Obama is not showing Trump the same courtesy he was afforded by George W. Bush. Obama couldn’t even last two years before shooting his mouth off. He is actively campaigning against Trump for the 2018 midterms but it may not be having the effect he’s hoping for.

Obama re-emerges to remind voters why they elected Trump
Just in time to remind America why voters elected Donald Trump president two years ago, ex-President Barack Obama emerged from political exile last week.
Pompous, insufferable, self-enthralled, cliched and uninspiring, he picked up right where he left off.
Reliving his eight-year campaign that cost over 1,000 Democrat politicians their seats, Mr. Obama put on his psychiatrist cap and declared our current politics mentally unwell.
This November, he lectured, is “a chance to restore some sanity in our politics.”
And his history professor cap. The “arc of American history” blah blah blah blah. The whole class was fast asleep before he got to his point. Including President Trump.
He even donned his old commander-in-chief cap and tried some military talk.
“We’re going to put on our marching shoes,” Mr. Obama said. The crowd just stared up and blinked in confusion.
In some ways, Obama is the gift that keeps on giving. His presence on the national stage will motivate Republican voters.
