President Barack Obama has a ‘serious job,’ one that he thinks Donald Trump can’t handle. There are SO many reasons why Obama would say that, but this one makes the biggest joke out of the incredibly questionable candidate.
President Barack Obama, 54, is laying down the law when it comes to the requirements for the next president — and it doesn’t include hosting The Apprentice. Obama told Jimmy Fallon, 41, during a Tonight Show segment taped on June 8 that his main role in this election is to remind the American people that the job of president is a serious one, while dissing Donald Trump, 69.
“This is not reality TV,” Obama said (a clear dig at the Republican presidential candidate). Preach, prez! “I’ve seen the decisions that have to be made and the work that has to be done and I have a lot of confidence that if the American people are reminded of what’s at stake and all the incredibly important issues that we gotta get right that they’re going to make a good choice,” Obama told Fallon. “That’s what they usually do.”
But Obama may have a little too much faith in voters, as no matter what comes out of Donald’s mouth, he still has supporters, and pretty big ones at that. On June 7, the Republican Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, 46, announced he was still going to vote for Donald after the candidate slammed a judge for being “Mexican.”
When Jimmy questioned whether The Donald had contacted Obama (who admitted to not having seen Celebrity Apprentice) for some campaign advice, the commander-in-chief responded, “Not that I know of,” while cracking a smile.
Of course, the matter of Obama’s recent endorsement of Hillary Clinton, 68, the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party (and the first woman to gain that status for a major American political party!), came up. Obama was cautious when Jimmy asked if her opponent, Bernie Sanders, 74, was also going to endorse Hillary. “I’m sure they’re going to have a conversation,” Obama said. And does Obama think Republicans are happy with their candidate? “We are,” Obama said, speaking for all the Dems out there.
So HollywoodLifers, do you think a reality TV star could EVER tackle the role of president?
