Guardian: ‘It Eats Him Alive Inside,’ – Trump’s Insane Hatred of Obama

Guardian: President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump once sat together in the Oval Office. “I was immediately struck by Trump’s body language,” wrote journalist Jon Karl in his memoir Front Row at The Trump Show. “I was seeing a side of him I had never seen.
