Today in a joint press conference with Prime Minister Lee of Singapore, the President of the United States declared the Republican nominee for President "unfit to be president" Fundamental change accomplished, Barack Obama. It is one thing for a sitting president to declare his support for the candidate running in his own party, it is quite another thing to declare the opposition party's candidate as unfit as the world watches.
I challenge anyone to show me an example from another sitting president behaving in this way. It is stomach-turning enough for a sitting president to be so one-sided in his governance that he truly thinks he is making some kind of magnanimous gesture to state he is willing to sit down with people from both sides of an issue - in this case, TPP - but it is quite another to ratchet up the trash talk about one party's nominee for the highest office in the land. The next leader of the free world, no matter the election outcome, deserves better in a civilized society. I am trying to imagine the outrage from the American press if George W. Bush had made such a statement of Barack Obama in 2007.
A reminder: the President of the United States governs all Americans, not just those in his/her own party. Obama has been the most divisive president this country has seen. A man given the opportunity to unite and inspire the country - as he promised in 2008 - has totally wasted that possibility.
Obama also demanded that Republicans in leadership positions renounce previous endorsements of Trump. His arrogance knows no boundaries.
