Rudy Giuliani: Obama Should Be 'More Presidential' Like Donald Trump, Midterm Results Proof

Two of the more prominent faces in the 2018 midterms, Democratic gubernatorial candidates Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum, both gained national attention as newcomers to national politics in Georgia and Florida. To help seal the deal, former President Barack Obama campaigned for the candidates in the days leading up to the election. Neither will likely find themselves in the governor's mansion next year.

Gillum conceded to Florida Republican Ron DeSantis, and while Abrams held out for a runoff against Republican Brian Kemp, she was behind by more than 70,000 votes as of Wednesday morning, and Kemp has surpassed the vote threshold that would signal a runoff election in December.

Trump lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani taunted Obama on Twitter about his failed pitches to voters in crucial swing races, tweeting that the former president could learn a thing or two from President Donald Trump.

"The DeSantis/Scott team won critical races in Florida. Also there was no place President Trump campaigned harder and it paid off. The big loser former President Obama looks like defeats wherever he worked hard," Giuliani tweeted on Wednesday. "Maybe now he will follow 43's more presidential approach."

Shortly after Giuliani's comments, Trump showcased his "presidential approach."

"Those that worked with me in this incredible Midterm Election, embracing certain policies and principles, did very well," Trump tweeted Wednesday. "Those that did not, say goodbye! Yesterday was such a very Big Win, and all under the pressure of a Nasty and Hostile Media!"

As Vox noted, Obama took a noticeably more aggressive tone during rally speeches for the 2018 midterms. He not only took direct aim at Trump, he also talked about the problems within the Republican Party and the "privilege" they were trying to protect.

"Don't be Charlie Brown. Don't fall for the okey-doke. Don't be bamboozled. Don't be hoodwinked," Obama said a rally for Gillum and Nelson. "When words stop meaning anything, when truth doesn't matter, when people can just lie with abandon, democracy can't work."

"They'll get folks riled up just to protect their power and their privilege, even when it hurts the country, even when it puts people at risk," Obama said.

With no mention of the inauguration crowd size, earlier this week Giuliani mocked Obama for the number of people who showed up at rallies leading up to the midterms.

"Dems have to pay to get 6,000 to listen to Obama. Look at turnout in Cleveland today for President Trump. No one has to pay them," Giuliani tweeted. "That's what happens when you keep your promises and keep America on a positive course."
