Obama reads a “mean tweet” from Trump. Who’s laughing now?

This is from October, but I am just seeing it now.  I thought I’d share.

Arrogance incarnate?

    Oremus; that Pres. Obama is the last president ever who “thinks” he knows everything.

  2. Tony Phillips says:

    Arrogant, indeed. Why can’t Obama be meek and humble like Donald Trump?

  3. Prayerful says:

    Not Pres Obama. He might have acquired some wisdom in avoiding making any comment on the Pres-elect’s staff choices.

  4. AnnTherese says:

    Yeah. I don’t thing ANYONE is laughing about Trump becoming president. Though I have no doubt he will give SNL endless material… and that will make us laugh.

    There is a pleasing synergy between this post and the post on schadenfreude.

    One might even go so far as to call it a thing of beauty.

    On the topic of arrogance, it will be refreshing to have someone in the White House who is not so self-aggrandizing.

    That clip is included in a thoroughly delightful YouTube video called “In the Halls of the Trumpen President,” highly recommended as schadenfreude has been officially pronounced not-a-sin.

    Obama behaved like a schoolchild throughout his presidency. He governed as if his ideas were the only ones worth considering. From making statements like: “republicans can come along for the ride, but they gotta sit in the back” . . . to referring to babies as “punishments” . . . from “we’re not a Christian nation” to his inciting remarks leading to police deaths and violence against whites; this president’s actions were far more divisive and violent than Trump’s words.

    I’m definitely laughing. I went to bed at 9 Monday and got up to a whole new world. Let all God’s people say: YEE-HA!

    oops, sorry, meant Tuesday, election day is always TUESDAY.

    Never do the touchdown dance until you see the points on the scoreboard.

    As long as we’ve got a moment for levity, this should smooth over all the frayed emotions at Ms. Clinton’s loss:

    Indeed! – yet in some ways I prefer “In the Hall of the Trumpen King” (SMB Productions [2:24]): happily we can enjoy both without having to choose only one. (Voting preference probably complicates a lot, but I suspect anyone could enjoy a fictionalized analogue of them, if built into something like Chayefsky and Lumet’s movie, Network.)

    The man never tires of being wrong.
