PRESIDENT OBAMA attacked President Trump's obsession with crowd sizes Saturday, asking if he was "traumatized" if no one came "to his birthday party when he was a kid."
While speaking at a campaign rally for his former vice president and current Democratic nominee Joe Biden, Obama asked rhetorical questions while wondering aloud why the current president is obsessed with crowd sizes.President Obama asked why Trump was obsessed with crowd sizesCredit: AP:Associated Press Obama asked if Trump was traumatized because no one showed up to his birthday partiesCredit: Getty Images - Getty
"What is his obsession, by the way, with crowd size?" Obama asked the crowd during the campaign event in Flint, Michigan. "He's always worried -- this is the one measure he has of success."
Obama's scathing remarks continued as he mocked Trump for caring more about the sizes of his campaign crowds than for caring about the coronavirus pandemic.
"He's still worrying about his inauguration crowd being smaller than mine," the former two-term president said with a smile.
"It really bugs him," Obama continued. "He's still talking about that."Obama went onto criticize Trump for caring more about crowd size than the coronavirus pandemicCredit: Getty Images - Getty Obama said Trump still is not over the fact his inauguration crowd was bigger than Trump'sCredit: AFP
"Does he have nothing better to worry about?" Obama asked. "Did no one come to his birthday party when he was a kid? Was he traumatized?"
Obama and Biden are scheduled to appear in two different Michigan cities on Saturday, starting in Flint and then flying to Detroit, where musician Stevie Wonder will open for them.
Although a poll released this week showed Biden up eight percentage points in the state, Biden will need to perform well in these predominantly Black areas in order to carry the state from Trump, who narrowly won the state four years ago.
Trump Saturday was participating in several events in Pennsylvania, where Biden will be following on Sunday and Monday.
