Obama Unloads on Trump at Fundraiser: ‘We Don’t Have Time for Charlatans’ and Bigotry

President Obama went on a tear against Donald Trump last night, expressing his frustrations with the GOP candidate dividing the country, “looking for scapegoats [and] ignoring the evidence.”

The president preached a message of unity and told people not to get cynical, especially at the voting booth. (The fact that Great Britain voted to leave the EU despite him coming out against that may have left him feeling a little sour.)

Obama said it’s important for all Americans to “assume the best in each other and not the worst,” and then said this:

“We don’t have time for charlatans and we don’t have time for hatred and we don’t have time for bigotry and we don’t have time for film-flam and we don’t have the luxury of just popping off and saying just whatever comes to the top of our heads. Don’t have time for that.”
