President Obama, who’s got no more elections to run, is just letting it all hang out these days. At a Democratic Party fundraiser on Saturday, the current President (who hopes we never see Trump run the country) took a few moments of his speech to discuss the businessman’s excellent selection of products, including Trump wine and Trump steaks (which are, or were, a real thing at some point).
Here are Obama’s comments, via CBS:
“Has anybody bought that wine? I want to know what that wine tastes like,” a laughing Obama said at a Democratic Party fundraiser Saturday at Gilley’s in Dallas. “I mean, come on. You know that’s like some $5 wine. They slap a label on it. They charge you $50 and say it’s the greatest wine ever.”
Obama didn’t name names that day (although, no one else running for president is selling wine, so it’s not hard to determine who he was cracking jokes at), but at an event a day earlier in Austin, he went in on Trump’s steaks while comparing the businessman’s record to his own:
“Imagine what Trump would say if he actually had a record like this. Instead of selling steaks,” Obama said. “Has anybody tried that wine? How good can that wine be?”
Sounds like the perfect opportunity for Trump to send Obama some of his delicious wine, although to be honest, some of the best wines you’ve ever tasted are cheap and unimpressive. My own favorite, for instance, is the moscato by Castello del Poggio that’s only sold at The Olive Garden (one of America’s finest restaurants) and BevMo!
But harshing Trump’s wine wasn’t really Obama’s main point. Instead, he was trying to harsh Trump’s whole campaign, making it clear that the man should never ever be in a position of power. As to Trump’s assertion that he wants to make America great again? Obama has this to say:
“America is pretty darn great right now,” he said, riffing on Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan. Obama said the focus of the race to succeed him after two terms in office should be on “how we can do even better, build on the progress we’ve made, not reverse it.”
