President Obama indicated the GOP in a speech he gave inColumbus where he blasted the GOP for their intransigence and for creating Trump. He did not pull any punches.

The President drew the path from the GOP's irrational intransigence during his administration directly to the creation of Trump.

"The people who knew better didn't say anything," Obama said. "They didn't say 'Well I disagree with his economic policies, that goes too far.' They didn't say 'I am not sure his foreign policy is the right one for America but we can't allow our politics to descend into the gutter.' People like Ted's [Strickland] opponent [Rob Portman (R-OH)], they stood by while this happened. And Donald Trump, as he is prone to do, he didn't build the building himself. He just slapped his name on it and took credit for it. And that's what happened in their party. All that bile, all the exaggeration, all the stuff that was not grounded in fact just kind of bubble up, started surfacing. They know better, a lot of these folks who ran and they didn't say anything. And so they don't get credit at the very last minute when finally the guy that they nominated and they endorsed and they supported is caught on tape saying things that no decent person would even think much less say. Much less brag about. Much less laugh about. Or joke about. Much less act on. You can't wait till that finally happens and then say that's too much. That's enough. And think that somehow you are showing any kind of leadership and deserve to be elected to the United States Senate. You don't get points for that. In fact, I am more forgiving of the people who believe it than the people who know better and stood silently by out of political expediency."
