After President Donald Trump described former President Barack Obama as a “sick guy,” the former president’s loyal team rose in unison to defend him.
“Enough said,” wrote former White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, sharing the statement on Twitter.
Trump’s accusations clearly triggered a nerve among former Obama staffers, as many of them spent their weekend battling back the suggestion that their boss engaged in shady tactics to take down Trump.
Obama’s former foreign policy spokesman Ben Rhodes sprang into action on Twitter, directing a series of challenges to Trump’s statements.
Other staffers reacted with incredulity.
“Why would Obama decide close out his presidency by illegally wiretapping a buffoon that everyone thought was going to lose in a landslide?” questioned Tommy Vietor, Obama’s former National Security Council spokesman.
Favreau quickly slipped into gallows humor as the afternoon wore on.
“By tomorrow morning, the party line will be that Obama personally bugged Trump Tower while disguised as the cable guy,” he wrote.”
Former Obama speechwriters Jon Lovett and Jon Favreau, who recently launched a “Crooked Media” left wing media outlet, immediately launched a series of snarky messages on Twitter.
“They said Trump was presidential on Tuesday,” Lovett wrote on Twitter. “Nixon got weird at night. Trump wakes up angry.”
He directed his angry followers on Twitter to question members of Congress.
Obama former senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer also questioned Republicans for their failure to denounce Trump’s accusations.
“Have any elected Republicans had the courage to speak out against Trump’s deeply, deranged tweets this morning?” he asked.
“Do you even know how many Mass voters I drove to NH on Election Day?” replied Favreau, citing another one of Trump’s claims of voter fraud.
“Don’t tell anyone, but I worked with Ted Cruz’s dad to kill JFK,” joked Feiffer.
