Did you really think we were going to get through the 2016 State of the Union without hearing from Donald Trump?! To no one’s surprise, the presidential hopeful took to Twitter to bash President Obama for his speech, calling it ‘boring’ and ‘hard to watch.’ Yikes!
Donald Trump, 69, is at it again! The Republican candidate couldn’t keep his mouth shut as President Barack Obama, 54, delivered his final State of the Union address, and he didn’t have the kindest things to say. We know these two have very different political views, but Trump took things to a whole new level this time!
“The #SOTU speech is really boring, slow, lethargic – very hard to watch!” Trump wrote on Twitter. Surprisingly, he kept quiet while the address aired live on Jan. 12, but he, of course, had to get that one dig in! The GOP hopeful is never one to shy away from airing out his honest opinions, and honestly, this could have been MUCH worse…but it was still pretty inappropriate!
One person who seemed to agree with the Trump is House Speaker Paul Ryan. The Republican congressman was seated behind President Obama during the State of the Union, and kept a major poker face on throughout the nearly hour-long speech. Many celebs took notice of his lack of approval, and took to Twitter to scold him for not being supportive over certain topics.
Trump isn’t the only one here who can dish it back and forth, though! Ahead of his big speech, the President took a little dig at his possible successor while discussing the idea that Trump will be the next person to make a State of the Union address, should he get elected. “Well I can imagine it — in a Saturday Night skit,” Obama said in an interview with the Today show. Oooo-burn! “Look, anything’s possible,” he added. “And I think, you know, we shouldn’t be complacent.” Looks like we’ll have to wait and see!
HollywoodLifers, were you at all shocked by Donald’s comments…or have you grown to expect this by now?
