Sarah Silverman calls Trump 'shriveled penis hole' for blasting Obama: 'Doesn't have labs to say it to his face'
Trump had called Obama 'grossly incompetent' and 'corrupt' and referred to the 'Obamagate scandal'
Comedian Sarah Silverman slammed President Donald Trump on Monday, May 19, for criticizing former President Barack Obama, and said that the Republican doesn't have "the labs" to denounce the Democrat leader to his face.
Silverman made the statement shortly after Trump called the former president "grossly incompetent" and "corrupt." Trump, in a statement to White House reporters on Sunday, May 18, said: "Look, he was an incompetent president, that’s all I can say. Grossly incompetent." The Republican's comment came shortly after Obama made a thinly veiled dig at Trump in a commencement speech delivered on Saturday, May 17.
Silverman then took to Twitter to unload on Trump, writing: "I’d love to see Trump say any of this shit he’s saying about Obama to his face. There’s no way he’d have the labs to even do just that. He’s an oozing shriveled penis hole of a man." It appeared that the comedian had updated her tweet ten minutes before, with the previous version stating: "I’d love to see Trump say any of this shit he’s saying about Obama to his face. He doesn’t have the labias. He is a smelly, smelly penis hole of a man."
The comedian, a staunch Trump critic, had also slammed Trump's immigration policy on her Twitter account last year, calling him "purposefully cruel."
Trump slammed Obama on Sunday, May 18, after the former president denounced US authorities' response to the coronavirus outbreak in the country. Obama, in his virtual address to college graduates, had said that the pandemic had exposed the American leadership.
"More than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing," Obama said without taking names of the officials. “A lot of them aren’t even pretending to be in charge,” he added.
It was also revealed on Tuesday, May 20, that following the tensions between Obama and Trump, the presidential portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama will not be unveiled and hung in the White House until Trump is out of office. People familiar with the matter told NBC News that the long-held tradition of current presidents attending the unveiling ceremony of the portraits of their predecessors and their wives will be skipped during Trump's presidency because of his and Obama's bitter feud.
Reports state that if Trump wins the 2020 elections, Obama may have to wait until 2025 for his portrait to hung among all the former US presidents in the White House. The break of tradition comes after Trump launched an attack on the former president last week accusing him and former Vice President Joe Biden of committing a crime in relation to the probe and prosecution of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Trump has claimed the unfounded accusations as "Obamagate", claiming that the crime committed by the former president was worse than the Nixon-era Watergate scandal.
Amid Trump's claims, US attorney general William Barr said that he did not expect a justice department review of the FBI’s handling of 2016 election interference of Obama or Biden.
"As to President Obama and vice-president Biden, whatever their level of involvement, based on the information I have today, I don’t expect Mr Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man,” Barr said.
