Republican logic has gone from crazy to scary:
Former President Barack Obama should be detained by federal officials for talking badly about President Donald Trump. After Obama said this week that people should “think before you speak, think before you tweet,” in an apparent reference to Trump’s twilight Twitter rants, Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs had harsh words for Obama.
“I think U.S. Marshals should follow him, and any time he wants to go follow the president like he is, and behave… 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,” Dobbs said. “Isn’t there some law that says presidents shouldn’t be attacking sitting presidents?”
Obama never actually mentioned Trump during his remarks in New Delhi. He was asked about his wife, Michelle Obama, making comments about how it was not a good idea to “tweet from bed,” a reference to Trump. “Michelle was giving the general idea .?.?. don’t say the first thing that pops in your head. Have a little bit of an edit function,” Barack Obama explained. “Think before you speak, think before you tweet.” He also pointed out he has 100 million followers, or “more than other people who use it more often.”
