In his latest book, Obama compares Rahul Gandhi to a student who does his coursework but lacks the aptitude to master a subject. His exact words were:
Rahul Gandhi has a nervous, unformed quality about him, as if he were a student who'd done the coursework and was eager to impress the teacher but deep down lacked either the aptitude or the passion to master the subject.
We are told of the handsomeness of men like Charlie Crist and Rahm Emanuel, but not the beauty of women, except for one or two instances, as in the case of Sonia Gandhi.
Other world leaders like US President-elect Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin have also been mentioned in his book.
'A Promised Land' written by Obama focuses more on his political stance than his personal life.
More than anyone else, I wrote my book for young people—as an invitation to once again remake the world, and to bring about, through hard work, determination, and a big dose of imagination, an America that finally aligns with all that is best in us. https://t.co/1yZrYWuckX— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) November 12, 2020
And, here's what Twitter had to say about what Obama wrote in his memoir with regards to Rahul Gandhi.
By the ways how many times Obama interacted with Raga to for such demoralising and under playing opinion .....atleat raga is decency personified and cultured person....which is highly appreciable virtue...rarity in these days for politicians— faisal khan (@faisalkhan70) November 13, 2020
Very correct— Abhayverma (@Abhayve24693796) November 13, 2020
What will be his views on genius Modi, I wonder— ครђฬเภ (@Shynash21) November 13, 2020
I think @BarackObama has no right to insult @RahulGandhi .— Shivam agarwal (@shiv9236) November 13, 2020
I am supporter of BJP, but still Rahul Gandhi is one of the main opposition leader of India, and it's not acceptable that a person from USA, insult an Indian leader.
What Mr. Obama is saying is absolutely correct. However he realized this little late.— Prasad Parvatikar (@parvatikarpp) November 13, 2020

Its Mr Obama's individual view but is this based on the f2f interaction he had with Mr Rahul in India?. @BarackObama sir should clarify. We as citizens living in India knew the ground reality on what is happening, who is who and what is the future which is more important !!— Venkat (Venkatesan Padmanabhan) (@Venkat87845761) November 13, 2020
The 768-page memoir is expected to hit the stands on 17th November.
