Liberal billionaire George Soros called former President Barack Obama his "greatest disappointment," still bitter that the former president didn't seek his counsel after Soros helped get him elected.
Soros made the comments in a wide-ranging interview with New York Times Magazine.
After Obama's election in 2008, "he closed the door on me," Soros told NY Times Mag.
"He made one phone call thanking me for my support, which was meant to last for five minutes, and I engaged him, and he had to spend another three minutes with me, so I dragged it out to eight minutes," Soros said.
Obama "was someone who was known from the time when he was competing for the editorship of The Harvard Law Review to take his supporters for granted and to woo his opponents," Soros told NY Times Mag.
As for the current slate of Democrats, Soros was non-committal about whom he would support for the 2020 nod, adding that it was too soon to say if he would support Sen. Bernie Sanders.
But Soros took a shot at one potential 2020 candidate: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.
"She was using #MeToo to promote herself," Soros told the NYT.
Soros said he it was Republican extremism that compelled him to support Democrats, though he isn't particularly fond of that lot either.
"I don’t particularly want to be a Democrat," Soros told NYT mag.
