Former President Barack Obama went after President Trump for leaving his cell phone in his “golf cart,” a play on Trump’s penchant for golfing.
What’s odd is that Obama golfed more than anyone during his two terms.
If this isn’t a ridiculous reason to attack Trump, especially considering Trump said he hardly ever uses a cell phone, than what is?
From Daily Wire:
Former President Barack Obama has been mostly invisible in the weeks leading up to Nov. 6th’s mid-term elections. Few of the high-profile Democrats facing tight races have called him in for support, leaving the former leader of the party stumping in high school gymnasiums in places like Wisconsin and Michigan — two states Hillary Clinton lost in 2016.
And Obama, whose “legacy” is being systematically dismantled by President Trump, has turned to ad hominem attacks to try to take on his successor.
Obama cited Hillary’s secret home brew email server to accuse Republicans of trying to “scare the heck out of people before every election.” And he also mocked Trump about a recent New York Times story that Russia and China listen in on Trump’s cell phone calls.
Obama: “In the last election, it was Hillary’s emails. ‘This is terrible’ … ‘This is a national security crisis.”
He added: “They didn’t care about emails and you know how you know? Because if they did, they’d be up in arms right now that the Chinese are listening to the president’s iPhone that he leaves in his golf cart.”
Trump blasted the New York Times for reporting a “fake news” story.
“The New York Times has a new Fake Story that now the Russians and Chinese (glad they finally added China) are listening to all of my calls on cellphones. Except that I rarely use a cellphone, & when I do it’s government authorized. I like Hard Lines. Just more made up Fake News!”

As if bashing his successor in America wasn’t enough, Obama decided to head overseas and take a few jabs at President Trump in Oslo, Norway.
