Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Friday called the current leadership in Washington a bunch of "babies" and "losers."
His remarks seemingly referred to President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama, who have been effective surrogates on the campaign trail for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in recent weeks.
“We have a bunch of babies running our country, folks,” Trump said at North Carolina campaign rally. “We have a bunch of losers, they’re losers, they’re babies.”

Trump then said that all the Obamas want to do is "campaign."
He also dredged up a Michelle Obama comment from the 2008 campaign when she criticized Clinton and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, arguing that “if you can’t run your own house, you certainly can’t run the White House.”
Last week the first lady gave a scathing speech against Trump's "locker-room" talk in New Hampshire, and the president spoke this week on Clinton's behalf — presumably the impetus for Trump's comments Friday.
