“This is really what the White House is all about. It’s the “People’s House.” It’s a place that is steeped in history, but it’s also a place where everyone should feel welcome. And that’s why my husband and I have made it our mission to open up the house to as many people as we can.” – Michelle Obama
Riiiiiiiiiight. That’s exactly why, when Congress wouldn’t give him what he wanted in March 2014, Obama closed the White House to visitors. And then in October 2014, when Congress again wouldn’t give him what he wanted, he left Michelle’s famous garden to rot.
Maybe they sent out the BO and Bo photo to try and soothe President Narcissist’s irritable thin skin following his pre-game beer interview. That naughty naughty reporter went off the Fluff His Majesty’s Pillow script and asked him some actual, you know, journalistic-type questions.
“You gave your State of the Union a couple weeks ago, people noticed you had a pep in your step. You were confident, your critics say maybe a little cocky. I guess the question is, you know is, your party lost in November… but you went in there… with such swagger. Should you have been more conciliatory? Is it, to borrow a football metaphor, kind of like you’re the quarterback, you’re doing the end zone dance, but the other team got the touchdown?”
After he snarked at her about that How Dare You question, she asked another, even harder one!
“The economy is doing better. But you laid out a bunch of proposals that you know cannot get through this Congress that is run by Republicans now. Isn’t that kind of counterproductive?”
Obama said that if Republicans have good ideas, they should present them to him.
Yeah, that’ll work. Cuz he’s like ALWAYS been so open and transparent and welcoming to people who want to do something besides spit shine his shoes while he’s wearing them.
At the end of the interview, Mr. Classy said the reporter should finish the whole glass of beer before their full interview scheduled for later, because “It will go smoother if she does.”
Todd Starnes tweeted, “At least Obama didn’t ask Miss Guthrie to make him a sandwich.” Tee hee.
