Obama gave a speech this week in an effort to boost his party’s chances in the midterms. He also used the speech to attack Trump but Trump was unimpressed. In fact, he said the speech put him to sleep.
The Hill reports:
Trump on Obama speech: ‘I fell asleep’
President Trump on Friday shrugged off a speech made by former President Obama in which he delivered a blistering rebuke of Trump’s leadership.
“I’m sorry. I watched it, but I fell asleep. I found he’s very good — very good for sleeping,” Trump said during a fundraiser in Fargo, N.D.
Trump also hit Obama for claiming credit for a run of strong job growth, which began during the 44th president’s time in office.
“He was trying to take credit for this incredible thing that’s happening to our country,” Trump said, accusing Obama of presiding over the “weakest recovery in the history of our country” since the Great Depression.
During remarks at the University of Illinois, Obama condemned Trump and called on Americans to vote against Republicans in the November midterm elections.
Obama said America is “not normal” under Trump and accused the president of fueling racial divisions while undermining democratic principles.

That is hilarious. And you know Obama won’t appreciate being made fun of like that.
