President Obama and Donald Trump are adversaries, even though they are not directly running against each other. So, it was a clear win the other day when Trump posted a 16-second video of Obama that clearly was a takedown of this President and what he stands for. According to Teaparty.org:
GOP front-runner Donald Trump thinks we need a real president.
It’s been a chaotic 2015 around the world, partially thanks to President Barack Obama’s inattention to radical Islamic terrorism at home and abroad.
We’ve seen attacks in France, Egypt and San Bernardino, not to mention the ongoing war in Syria and the concomitant refugee crisis.
However, when it comes to these things, Barack Obama’s mind doesn’t seem to be present. In fact, it often seems like it’s in a galaxy far, far away.
Yes, in spite of the tenuous world situation and worsening relations with both Russia and China, President Obama thought it would be hilarious to cut off a recent news conference to go see “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
In his latest viral campaign advertisement, Donald Trump noted this, pointing out that in spite of real wars raging all over the world, Obama joked that he was cutting off a press conference to go see the new “Star Wars” movie.
Here’s the new 16-second campaign ad, which had already garnered over 30,000 likes on Instagram in about a day over the caption “We need a real president”:
He wasn’t lying, either — Michelle Obama had organized a viewing of the new movie with service members and their families. I’m assuming Obama had to cut out early so that someone could finally get him to memorize what the branches of the U.S. armed forces were in case someone asked him.
After Obama’s mic drop, The Hill reported, White House press secretary Josh Earnest came out flanked by stormtroopers. (Please note this isn’t a joke; I couldn’t make this up if I tried.)
One reporter yelled out, “Now we know what side of the force you’re in, Josh.”
As if there was ever any question.
What is disturbing is that with all the recent violence from radical islamist, military deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan and the recent Paris terrorism, the President had an opportunity to address the Nation and perhaps its fears. Instead, he chose to go to the movies.
It’s no wonder Donald Trump is so popular, by pointing out, in 16 seconds what’s wrong with this President’s behavior. We can only hope that real change happens in the next election.
