(CNN) – During a conversation with David Letterman on his new Netflix program, former President Barack Obama issued a stern warning for the current commander in chief: “One of the things that Michelle figured out, in some ways faster than I did, was part of your ability to lead the country doesn’t have to do with legislation, doesn’t have to do with regulations, it has to do with shaping attitudes, shaping culture, increasing awareness.” Although Obama was extremely hesitant about directly commenting about President Donald Trump, the message he sent was clear.

And it comes in the wake of the upsetting news that during a private meeting with legislators at the White House, President Trump referred to African nations as “shithole countries.” The President tweeted out a denial that he ever said this, with two Republican legislators saying that they couldn’t remember. Illinois Democrat Richard Durbin, who was in attendance, responded that Trump did use the term and said things that were “hate-filled, vile and racist.” And a Republican, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, said he appreciated Durbin’s statement — and had challenged Trump’s comments.

It would be a mistake to dismiss the comments as a “distraction” because, with Trump, they are the main show. His rhetoric sends a message to the nation and to the world about the values that we treasure and that the nation will stand for in 2018.
