So now Barack Obama thinks he can just lose the White House press corps whenever he feels like it, because he “needs his space” or “wants some uninterrupted family time” or whatever. This guy is not a patriotic real American, with his hatred of our nation’s most cherished traditions and his unseemly love for the Mexican sport called “soccer.”
From the U.S. Constitution:
The White House press corps traditionally travels with the president anywhere he goes, inside and outside the country, to report on the president’s activities for the benefit of informing the public and for historical record.
But America’s historian-journalists could not do their jobs and document the presidential whereabouts for posterity for a few hours yesterday, for the first time in YEARS, because Obama apparently does not care about reporters and their professional responsibilities, and just up and left the White House without them, which is Arrogant.
According to a White House spokesman named “Josh Earnest,” Obama ran off to watch one of his kids’ soccer games without getting permission from the press pool. So the reporters, they had to pile in “a van”, like Pedobear, and go hunt him down, how embarrassing. But when they got there, Professor Sneaky McTeleprompter was already gone! Was this all somehow just a cover for Al Qaeda’s new booty bomb? [New York Times/Associated Press]
