President Barack Obama commented on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s 2005 videotape about groping women, by saying it would disqualify him from getting a job even at a convenience store.
Speaking at a campaign rally in Greensboro, North Carolina, on Tuesday, Obama said the choice between Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton was clear even before the videotape was leaked last week. “Now you find a situation in which the guy says stuff that nobody would find tolerable if they were applying for a job at 7-Eleven,” Obama told the crowd, referring to the convenience store chain.
Obama strongly criticized Republican for backing Trump despite them condemning the remarks made by him in the leaked videotape. “The fact that now you’ve got people saying: ‘We strongly disagree, we really disapprove … but we’re still endorsing him.’ They still think he should be president, that doesn’t make sense to me,” Obama said.
People reacted to his comments against Trump on Twitter, in various manners and focused on the interruptions he received from the audience present.
During the campaign, protesters disrupted President Barack Obama on three occasions as he supported Hilary Clinton. A man and woman wearing “Bill Clinton rapist” T-shirts shut down the event for nearly two minutes. Twitter reacted to this event quite strongly.
Obama reacted to various disruptions by saying, “You know what, this is our democracy at work,” and “This is great!”
