"After meeting with Mr. Trump . . . Mr. Obama realized the Republican needs more guidance. He plans to spend more time with his successor than presidents typically do, people familiar with the matter said."

President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump sit in the Oval Office. Vice President Biden sits on the sofa, sipping tea.
Trump: You said I was unfit for office, so I brought these barbells.
Obama: Did you bring anything else?
Trump: Was that pun not enough to win you over?
Obama: No, Donald, it wasn't.
Biden: (to Obama) No way. There's no way.
Obama: I can make a president of him, Joe. Now he's a simple huckster, a mere orange con artist, but I can make something of him. I was a professor before I was a senator. I can make sure he knows the fundamental principles of our democracy, at least.
