Trump to Be Removed by Navy Seals? Watch Obama Joke


On Thursday, former President Barack Obama sat down for an interview with Jimmy Kimmel. During the interview, Obama fantasized about how Navy Seals could extract President Donald Trump from the White House if necessary.

Kimmel began the interview by trying to curry favor with the former President, saying, “We miss you. Why did you leave us with him?”

Obama replied, “I’ve got to follow the Constitution and Michelle’s mandate, which was eight years, and then we had to get out of there.”

Kimmel said, “The Constitution seems a little shaky lately, so I think Michelle’s mandate is a lot stronger.”

Further, into the interview, Kimmel asked the former president, “Do you feel that when you congratulated Biden and Senator Harris that you were premature in doing that?”

“No,” Obama replied with a laugh. “I thought I was right on time. There seems to be some lag … the communications system in the White House used to be better; it was real-time. There’s a lot of computers there that actually tell you what’s going on around the world.”

Kimmel said, “You know the White House well. You lived there for eight years. 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?”

Obama responded, “Well, I think we can always send the Navy SEALs in there to dig him out.”

After the election, Trump’s campaign had immediately released a statement saying that they would not accept the results, arguing, “This election is not over.”

A spokesperson for Joe Biden reportedly replied: “The United States government is capable of escorting trespassers from the White House.”

Back in June, Biden had said that the military would take Trump out of the White House if he refused to leave, saying, “I’m absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch.”

However, General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Congress, “I believe deeply in the principle of an apolitical U.S. military. In the event of a dispute over some aspect of the elections, by law, U.S. courts and the U.S. Congress are required to resolve any disputes, not the U.S. military. I foresee no role for the U.S armed forces in this process.”

Referring to General Milley’s statement, Axios reported:

The nation’s top military official set up Saturday’s highly unusual call to make clear that the military’s role is apolitical, one of the sources said — and to dispel any notion of a role for the military in adjudicating a disputed election or making any decision around removing a president from the White House. Milley told the anchors that the U.S. military would have no role whatsoever in a peaceful transfer of power, one source added.
