Barack Obama is known for his smooth speech, but he turned into the Stutterer in Chief when he tried attacking Donald Trump at a rally in Indiana this week.
The president was speaking to the crowd about unemployment when he turned to Trump's presidential campaign, and totally lost his way.
"If we turn against each other based on divisions of race or religion, if-if-if-if-if-if-if-if-if-if-if we fall for, you know, a bunch of okie-doke, just because, you know it-it-it uh," Obama said. "You know, it-it-it-it-it-it sounds funny or the tweets are provocative then we're not going to build on the progress that we started."
Obama hasn't been the biggest supporter of Trump during his presidency. In 2011, Obama famously roasted Trump at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, joking about his birth certificate and mocking Trump in the process. He recently criticized the GOP nominee for the manner in which he ran his campaign. "This is not entertainment," Obama said in May. "This is not a reality show. This is a contest for the presidency of the United States."

Trump has refused to remain silent in the wake of Obama's attacks. "If he campaigns, that means I'm allowed to hit him, just like I hit Bill Clinton," Trump warned at a rally in Sacramento.
Trump has been relentless in reminding voters of the sexual assault allegations that have surrounded the former president for decades. Trump recently blasted both Clintons, accusing Bill of rape and Hillary of enabling her husband's sexual escapades.
"He shouldn't campaign," Trump said of Obama. "He should go out and do the job that he's supposed to be doing."
