Here’s another thing I can agree with Obama on. He called Willard Mitt Romney a bullshitter. You know, that big ‘shit’ word again? Yet, that didn’t get any media coverage like the so called shithole countries (in which Trump is right about Haiti and others he was referring to.)

Former President Barack Obama reportedly told friends shortly after Election Day he thinks President Trump is a “bullshitter.”
“He’s nothing but a bullshitter,” Obama told two friends in November, according to People.
Obama was reportedly describing an election night phone call with Trump in which the new president talked about his “respect” for Obama. Trump for years questioned Obama’s birthplace and frequently accused him of intentionally working to hurt the U.S., including calling him the “founder” of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
Asked how Obama’s opinion of Trump has changed since he’s been in office, one friend told People: “It hasn’t gotten any better.”
“He’s deeply concerned with what he’s seen,” a third source close to Obama reportedly said. “But he’s also optimistic and heartened that citizens aren’t just watching it happen but engaging with neighbors and elected representatives at town halls.”
Former Obama adviser David Axelrod said Obama is “very respectful of the appropriate role of a former president and that ex-presidents should not be looking over the shoulder of their successors and commenting on every decision.”
