Barack Obama Low Key Shaded TF Outta Donald Trump During His Interview With Prince Harry

Our favorite president and Prince Harry also shared a few laughs over lighter topics.

Published December 28th

Ever since Barack Obama left office earlier this year, he’s been living his life to the fullest, but we haven’t heard much from him via interviews.

  1. Well, now we’re learning a little more about post-presidency life from the 44th president of the United States. It took a very high-profile interviewer to get some info out of him too.

    In September, while in Toronto for the Invictus Games, Barack and buddy Prince Harry sat down for an interview for BBC Radio 4. During the back-and-forth, we noticed that the current president is somewhat on Obama’s mind and he felt it was a good opportunity to low-key shade him without mentioning his name.

  2. "One of the dangers of the internet is that people can have entirely different realities. They can be cocooned in information that reinforces their current biases," he said. "The truth is that on the internet everything is simplified and when you meet people face to face it turns out they are complicated.”

    When asked about passing the baton off to Donald Trump on Inauguration Day, Barack Obama said he found “serenity” and that the experience was a lot less stressful than he previously believed it would be.

    "I think it was a satisfying feeling,” he recalled. “That was mixed with all the work that was still undone. Concerns about how the country moves forward but, you know, overall there was serenity there. More than I would have expected.

    "But wherever you were in the race,” he continued. “If you ran hard, if you did your best, and that you then were able to pass that baton off successfully and the country was better off, the world was a little bit better off, than when you got there, then you could take some pride in that. And I think we were able to do that."

    Also during the conversation, Barack Obama talked about Michelle, traffic he now has to experience, Harry’s royal wedding and more.
