Trump Swipes at Obama Speech: ‘I Fell Asleep’

On Friday, President Donald Trump spoke at a campaign event in North Dakota.

During his remarks, he took a swipe at former President Barack Obama who earlier today railed against Trump and the Republicans while stumping in Illinois.

After remarking that he had been asked about Obama’s scathing rebuke, Trump suggested Obama’s words were good for one thing: sleeping.

“I’m sorry, I watched it, but I fell asleep,” Trump said. “I found he’s very good. Very good for sleeping.”

Trump then suggested Obama was trying to “take credit for this incredible thing happening to our country…We were heading south, you look at those bad numbers that there in the last couple of years, it was this way and going in the wrong direction.”

Then, a bit later in the speech, Trump returned to the theme, noting his speech was much more exciting than listening to Obama.

During Obama’s speech that Trump found sleep-inducing, the former president had suggested that “powerful and privileged” people want to “keep us angry because it helps them keep their power and their privilege.”

Obama added in his remarks to Democrats: “It did not start with Donald Trump. He is a symptom, not the cause. He’s just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years.”
