When I talk to Putin, he’s gonna straighten out — just lookin’ at him,'” Obama said Monday night at a Democratic fundraiser in New York, as he mocked the gaggle of GOPers angling to succeed him.

“And then, it turns out they can’t handle a bunch of CNBC moderators!” he exclaimed, to the roar of laughter from the crowd. “I mean, let me tell you: If you can’t handle — if you can’t handle those guys, you know, then I don’t think the Chinese and the Russians are gonna be too worried about you.”

If the Republicans think the CNBC debate moderators were hard on them, they should just be grateful they didn’t have to answer to Obama on that stage.

Late Show host Stephen Colbert gleefully mocked Eric Trump for telling Sean Hannity that all the agents would find at his dad's estate is a “note from me telling him how proud I am of him and what a great job he was doing as president.”
