The Unpresidential President

Such a (bad) comedian.

Apr. 3, 2014

Barack Obama isn’t known for his warmth or goodwill toward political opponents. In fact, he seems to have far kinder words for the likes of Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un than for Republicans. He spent Wednesday in the Midwest, stumping for an increase to the minimum wage while in ultra-liberal Ann Arbor, Michigan, before heading off to some glitzy Chicago fundraisers. Of course, he also found time during his busy day to mock Paul Ryan’s latest budget proposal. “It’s like that movie ‘Groundhog Day,’” he said, “except it’s not funny. If they tried to sell this sandwich at Zingerman’s [an exorbitantly expensive Ann Arbor deli he just happened to drop by], they’d have to call it the stinkburger or the meanwich.” Wow, did he come up with those zingers all by himself? The man continues to bring down the dignity of the Oval Office.
