With Parts of Louisiana Under Water, Obama Participates in ‘Surprise Reddit Chat’

Yeah, I suppose he was just strolling by, saw a laptop and decided to talk to his peeps.

Really, is anyone buying this?

“Hi, I’m Barack Obama, President of the United States,” Obama wrote in a message on the site. “Ask me anything. I’ll be taking your questions for half an hour starting at about 4:30 ET.”

The post prompted immediate skepticism about its authenticity, so the commander in tweet offered some proof, posting a message on Twitter linking to the Reddit chat and providing a “verification photo” (above) featuring the president typing on his MacBook Air One.

He then feigned concern about the poor folks under water in Louisiana.

Hey everybody – this is barack. Just finished a great rally in Charlottesville, and am looking forward to your questions. At the top, I do want to say that our thoughts and prayers are with folks who are dealing with Hurricane Isaac in the Gulf, and to let them know that we are going to be coordinating with state and local officials to make sure that we give families everything they need to recover.

If that’s the case, why did Governor Jindal, who’s actually there, slam FEMA’s lack of response?

You know, considering mostly white people live in Plaquemines Parish, maybe we should call this Obama’s Katrina.

Unfortunately, folks down there couldn’t make Obama’s “surprise” Reddit chat.

Remarkably, Obama fielded really tough questions during his “surprise” chat.

Another: “What are you going to do to end the corrupting influence of money in politics during your second term?”

To which he recommends a Constitutional amendment. OK.

Then this softball:

“What’s the recipe for the White House’s beer?” one Reddit user asked.

Just pathetic. We’ll remind you this bubble gum pap comes from Yahoo. Yes, that Yahoo. No, they’re not in the tank for Obama or anything.

    Case of “the internal polling is so bad, I need to be seen in contact with common man.”

    Obama doesn’t hate anyone. He doesn’t have that much connection with his emotions. The best he can do is transient anger.

    What are you going to do to end the corrupting influence of money in politics during your second term?”

    A: Something that will effect everyone except me.

    I don’t believe it was Obama–the grammar isn’t bad, neither is the spelling. Hoax.

    What’s wrong with that picture?

    Doesn’t the president have a computer on his desk in the Oval Office?? That’s where I would want him reddit chatting from.

    When I type “Where R U?”, I want to see “OVL OF” , lol Not some back corner of some cramped office where they actually put the computer.

    How did this photo escape the people to whom “optics” are everything?
