Barack Obama Compares President Trump to ‘Richie Rich’ Character

Former President Barack Obama is breaking his long silence on Donald Trump ahead of the release of his new memoir. In a recent interview in The Atlantic, Obama compared Trump to the spoiled comic book character Richie Rich. He said he assumed Republican voters would be drawn to “classic male heroes,” like John Wayne, but instead went for Trump, who he said has the same nasty personality traits as Rich: “the complaining, lying, doesn’t-take-responsibility-for-anything type of figure.”
