Well, Obama is incredibly smart and observant, so …
Barack Obama called Donald Trump a “fascist” in a phone conversation with Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia during the 2016 presidential election, Kaine says in a video clip featured in an upcoming documentary about Hillary Clinton.
Kaine, Clinton's running mate on the Democratic ticket, recounts the call during an exchange with Clinton that was caught on camera in 2016. Kaine's wife, Anne Holton, was also present.
“President Obama called me last night and said: 'Tim, remember, this is no time to be a purist. You've got to keep a fascist out of the White House,'” Kaine says before adding with a laugh that Obama “knows me and he knows that I could tend to err.”
Clinton replies, nodding, “I echo that sentiment.”
Cue the right-wing outrage over Barack Obama calling a fascist a fascist. I just hope he didn’t do it while wearing a tan suit. Seriously, though, has Trump done anything in the meantime to disabuse Obama — or anyone else, for that matter — of this notion?
If anything, he’s burnished his fascist bona fides.
The clip is part of Hillary, a four-part Hulu documentary that premieres on March 6.
