Wingnuts To Be Furious After Rappers Pose In Situation Room

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

We’re not sure if the AOL-email-chain-level wingnuts are furious about this yet, but they will be for about six months. That’s Jay-Z and the Beyonce lady with friends posing in the White House Situation Room the other day, just cold launchin’ nukes at white cities. The Weekly Standard is sounding the wingnut alarm.

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

  • The Huffington Pogue

    A little part of me died when I realized the Situation Room neither looks like it does on The West Wing . . . nor has holograms like the one on CNN.

  • tiny mexican

    Feeling it coming in the air
    Hear the screams for free healthcare
    Bipartisanship on the Hill
    It’s a dangerous love affair
    Can’t be scared when whip count’s down
    Got a problem tell me now
    Only thing that’s on my mind
    Is who’s gon’ write this bill tonight

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Well, at least nobody’s got their damn muddy boots on the table.

  • jetjaguar

    Well, since they’re there, why not hear them out?

  • Harvey Birdman

    So that’s how Autotune died.

  • Cicada

    That’s nothing. Wait ’til they get a load of 50 Cent knocking back a 40 in the Lincoln bedroom.

    The Negroes are taking over, ZOMG!!! Hide the women and children!!!11!

  • Tommmcatt

    Hey, I am the biggest fag ever, but let me tell you, Beyonce gets to pose wherever the hell she wants. She’s just that hot.

  • Marlowe

    This was written by John McCormack, the second man (along with Paul Johnson) with clenched hair.

  • snideinplainsight

    Call me when Mary J. Blige shows up –

  • Extemporanus

    Where da white…oh, wait, there she is.

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    I assume this means that Schlitz Malt Liquor is about to be made the national drink & there will officially be a Watermelon Day?? Run for your lives, whitey!

  • Come here a minute

    Hey BeyoncĂ© lady, what’s your sitch?

  • BlueStateLiberal

    Meh. Needs more Ices Cube and T.

    [re=525471]Tommmcatt[/re]: Roscoe, atlas, and I would respectfully beg to differ. Now excuse me while I whip this out…

  • memzilla

    So the Weekly Stantard call it a “breach of decorum,” which is what they called it when the first black congressman was seated in the House back in the 1870s. At least they’re consistent.

  • PlanetWingnuta

    03/05/2010 NEVAR FERGIT!!!!!!!11111

  • PlanetWingnuta

    Oh and one more that just popped in my mind after submitting…

    TODAY WE ARE ALL SASHA FIERCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • JMP

    Of course this is a horrible, horrible breach of decorum according to the conservatives. Now in half an hour people will dig up photos of Bush admin doing the same thing, only probably with country singers and Larry the Cable Guy.

    Besides, I heard the Reagan people let one famous actor, a drooling idiot to boot, into situation room all the time.

  • Extemporanus

    It’s nice to see that Skee-Lo and Young MC have finally quashed their beef.

  • Gorillionaire

    Beyonce can go nuclear with me anytime. ANYTIME.

  • SmutBoffin


  • nappyduggs

    “Operation: Fire on the Plantation” is officially underway.

  • SmutBoffin

    [re=525471]Tommmcatt[/re]: The face that launched 1000 ICBMs…

  • Norbert

    General “Buck” Turgidson: Sir, you can’t let him in here. He’ll see everything. He’ll see the big board!

  • assistant/atlas

    This reminds me: I would vote for Jay-Z for President.

    Jay-Z/Mos Def 2016!

  • magic titty

    There hasn’t been this many black people at The White House since they built it.

  • Joshua Norton

    [re=525470]Cicada[/re]: The Negroes have always run the White House. The only difference is now they can use the front door.

  • SayItWithWookies

    “Tell the president of Whiteystan that if they don’t disclose their stocks of Wonder Bread and Leno reruns that they’ll be in violation of the UN resolution.”

  • Buzz Feedback

    Look at all the blackz!

  • WhatTheHeck

    Hey, was Beyonce debriefed before she was allowed in the Situ… oh wait, she doesn’t wear any.

  • germansteel

    They changed the official language to Negro Dialect about 13 1/2 months ago, too.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    [re=525503]magic titty[/re]: Hahahahaha. WIN.

  • 4tehlulz

    I for one am disappointed that The Situation is not in The Situation Room.

  • Mr Blifil

    MC Steele, upon hearing of his exclusion, put on his nicest suit and headed for the Pentagon lobby.

  • Cicada

    [re=525505]Joshua Norton[/re]: True enough. Of course, that little difference is all it takes to turn a certain portion of our population into raving teabaggers. It’s like gamma rays for wingtards!

  • Cape Clod

    [re=525456]The Huffington Pogue[/re]: That’s the fucking Situation Room? Did they take all the cool shit out because the were afraid that W was going to break stuff?

  • Baldar T Flagass

    And in keeping with the spirit of the air traffic controller at JFK, the Prez let Jay-Z call in a Predator strike on a wedding party outside of Peshawar.

  • Prommie

    This is exactly what they were saying before the election, you elect one of them darkies, next thing you know, they’re barbecuing chicken in the rose garden and selling crack out the b ack door. Presidential limo up on blocks in the front yard, nappy-headed porch monkeys playing in the dirt with no drawers on, you know the scene.

  • JMP

    [re=525522]Cape Clod[/re]: Yeah, if movies and TV have taught me anything, there should be giant 3D maps with miniatures representing US and enemy forces, along with multiple giant TV screens the President uses to talk with foreign heads of state and supervillains trying to blackmail the US with their superweapons.

  • Tundra Grifter

    [re=525501]Norbert[/re]: President: “Gentlemen! You can’t fight in here! This is the WAR ROOM!”

  • Prommie

    On the other hand, this ain’t shit; Obama coulda let them all take a joyride in a nuclear submarine and sink a Japanese school ship, just for shits and giggles.

  • nappyduggs

    [re=525503]magic titty[/re]:
    And you know this, MAN!

  • BlueStateLiberal

    [re=525522]Cape Clod[/re]: Yeah, I was surpised myself. If this was a Hollywood movie, there’d be huge flat screen TVs and huge blinking, buzzing mainframe computers all over the place. How boring.

  • Autoo

    [re=525518]4tehlulz[/re]: There’s probably some Timbalands, though. (Under the table)

  • Jerri

    [re=525456]The Huffington Pogue[/re]: No kidding! It just looks like a finished basement of a home in a moderately well-to-do suburb.

  • Joshua Norton

    [re=525531]JMP[/re]: Sounds like last night NCIS rerun.

  • Tundra Grifter

    The real news here is that The Weekly Standard is still being published. How much does it take in wing nutz’ contributions to keep that rag afloat?

    Years ago William F. Buckley wrote me and asked me to send him money so The National Review could stick around. I wrote him back and said I am a capitalist and I think publications should survive on their own merits in the marketplace of ideas. Never did hear from him again…

  • grevillea

    [re=525531]JMP[/re]: That shit looks more like some cut-rate airport hotel “convention center”.

  • comicbookguy

    [re=525529]Prommie[/re]: That’s where they were wrong. You gotta go round the side of the white house, shout up to the third floor window, and put your money in the bucket they lower down.

  • Extemporanus

    [re=525518]4tehlulz[/re]: And, for that matter, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince.

    “Oh-kay, here’s the situation, my prezdint went away on a week’s vacation…”

    Heeeeeeey, nice (I)raq!

  • Capitol Hillbilly

    Where is Luther Campbell?

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    When Reagan was President, he never let well dressed people into the White House. Why can’t Obama respect tradition?

  • bago

    [re=525486]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: Not going to go Vanilla?

  • McDuff

    Not being hip to the current music “scene,” upon seeing that picture, I would have assumed these nicely-dressed young people are associates at some large law firm or maybe Congressional aides — you know, the real scary people in DC.

  • TVarmy

    I nominate an Extreme Makeover: White House Edition to make 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. more modern and eco friendly. With Sear’s products, it’s bound to be easy!

  • Hart88

    Is there anything these bastards won’t whine about? For shit’s sake, if not for the Presidential seal on the wall, this could be a conference room anywhere in the world.

    Honestly, just STFU and put your goddamned hoods back on.

  • Radiotherapy

    Isn’t there some kind of karma here? Who could forget that OTP furry POS from the other day? Doesn’t this balance the scales a little bit?

  • Pandy

    [re=525680]Radiotherapy[/re]: That’s what I’m thinking. What goes around….

  • Fox News Light

    Why the HELL is there a BLACK MAN in the presidents seat?????!????

  • Magnus Maximus

    Guys, that Beyonce is hot! I would not kick her out of my futon, or my studio apartment!

  • lemprika

    Clearly they were listening to the Parliment CC album.

  • problemwithcaring

    Are we sure these people are real Hip Hop? I mean, where is Chairman Steele??

  • El Pinche

    You can almost see Jeff Gannon’s buttcheek marks right where Nas is sitting .

  • S.Luggo

    Needs more Haitians.

  • El Pinche

    [re=525720]Magnus Maximus[/re]: The guys at The Weekly Retard think Shakira is icky, too.

  • S.Luggo

    I’m waiting for Limbaugh to say that the picture reminds him of …

  • Beanball

    [re=525640]McDuff[/re]: I think it speaks volumes that these nicely dressed people are, in fact, nicely dressed, thus showing respect to The Man as well as The People’s House, unlike some jerkwads I could name. Having visited the White House several times myself, I have often been repulsed by the tourists dressed like white trash.

    Cudios to the Krew.
