Obama shined more brightly than Trump and it hurts him most in Virginia !
Donald Trump is obsessed about the crowd size, ratings and his hand size which he likes to boast about it at every given opportunity. He often compares the crowd size of his campaign with President Barack Obama. He refuses to accept the fact that he couldn’t pull more crowd than Obama. Trump lacks the basic leadership qualities and he is nobody in front of People’s President Barack Obama.
Now that Obama had returned to politics, he campaigned for both Phil Murphy in New Jersey and then for Ralph Northam in Virginia, and both of whom will be facing Republican challengers in their respective state’s gubernatorial races on November 7th.
However, when it comes to Trump’s favourite topic – crowd size – the former President’s attendance in Virginia was a sight to behold. People were seen standing in a line that stretched almost interminable down multiple city blocks in Richmond.

Trump has, on nearly every public occasion, drawn attention to the size of his crowd in his typical, self-congratulatory manner. From his inauguration – which was blatantly less attended than Obama’s – to a despicable moment in which Trump addressed the hurricane victims after Harvey struck the state, the President has demonstrated a shameless obsession with his own adulation.

Unlike his decidedly insecure successor, Obama does not need to stroke his own ego by pointing out how many “fans” showed up to see him speak. And that is exactly why they show up.
