Did Barack Obama Get His Shoes Fixed?

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Piano rolled blues, danced holes in my shoes.
Remember when poor street hustler Barack Obama had big old holes in the soles of his Florsheim salesman shoes? Here’s a new arty sex photo by White House pornographer Pete Souza, and the shoe soles maybe have holes, still? Or are the shoes just blurry to fuck with your minds? Or, is America finally officially bankrupt, a terrible The Road hellscape where even the rich young president staggers through life with hobo shoes? (Also, note how he is on the phone with Benjamin Netanyahu, and making the “Bibi’s got a little bitty dick” hand signal.”) [White House Flickr]

    Looks like he’s explaining to John Boehner how much of a dicksack he is.

  • Min

    Cool. The President’s carbon footprint has a built-in, low-impact ventilation system.

  • Servo

    I thought he only wears Terrist Combat Sandals.
    Nice ’90s phone.

  • freakishlystrong

    He’s wearing his soles out running out for fucking hamburgers all the time.
    ‘Cuz Muslins love hamburgers.

  • Country Club Jihadi

    Who will be the first to complain that BHO disrespectfully puts his feet on America’s furniture?

  • The Schadenfried PAC

    [re=334808]magic titty[/re]: He explaining to it both Boener and Bitch McConnel via conference call. Minutes will for forwarded to Lieberman.

  • kdaddy

    Ronald Reagan better not catch him doing that. oh wait..

  • WadISay

    I think Bo may have something to do with the spot on his left sole.

  • Lord Growing

    Actually, the joint between his fingers was photoshopped out.
    If you had to talk to that putz, you’d get stoned too.

  • sezme

    Those aren’t even his shoes. It’s a paperweight made out of John Edwards’ feet.

  • CivicHoliday

    [re=334815]Country Club Jihadi[/re]: Somewhere at this moment, a Texas schoolboard member is looking at this photo on the internet and shitting himself in rage

  • One Yield Regular

    Like what moran would go to Paris and NOT come back with a new pair of shoes?

  • The Station Manager

    According to my Republican Friends*, the word for this is “Uppity”. He becomes prz’nit and all of a sudden he’s all “I Don’t Want These Shitty Shoes Anymore, Oh And Death To America”.

    *Haha, just kidding, I don’t have any of those.

  • Capitol Hillbilly

    When is the film of “The Road” coming out? Why the delay? Are they afraid it will inspire roaming bloodcults?

  • Doglessliberal

    More importantly, he is sitting down and with his back to Our Flag instead of standing and saluting as one always should be if one is a True Patriot. He clearly hates America and wants to blow it up. He is probably plotting to blow it up on that call. With North Korea. His ally.

    The average barefoot and dressed in rags voter will resent the “look at my fancy shoe bottoms with no holes in ’em” Obama! Fer sure.

    This is a Biden-grade gaffe.

  • Citizen Kang

    That’s the POTUS playing the world’s smallest violin for Bibi.

    Uh, is that an attempt at a ‘stach I see on his lip?

  • bitchincamaro

    Man, those dogs look tired. And the Flickr commenters are almost as crazy as the youtubers.

  • donner_froh

    making the “Bibi’s got a little bitty dick” hand signal.

    If the Bibi referred to is gorgeous transsexual actress Bibi Fernandez (Andersen) then he is talking about someone with no dick at all.

  • proudgrampa

    [re=334850]pondscum[/re]: I think you’re right. Ooooh, boy. That’s gonna really upset the populace: a president with facial hair???

  • donner_froh

    [re=334853]bitchincamaro[/re]: Maybe not that bad–most of the really insane ones are from one guy (who apparently has been banned under a different name or something) and reactions to his comments. The rest seem to be strangely innocous “Hi, Mr. Obama” or comments about the picture itself.

    Or so it seems after scrolling through them for about 30 seconds.

  • Mad Farmer Manifest

    Dick Cheney would have already made new shoes out of the hides of screaming babies and added hellhound leather accents, for style.

  • pondscum

    [re=334862]proudgrampa[/re]: Hairy muslin. Sounds scratchy.

  • WickedWitch

    The alt-text wins the afternoon.

  • choinski

    That brown spot is not a hole, its Bo spoor.

  • Dean Booth

    Isn’t he insulting the Muslins by showing the soles of his shoes? Or maybe it’s a secret message.
