Former President Barack Obama spoke out against President Donald Trump on Friday while speaking at the University of IL.
The Fox & Friends hosts this morning reacted to Obama's big speech yesterday going after Trump and the Republican party, with Ed Henry saying, "Barack Obama decided he wants to make the midterms about 'me'".
Obama also implied in his speech on Friday that Trump and his supporters do not think Nazis are bad, asking, "We are supposed to stand up to discrimination".
"The more former President Obama speaks about the "good ol years" of his presidency, the more likely President Trump is to get re-elected", senator Lindsey Graham tweeted.
While in his speech, Obama did not bash Trump directly, he did make some digs that could only be attributed to the current president. Each of the seven candidates that President Obama campaigned for on Saturday fit that description.
Barack Obama headlined his first campaign rally of 2018 in Anaheim, Calif. Saturday, following a stinging speech on Friday in which he criticized current US president Donald Trump.
"More often it's manufactured by the powerful and privileged who want to keep us divided and keep us angry and keep us cynical because it helps them maintain the status quo and keep their power and keep their privilege", he also said.
"You happen to be coming of age" amid backlash to progress, Obama told the students at University of IL at Urbana-Champaign. "Over the past few decades, the politics of division and resentment and paranoia has unfortunately found a home in the Republican Party".

During his speech, Obama highlighted the seven Democratic candidates now running in the region and in highly contested counties.
"I wish he had gone a little harder on Trump", said Lee Rice, 73, an electrician from Oakdale in California's central valley.
The Democratic former president assailed Republicans as "unwilling to find the backbone" to challenge Trump head-on - accusing them instead of answering "outrageous" actions with "vague statements of disappointment". "To all the young people that are here today, there are now more eligible voters in your generation than in any other, which means your generation now has more power than any other to change things".
"If you're a patriot and you like the course America is on, just ignore them, get behind this president, and vote", she told her viewers.
Taking aim at a key campaign argument by Trump's Republicans, Obama challenged them for laying claim to a roaring economic recovery that saw 200,000 jobs added last month.
Four years later, the Republicans picked up nine Senate seats and 13 House seats. "We've seen basic norms and principles that have served us well for decades increasingly violated", Obama said.
Republicans say they aren't concerned.
"As a fellow citizen, not as an ex-president but as a citizen, I'm here to deliver simple message and that is that you need to vote because our democracy depends on it", Obama said, according to Politico.
