criminal and spreading some ridiculous “Obamagate” nonsense that has no basis in fact or reality.
Did I mention Trump is an idiot?
As for why Trump is so focused on his “Obamagate” lies and not giving Obama his official portrait ceremony, it’s another display of gaslighting and distraction from Combover Caligula.
Trump is doing an unprecedentedly piss-poor job in managing the COVID-19 pandemic. In just a few short weeks, America has the most number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, as well as the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 related deaths of any country. With criticism mounting every day, this ‘Obamagate’ rubbish and petty Obama portrait stuff is the Cheeto-in-Chief is doing what he does best: ignore the problem, make crap up, and blame someone else.
As for what Obama makes of this, well he reportedly could really care less about his ceremony so long as Trump is still the Cheeto-in-Chief. The much-loved former president is seemingly more focused on getting people to vote in the 2020 election so that we would be rid of the orange cancer that’s currently sitting in the White House and rage-tweeting every day.
One really can’t help but feel some pity for America right now because not only are many people dying from COVID-19, Trump would rather focus on his petty (and clearly racist) agenda against Obama instead of, you know, focusing on relief efforts for the pandemic that’s sweeping the country.
