Obama: Trump treats the presidency like ‘one more reality show’

Echoing his wife’s words on Monday, Barack Obama offered a searing indictment of Trump’s presidency in a time of unprecedented crisis.

The former president said his successor has shown “no interest in treating the presidency as anything but one more reality show that he can use to get the attention he craves.”

Reflecting on the 170,000 American lives already lost to coronavirus, Obama said, “Donald Trump hasn’t grown into the job because he can’t. And the consequences of that failure are severe.”
