Barack Obama on Trump: ‘He’s Nothing But A Bullsh-ter’

Former President Barack Obama and wife Michelle Obama made the May cover of PEOPLE. The couple shared with close friends what life is now like post the Obama presidency and how they feel about Donald Trump.

“He’s nothing but a bullsh–ter,” Obama told two friends early last November, describing an election night phone call with Trump. Trump apparently went on to tell Obama how much he resected and admired the leader. Really?

And how has Obama’s opinion changed since Trump been in office? “Well,” said one of the friends, “it hasn’t gotten any better.”

A third close friend said about Barack Obama that  “He’s deeply concerned with what he’s seen. But he’s also optimistic and heartened that citizens aren’t just watching it happen but engaging with neighbors and elected representatives at town halls.”

Obama’s long-time friend and political strategist David Axelrod said the former president is very respectful of the new commander and refrains from bashing him, just as George Bush refrained from publicly criticizing Obama.

“Obviously, this now is a unique set of circumstances, but my sense is that he’s going to try and respect that tradition while reserving the right to speak out in given moments when things rise to that level.”

As for former First Lady Michelle Obama, she joked “I’m going all black for the next couple of years.”
