Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman Tom Perez introduced former President Barack Obama as America’s “real president” at a DNC fundraiser Thursday night.
“Let’s give it up for the real president of the United States,” Perez said at Thursday’s fundraiser, Politico reported.
Obama reportedly then told the crowd of Democratic donors that they are “right to be concerned” about Trump’s presidency.
Perez’s false descriptor for Obama is just the latest instance of prominent Democrats abandoning political norms in order to undermine President Trump. (RELATED: Leftists Want Democrats To Pack The Supreme Court Once Trump Is Gone)
Obama has sharply broken with precedent by repeatedly attacking Trump. When Obama left office, the existing standard was for presidents to refrain from publicly criticizing their successor.
Obama and his wife have slammed Trump more than a dozen times since leaving the White House. (RELATED: Trump Allies Face Harassment, Protests Anywhere They Show Their Faces)
