As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Attacks the Press for Its Coverage of Hillary

Seriously? The press hasn’t been hard enough on Trump?

I guess long gone are the days when a man with the power of the presidency held back from public attacks on the press. Obama long ago turned the White House into a kind of third-world autocratic presidential palace, with his executive fiats, attacks on private citizens, and so forth. That he might be chilling free speech is of no concern to him.

Obama spoke today during a rally for Hillary Clinton in Philadelphia:

I’m not running this time, but I sure do get frustrated with the way this campaign gets covered. I’m just telling the truth . . . You don’t grade the presidency on a curve. This is serious business.

This from the man who has been graded on a curve by the press since he became a candidate in 2007. And from someone who has treated the presidency as the least serious business one can imagine.

Whoever gets in office next will be cleaning up his vast mess. They’ll do better if they’re held to account and covered by the press more aggressively than he was. Which, if Trump is elected, is a sure thing.

  1. Obama w/his loving constituents; who the hell attends a political rally in the middle of the day? The losers who depend on the largesse that the rest of his have to work for to provide. I am in a job that I can’t stand, so that these a/wipes get to listen to a man that cannot run again….run his mouth.

  3. Spot on, Keith! Obama has been graded on the curve since his first day in politics. Still waiting to see his scholastic records from Harvard, etc.
    He needs Hillary desperately to cover up for his disastrous eight years!

    Meanwhile, a physician from the world renowned Loma Linda University Medical Center in So. California has produced an indepth 18 minute video outlining his speculation that Hillary is suffering from Parkinson’s.
    He makes an excellent argument:

    Note: The same argument could be made for Bill Clinton. There are several videos showing an uncontrolled trembling of his hands.

    Both of the Clintons’ are unfit to serve! No more ‘twofers’!!!

  4. “You don’t grade the presidency on a curve. This is serious business.”
    Yes it is Barry. That is why it is appalling that you are president and that Hillary Clinton thinks she is fit to be president.
    The curve being “its a black person’s turn to be president,” and “its a woman’s turn to be president.”
    Never mind the socialist ideology, the lack of credentials, the criminality, the nepotism, the executive actions that cut out an integral part of our system of government; our elections have become the most unserious of the unserious. Dictated by money, power and pay for play.
    The American people have lost their voice and you and people like Hillary Clinton and the MSM have made that happen. And that is grotesque.

  5. They might wish for MrsTrump’s ideology, but money rules the MSM and the bottom line keeps them afloat.
    Who wants to watch MrsClinton’s first presser as Preezy- eh, no so much.
    But announce that The Donald is giving his first presser! Prime time, baby.
    If the press truly wanted to dismiss, ruin, or just kill MrTrump’s candidacy, all they had to do was to ignore him. They didn’t, they couldn’t – it meant viewers, more ad money, big talkers getting attention.
    Estimates that MrTrump got 3 billion dollars worth of ‘free’ airtime is probably true.
    He looks good, is good for a quote or two, and of course the promising First Lady is gorgeous and photogenic.
    The Clintons- leftovers from the back of the fridge – old, stinky, and bor- ing.

    So, yes, MrObama, the Press should just jump all over MrTrump – quote him every night, all day long, over and over until every American has heard what he has to say.

  6. Obama always has a complaint,a snide remark, a criticism, a snub, a scolding, a disapproval, a slight indicator of a immature president’s tantrum held at bay.

    At this point I am surprised we don’t have reserved some portion of the earth’s available oxygen as presidential air for Barack Obama alone to breathe.

  7. Obama is only attempting to keep the news off of Hillary’s health and her blunder when she referred to us as Deplorables. As usual, the Conservatives have grabbed the Deplorable moniker and run with it. T-shirts are out and we are all having fun with her desperate attempt save herself by insulting half of the American voters. No one believes anything she says so therefore, she would not be able to govern as her trust is blown from 30+ years of scandals. For some reason, every time the Clintons are involved with anything a scandal erupts. I wonder why.

    • She never had plans to govern. The plan is for her to delegate and outsource all of her duties. She is terrified of reporters and will do anything to avoid them. Her Press Secretary is going to need daily blood transfusions to survive!
