Fox Business host argues Obama ‘should be brought back’ by US marshals for criticizing Trump abroad

Former President Barack Obama won’t stop tactlessly criticizing President Trump, and Fox Business host Lou Dobbs would love to see U.S. Marshals do something about it.

During Obama’s trip to India, the former president offered Trump some unsolicited advice: “Think before you speak, think before you tweet,” before gloating that he had higher social media follower counts than “other people who use it more often.”

“Don’t say the first thing that pops in your head. Have a little bit of an edit function,” Obama told the audience, according to the Washington Post.

Dobbs had Steve Forbes on to talk about Obama’s criticisms of Trump, a practice that is typically not done by former presidents of their successors.

“Is that nauseating, or what?” the Fox Business host asked.

“It’s nice to see this guy going around the world,” Forbes said, “doing his apology tours, but being out of the Oval Office. What he hasn’t gotten used to is he doesn’t matter anymore. He can get publicity, but he doesn’t make policy.”

“I think U.S. Marshals should follow him, and any time he wants to go follow the president like he is, and behave,” Dobbs said. “I mean, this is just bad manners. It’s boorish, it’s absurd, he doesn’t realize how foolish he looks. I mean, he should be brought back by the Marshals. Isn’t there some law that says presidents shouldn’t be attacking sitting presidents?”

“There’s an unwritten one, sort of a Logan Act for ex-presidents,” Forbes quipped, noting that criticizing their successors is typically not something ex-presidents do.

The U.S. Marshals Service probably won’t get involved in this, but if the “Class Police” existed, they’d definitely have more than enough cause to make an arrest.
