This was classic Obama.
Speaking at a rally for the Democratic candidate Ralph Northam in a gubernatorial election in Virginia, President Obama spelled out a lesson for Trump in the most direct way possible.
It was an article written specifically to elicit these types of responses, and the sole reason why Breitbart.com has anyone covering Hollywood and celebrities in the first place.
Appealing shamelessly to the anti-immigrant right (basically those who vote for him) gives Trump the political cover he desperately needs.
If you think you miss him now, you'll miss him even more after reading this.
Trump's allies are desperately trying to distract from the Russia story by pointing fingers at the Obama administration.
The Senate voted to repeal an Obama-era regulation that permits states to set up retirement accounts for low-wage workers.
Obama shouldn’t give a damn about any political fallout or care about any partisan backlash. His response is badly needed for history and posterity.
Obama's farewell address is scheduled for January 10th in Chicago. Savor it while you can.
President Obama's strategy for taking on Trump in 2020 isn't important, but the thinking behind it most certainly is.
Trump can be stopped, but only if Americans take their democracy as seriously as they claim to.
The new media ecosystem “means everything is true and nothing is true.”
This isn't political retribution, but a fight for the future of American democracy.
Maher didn't waste his time fawning over the president and provided a template for the rest of the news media on how to, you know, do their jobs properly...
Trump may need some burn cream after he watches this.
Speaking to an audience of start up entrepreneurs and tech people at the White House's Frontiers Conference in Pittsburgh last week, Obama took aim at this myth and smacked down the concept that Silicon Valley could do a better job running government than the people, who, you know, actually work in government.
This is extremely unfortunate for the millions of families who are looking for relief.
Obama was on top form, calling out the media for their insane Hillary Clinton coverage.
The facts remain: George W. Bush was amongst the most disastrous presidents in America's history, and we are still all paying the price for it.
Much of Obama's real legacy will not be understood for many, many years to come.
After 8 years of Republican led attacks, Obama's popularity is on the rise again.
This was spectacular.
You really do gotta love this guy.
"We have been otherwise engaged with what can only be described as feces throwing primates masquerading as a political party on the other side of the aisle and the mass movement of conspiratorial idiocy they have spawned."
It was 2010 and John McCain was attempting to humiliate Obama over health care reform. The president wasn't having any of it though, and b*tch slapped McCain in the most withering fashion.
In a post on facebook titled "OBAMA IS A SPECIAL KIND OF STUPID" (yes, she really did say that) Palin went on a syntactically garbled rant in an attempt to paint the president as a supporter of Islamic terrorism bent on stealing American citizens' guns.
This wins the internet hands down.
He said it FIVE TIMES and Terrorist Beetlejuice still didn't appear.
Jeb's understanding of reality has reached an all time low.
Marco Rubio was supposed to be the Republican incarnation of Barack Obama. It turns out he was just another cheap politician with no class.
Being a smug white dick isn't as exhausting as it looks, apparently.
In an extremely interesting interview with New York Times Magazine about his economic legacy, President Obama delivered a stinging assessment of current conservative economic ideology and trashed the economic platforms of the Republican candidates running for president.
His response to those demanding "diversity" sounds like something Bill Maher would say.
Maybe it really will all be okay.
Obama just played his hand like a world class poker player.
A Clinton/Sanders ticket would be near unstoppable, particularly when President Obama hits the campaign trail with them and activates his own considerable support base. The Sanders campaign team have already intimated that this is a possibility, and given the relative good naturedness of the primary thus far, it looks like a no brainer.
Brown, who says he has voted Republican his entire life, was extremely critical of President Obama, and in particular the Affordable Care Act (ACA). That all changed when Brown was able to get treatment for a life threatening autoimmune disease through the ACA.
Virginia McLaurin's joyous visit to the White House does not mark the end of racism in America, but provides a powerful symbol of how far the country has come, and where it might one day end up.
The right way: be as nice as you can, and save the politics for at least a day or so. The wrong way? Everything else.
On Saturday night, Chris Christie and Marco Rubio unwittingly revealed the default Republican position on every policy ranging from healthcare to taxes and the environment. What is that response? In one word: Obama
The leading voies who are trashing President Obama securing the freedom of four U.S. prisoners from Iran this weekend, including former Marine Amir Hekmati, Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, and Pastor Saeed Abedin have tied themselves in knots expressing happiness at the release of the prisoners, while explaining that Obama is still a bad, bad man whose just implemented nuclear deal in no way opened the door to this positive development, or to the quick release of 10 U.S. sailors who accidentally encroached into Iranian waters last week.
Above all though, Obama's speech was a call to action to carry on the good fight, to rise above the nastiness, hate and fear mongering and to focus on solving hard problems with courage.
Ben Carson's foreign policy plan is a stupid as his economic plan. It doesn't bear any relation to reality, and Carson is promoting it knowing full well his audience doesn't have the intellectual ability to see how utterly ridiculous it is.
In response to conservatives questioning the authenticity of Obama's tears over the death of thousands of Americans killed by guns this week, Trevor Noah delivered a blistering, angry attack on their astonishing assholishness.
Well that was quick. After Obama bravely confronted the insane gun culture in America and showed raw emotion over the thousands of lives lost to gun violence in America, Sarah Palin has waded into the debate Hockey Mom style with the finesse of a drunken ballerina.
President Obama did the right thing today. Period.
