Obama Cares More About Dumb Skip Gates Than Every Woman On Earth, Combined, + Rihanna

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Well it is ABOUT TIME someone spoke out about Obama’s malicious treatment of Rihanna that night like a year ago when her boyfriend, Rihanna’s Boyfriend, hit her. And look, we already have the Daily Beast, explicitly designed for the publication and promotion of such a crucial polemic:

Here’s “Amy Siskind,” adult:

“For the millions of women who voted for Obama on his promise to protect their reproductive rights, this past weekend’s whipsaw on abortion funding is just the latest example of a president who frankly could care less about women beyond their votes. […] He had beers with Skip Gates, but ignored it when Rihanna was almost strangled to death.”

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • FMA

    Are all of The Daily Beast’s writers as retarded as Meghan? Is that a requisite for employment?
    On the other hand, what do this Amy person’s breasts look like?

  • Larry Fine

    Rihanna has a nicer ass and better legs than Skip Gates.

  • magic titty


  • MLHencken

    Whipsaw? Really? Ok.

    Tina Brown was on Morning Joe today and is thankfully not the OTHER Tina Brown.

    Anyway, this is obviously part of Obama’s Socialist Agenda to commandeer all American uteri.

  • AggieDemocrat

    What the fuck was Barry supposed to do, drive over to Chris Brown’s house and beat the shit out of him?

  • user-of-owls

    “Amy Siskind,” adult

    Think you got the development stage wrong:

    “Amy Siskind,” pupae (we’ll also accept ‘larva’)

  • proudgrampa

    If Amy has casabas like Meghan’s, she might be worth paying attention to…

    Note, I didn’t say “listen to” or “agree with”…

  • TGY

    Well played, Amy. Well played. Oh, wait..AHAhaHAHaHAHahahaaaaa

  • I-man

    I was wondering if it was only the conservatives that have fun with crazies, also. Rihanna would that be a pornstar by the way?

  • shadowMark

    OMG! First Zach Efron and now Rihanna. All the kids are going to come to teh Wonkett now and send old people like me to the Death Panels.

  • m_supercomputer

    [re=455783]Larry Fine[/re]: RACIST.

    Seriously, though, I find myself kind of impressed by that article. *Any*one can do poutrage about things that are related to each other in some way, but it takes a true innovator to connect these dots.

  • SwanSwanH

    The Rihanna from Barbados? (Illegal immigrant.) Where’s your birth certificate, Ms. Siskind?

  • Mustang

    I have no idea who Rihanna is, and I bet President Obama is glad he doesn’t know who she is either. But, I have to say here that I am incredibly sick of having to hear nonstop about all the drama that occurs to Mr. and Miss celebrity. Just do your job. Actors act. Singers sing. I have no interest in what happens in your personal life anymore than you care what happens in mine.

  • Aflac Shrugged

    Likewise, I blame Obama for starving children worldwide, when he could easily have been on tour replicating the miracle of the loaves and the fishes instead of drinking beer with Skip Gates and his jackass arresting officer.

    No one will ever beat you like that, Meghan honey. He’d shatter his wrists on the gigantic calcium deposit you’ve got behind your eyes.

  • gambypants

    could care less? “couldn’t” care less — ugh, women!

  • vladster

    Hey Amy, never mind Hopey, where the fuck was everyone else – all 300 million. We should all go over to Chris’s house now and re-educate him.

  • slavojzizek

    Give her credit for keeping the ‘Obama didn’t invite any girls to the basketball game’ story alive. It will surely be the event that defines the Obama presidency.

  • Gumboz1953

    [re=455800]Mustang[/re]: Add to that the families of a certain politician who quit her job in the middle of a term — effectively becoming nobody of importance, which means she should have also relegated her family and all hangers-on to oblivion — and I would agree with you, 100%.

  • sarcasticusername

    maybe ms. siskind should have made her way to a press conference and asked the big black president why another big black man was such a douche to his girlfriend, you know kind of like how he got asked about gates.

    oh and isn’t this the same amy siskind that has been championing the quittah from wasilla? you know the one, that great defender of women’s rights up there also, surely her pal sarah was everywhere denouncing this chris brown fellow. but yeah whatever, obama should totally stop worrying about that whole presidentin’ thing and just be dr. phil and have everyone that’s fighting over for a little mediation.

  • depraved indifference engine

    There is some beautiful PUMA rage in the comments of that article. And in the article. Also.

  • Terry


    That would have been interesting. Or drive over and insist the Secret Service deliver the whipping.

  • germansteel

    Maybe Michelle is a little more down with Barack having a beer with the guys than she would be with him knocking back a few with a chick with a hot name.

  • JMP

    [re=455800]Mustang[/re]: Obama’s got a preteen daughter; you can bet he knows who Rihanna is, and probably wishes he didn’t.

  • WarAndG

    I can’t believe how much I care about not caring about everybody’s FUCKSHIT senseless anal-i-geez.

  • MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend

    Rihanna isn’t even an Amerikan!

  • Gumboz1953

    [re=455789]AggieDemocrat[/re]: No, that’s what the Secret Service is for. Or, I guess, that’s how the argument would go.

  • teknonick

    Thanks a lot this post


  • FMA

    [re=455795]m_supercomputer[/re]: This is exactly the kind of provocative, cutting-edge thinking that readers expect from The Daily Beast, sponsored by Carl Jr.’s — “Carl Jr.’s: Fuck You, I’m Eating.”

  • TJBeck

    [re=455782]FMA[/re]: OK, at http://www.lisamacci.com/thejusticehour/images15/Siskind.jpg, there MAY be boobs under the 16 layers of heavy fabric.

  • Gumboz1953

    [re=455813]Terry[/re]: You beat me with the Secret Service reference!

    Now beat me with something else. Something that smells like leather would be nice on a rainy day like today.

  • loquaciousmusic

    [re=455826]teknonick[/re]: I like you! You’re funny! Stay awhile!

  • JMP

    [re=455782]FMA[/re]: Can’t see her breasts, but from her picture with the article I’m wondering how she’s apparently never learned to use a comb or brush, even for an official photo.

  • x111e7thst

    [re=455809]slavojzizek[/re]: I don’t play basketball but I like to wrestle. I keep inviting girls but they never seem to accept. Which is sad cause I’m pretty sure I could beat at least 40% of them.

  • Nigerian Business Executive

    No, Amy. My marginalized position in society is more downtrodden than your marginalized position in society. And my dad can beat up your dad. Can too!

  • proudgrampa

    [re=455823]Gumboz1953[/re]: Ya know, the more I think about it, that’s not a bad idea. Let’s let Obama send agents around to beat up bad people (Lieberman, Boehner, Limbaugh, et. al.).

    The President might get something done!

  • hunter.blatherer

    Barack Obama stole your new bicycle.

  • Rumproast

    FYI, My co-bloggin’ pal Betty Cracker has been blogging about the steaming pile of Siskind for a while now:


  • ShamWow

    [re=455803]gambypants[/re]: That is truly my biggest pet peeve. I’ve dumped many a guy for it.

  • thefrontpage

    Hey, Amy, we’ve got your “whipsaw” right here, baby!

  • Chain Tattoo

    Psychologists have introduced the Siskind unit as a measure of the stupidity of an attention whore. In essence, the natural log of the subject’s stupidity raised to the power of his or her need for attention gives the measure of Siskindity. Amy is the theoretical maximum on the scale, although Levi Johnston measures .996 Siskind and may someday overtake her.

  • binarian

    Jeez, Ms. Siskind, what a dope you are. Rihanna has more than enough money to take care of herself, hire lawyers and/or hitmen and so forth. So shut the fuck up.

  • Jim89048

    I for one approve of Brown on Rihanna violence, due to the possibility of less Brown and Rihanna if it’s done right.

  • EdFlinstone

    It takes a special puma, like Amy, to criticize Obama for the Stupak ammendment, yet supports the anti-choice Wasilla grifter. Of course by special I mean fucking retarded.

  • 4tehlulz

    Yes, because Barack Obama is also the Speaker of the House.

  • Buzz Feedback

    Amy should gratefully take her .78 cents on the dollar and head for the hills.

  • ManchuCandidate

    PUMA never ends.

  • Come here a minute

    I call on the president to immediately invite Rihanna and Rihanna’s boyfriend to the White House picnic table for beers, with which they can beat each other over the head.

  • Prommie

    I know what that siskind needs. She needs the cock, she needs man meat, stat. She’s just pissed off at men because she hasn’t been boned good in too long.

    [re=455835]JMP[/re]: You are correct, sir, and indeed, she might even be able to get laid, if she used a comb or a brush, and combed her hair straight forward over her face.

  • proudgrampa

    [re=455791]proudgrampa[/re]: After further review, Amy does not have anything resembling Meghan’s casabas.

    The call on the field stands: end of story, nothing to see here folks. Let’s move on.

  • lawchic

    Make the stupid stop…please! I beg someone to make the stupid stop, it’s burning my ears!! I had never heard of Amy Siskind before the primaries/election last year, but since being introduced to her writings, I have this weird tick and surge of anger whenever I hear her name.

  • sanantonerose

    Whipsaw is a perfectly fine word dating back to 1538: ELYOT, Runcina, a whypsawe, wherwith tymber is sawen.

    Used figuratively, it is applied to something that is disadvantageous in two ways.

    Yes, I have access to and use the OED. Suck it, light-hearted misogynists! That word dates back to 1620: Swetnam Arraigned I. ii. sig. A 4, [Mysogenos loq.] Swetnams name, Will be more terrible in womens eares, Then euer yet Misogenysts hath beene.

  • One Yield Regular

    I’m sorry, I couldn’t hear you. I have Obama’s appointment of a domestic violence “czar” to the White House, his role as chief sponsor of the Victim’s Economic Security and Safety Act, and his co-authorship of the most recent reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act stuck in my ear.

  • problemwithcaring

    [re=455795]m_supercomputer[/re]: PUMAs aren’t innovators, just lazy racists. In her mind, of course the Prez should have the same personal relationship with Henry Gates as he would the equally brown-skinned Rihanna.

    Ignored Rhianna? If you call smacking her around ignoring her. Chris Brown was covering for Obama. Future Secretary of Health and Human Services Chris Brown, that is.

  • DustBowlBlues

    Couldn’t care less, Amy, not “could care less.” Commonly made mistake, but when done under the masthead of the esteemed Tina Brown, unforgivable. Then again, I couldn’t care less about the Daily Beast.

    I take it that Amy’s white. White people tend to assume that all the negroes are “down with the ghetto” or however clueless white people would phrase it.

  • Mr Blifil

    Ha haha stoopid abortion rights supporters, believing Barry gives a shit about them! Now they see him for the two-face he is and they will not rest until he is aborted from the White House. After which time they shall finally see the wisdom of conservatism and shut up and have their filthy abortions arranged privately, just like their betters do.

  • AddHomonym

    FAIL. Amy forgot to add that even his dog is a boy.

  • kth

    PUMA. (No Quarter was the pro-Hillary/anti-Obama blog that staked its reputation on the Whitey tape. And crapped out)

  • SemiCharmedQuark

    The Daily Beast must have a ceiling IQ for its contributors. The dumbest shit is always from Daily Beast. (You might have thought it was Red State. But that guy’s a genius).

  • SemiCharmedQuark

    Also, if Obama really cared about women, he’d make the cable guy come between 12 and 2, not whenever the f**k he feels like.

    Srsly, Obama needs to give a conference on this right now!!11!

  • LowerdPeninsula

    1. The comparison by Siskind is absolutely ridiculous. But, is that any surprise?

    2. On the point of Obama caring what his supporters think, she’s dead on, unfortunately. The whole “this is a health bill, not an abortion bill” really blew my mind. Even the most leery Democrat wouldn’t say something so stupid, that is disconnecting reproductive health from the greater issue of health care. He said a stupid thing, and he’s said them many times before, unfortunately.
