In a pre-recorded interview for CBS Sunday Morning, Obama family vacation buddy and CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King conducted a gooey interview with former President Obama regarding his new memoir about his time in office. Aside from whining about Republican opposition to his agenda, King lamented the state of the country seeing as almost 73 million people voted to reelect President Trump and predicted there would be no peaceful transition of power.
“72 million people voted for Donald Trump. What does that say to you about the state of this country,” she lamented to the former President. And according to Obama, people voting for Trump meant “we are still deeply divided” because “the power of that alternative world view that is presented the media that those voters consume, it carries a lot of weight.”
King absurdly prompted Obama to share his fears of people having different opinions and how it was damaging to democracy:
KING: Are you worried about that?
OBAMA: Yes. It is very hard for our democracy to function if we are operating on just completely different sets of facts.
“But as clear as we sit here today, we're not going to have a peaceful transition,” King declared without evidence. “I think about John McCain calling, George and Laura bush welcoming you and Michelle Obama to the White House.” She then complained about President Trump not acting like her buddy.
