Donald Trump, Defending 'Rigged' Election Talk, Calls President Obama 'a Phony'

Trump cited a 2008 video where Obama talked of shenanigans.

Trump, speaking at a campaign rally on an airport tarmac in central Florida, described a television clip of Obama he said he viewed Monday evening, showing the then-Illinois senator campaigning during his first presidential run.

Trump then attempted to imitate the president, lowering his voice and speaking at a slower pace, saying, “I know because I come from Chicago.”

“This guy is such a phony guy,” added Trump. “What a phony. What a phony group.”

“I come from Chicago. So I want to be honest. It's not as if it's just Republicans who have monkeyed around with elections in the past. Sometimes Democrats have too,” continued Obama. “You know, whenever people are in power, you know, they have this tendency to try to, you know, tilt things in their direction.”

“We have a president, all he wants to do is campaign, his wife, all she wants to do is campaign,” said Trump last Friday in North Carolina.

Obama previously advised Trump to “stop whining” in regard to claims of a rigged election while speaking to the press at the White House on October 18.
