Michelle and Barack Obama took a few childish swipes at President Trump during the former First Lady’s debut podcast on Spotify.
The premiere episode was reportedly designed to be America’s “nationwide reckoning with race” and aims to “show us what’s possible when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, to open up, and to focus on what matters most.”
Apparently what ‘matters most’ is taking shots at your successor while never actually having the courage to name them outright.
The Huffington Post reports that Barack at one point discussed how young people’s interest in government is generally limited to when something goes wrong.
“We’re getting a good lesson in that right now,” he derided.
Perhaps he was referring to the Do Nothing Democrats and their impeachment scams, but we suspect this was directed at Trump.
The First Lady.
The first guest.
The first episode.

Suggests Trump Is Ignorant
In another not-so-subtle jab at the President, the pair discussed turning out voters in the next election.
Barack considers himself an optimist, trumpeting “I’m the ‘Yes, We Can!’ man. I am the ‘audacity of hope’ guy.”
“I think where we disagree is usually you [Michelle] just think things just have to get super, super bad before folks figure stuff out,” the former President lamented.
Mrs. Obama replied, “Well, I hope we’re at that point.”
She continued, “Well, as you pointed out as a former president who reads and knows history – Let’s just take moment to pause and think about that – But as that person, you understand the arc of progress.”
A pretty clear shot at President Trump, inferring he is ignorant. Bitterness, party of two.
So excited for you to hear the first episode of The #MichelleObamaPodcast with @BarackObama! I wanted to start this season off by discussing our relationship with our community and our country. I hope you’ll tune in on @Spotify: https://t.co/iEjVDPIxEs. pic.twitter.com/9svSKNHRZ0

What else would you expect from a pair of classless narcissists who have constantly taken shots at the President since they left the White House?
Two years ago, Mr. Obama strongly suggested that the world has ongoing problems because Trump is an angry racist with “mommy issues.”
The former President even took a shot at his successor by comparing this administration to 1930s Germany.

And speaking of audacity, Obama had the gall to suggest he and Democrat Joe Biden always took responsibility for their mistakes when they were in the White House.
“Can you imagine standing up when you were president and saying ‘it’s not my responsibility. I take no responsibility.’ Literally. Literally,” Biden asked his former boss.
“Those words didn’t come out of our mouths when we were in office,” replied Obama.
