President Obama understands the threat Donald Trump represents to his legacy. He has taken Trump seriously for months, unlike many in the media.
From a piece I have running today in LifeZette:
The media, most of whom have never created a business or a job in their entire lives, love to mock Donald Trump. The man who somehow earned billions of dollars and then clawed his way to the GOP nomination is somehow insincere, silly — a clown.
But one man who knows better is taking Trump deadly seriously, and has been for months.
President Obama, held by friends and enemies alike to be the greatest politician of his generation — how else does one parlay an empty resume into the presidency? — knows a political threat when he sees it. And he understands that Donald Trump, despite charges from some on the Right that the New Yorker isn’t conservative enough, will undo much of the Obama legacy and ensure that the man who fancies himself a great historical figure ends up as something on the order of Millard Fillmore.
If Congress stays in Republican hands, Trump will eviscerate Obamacare instead of saving it with the “public option” backed by Hillary Clinton, which would socialize medicine once and for all by having the government provide health insurance directly. With the stroke of a pen, Trump will undo Obama’s executive actions providing amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants . . .
