Obama Goes Trolling: If Republicans Can’t Handle CNBC, They Can’t Oppose Putin

President Obama is playing to his Democrat supporters by mocking the Republican presidential candidates who are running to replace him.

During his speech at a Democratic fundraisers in New York City, Obama noted that the Republican candidates are talking tough about Vladimir Putin.

“They say, when I talk to Putin, he’s going to straighten out … and then it turns out they can’t handle a bunch of CNBC moderators,” Obama said.

He suggested that the attitude expressed by the candidates towards the moderators was a sign that they are not ready to lead the United States.

“If you can’t handle those guys, I don’t think the Chinese and the Russians are going to be too worried about you,” he said.

He told the audience why he wasn’t going to run for a third term – even though many Democrats would want it.

“I explain A: It’s unconstitutional. George Washington set a good example. B: Michelle would not permit it. And C: this has never been about me … I did not say ‘yes I can.’ I said ‘yes we can.’”

The DNC fundraiser was held at the Richard Rogers theater, and tickets to the events included a performance of the Broadway show Hamilton. Obama walked out to deliver his speech after the show.

“I am annoyed that I did not get to see this show again. Michelle and I love this show,” he said. “It also happens to be the only thing Dick Cheney and I agree on … that is a cultural landmark.”
