President Obama took a brief respite from his two-week summer vacation on Martha’s Vineyard to attend a Democratic fundraiser for Hillary Clinton on the islandMonday night. And with more than two months to go before the Nov. 8 election, the commander in chief said he’s already tired of talking about Donald Trump.
“You notice I haven’t said much about her opponent,” Obama told the approximately 60 guests who contributed $10,000 each to attend the fundraiser at a private home in Chilmark, Mass, according to a White House transcript.
“Frankly, I’m tired of talking about her opponent. I don’t have to make the case against her opponent because every time he talks he makes the case against his own candidacy.”
Obama said this despite the fact that he has yet to really hit the campaign trail for Clinton, who is running on an agenda that includes cementing the 44th president’s policy legacy.
At the Monday fundraiser, Obama further emphasized “a sense of urgency” in “finishing the job of getting her elected.”
“This has been an unpredictable election season,” Obama said. “Not only because of anxieties and concerns that the American people have, but also because of the changing nature of the media and voting patterns. There’s still a lot of uncertainty out there. And if we are not running scared until the day after the election, we are going to be making a grave mistake.”
