what is this?

Robert Gibbs Now Reduced To Doing iChats With Random People

Robert, you've got a call on Skype.Okay, everybody despises the utterly useless “look at me!” transcriptionists who make up the White House Press Corps. But did the White House really need the drastic drop in dignity from the press room lectern to some crappy webcam on Robert Gibbs’ laptop? Also, why does his HAIR LOOK SO WEIRD? (Ha ha, there is a shallow WHCA-style comment if we ever saw one!) Anyway, now you too can have White House press credentials just like that gay prostitute Marine guy, what was his name? Jeff Gannon! Let’s all be Jeff Gannon now, from the tawdry comfort of our foreclosed homes.

The question is apparently about this Wikileaks thing, which is a website somewhere that totally destroyed America and its allies over the weekend, by posting some crap on a website. Never forget! [YouTube]

      are you sure that he's not playing 10 dimensional chess?

      • kenlayisalive

        Well, we can all contemplate how great he was when we are all transferred to Alaskan prison camps in 2013.

        • Negropolis

          Gulag's are for pussies. Sarah Palin's Wilderness Reeducation Centers of Alaska will be extreme/hardcore to the max.

            We will civilize ANWAR, only to pollute it's most natural polar bears.

  • MARCdMan

    I bet Jeff Gannon knows all about webcams.

  • el_donaldo

    Gibbs is doing chatroulette? Keep those pants on man. Nobody wants to see that.

  • horsedreamer_1

    Cum see Sexy Southerner Robert Gibbs on CamWithHim.com.

  • Crank_Tango

    Tits or GTFO.

    • horsedreamer_1

      That's extra.

  • charlesdegoal

    What do you expect? His pay's been frozen.

    In the still from the video it looks like Gibbs is about to strangle the laptop because he has to humiliate himself even more than usual.

    Gibbs' last answer was just lip service er had us in stitches was what just killed Leslie Nielsen.

  • MistaEko

    3 minute long video with funny reddish haired man, yet no interrupting 80s pop tune. I am disappoint.

  • Heq

    I am currently sitting and weeping, knowing that this is only the tip of the iceberg. Don't worry though, after they sack him it's only a hop skip and a jump to press secretary Meg McCain.

    Still better then Dana Perino.

  • ph7

    Nero didn't have wifi.

  • elviouslyqueer

    Judging from the length of Gibbsy's tie, he's either prepping for some hot autoerotic asphyxiation action, or he's getting ready to hang himself after telling the American public that no, for the 90th time, Barry is NOT a Muslim.

  • DahBoner

    Foreclosed homes ain't very comfy after you finish ripping all the copper wire out of the walls, crowbarring out all the sinks and applicances and pouring concrete down all the toilets and drains.

  • Progressiveinga

    Zip up your pants and wipe off your keyboard, Bobby! You'd never catch Salinger of Fitzwater doing that…..Gross!

    • V572625694

      But you could retroactively wish Perino had.

  • DoktorZoom

    (Insert teleprompter joke here)

  • SexySmurf

    Play him out, Keyboard Cat.

  • PublicLuxury

    That isn't his office! It is way too neat and organized to be his office. He's in a sucky showy conference room or the men's piss hole for chissake.

  • Sgt_Biyatch

    This was pretty poorly done, but even worse was that Gibbs wasn't wearing anything below the waist and was forced to answer questions on chatroullette while gently pleasuring himself.

    • mereoblivion

      Why gently, particularly? (Is there something I don't know? (I doubt it, sir, I doubt it.))

      • Sgt_Biyatch

        I don't think Gibbs would be "excited" to perform such a task. I imagine he'd be sporting a raging semi.

        • mereoblivion

          Eww. All too easy to picture.

  • mereoblivion

    Yeah, Beverly Hillbillies 90210.

  • kenlayisalive

    It's just like FDR's fireside chats … except that it is given by a pudgy doofus you long ago lost all respect for and it gets 196 youTube views.
