Former president Barack Obama made a few pointed jibes — without actually naming President Trump — in remarks in New Delhi on Friday, taking on social media, climate-change deniers and religious intolerance.
In a discussion period at a leadership forum, the former president was asked about his wife Michelle’s comments this week during a speech in Toronto, when she said it was not a good idea to “tweet from bed,” an obvious commentary on Trump’s early morning Twitter habit.
“Michelle was giving the general idea . . . don’t say the first thing that pops in your head. Have a little bit of an edit function,” he said. “Think before you speak, think before you tweet.”
The former president got a laugh when he pointed out that he has 100 million followers — “more than other people who use it more often.”
Actually, Trump has 44 million followers, Obama 97 million.
