President Obama says he wasnt all that surprised by Donald Trumps upset victory in the presidential election.
So I think the odds of Donald Trump winning were always around 20 percent, Obama said in a Rolling Stone interview published Tuesday. That [doesn't] seem like a lot, but one out of five is not that unusual. It's not a miracle."
Obama spoke to the magazines publisher, Jann Wenner, the day after Election Day, when the level of shock at the White House seemed very high.
Dozens of stunned staffers, many of whom had tears in their eyes, stood in the Rose Garden to watch the president address the election results.
Obamas assessment of Trumps odds differs from his declaration in February that the real estate mogul will not be president.
But as the race wore on, Obama warned voters Trump had a real shot at winning.
Now, this should not be a close race, but its going to be a close race, he said at a rally in Charlotte, N.C., four days before Election Day.
Even though Obama said he was disappointed by the possibility Trump could roll back his core accomplishments, he told Wenner he wasnt dismayed by the outcome because his administration has shaped a generation to think about being inclusive, being fair, caring about the environment.
And they will have growing influence year by year, which means that America over time will continue to get better.
Looks to me like trump had a 100% chance of winning, while Obama has a 100% chance of being the worst President in history.
Obama seriously thinks anybody cares about his opinion?
0bama and many of the top dems are thoroughly stunned that their efforts to have illegals and deceased vote by the hundreds of thousands were not enough.
[his administration has shaped a generation to think about being inclusive, being fair, caring about the environment.
And they will have growing influence year by year, which means that America over time will continue to get better.]
OBAMA’S administration begat the TRUMP MOVEMENT & THE DEPLORABLE GENERATION.
Stompy foot is butthurt ...
Odorka is gonna be fun to listen to when he won’t even be able to talk to forrest gump on a park bench.
It’s a miracle.
But for God, it wouldn’t have happened.
God is going to bat for America. More to come.
It’s never wise to bet against a guy who owns casinos.
Denial is not just a river in Egypt. Where are all those muddle-headed followers he is counting on for the Socialist future? They didn’t even show up to vote. The more states that promote marijuana sales, the fewer voters the Left can rely on.
Snowflake staffers crying...
Pulled that right out of........
Obama definitely greased the skids for Trump’s Presidential win.
I value the opinion of what was briefly in my toilet this morning more than I value the opinion of this useless piece of muzzie Mitt.
This from the political oracle who said that Trump had no chance of winning prior to the election. Go back to Chicago, Barry, and leave us alone. We don’t care what you think anymore.
Back last Aug, Vegas had it 200:1 against.
I nearly took the bet
“Obama said in a Rolling Stone interview published Tuesday. “
Fake ass president, talking to a fake news publication.
More childish and nihilistic rantings from the IA!
“his administration has shaped a generation to think about being inclusive, being fair, caring about the environment.
Pure “Progressive” ideology about “manufacturing consent”.
They control the schools, teachers unions, universities and establishment media.
They do not control reality.
They do not control God.
