Donald Trump continues to prove his obsession with former President Barack Obama by allegedly telling visitors of the White House that his predecessor sat in the Oval Office’s private dining room and “watched basketball all day.”
“He just sat in here and watched basketball all day,” Trump reportedly said of Obama, The Washington Postreported on Monday, citing unnamed White House officials.
Many Twitter users noted that Trump’s alleged comment wreaks of racism.
One user wrote: “I remember “brainwashing” techniques being discussed by teachers & professors during my education in world events. What’s going on in WH now is like a Cliff-Notes booklet personified! Wow!”

The former reality TV star, who recently held the country hostage with the longest government shutdown in history, also tells guests that the dining room was in “rough shape” when he moved in and had a hole in the wall, according to the Post.
But an anonymous Obama official pumped the brakes on Trump’s #fakenews, telling the Post that Obama rarely used the dining room for work and did not watch basketball in the room. The official also denies there being a hole in the wall.
Meanwhile, a new book from former White House aide Cliff Sims alleges that Trump often takes guests around the less frequented areas of the West Wing and makes comments about former President Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the Post that Trump is “proud of the White House and its rich history.”
Before moving in, Trump reportedly described the White House as a “real dump.”
Meanwhile, the Trump campaign plans to sue Sims for violating an NDA, despite the president claiming his book is “fiction.”
