President Obama said in an interview released Monday that he could have beaten Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump “if I had run again.” In his most pointed critique yet, Obama said Hillary Clinton’s campaign acted too cautiously out of a mistaken belief that victory was all but certain.

“If you think you’re winning, then you have a tendency, just like in sports, maybe to play it safer,” Obama said in the interview with former adviser and longtime friend David Axelrod, a CNN analyst, for his “The Axe Files” podcast. The president said Clinton “understandably . . . looked and said, well, given my opponent and the things he’s saying and what he’s doing, we should focus on that.”

Trump took exception to this critique, tweeting out later in the day that “President Obama said that he thinks he would have won against me. He should say that but I say NO WAY! — jobs leaving, ISIS, Care, etc.” –WP

Sheriff Clarke has been an outspoken supporter of President-elect Trump throughout his candidacy. He’s also been an outspoken critic of the way Barack Obama has created a huge racial division in our nation and especially his war on cops. Clarke’s made many stinging remarks directed at Obama over the past couple of years, but his recent tweet, where he responds to Obama’s bragging about how he could’ve beaten Trump for a third term, has to be his all time best.
