(Tea Party PAC) – Welp, Obama has done it again. The former president has managed to take another White House tradition, ball it up and toss it into the garbage. When it comes to Barack Hussein Obama, there seems to be nothing that is sacred, especially when it comes to the country he calls home.
President Obama was invited to attend the unveiling of his White House portrait, but he’s not attending. Any guesses as to why? It’s something really, really petty. Basically it’s related to the increasing tension between Obama and President Trump, which has reached a fever pitch this week.
Over the weekend, Obama insulted President Trump and his handling of the coronavirus crisis. Trump, not one to back down from an attack, launched into a rather brutal rebuttal of Obama’s presidency, calling him the “worst president in American history.”
Truth hurts, doesn’t it?
Here’s more from BizPacReview:
For decades, succeeding presidents would host a ceremony for the unveiling of their predecessors’ official White House portrait.
Obama hosted a ceremony for former President George W. Bush.
Bush once held a ceremony for former President Bill Clinton. And Clinton once held a ceremony for former President George H.W. Bush.
Seriously? Obama’s going to allow himself to be outclassed by someone as wretched as a sexual abuser like Bill Clinton? That’s sad on so many levels. It blows the mind.
The tradition reportedly dates back to 1978, when then-President Jimmy Carter unveiled former President Gerald Ford’s portrait. Yet as of 2020, this tradition is now reportedly dead.
“Obama will forgo the unveiling of his presidential portrait in the White House as President Donald Trump ramps up attacks on his record,” U.S. News & World Report reported Tuesday.
“It is a long-held White House tradition that a first-term president hosts a ceremony to unveil the official portrait of his immediate predecessor that will hang in the building. However, people familiar with the matter [said] that Obama will skip the unveiling of his portrait.”
The evidence suggests the Trump administration has for its part at least tried to be congenial with Obama about the matter.
“An administration official said there have been some discussions between the White House and Obama’s team to hang the portrait but no date was ever officially scheduled,” CNN confirmed.
NBC News has noted that former President Obama has no interest in being a nice guy and wants to wait until Trump is out of office before having his portrait go up in the White House. Good grief. That’s some high school drama crap right there. We knew all along that Obama was a child who throws temper tantrums when he doesn’t get his way, but this is just ridiculous.
As you can probably already imagine, the left is loving Obama for his decision. Many individuals in the left-wing media have tried justifying his disrespectful response by talking about how Trump has attacked Obama’s record. No mention of the all the times Obama has attacked Trump, including the new evidence of the former administration’s illegal spying on him.
Documentation from the FBI proves that Obama’s people not only spied on Trump, but abused political power and authority to try and destroy Michael Flynn as a means of launching an assault on Trump that would obliterate his administration. These people are truly horrid.
Maybe one day Obama will grow up and act like a big kid. Today, apparently, is not that day.
