|Not a mind reader, but I think I know what Obama is thinking.|
The extraordinary meeting was a reflection of the swift and sudden change in the political mood between the frenzied last days of an election campaign and the reality of government and the transition of power between to administrations that follows.
"My No. 1 priority in the next two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures our President-elect is successful," Obama said.
Obama told Trump: "If you succeed, the country succeeds," as the two men sat in high-backed chairs in front of the fireplace in the Oval Office.
Trump thanked Obama for the meeting which he said had originally been scheduled for 10 minutes and went on for 90.
"Mr President, it was a great honor being with you and I look forward to being with you many, many more times," Trump said, adding that he and Obama had spoken about some wonderful and difficult things and "some high-flying assets."
It was not immediately clear about what he meant.
The President-elect also said he would seek "counsel" from Obama.
As the pool of reporters were led out, Trump told them several times that Obama was "a very good man."
Which I'm sure he followed with "You know, for a guy from Kenya."
Here is a little video of the meeting.
Personally I only see one President in this video, and it certainly is NOT the giant Oompa Loompa.
My President is a gracious and hopeful man, who is always working to get the best for the American people.
Mr. Putin's president is a hateful internet troll come to life, who will surely leave a path of destruction in his wake.
