Split Screen Presidents: Barack Obama Comes Out Swinging As Donald Trump Digs In | Deadline | MSNBC



rubmeinc · September 8, 2018 at 5:55 pm

Obama lies and he twists things around the truth to suit his own agenda. President Trump is doing the RIGHT thing and Session should do the right thing without having the president to tell him his job. And YOU the Fake news follow the corrupt Obama like blind fools. You should be ashamed of your actions on the American public.

Barak, you are using words donald doesn't understand.

Jenny Orez · September 8, 2018 at 6:01 pm

Words don't change the nation, it's in doing what brings change and make the nation great. Obama is just talk no action. Anyone can say great things but it's President Trump who is saving the Great USA. GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP.

Joseph Stine · September 8, 2018 at 6:01 pm

Byronsito 504 · September 8, 2018 at 6:01 pm

I miss this guy… I miss intelligent and coherent speeches…

free man · September 8, 2018 at 6:02 pm

Mr.Obama, Chinese illegally detained over 1 Million Uyghur in East Turkistanand torturing them in concentration camp as you speak, where is democratic party or you on this issue ? Hundres and thousdands of helpless Uyghur orphans are crying for their parents, only fancy speach won't be enough !

John Currie · September 8, 2018 at 6:05 pm

Obama is a racist. Coward. Homosexual. Hater. Deceitful.

subliminal · September 8, 2018 at 6:05 pm

Trump missed his nappy time too bad he didn't stay awake and watch how a real President talks that's why Obama is respected and Trump isn't except by his cronies who use him. Trump evidentally is falling asleep a lot when people are snatching all kinds of paperwork off his desk he's too unhinged that the threat to our Security is at risk because of him and his unqualified people he brings into the people's WH not counting Russian spies who have made our Allies quit sharing sensitive information w us since they can't trust Trump he runs his mouth when he brags up to letting people take pictures at Margo Largo w the secret (unsecreat now thanks to trump)agent who hold the brief case w the red button for Nuclear War. THIS person Don the Con is pitiful so refreshing to liste(n to an intelligent President. VOTE this made for Tv jerk out carry him OUT to the waiting ambulance where a rubber waits for him. SO SAD his own people have to watch his every move . You want to know why he golfs so much well he knows his staff encourages him go go go and he knows they want him out of their hair.
Also when is the Media going to out him and the woman or is it women he is borking he says everyone knows but they won't say nothing WHY NOT. IS THE PRESS AFRAID TOO?

D Wood · September 8, 2018 at 6:06 pm

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patios and tyrants!

Joseph Stine · September 8, 2018 at 6:06 pm

I detect a laugh track for trump rallies

Travis Smith · September 8, 2018 at 6:07 pm

Trump is trying to take Credit for USA economy. President Barack Obama builded USA economy up
Shame, Shame on Trump

DADDYO3D · September 8, 2018 at 6:08 pm

O bummer is not president anymore ! He needs to sit down and shut up !!!!🤐 obummer done his time already as president and done nothing good for the American People !! Now he’s out and just needs to GO AWAY !!!

Traveling Guy · September 8, 2018 at 6:08 pm

Obama’s speeches are getting better. He doesn’t stutter that much anymore. Think more like Trump Obama to keep making America great again. You had your chance Obama for 8 years but you blew it. Trump’s a real leader.

jack daw · September 8, 2018 at 6:11 pm

I am a white Brit and would've voted for Obama in a heartbeat. Your current POTUS said he saw no problem with him having more than two terms. When for me personally, his predecessor deserved more than two terms and yet stood down gracefully. The US is supposed to be a "classless society" I don't believe Donald Trump embodies the sort classless that the foundling fathers were thinking off. Good Luck America and just remember you can reset your experiment, whereas we in the UK are stuck with Brexit no matter what happens!

aiqiasbsz qoaijjzj · September 8, 2018 at 6:11 pm

The 2016 election was the worst because Hillary and Trump are the biggest liars in America's history.

ron williams · September 8, 2018 at 6:14 pm

It is about the American peoples not about one man

American 69 · September 8, 2018 at 6:19 pm

Over 60 million Americans voted against Trump
We need an independant middle class president to unite this country before it’s to late.
Someone that still has their American patriotic values and will protect the constitution at all cost.
Over 60 million voters already against Trump in 2020
$2 per voter donation to a campaign fund would fund a campaign with more money than Trump spent last election
We need a real American to lead for the American people. Not just some of the people
One that is content on the presidents salary and committed to the people of this country.
Share this everywhere if you care

The person did what all of us have the right to do under OUR Constitution and it's not illegal!!! However, they went about it the wrong way!

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

William Westerband Jr. · September 8, 2018 at 6:21 pm

Here is the difference between a classy intelligent man (Obama) and the most embarrassing clown society can conjure (Trump) Trump, next to hitler is the most despicable human being that ever existed. Simply the worst.

Mary7 · September 8, 2018 at 6:22 pm

You know that he didn't fall asleep he sat there fuming he is still jealous of President Obama for speaking the truth!

Monique Geritz · September 8, 2018 at 6:24 pm
