President Obama predictably joined the pack going after Donald Trump this week, calling him “woefully unprepared” and questioning why Republicans support him.
Obama, who himself was woefully unprepared to assume office, said Trump also “doesn’t have the judgment, the temperament, the understanding” to be president.
I mean let’s think about this. Running a sprawling business empire employing tens of thousands of people and earning billions of dollars for yourself, or being an unremarkable first term senator and an even less remarkable state legislator who often failed to show up to vote.
Who is more qualified?
“If you are repeatedly having to say in very strong terms that what he has said is unacceptable, why are you still endorsing him? Obama said during a White House press conference with the prime minister of Singapore. “What does this say about your party, that this is your standard-bearer? This isn’t a situation where you have an episodic gaffe. This is daily,” he said.
“The notion that he would attack a Gold Star family that had made such extraordinary sacrifices on behalf of our country, the fact that he doesn’t appear to have basic knowledge around critical issues, in Europe, in the Middle East, in Asia, means that he’s woefully unprepared to do this job.”
