Trump Reportedly Upset That He Isn't As Respected as Barack Obama, According to GOP Pundit

I do think Trump knows how much Obama is respected and is just plain jealous of that respect.
But Trump has shown us that he will only get more cruel and ugly as time passes.

Trump Reportedly Upset That He Isn’t As Respected as Barack Obama, According to GOP Pundit


https://www.politicalflare.com/2020/05/trump-reportedly-upset-that-he-isnt-as-respected-as-barack-obama-according-to-gop-pundit/

By Jason Miciak May 17, 2020



Literally everyone who isn’t part of Trump’s cult can see that Obama lives rent-free in the space of Donald Trump’s head where a brain might otherwise be. President Obama couldn’t even deliver a short and vague high school commencement address – one that didn’t mention Trump or anyone specifically – without Trump firing off all kinds of over-the-top criticism, and this comes at the end of a week where Trump has been tweeting “OBAMAGATE!” and calling for Obama to be imprisoned. We won’t even get into the fact that Trump got his start in politics by famously demanding to see Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate and alleging Obama was “Kenyan.”

Trump’s obvious inferiority complex and insane jealousy have people talking about what it is about Obama that drives Trump to such lengths.

............................

................

But I don’t think that’s the biggest thing. I think Mathew Miller – former Justice Department spokesperson – hit the biggest thing:


“There’s some racism there but, most of all, it’s driven by the fact that Obama has the thing that Trump has always craved but never achieved, and that’s respect. I’ve always thought that the respect that Barack Obama gets from people in this country and around the world is something that just eats Trump alive inside.”

50. In defense of ..............Wile E. Coyote............

..His stupidity incompetence is just for laughs.. I met Wiley's creater/animator once..Chuck Jones..

...Wiley E. has a clue...but his obsession overtakes him over and over and over..
...also...Wiley comes up with some terrific plans to deal with Road Runner, & he tries them, but they always fail...he has fallen off of many cliffs. (& has got tens of millions of laughs)

....Trump is stupider because the whole deal of being the President..is not for laughs...
...Wiley is meant to be humorous....Trump is stupid and comes up with no plans..at least Wiley tries.
....Laughing at Trump because he totally selfish and ignorant......
....Wile is not ignorant, he comes up with great plans,,but they always fail..but most important, Wile comes back and tries again and again and again..

...Donald Trump doesn't give a damn enough to even try

57. The toons are named "Roadrunner"...They are all about Wiley and his obsession, creative and

persistent behavior. It isn't the roadrunner who is funny, it is poor Wiley..and that is why they made those toons that way. If you look them up, you will find that only 25 to 30 toons were made with Roadrunner &Wiley and those 25 have created an incredible following. (The original ones made in the 50s and early 60s)
...Now, I first saw them in the theaters on large screens. There was a theater near me, that had 25 cartoons for 25cents.. About 3 hours straight of toons. Most of the toons were Warner Bros toons because the theater had very close association or were owned by them...

...Yes...it was the mid and late 50s...and guess what?...it is no surprise...
......I always rooted for Wiley to catch the stupid dick of a Roadrunner..always..in the 50s on a large screen,,

...Chuck Jones made them and directed them..I met him once, and he said he made them very simple and easy to understand for one reason...They were very easy to make..He did this so he could make other very expensive toons way beyond budget..That is what he said. You would have to study cartoons, like I have to understand the ease at which those Roadrunner toons were made, as compared to others that Warner
Bros made..

...OK one last tidbit of information..Why did I study this?...One reason only..Those toons made me laugh and made me happy. That is it.!!! (oh, they still do)..Poor Wiley...He is my hero, he doesn't give up..

If Obama were to buy an NFL franchise.

That club of owners wouldn’t have Trumpy. At ALL.

But I bet if Obama had the money and the desire to actually buy a team, they would have no problem at all letting him in that little club.

13. I find this theory to be a bit suspect ...

Primarily because I am not at all convinced that Trump would ever admit to himself that Obama is much more widely respected than he is.

Frankly I'm not sure his narcissistic man-child brain is even capable of processing a thought like that, let alone eventually reaching the inevitably correct conclusion about it's factual nature.

15. Gee...

It's simple:

Respect is earned. If you command or force people to give it to you, that's being a bully who confuses respect with fear.

Trump has not earned any respect from Americans who truly understand that and now, he is making worse for himself by ignoring that. A bully with a big mouth and obsession with himself, well, what's to respect there? Just having a title does not do the trick, that's just being a titular head and it is rather empty and meaningless without the corresponding behaviors and actions.

What, did he really believe that hanging a sign would make him seem reputable or confer the honors on him he does not at all deserve. Infamy is the legacy he is forging as he takes each desperate step down into the pit of perfidy. He will go down as the best of something ever, but it won't be related to his projections and boisterous facade.

If he had kept vital people in their assigned roles, we could have avoided a lot of the needless deaths. Respect? Not likely. Scorn and disgust is what he has earned.

of the US! I wouldn't be surprised if that was one of the reasons he ran for the office. He was SOOO convinced people were going to love him so much more than that (N). After 3 1/2 years he sees the majority of the people are against him and he can't imagine why? He's pointed out all the problems he had because of that guy's failures, and people just don't see it. I'm sure he says to himself WHY? WHY? Why did so many people think that stupid commencement speech was good? It was just for high school kids!

He will never understand why people don't like him. Narcists never do.

WAIT until Biden beats his sorry butt in November.

My biggest fear is what disasters will he create between November & the January nomination?

He blames it on everyone being “jealous of his success”.

His “success”?

Apparently it is being a contractor that consistently nets 1 and 2 star reviews on Yelp and spends as much time in the courtroom as he does at the job site.

It’s not just that Obama is very well respected. It’s because Obama is held in very high regard AND is a black man. It’s the combination that kills him. There are many other well respected presidents, some still alive but this is what gets Trumps goat. So racism And entitlement is very much the basis.

51. President Obama also has something money can't buy -- class.

Watch some of the YouTube videos of the President dropping by neighborhood restaurants and greeting all the guests and every member of the staff. He asks each one their name and asks a question, "Where are you from?" "How long are you in town?" He saw a wedding party as he finished the 18th hole and walked over to congratulate the bride and groom, and talk to them. Once he got a letter from a teacher who lived in a town he was going to visit and made arrangements to drive to her house and visit with her and some friends for a half hour to discuss their concerns about education. He wrote a note to the teachers of a first grader: "Please excuse Bobby's absence. He was with me. -- Barack Obama"

And then there is this photo:

And a ride he gave to a woman who was speaking at an event where he was featured:



Like I said, you can't buy class.
