Obama Hits Trump Where it Hurts — Tells Crowd “Nobody in my administration got indicted”
Former President Barack Obama is likely one of the most valuable assets on the campaign trail leading up to this year’s midterm elections, and with him, he’s bringing plenty of Trump-attacks.
Although the former president shied away from mentioning Trump by name (at least since September at the University of Illinois) when criticizing the current administration, he is not afraid to speak out against what the president and this White House are doing.
Last night at a rally in Detroit, Michigan, where Mr. Obama spoke at length about a variety of issues, including healthcare, foreign affairs and the importance of voting, he zeroed in on the corruption and hypocrisy of the Trump administration.
“They have gone to Washington and just plundered away,” Obama told the crowd. “In Washington they have racked up enough indictments to field a football team. Nobody in my administration got indicted,” he continued.

The Mueller probe has already led to 32 indictments, 4 of which were Trump campaign and/or administration officials. Campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, campaign chairman Paul Manafort, campaign aide Richard Gates and former national security adviser Michael Flynn have all been indicted since the start of the investigation into the campaign’s possible collusion with Russia.
Obama also criticized the GOP’s hypocrisy when it comes to ‘emails,’ saying:
“They didn’t care about emails. And you know how you know? Because if they did, they’d be up in arms right now as the Chinese are listening to the president’s iPhone that he leaves in his golf cart. It turns out, I guess it wasn’t that important.”
