"The most popular American, whose legacy is the primary target of Donald Trump, has, for now, virtually disappeared from public life," New York Magazine's Gabe Debenedetti writes.

The big picture: "Obama ... has mostly opted out of liberal America’s collective Trump-outrage cycle. Though he reads the Times and other newspapers, he doesn’t [obsess over] daily Trump developments ... He is upset by the administration’s actions, and he’s confided to friends that what worries him most is the international order, the standing of the office of the presidency, the erosion of democratic norms."
