Donald Trump Tells White House Guests Obama ‘Watched Basketball All Day’
Donald Trump reportedly tells visitors of the White House that Barack Obama sat around and watched basketball all day.
Whenever the president has senators, friends, or any guests visiting the White House, he’s reportedly more than willing to take them on a tour. According to the Washington Post, White House officials and inside sources have noted that while showing a recent group around the private dining room next to the Oval Office, he claimed his predecessor, Barack Obama, “just sat in here and watched basketball all day.”
While Trump was previously accused of calling the White House a “dump,” the president also said the private dining room was in “rough shape” and had a hole in the wall when he first occupied the White House.
An anonymous Obama White House official allegedly spoke to the Post and denied the claims. The source states there wasn’t a hole in the wall and Obama “rarely worked in the room and did not watch basketball there.”
Obama isn’t the only former president to be mentioned during Trump’s alleged impromptu tours. Citing White House aide Cliff Sims’ book, Team of Vipers, Trump is reportedly thrilled to show his guests the area where Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky had their sexual encounters. “We’ve remodeled it since then,” Trump allegedly said to his visitors during a December tour.
