White House Updates Relationship With Military To: “It’s Complicated”

WASHINGTON, D.C.[DuffelBlog] — President Obama updated the White House’s relationship with the Military to “it’s complicated” on Facebook yesterday.

Citing differences of opinion with top military leaders, the president told reporters he wanted to “see other security advisers” but he wasn’t prepared to completely sever his relationship with top military brass.

“I just feel like we’re growing apart,” President Obama told Duffel Blog. “I think we both know this has been building for awhile. We’ve had some good times. We’ve had some bad times. But with the election and stuff, I think it’s time we just take a step back and re-evaluate the relationship and our expectations of each other, while leaving the door open for the future.”

White House Spokesman Josh Earnest later clarified that the president and top brass would still “hook up” when the need arose. “Basically,” Earnest said, “the relationship still allows for a ‘boots call,’ if the president needs some.”

Top military leaders apparently had no idea this was coming. Adm. James A. Winnefeld, Jr., reportedly iMessaged the president, “Wait. What?! You asshole! You didn’t even have the balls to tell us in person?! I can’t believe you would do this over Facebook where everyone can see without talking to us first!!!!!!!!!!”

“(>_<),” he added.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel (@HagelParty) expressed his dismay via Twitter, “Typical. Glad HE knew this was building. I didn’t. #obummer #greyhairdontcare”

        Hey, I was way too busy to comment here on last week’s election results. I normally hate being in the newsroom on election day but when the results started pouring in, it was awesome! There was a lot of silence, followed by shock and then a ton of cursing with “those f’kn Republican @$$h0!3s are ______” being the repeated phrase of the evening. Loved every second of watching/hearing their meltdowns! The next day all the reporters went out to lunch together to console themselves. I wonder if they all had a few drinks to numb the pain…


        • Or a few dozen drinks. 😉 I’m really envious of you getting to see that. You don’t often get that kind of satisfaction from those people.

          Hey, Freedom, what’s the temp in coastal VA? We were at -14F this morning. It’s like the temp of Harry Reid’s soul! 🙂

            It’s not too cold here. It’s 42 right now but it’s really windy. Today’s high is supposed to be around 46. We have not brought out the winter clothes and I have not changed all the bedding to winter comforters, yet. We’re kinda not prepared for the colder weather right now; it’ll be part of the weekend chores.

    I’d have found it funnier if, you know, the “boots” weren’t on my children’s feet.
