Recently, the New York Times reported that Donald Trump won’t give up his iPhones despite the fact he’s been told that Chinese and Russian spies are eavesdropping on him.
Yeah, we’re talking about the same Donald Trump who smiles as crowds chant “lock her up” and regularly criticizes Hillary Clinton for using an unsecured email server during the 2016 campaign.
Obviously, Barack Obama is having none of it. At a rally in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Friday, the former president picked apart the hypocrisy of attacking Clinton while ignoring Trump’s baffling lack of concern over foreign surveillance. (The NYT also reports Trump once left his iPhone in a golf cart.)
“They didn’t care about [Hillary Clinton’s] emails…because if they did, they’d be up in arms right now as the Chinese are listening to the president’s iPhone that he leaves in his golf cart,” Barack Obama said at a campaign event, slamming GOP politicians and conservative media pic.twitter.com/KjlLHOTXC5

“They didn’t care about emails,” he said. “If they did, they’d be up in arms right now as the Chinese are listening to the president’s iPhone that he leaves in his golf cart.”
Obama had a few other burns for Trump, too.
“Their promise to drain the swamp, that was not on the up and up. Nobody in my administration got indicted.”
The former president was in Milwaukee stumping for Sen. Tammy Baldwin, who led her competitor, state Sen. Leah Vukmir, by 15 points in a recent poll.
