Pot, meet kettle.
At a news conference in Singapore, President Obama took a jab at Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, saying he “is unfit to serve as president.”
Here is the transcript (video below) via Grabien:
BRENNAN: “Thank you, Mr. President. Given the Republican nominee’s recent comments about the Khan family and his statement that if president, he would consider recognizing Russia’s annexation of Crimea, does it make you question his fitness to be president? Secondly, sir, on Libya, you’ve said in the past that the worst mistake of your presidency may have been your failure to plan for the aftermath of that 2011 NATO intervention in Libya. Do you see your new decision to bomb ISIS there as a direct result of that?”
OBAMA: “Yes. I think the Republican nominee is unfit to serve as president. I said so last week. And he keeps on proving it. The notion that he would attack a gold star family that had made such extraordinary sacrifices on behalf of our country, the fact that he doesn’t appear to have basic knowledge around critical issues in Europe, in the Middle East, in Asia, means that he’s woefully unprepared to do this job. And this is not just my opinion. I think what’s been interesting is the repeated denunciations of his statements by leading Republicans, including the Speaker of the House and the Senate majority leader and prominent Republicans like John McCain.”
