Obama takes on Trump and the Birthers at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Speaking of Trump, did you know that, in 1989, he spent $85,000 on ads calling for the death penalty for 14 year old boy who was later exonerated of the crime? And then there’s the fact that he’s been lying about how he avoided military service during the Vietnam War.

    I wish we could hear what was going though Donald’s mind and the President ripped him apart. Great stuff.

    A woman afterward got Trump to sign a copy of Obama’s birth certificate.

    I think this explains Obama’s timing on the release of his long form birth certificate. He was setting himself up for an awesome monologue against Trump.

    The other stuff is OK, but the Trump stuff is great. If you want to jump right to it, it starts a little after the 10 minute mark.

    Michele Bachmann was born in Canada? Damn. There go her chances of being President.

    What a tremendous public ass whooping. I loved it. It’s a great final chapter (I hope) in the whole birther movement.

    As for Bachman, I think it’s likely that she was born in the United States. Hopefully, she’s able to address this quickly so that we can get on with it and start talking about issues.

    Not sure if this is the place to ask this, but has anyone else heard about the Tea Party being highly funded by advocates of polygamy? If so, is there a reason the mainstream media isn’t reporting on it?

    If anyone has any “lingering” doubts on the oppressive lying liberal media bias watch this above scandal. A thousand “journalists” laughing at cheap shots on a small table of FOX reporters. How would YOU like to be a FOX reported in that room?! These people have courage. Even more outrageous is the lack of representation by the radio and internet reporters who reach MILLIONS with the truth. Could it be more obvious?

    StepWife there are many, many people “funding” the Second American Revolution. Many more soldiers giving time and mind to it. Yes multiple marriage advocates are part of the coalition. Yes their freedom is being oppressed. Why isn’t liberal media covering it? You might as well ask why aren’t they covering any of the hundreds of additional freedoms being oppressed by the government.

    It would expose their hypocrisy and true affiliations.

    The fake movie ad was pretty lame. And Seth Myers has to be one of the blandest, most whitebread comedians ever.

    Boy O Boy,

    So are just a polygamy booster or are you on the “team”?

    That’s not a marriage proposal, BTY, I’m just curious.

    SW my interest in multiple marriages is based on liberty, justice and freedom. One thing the liberal left has gotten partly right is that government does not belong in the bedroom (even though they think it belongs everywhere else?!). People in this country already have the right to multiple marriages. You can marry and divorce as many times as you want with no limit on your freedom. Why don’t we have the right to multiple simultaneous marriages? People also have the right to multiple simultaneous sex partners. There is no law prohibiting you from having intercourse with a different man or woman every night.

    Multiple marriages are legal. Multiple sex partners are legal. But multiple simultaneous marriages are illegal?!!? It makes no sense! It is legalized discrimination and intrusion. It intrudes on religious rights and sexual rights.

    And while divorce breaks up families, polygamy keeps them intact and expands the role of the family and offers increased love and support. And while casual sex increases the risk of STDs, sex within a bounded set of committed adults eliminates the risk of STDs. “Polygamy” is affirmed by the Bible and many other religions. Abraham, Jacob, Moses, David, and Solomon were all blessed by God and had more than one wife/concubine.

    When we do not stand up to defend every right we are doomed to lose every right. The political “right” affirms Constitutional rights. Liberals have “left” the Constitution and the principles on which is stands and embrace a socialist nanny state. How can we call ourselves “free” when we can’t even marry who we want? The question is not why do I support this but why isn’t the liberal left defending this issue as “passionately” as they argue for gay marriage??!

    Trump says that Obama’s comments were “inappropriate”.

    I will say this for Boy O. At least he responds when asked direct questions. Tater lacks the ability to do that, which, I think, makes him a better troll.

    We should have a Troll Olympics on this site.

    Big Boy O Boy. You strike me as someone who likes to get a little “freaky.”

    Kim thank you I only wish others would afford me the same courtesy instead of resorting to sarcasm which is “the last refuge of those who have nothing to say” or the “the last refuge of the devil exposed”.

    Furball enjoy your right to get “freaky” I prefer a “creative” expression of my rights but to each his or her own. That is our natural right and I trust you agree the NANNY doesn’t have the right to tell us ours.

    1313 I intend to keep it “coming” but wisdom is only crazy to the unwise.

    Someone should have dumped soup on Trump’s head at the end, or thrown a pie in his face.
