Trump vs Obama speech:
https://youtu.be/niGjfLZ3nXo

Trump’s true legacy is that he makes us feel dumber

The greatest thing Obama did as President was kill Bin Laden. I'll always be grateful.

8 frickin' years, and he did 1 thing right!

One thing?

What about the recovery act? Dodd-frank? Extending bush tax cuts?

Ok, ok - 1 big thing, and 3 little things!

But don't worry about Barrack - he gets $100M from Netflix, and Biden gets millions for his family - so his legacy is secure!

Those helped the wealthy for sure. Middle class? Ehhh.

Well, Obama did help jump start the CPFB and the fiduciary rule. So those were good things. It's a shame that Trump gutted them though.

What about forcing all federal departments to comply with FOIA requests?
Limiting lobbyist access to the White House and limiting WH employees from working for lobbyists?
Prohibiting contractors who have committed fraud from being awarded government contracts?
Ending no-bid defense contracts?
Banned export of cluster bombs?
35% tariffs on Chinese goods being “dumped”?
Ending Bush’s policy of awarding tax breaks to corporations outsourcing American jobs?
Gained access Swiss tax records of tax evaders and criminals?
Removed Bush policy of having “off budget” government expenditures?

I could go on but at least one of those u must agree with!
I figure 1 big thing and 4 smaller things is an OK job.

And he also made some good jokes during the WH correspondents dinners!

Obama was hilarious at the correspondents dinner - that counts too!

Conan was even better:

In the 2011 dinner Obama who was fed up with Trump's birther attacks, made a number of jokes about Trump. DJT did not take kindly to being the butt of a joke, took offense to the joke and that was what started his hate for Obama.

Wow, such a xenophobe. We're supposed to be proud of this country? So hateful!

Wait...for it. Yep compared to Hitler:

 ::)

Now compare this to Obama:

https://www.politico.com/story/2016/05/obama-administration-title-ix-transgender-student-rights-223149

"The letter includes a threat that the Obama administration has leveled against North Carolina in the standoff over the state's law blocking legal protections for gay and transgender individuals: If a state fails to comply with the administration's interpretation of the law, it runs the risk of being sued by the federal government and losing federal funding, particularly for education."

Hmmm...which one do I want taught to my kids? Such a hard choice!
