It’s no secret Donald Trump has a bit of an inferiority complex when it comes to former President Barack Obama. After all, he spends a considerable amount of time comparing his administration’s “accomplishments” to that of his predecessor’s.
So when #ObamaOutdidTrump started trending on Twitter following Trump’s unsurprisingly embarrassing performance at the G7 Summit over the weekend, it was the perfect way to remind him that he’ll never quite measure up.
From Obama’s treatment of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin to his legendary oratory skills, #ObamaOutdidTrump showed us everything we’ve been missing since Trump took the Oval Office.
Here are some of the best #ObamaOutdidTrump tweets.
Trump’s warm-and-fuzzy relationship with Putin has drawn much criticism over the last 2 1/2 years. Obama’s interactions with the Russian president, however, were mostly marked by ongoing foreign policy disagreements.
Damn straight. Won the college and the popular vote twice. Was dignified and honourable every single day. The direct opposite of Trump. #ObamaOutdidTrump— Human1st (@Human1st) August 26, 2019
If you’ll recall, Hillary Clinton received nearly 3 million more votes than Trump in the 2016 election, a fact Trump still refuses to accept.
Obama decreased the deficit during bad economic times— Lana Conroy (@lanagirl67) August 26, 2019
Trump increased deficit during economic boom
impressive failure of @realDonaldTrump trying to herald a platform for fiscal responsibility
hate to say this but #ObamaOutdidTrump
This #ObamaOutdidTrump tweet was yet another reminder that Trump’s policies have added trillions to the national debt, despite his promises that he would reduce the debt “very quickly.”
#ObamaOutdidTrump by simply caring and having a sense of humor.— @crybaby19511 (@crybaby195111) August 26, 2019
Even Obama haters can’t deny that the 44th president of the U.S. was an incredibly compassionate human being. Remember when he unabashedly shed tears while addressing the country after the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012?
Trump, meanwhile, bragged about crowd sizes after visiting survivors of the recent mass shooting in El Paso, Texas.
Barely a day goes by when Trump doesn’t make some kind of gaffe, whether on Twitter or during one of his bizarre press conferences. On the other hand, Obama has been called “one of the great orators in American history.”
#ObamaOutdidTrump in NOT assaulting 16 women.— E. Jean Carroll (@ejeancarroll) August 25, 2019
Obama has never once been accused of violence against women. According to Business Insider, “at least 24 women have accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct since the 1970s.”
These #ObamaOutdidTrump tweets were more on the humorous side—but no less worth checking out.
Overall, the #ObamaOutdidTrump hashtag was a stunning reminder that Obama treated the presidency with the upmost dignity and professionalism.
Make sure you’re registered to vote in the 2020 election so we can begin to restore what Trump has systemically destroyed.
