During his speech tonight at an event to help Ted Strickland win his Senate race against Rob Portman, President Obama went on an extended rip of the Republican Party for their choice of nominee.

The president laid out his case by first pointing at Republicans for being completely obstinate throughout the full eight years of his presidency, concluding that they built the party that nominated Trump.

"He didn't build the building himself, but he just slapped his name on it and took credit for it," Obama snapped.

And so it went. Mocking Republicans for nominating a guy who admires Vladimir Putin and says things "no decent human being thinks, much less says, much less does," the president was relentless.

Just as with Michelle Obama's speech earlier today, you could hear the anger in President Obama's voice. It was very controlled, but also angry, as he hung Donald Trump right around Portman's neck. By name, even.

Watch. He will not disappoint.
