Trump: Obama’s Words Okay But Body Language Suspicious


Donald Trump sometimes struggles to think of new things to criticize President Obama for. Recently he said his words were okay but his body language leaves him to wonder if something’s going on. Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?), Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola (ThinkTank), hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"Trump explained to Fox & Friends on Monday that while watching the president deliver his remarks condemning the shooting of police officers in Baton Rouge on Sunday, he noticed something off about the way he carried himself.

“I listened to the president and sometimes his words are okay, but you just look at the body language, there’s something going on,” Trump said. “There’s something going on.”

“What does that mean, ‘There’s something going on?'” asked Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy.

“There’s just bad feeling,” Trump replied. “And a lot of bad feeling about him. I see it too. We have a country that has not been like this since I can remember it."

The Fox & Friends hosts didn’t really know how to react to this and tried to change the subject after a couple of seconds of uncomfortable silence — it seems that even they regretted asking Trump to elaborate on his observations about the secret meanings of Obama’s anti-cop body language.”*

    “I Know There’s Something Going On” was a great song by Frida.

      What exactly was stupid about their talking points in this video? Are you
      saying that Trump is right about Obama and that his body language suggests
      that there is “something going on.”

    • WelNat WelNat
      July 19, 2016 at 9:51 AM

      +Lightbringer his body language saying that he is tired on a big pressure
      and it’s a lot of emotion in his face that he can’t think rationally … he
      is a weak person, nice talker when everything is great but if somethings
      going work he is a weak person ! And I was talking about Turks videos in
      general ! Waste of time ! Big propaganda

      Sure I agree that he’s not a great president, but Trump is implicating that
      he condones police shootings and is a radical Muslim terrorist in disguise.
      Which is utter nonsense.

      As for TYT. They give their opinions on the stories they report. That’s
      the whole point of the channel and you can’t call it propaganda when they
      admit to having different views on it.

      The stories they report contain quotes, videos, and their sources. They
      don’t make up facts or alter the truth like CNN or Fox.

      Just because they’re biased to a certain political view doesn’t mean they
      don’t report it accurately. And just because you don’t agree with their
      views doesn’t mean it’s propaganda or a waste of time.

    • themagicman2010
      July 19, 2016 at 4:24 AM

      No, her speech writers did, intentionally to turn people on her. If you
      believe Michelle or Obama have written their speeches themselves, you’ve
      been conned.

    • Johnnycassedy
      July 19, 2016 at 5:01 AM

      Well I’d suggest you watch the interview where she tells the reporter she
      wrote the majority of it with very little help from any speech writer.

    • Sarah Hansen
      July 19, 2016 at 8:38 AM

      +Johnnycassedy Even if Mrs. Trump didnt know it was a “hand me down”
      speech, its still pretty cringy, that she doesnt know one of Mrs. Obama’s
      more known speeches. Shows she doesnt take 2 seconds to actually do

      The First Wife is and has always been a part of the job. They take the more
      humanitarian jobs and work for organisations.
      Mrs Trump would never in a million years understand two shits of whats
      she’s supposed to do, and would just talk clothes and fashion all the time
      (btw, Trump is so clearly against any foreigners moving in to USA, what the
      hell is he doing with a foreign wife??)

      The Young Turks is a news station that many liberals watch. Just shows how
      mindless liberals are, right?

    July 19, 2016 at 12:32 AM

    Donald Trump is a conspiracy theorist. He always “has a bad feeling” and
    thinks “something is going on” when it really isn’t. Other conspiracy
    theory’s that he has is he believes vaccines give children autism and once
    was a birther for Obama (maybe still is)

    trump takes advantage of *White Privilege* in America to gain personal
    power. It’s actually embarrassing to watch fellow whites eat it up, and a
    damn shame.

    Police brutality will be dismantled, with or without your cooperation.

    • Stannis Baratheon
      July 19, 2016 at 2:24 AM

      +Thomas “TheGreatestLiberal” MacKelly yes you are wrong. How can you call
      something white privilege, when Asians make more money and have a higher
      quality of life and low unemployment and poverty. Where is Asian privilege?
      We are all privileged and have equal abilities by the law to become whoever
      we want. Otherwise that would be against the law. Was my white Irish
      immigrant father privileged when he came into this country with only 5
      dollars in his pocket and the clothes on his back? The man made an honest
      wage and brought himself up in this world as any American citizen can.

    • Stannis Baratheon
      July 19, 2016 at 2:26 AM

      And just so you know more whites are shot and killed and arrested by
      police. Yes there are more white people but it’s true that blacks and
      Hispanics being minorities do tend to be more involved in crimes when you
      stack it up to whites

    • r3661t3r
      July 19, 2016 at 7:54 AM

      +Stannis Baratheon when your Irish father came to this country, did he ride
      in the back of the bus? needed court to allow him attending college?
      economically suppressed for hundreds of years because of his race? I don’t
      think so but at least blacks have running hot water so why are there
      complaining right?

      I guess i found a trump voter.

    • Stannis Baratheon
      July 19, 2016 at 1:09 PM

      +r3661t3r We are talking about white privilage today. It’s nonexistent and
      outright illegal. The past is the past and America has done all it can to
      make amends for the past.
