Amid concerns about Donald Trump's fitness to be President, former President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that he was willing to serve as "temp President" while Trump undergoes psychiatric evaluation.
"The president, I think. has the power to direct that an investigation cease, but that wasn't - as the story is told, that's not what happened", the former attorney general said.
When it comes to Obama and his life after the presidency, a friend of the president told PEOPLE that he is taking a hands off approach. The first time Barack and Joe got together following the inauguration ceremony, was to celebrate Obamas' new offices.
Since leaving the White House, Obama hasn't made much mention of the man in office, even though his reign as president has been trash. People Magazine spoke to sources who claimed to have inside information on Obama's disdain for Trump.
The publication notes that despite the resignation, Obama still has a staff of 20 people and an office in the West end in Washington, DC.
"Mr. Obama realized the Republican needs more guidance", the Wall Street Journal reported.
A source also said that despite the negative things President Trump has had to say about his predecessor and Obamacare while in office, Barack has still continued to speak with him when he reaches out and "try to help". He has also accused the Obama administration of spying on him, a charge he's never been able to prove yet continues to repeat. Taking the stage at an event in Chicago in April, Obama opened by coyly asking, "So, uh, what's been going on while I've been gone?" A source connected to Obama revealed to PEOPLE that his opinion of the current president "hasn't gotten any better".
Then again, it's easy to keep a sunny disposition when you've been windsurfing for the past three months!
