A National Embarrassment: Obama’s ‘Interviews’ With YouTube Clowns Turns into PR Disaster

Two more years of this crap, people.

President Obama was asked about his ‘first wife’ in a PR-disaster interview on Thursday after picking three of the most popular YouTube content creators to interview him.

GloZell Green, a popular YouTube fixture known for her extreme acts like eating a ladle full of cinnamon, offered the president three samples of her trademark green lipstick as gifts for his daughters – and for the woman she called Obama’s ‘first wife.’

‘You know something I don’t?’ Obama cracked before Green corrected herself and referred to Michelle Obama as ‘first lady.’

But the PR disaster that was the White House’s 50-minute-long ‘YouTube interview’ was a national joke before it was half-over. 

But not if you read the American media.

Another YouTube star, 19-year-old Bethany Mota, asked the leader of the free world, ‘If you had any super power, what would it be?’

Obama’s answer: the ability to speak to anyone in their native language. And flying.

He’s barely literate in English, never mind speaking another language.

The Thursday afternoon event, staged on three miniature video sets erected in the East Room of the White House less than an hour after the president’s return from speaking in Lawrence, Kansas about his State of the Union goals, included some serious issues.

But GLoZell’s green lipstick and Obama’s ‘first wife’ will be what’s remembered.

The married Los Angeles-based video blogger, usually sporting her green lipstick, starts each of her videos with a cheery: ‘Hello! This is GloZell! Is you ok? Is you? Good, ’cause I wanted to know!’

The White House press corps, accustomed to toiling for a decade or more before ever getting to ask a sitting president a question, was unimpressed when the administration announced the plan to give Mota, GloZell and Hank Green (no relation) a cozy afternoon with Obama following the annual State of the Union address – and a giant platform.

This is the same petulant man-child who doesn’t consider Fox a legitimate news outlet. And of course there was a selfie involved, because he’s a very serious man.

    Just when you think this President has placed this Republic at the lowest circle of hell by his actions, he finds a deeper level of shit to pile on the Republic.

    I wonder if that includes Austrian?

    The last two years of this administration are going to be like a train wreck in slow motion. America’s enemy’s must be enjoying the show immensely.

    Face it, we live in an idiocracy. This is how the Democrats win. Hillary will do the same thing and we will get our clocks cleaned unless we follow the same stupid game plan.

    You’d think he’d have picked up a little Bahasa during his years growing up in Indonesia. Or SOME language during four years of prep school and a B.A.

    Why be a chump like Bruce Wayne, studying and training to be extraordinary, when waiting around for a bite from a radioactive parrot can make you SuperLinguist?

    Wow, he’s alleged to be a real, honest to goodness, scholarly Harvard graduate. If that be the case, a Harvard degree ain’t what it’s cracked up to be.

    “a Harvard degree ain’t what it’s cracked up to be.”

    It’s just a finishing school for the rich and entitled where they learn who’s in the In-Group so they will know how to screen out the riff raff when they’re gods of Wall Street and media.

    The worst thing about this to me is that there are actually thoughtful people on youtube who could have been good interviewers and would have actually tried to educate their audience with this opportunity.

    But no, the chick who eats cereal out of a bathtub is much better option. Is she more popular on youtube than some of the more thoughtful personalities? Yes (unfortunately). But he’s THE FUCKING PRESIDENT. He doesn’t have to worry about the notoriety of his interviewer! There is no excuse for this!

    Funny, my superpower would be to understand any language.
    He just wants the listener to understand him. What a tool.

    I don’t think the majority of American citizens understand that obama is truly a child and hence does and says very childish and spiteful things! obama did this little childish act to provoke the ire of the American citizen that cares about our nation and the peril that he’s allowing to happen by appeasing the iranian terrorists! obama truly despises America and the American way (although he just loves the free money he gets from playing the president)a lifestyle that he could never achieve by merit in the private sector! So for the next two years we just have to grin and bear the romper room that has hijacked our whitehouse!

    I would like to have the power to lie in all peoples language. Not stop the senseless bloodshed in the world or child starvation. I must have everyone hear me talk. I am convinced he is mental.
