President Obama on Friday had the audacity to attack Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump by saying that he has a “long record that needs to be examined,” and insisted that the race for the White House is “not a reality show.”
Obama went on to say. “I think I just want to emphasize the degree to which we are in serious times and this is a really serious job. This is not entertainment, this is not a reality show. This is a contest for the presidency of the United States,” Obama told reporters in his first public comments about since Trump’s GOP rivals ended their presidential campaigns.
Obama also said that the media needs to play a role in vetting the candidates’ policies and not focus on the “circus.”
“If they take a position on international issues that could threaten war, or has the potential of upending our critical relationships with other countries, or would potentially break the financial system, that needs to be reported on,” Obama said in the White House briefing room.
