Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

President Obama held a news conference at the Pentagon on Thursday to discuss the war on ISIS, but as its been the case every time he answers reporters’ questions lately, he ended up responding to the latest ridiculous Trump controversy.

This time, it was about the GOP’s nominee’s claims that the November presidential election could be rigged.

“Of course the election won’t be rigged. What does that mean?” Obama said. “If Mr. Trump is suggesting that there is a conspiracy theory that is propagated across the country, including in places like Texas where typically it is not Democrats who are in charge of voting booths, that’s ridiculous. That doesn’t make any sense.”

Obama also used the opportunity to once again raise concerns about Trump’s ability to serve as commander-in-chief of the world’s most powerful nation.

“Just listen to what Mr. Trump has to say and make your own judgment with respect to how confident you feel about his ability to manage things like our nuclear triad,” Obama warned. “This is serious business.”
