This would be hilarious if it weren’t so fucking pathetic.
President Obama on Friday urged the news media to closely scrutinize Donald Trump’s record and past comments, and avoid coverage that highlights “the spectacle and the circus” of the campaign trail.Obama previewed his role as an anti-Trump spokesman and pressed the media to follow suit.
“He has a long record that needs to be examined. And I think it’s important to take seriously the statements he’s made in the past,” the president told reporters at the White House.“I just want to emphasize that we are in serious times and this is a serious job.”Obama took a jab at Trump’s past as host of the “Celebrity Apprentice” TV series: “This is not entertainment, this is not a reality show, this is a contest for president of the United States.”
If only we had a group of people around to point out the hypocrisy to this clown.
On Thursday night, President Obama appeared in an episode of the survivalist reality show “Running Wild With Bear Grylls,” part of an effort by the White House to highlight the perils of climate change. While trekking in the Alaskan wild, the president and Mr. Grylls, one of reality television’s biggest stars, bemoan the rapid retreat of a vast glacier.
That’s not even close to be Obama’s low point, of course.
Scoring a presidential interview is a distinction coveted by White House journalists, anchors and network bookers alike, but today the honor is being given to three diverse, wackyYouTube creators — Bethany Mota, GloZell Green and Hank Green.
Their expertise ranges from putting together “comfy and cute outfits” to completing zany challenges like inhaling massive amounts of cinnamon spice and eating cereal out of a bathtub (while still in it).
Yes, Obama was interviewed by this thing:
We won’t even get into his fondness for selfies.
