Former President Barack Obama jokingly toyed with the idea of using the Navy SEALs to evict President Trump from the White House in 2021.
In a Thursday evening appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” the topic of Trump’s refusal to concede the election arose, although Obama’s media reappearances stem from the promotion of his new memoir.
While the presidential race has not yet been certified and the president continues to build up legal challenges to combat alleged voter fraud, leftists like Kimmel continue to push the narrative that Trump is refusing to leave the White House.
Kimmel, making light of a situation that has divided Americans more deeply than ever before, joked about “someone,” clearly the sitting president, hiding in the White House.
“You know the White House well. You lived there for eight years,” Kimmel said, asking Obama, “Are there places someone could hide? Like, if, say, they were going to be removed? Are there little cubby holes or anything that you know about?”
Not referring to the president by name, Obama laughed and said, “Well, I think we can always send the Navy SEALs in there to dig him out.”
Some on social media made the connection between the former president’s joke and the fact that he greenlit the SEALs operation that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden, claiming that Trump should receive the same treatment as the orchestrator of the 9/11 terror attacks.
They should drag him out the same way they ‘dragged’ Bin Laden out. Full breach, no prisoners.

Obama and Kimmel made several jabs at their president throughout the course of the segment, including that the former president wrote such a lengthy 700-page memoir so that Trump would be disinclined to read it.
“I don’t think it would have had to be 700 [pages],” Obama mocked.
“I wish the transition was going better,” Obama said on a somewhat more serious note. “We lose time during these crises,” he added, referring to the coronavirus pandemic.
As we’ve reported, this is hardly the first time someone close to projected president-elect Joe Biden has pushed the idea that Trump is an unlawful trespasser in the White House who can easily be rooted out.
Earlier this month, a Biden campaign spokesperson warned that the “United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House.”
Over the summer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi quipped that the president would vacate the White House even if he has to be “fumigated.”
The casualness with which these tyrants joke about their new regime is simply sickening. Lord have mercy on this nation!
