greatest day of tucker's life

Brave Daily Caller Muckraker Exercises His Freedom To Troll

Well, Ol’ Barry Obama went out to the Rose Garden to speechify his new plan to kill all white children and let Mexican children have their homes, and then this guy, Neil Munro of Tucker Carlson’s treasured Daily Caller, interrupts him to start babbling something. Obama hates this person but responds anyway. Now people are all yelling at the Daily Caller for its classlessness, how this will hurt its “reputation,” etc. etc. Oh, please. This was a great PR thing that Tucker Carlson did for his little website and your ethical rebukes will only make him happier. Pure bad faith, baby, that’s how we roll in the Greatest Country In The History Of The World these days.

He’ll get a wider audience and Neil Munro will catapult to instant wingnut fame and be on all the teevee shows. It was a successful move for Tucker Carlson’s business — trolling the president with nonsense just to get attention — and criticizing him as a very poor journalist indeed! is a waste of one’s time. All political media is bullshit and campaign “journalism” doesn’t exist and everyone’s responsible for it, and so of course there’s a troll. He’s made it big now. Maybe he’ll land a reality show someday down the road. Mothers, raise your kids to be shits, because there’s money yet to wring out of this country.

UPDATE: Wow, this guy should be the official goddamn mascot of DC, the way he just throws out easily disprovable lies without hesitation. Every reporter sitting around him has said that there was absolutely no indication that Obama was wrapping up his speech when Munro began trolling him.

“I always go to the White House prepared with questions for our president. I timed the question believing the president was closing his remarks, because naturally I have no intention of interrupting the President of the United States. I know he rarely takes questions before walking away from the podium. When I asked the question as he finished his speech, he turned his back on the many reporters, and walked away while I and at least one other reporter asked questions.”

So, Tucker, your reporter is either (a) a blatant liar when he says he had no intention of interrupting the president and thought the speech had ended or (b) such a stupid, incompetent employee that he can’t tell when a presidential speech he’s covering is ending (especially since prepared remarks are usually distributed beforehand). What is your reporter, Tucker? Is he a liar, or is he stupid? If only you could have one of each.

      I gotta ask. Has anyone impressed Jodie Foster? That would be my interview question for Ms. Foster if I ever got the chance.

    2. Doktor Zoom

      (during the credits to The Cave Dwellers):

      Crow: Oh, hey, Lisa Foster is in this.

      Servo: Jodie's sister?

      Crow: I'd shoot Donald Regan to prove my love for Lisa Foster.

    1. Native_of_SL_UT

      IRS Hell, Didn't these shits learn from Brietbart what happens when you piss the President off.

  1. Nostrildamus

    All I hear besides Obama is tweet, tweet, tweet. Is Tucker hiring birds these days?

    1. BornInATrailer

      Throat-stabby might just satisfy it. They go together like peanut butter and chocolate.

    2. Not_So_Much

      Who could've ever guessed that one of his minions would be a complete douchecanoe?

  2. SexySmurf

    Remember, during the Bush Administration, when the gay prostitutes were more polite?

    Pepperidge Farm remembers.

    1. RavenRant

      I do not understand why that story just vanished. Never found out who approved 200 White House day press passes for a criminal using an alias.

  3. Chet Kincaid

    Newell, you are turning into a media-savvy/sickened, less-naive version of Layne. You are starting to depress me as much as the unfiltered news, which I come here to absorb while avoiding it. Save your sanity, leave this site to the Editrixes!! (Kidding, don't go away. You're right, this is some bullshit.)

    1. BlueStateLibel

      Yeah, I'm getting the same impression about Jim. I think a good Peggy Noonington bit on a Friday afternoon would do him a world of good. And me, and everyone else here.

    2. anniegetyerfun

      There is no way that Jim could ever bring me down the way Ken did. Jim, for instance, doesn't usually end every post with something about the irrelevance of the issue at hand, given the coming apocalypse.

      1. Chet Kincaid

        Yeah, you could always count on Layne to paint a stark vision of mile after mile of decrepit McMansions in the desert, populated by feral children and mountain lions, with some video by William S. Burroughs appended at the end to really make you swallow all of your ambien at once.

    3. sati_demise

      did you ever think it may be the news, not the messenger, that is an insane depressing mess?

    1. Steverino247

      More like "broke wind." Boorish behavior and asking "Have you stopped beating your wife" type questions is not journalism.

  4. Joshua Norton

    This was a great PR thing that Tucker Carlson did for his little website

    Them that can, do.
    Them that can't, teach.
    Them that can't teach, administer.
    Them that can't administer, do PR.
    Them that can't do PR, do PR

    1. glamourdammerung

      By now he's posing for shots with Joe the Plumber

      Is that a slang term for some kind of unspeakable sex act?

  5. WhatTheHeck

    Was the heckler recently escaped from a Washington aviary? His warbling really gave the president a scare. Oh wait. That was that other bird brain.

  6. Grief_Lessons

    Back in the day, the secret service would have converted him into a potted plant before the POTUS was even bothered.

  7. GortRay

    Some day this douchebag Munro will be on Big Brother and Octomom will shoot babies at him while he gets raw-dogged by Gary Busey. (I can dream can't I?)

  8. Fairtackle

    "Mothers, raise your kids to be shits, because there’s money yet to wring out of this country."

    Near as I can tell, this is what the code words "liberty" and "freedom" are referring to in teabagger speak.

    1. Grief_Lessons

      Or a fucking microwave fucking popcorn company. It's a long story, but I feel strongly about it…

      1. stroge

        Osgood is a legend, and only the face, he's not the one running the show over at Sunday Morning. Tuck-face is the EIC at TDC… ugh, I just don't get how these assbags get people to read their stuff… and for Barry to respond to that guy would be like Barry responding to Joan Rivers (or her bat-shit crazy daughter) calling out a question regarding what kind of suit he was wearing – same amount of newsworthiness. i fucking hate conservatives.

  9. SheriffRoscoe

    So, "Daily Caller" popped the cherry on interrupting the prez during official statements. Just cold popped the cherry. Innocence LOST man.

  10. elviouslyqueer

    I would say that this was a dick move by Neil Munro. Only this presumes that a) Neil Munro has a dick and b) said dick wasn't firmly entrenched in Tucker's sphincter.

  11. Callyson

    "It is the right thing to do for the American people and here's why…"

    Because it pisses off that jerk from the Daily Caller. Works for me…

  12. prommie

    They never promised bammerz a heckler-free rose garden. Obama shoulda said "I'm working here, I don't come to where you work and knock the dicks out of your mouth."

  13. gullywompr

    Couldn't hear his "question" but I presume it was something along the lines of "Hey M-F'er, bring me another iced tea!"

  14. PhilippePetain

    I sure am glad these Republicans have returned the dignity to the office of the President after all of that Clinton stuff, like they had been crowing about doing for years.

    1. anniegetyerfun

      *Only applies when a Republican holds the White House, and only directly in reference to giving/receiving oral sexytimes in the Oval Office.

      1. PhilippePetain

        It's great. There is a guy in office that is by all accounts a good family man, sounds educated, acts dignified, and no, what they want back is George fucking Bush.

  15. TribecaMike

    IWW — Interrupting While White — has been established common law since the signing of the Magna Carta.

  16. owhatever

    Lincoln: Four score and seven years ago…
    Daily Caller: Hey, which side are you on?

  17. anniegetyerfun

    Do you remember when people (press people, not normal folks) didn't think it was OK to just fucking shout shit out while the POTUS is speaking? I think it might have been back when the President wasn't a black man, but I remember it.

    1. sullivanst

      I recall it well. It was when the President wasn't just not black, but indeed lily white.

    1. BarackMyWorld

      Another innovation Mitt Romney has brought to our political discourse: the ability to contradict recorded events and statements.

      1. anniegetyerfun

        “So what happened was, I was just SITTING there in the Rose Garden, minding my own business, when the black President points to me and says, “You! Yeah, you, you fucking mick. Why do you look so goddamn PLEASED with yourself?!” I tried to ask him what he meant, but then the black President himself tased me and kicked me right in the ribs. I'm sure it's all on tape, you can probably catch it on CNN. That's what happened.”

  18. BarackMyWorld

    There was more suspense and dramatic tension in that short youtube clip than 2 hours of Prometheus.

    In space, no one can hear you yawn.

  19. CommieLibunatic

    Troll, you're acting like that borderline Asperger's 12-year-old relative that ceaselessly peppered me with Minecraft FAQs all weekend. But unlike that kid, I could justifiably split your skull open and feast upon the delicious candy secreted within.

      1. CommieLibunatic

        And to make things worse, he makes me appreciate my similarly aged niece who learned her Netiquette from the trade channel in World of Warcraft (i.e. UR A FAGIT HURR DURR). She can't Google her way out of a paper bag, but she at least gets the hint when I'm waxing murderous.

        1. Steverino247

          There's not enough "Ignore" in the World of Warcraft for the Trade Channel trolls. I never did understand the point of paying $15 a month to tell Chuck Norris jokes, call people "FAGITS" and all the other stupid shit those people do. Fortunately, you can report spam better these days…

  20. anniegetyerfun

    At the end of his remarks, however, Obama returned to Munro, who was standing in the press corps area of the manicured lawn outside the West Wing. “Why do you favor foreigners over American workers?” Munro asked, according to an account from the Associated Press.

    Munro reportedly yelled out that he [Munro] was an immigrant and walked away.

    Carlson added that he would give Munro a raise if the publication could afford it.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/daily-call

      1. anniegetyerfun

        There were some paragraphs in between. Basically, Munro yells, President stays calm, Tucker is pants-peeingly thrilled with his Irish protege and will pay him MORE money for being a fucking douchenozzle.

        1. BarackMyWorld

          No, its not the summary that doesn't make sense (though I did read the whole article), its Munro calling immigrants "foreigners" then randomly blurting out he's an immigrant himself.

          1. sati_demise

            This 'foreign' immigration used to promote peace love and understanding between the peoples of the Earth, but now not so much

    1. anniegetyerfun

      I'm sure that there are bathrooms where Tucker goes to beat off gay people.

      Oh, beat UP?

  21. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Doesn't the President know that it is proper respect to stop everything he is doing and answer "Sir, yes sir," when a white gentleman speaks to him?

    What has happened to manners in this country?

    1. anniegetyerfun

      "Boy, why do you hate white Americans so much? Answer me, boy, I'm talkin' to you!"

  22. Beetagger

    I generally oppose the way Putin handles press critics, but this guy deserves to have an "accident" in some dark alley.

  23. Doktor Zoom

    So show me where in the Constitution it says you can't interrupt the POTUS? Huh? Show me where! It's Freedom of speech, dammit, and no Muslin is gonna tell me that you can't interrupt the Presdint. Only Obama thinks he's better than the rest of us.

  24. AddHomonym

    Munro: Knock knock.
    Obama: Who's there?
    Munro: Interrupting reporter.
    Obama: Interrupting rep…
    Munro: Why do you favor foreigners over Americans?!

  25. cheetojeebus

    Where is Rosey Grier when you need him? or his cousin Pam, come to think of it, maybe I'd like to see Pam a little more.

  26. SmutBoffin

    Doesn't every President-y speech end with "God bless America"?

    WHY DIDNT OBAMARA ASK GOD TO BLESS AMERCIA SO'S THAT THE DAILY CALLER COULD TELL THE TALK-TALK WAS OVER

  27. DrunkIrishman

    Obama is a bigger man than I am. I would've taken that podium and chucked it at his pathetic Irish head. Then I would defecate in his mouth while talking about all the times I rammed his wife in the Oval Office.

    1. Native_of_SL_UT

      Actually Obama's deft moment of silence while staring daggers at the dickhead was much classier and effective. I spotted a little when I saw that stare.

      1. DrunkIrishman

        Well I'm not classy. I'm a sloppy drunk who's either passed out or posting on Wonkette.

  28. timbo71351

    Tucker Carlson has turned into Andrew Brietbart with a pulse.
    The sad thing is that bow-tied penis wrinkle would consider the previous statement to be a high compliment….

  29. DeathOfIrony

    I'm sorry, but there is something seriously wrong with our country. Folks seem to think they can do anything they want because the prez is a blah.

    Assholes. That's all, we're screwed….

  30. qwerty42

    I thought Munro was the Colonel commanding Fort William Henry and was killed by Magwa. Not so?

  31. Exhausted66

    Watch your back, Munro. This is the kind of thing that got Breitbart MURDERED!

    (by cholesterol.)

    1. Dr. Nick Riviera

      Obama murdered Breitbart with a long reaching plan to make whoppers delicious

  32. cognachas4paws

    If the fright wing brigade is going to accuse the President of being a thug anyway (as McConnell did today over Citizen's United), then maybe the President should just start acting like a thug and punching idiots like this guy in the teeth when they interrupt him.

    1. BerkeleyBear

      January 21, 2009 – Barry goes full gangsta in the first press availability of the second term. We're talking full posse of blinged out dudes around him, at least a few brandishing chromed weapons, women working portable stripper poles, and Barry rocking the mic freestyle then passing it to Snoop Dogg.

      The noise of heads assploding all over red state land would be deafening, and it would take months to clean up, but it would be worth it.

  33. Wonderthing

    They hate the nigger. (Which I use here for effect, not as a pejorative.) And their brains are blowing themselves up not being able to say it out loud. Frat boy? Huh. I doubt it. More like KKK Boy.

  34. Goonemeritus

    I love that our President has class even when faced with monumental disrespect. This doesn’t mean we as liberals need to be that classy. I would love to see Tucker trolled every time he speaks to an audience in any venue larger than a confessional. Come to think of it I wouldn’t mind it if a priest shouted him down in a confessional.

  35. didgen

    It is sad, I am sorry that my grandsons will grow up in a world where our own people have no respect for the office of the president. Especially since one of them will become the president.

  36. randcoolcatdaddy

    Conservatives … unafraid to look like impolite twits for the sake of cheap publicity.

  37. rocktonsam

    this disrespectful bullshit is getting old. I'm sure it will continue during the campaign since its just fine for supreme court justices and congressmen to act like immature assholes.

    I hated Bush jr and still do, but would never be disrespectful while he spoke.I could never understand him!

    The shoe throwing thing was pretty cool though.

  39. Gr8fulDude25

    Is this Munro a gay prostitute like Jeffrey Gannon, you know, the last right wing hack who somehow found his way into White House Press functions and embarass himself and his country by acting like a total douche? These Republicans really like their douchbags, and male prostitutes apparently.

  40. carlgt1

    why do these right-wing white-trash bloggers have White House press passes anyway? Is that more "bi-partisan" BS? It's not like the New Black Panthers were given a WH press pass during the Bush years…..
