Donald Trump accused Joe Biden of being disrespectful to Obama
On Friday, Donald Trump took to Twitter and called out Joe Biden for disrespecting former president Barack Obama.
“Joe Biden was very disrespectful to President Obama at last night’s debate when he said that he, Joe, ‘was Vice President, not President,’ when trying to make excuses for their failed immigration policies. I wonder what “O” was thinking when he heard that one?” Trump tweeted.
However, many reacted and slammed Trump because, for them, he was also disrespectful to Obama when the latter was in the Oval Office.
One netizen said Trump has been disrespectful to Obama in the last five years. The same online user said he wondered what Obama felt when Trump accused him of not being a US citizen and threatened to lock him up for fake crimes.
Another netizen called out Trump for allegedly disrespecting everyone all the way to the citizens. Meanwhile, another questioned Trump for complaining about someone being disrespectful when he himself was disgraceful.
However, some netizens supported Trump because they knew where he was coming from. One user agreed with the POTUS and said Biden threw Obama under the bus with his statement. The same netizen felt that Obama and Biden oversaw what the latter said.
“Biden threw Obama under the bus and basically said Obama failed. Joe takes no responsibility for “cages” built and put into action on their watch,” Robby Starbuck wrote supporting Trump.

Obama is campaigning for us. Every time he speaks, people come over to our side. He didn’t even want to endorse Sleepy Joe. Did so long after primaries were over!

Trump claimed Barack Obama endorse him
Barack Obama had officially endorsed Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate for the presidency. But despite that, Donald Trump claimed the ex-POTUS was campaigning for him.
“Obama is campaigning for us. Every time he speaks, people come over to our side. He didn’t even want to endorse Sleepy Joe. Did so long after primaries were over!” Donald Trump tweeted.
Many slammed the POTUS for his tweet because they knew Barack Obama would never endorse him. One netizen even commented on Trump’s tweet, calling it “desperation.” Meanwhile, another accused Trump of being jealous of Obama.
The netizen said Trump was pathetic and would never be like Obama because the latter is respected and admired worldwide while Trump is a “small, petty twerp in his shadow.”
