Obama got mugged by reality after one hasty claim about New York and Donald Trump

Democrats were giddy at the prospect of Joe Biden’s predecessor being tied up in court in the Big Apple.

But it’s safe to say that they should have been more careful about what they wished for.

Now Obama got mugged by reality after one hasty claim about New York and Donald Trump.

Former President Barack Obama once famously declared, “I continue to believe Mr. Trump will not be president.  And the reason is because I have a lot of faith in the American people, and I think they recognize that being president is a serious job.  It’s not hosting a reality show or marketing. It’s hard.”

Now it appears that Obama is still reeling over the events that transpired nearly eight years ago.

On a recent episode of the “Smartless” podcast, Obama proclaimed that nobody in New York likes Trump.

Obama said, “Look, uh, you watch Trump’s campaign, you, you watch his career, if, if, if you know anybody. He comes from New York. There’s nobody in New York who does business with him, or, or, or, or, or, or lend him money [sic].”

He continued, “He’s not considered a serious guy here. So, so, but, so I wasn’t, I was surprised he was elected, but I, I wasn’t surprised in terms of his behavior.”

 

But it appears that Obama is making another mistake.

New Yorkers don’t see Trump as just another Republican

Not only is Trump being hailed as a hero by everyday New Yorkers, but he’s also picking up endorsements from groups traditionally outright hostile to Republicans and conservatives.

He was endorsed by the Steamfitters Local 638 labor union in New York.

Trump was also given a rockstar’s welcome from construction workers as he made his way to the courthouse as part of a criminal trial from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

He spoke with a gathering of workers and was met with cheers of, “We want Trump!” and “USA!”

 

When Trump visited Hamilton Heights bodega worker Jose Alba in person, residents of Harlem could be seen chanting, “Four more years!”

Alba was robbed, attacked, and forced to defend his life before being disgracefully accused of murder by the far-left D.A. Alvin Bragg.

 

After that high-profile incident, the Bodega and Small Business Group (BSBG), representing thousands of bodegas in New York City, endorsed Trump. 

Democrats underestimating of Trump isn’t wise

The group cited Trump’s support for small businesses in the face of rampant crime, in contrast with the actions of Democrat politicians, as a reason for their endorsement.

While no Republican presidential candidate has won the Empire State’s electoral votes since 1984, Donald Trump is running surprisingly competitively in the state this year.

A recent Siena poll showed Trump with 37% of the vote, compared to just 47% for Joe Biden.

Democrats know that if the vote in New York is even somewhat close in November, they will be politically wiped out in a historic faction.

If Obama and other Democrat bigwigs continue to underestimate Trump, they’re doing so at their own peril.
