Obama goes after Trump with this well-chosen zinger

Obama goes after Trump with this well-chosen zinger

Ouch, take that!

He sure knows how to go for the jugular, our soon-to-be-former president. Every other Democrat is blaming Trump for his discordant tone and divisive rhetoric. That includes Obama, although he has little room to talk.

So instead Obama isolated Trump’s true Achilles heel at a Democratic fundraiser Saturday. Here, via the Associated Press, is what he said, barely able to contain his own laughter:

Has anybody bought that wine? I want to know what that wine tastes like. I mean, come on. You know that’s like some $5 wine. They slap a label on it. They charge you $50 and say it’s the greatest wine ever.

Come on. Oh, boy. Selling wine. That’s not what we’re for. Couldn’t make it up.

Never mind that the criticism was coming from a man who’s hardly done an honest day’s work in his 54 years. But apart from that, has he forgotten his own foray into the world of alcoholic beverages?

In 2011, CBS News and other media outlets eagerly reported that Obama had become the first president to brew beer made in the White House. The concoction, styled White House Honey Ale, was made moreover using “equipment the Obamas bought with their own money.” Imagine that: He used his allowance!

As of 2012, three styles more have been added: White House Honey Blonde Ale, White House Honey Porter, and White House Honey Brown.

To quote the president: Couldn’t make it up.
