Now that Former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are out of the White House, we have seen them living their best lives ever, from yacht trips with some of the biggest celebrities, to power lunches in New York City.

People Magazine caught up with sources close to Barack Obama and revealed that the Former President really thinks about 45.
“He’s nothing but a bullsh*ter,” Obama told two close friends early last November, describing an election night phone call from the Orange One. In the call, Trump voiced his admiration and respect for Obama, though he’s spent so many years publicly doubting and damning our former world leader.

Obama’s long time friend, political strategist, David Axelrod and current director of the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics, explains Barack Obama’s silence on 45: “He’s very respectful of the appropriate role of a former president and that ex-presidents should not be looking over the shoulder of their successors and commenting on every decision.”
Well, we’re sure it’s not long till Donald Trump fires up his Twitter fingers and responds.
