Wingnuts Furious: Obama Hugged A White Gal

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

inpeach

Do you see that picture, above, of Barack Hussein NOoBaMA hugging a white woman who saved her friend’s life in the Aurora massacre? Yes, Stephanie Davies stayed with her friend Allie Young, who’d been shot in the neck, and kept applying pressure to the wound even after her friend told her to run. What do you suppose the wingnuts have to say about Barack Obama going to visit wounded people in the hospital? Do you suppose they have an opinion? We bet they are all saying, “oh, that’s nice, Barack Obama went to the hospital and made some people feel better,” we bet that is what they are probably saying. They could even have made a joke, like, guess he didn’t need 110 fundraisers in six months har har. Sure, they could have said that! Let us find out the answer to this important question, after the jump!

Oh right. We forgot. [WeaselZippers]

    God, there is nothing he can do that isn't 'for politics' or against America or for abortion or aaaaaARRRRRGGGGHHHHH!

    • HistoriCat

      You have obviously forgotten that he is a blah in the White House!

      Impeach!

      • http://wonkette.com/ weejee

        Obviously commits the sacrilege of putting beans in his chilli, too also.

        • Gurkman

          He probably also thinks hard taco shells are OK and it's alright to put sauce on pasta while the noodles are still hot to avoid having to heat the sauce up.

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

          NEVAH FORGET Teh Mustard.

    • Madfall

      And yet if he'd stayed away he would have got criticized for that too.

      • tessiee

        Some ass on facebook (I think they should just give up and call it assbook) was whining that the President *didn't* take a vacation this year. Apparently, that was nothing more than a cynical ploy for votes.

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

          ohgod are you fucking kidding me. I think I just plotzed.

  • Barb_

    The funniest thing is how lovely and healthy the lady in the bed looks despite some of her lifesaving machinery being moved out to make room for Barry's teleprompter.

    • Chichikovovich

      They plugged the teleprompter feed in to the screen that's normally the vital signs monitor.

      • Barb_

        Mitt should show up to the maternity ward and kiss some babies. I'd love to watch footage of a nurse handing a baby to Ann and watching her try to hand it off to the nanny that won't be there. "Oh shit, what do I do with this kid?"

        • AbandonHope

          More like "What is this thing? It is too small to be a horse." I'd imagine that, from birth to about teenage years, Ann didn't see hide nor hair of her children.

          • Barb_

            Thanks for the horse/baby reference. Like we need another FLOTUS who is trying to shove carrots into us. Wait, there could be the occasional sugar cube. Romney/Other White Boring Rich Guy 2012!

          • ibwilliamsi

            Horses are better. You don't have to cream the carrots, and no dirty dishes for the maid.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            I thought it was the maid's job to, uh, cream the carrots … brb.

          • tessiee

            "another FLOTUS who is trying to shove carrots into us"

            O_o
            Um, Barb… Is there something you want to tell us?

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            Now I'm worried.

          • tessiee

            "I'd imagine that, from birth to about teenage years, Ann didn't see hide nor hair of her children."

            The servants brought them out all cleaned up once a day for the parents and any guests to admire, then brought them back to wherever it is they keep them.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            Here's the funny thing: that's exactly how I was raised. All the childcare was left to the servants. Once a day, when Mummy and Daddy returned from wherever they were, we were washed and propped up with bows in our hair and shoes on our feet, and expected to recite our poems and play our music and dance our dances for the amusement of our parents. The rest of the time, we were being picked on mercilessly by the servants who really resented having to leave their own kids at home to take care of us.

          • Fare la Volpe

            You have the most fascinating past. Was your step mother a singing Austrian nun?

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            My people do not believe in divorce, and my mother was not a good person, so I never had a stepmother.

            But you have no idea how exotic you all seem to me.

          • vtxmcrider

            And yet you are completely at home here, as sick and twisted as the rest of us. So your life has been very successful.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            Why, thank you. I feel honoured.

            I suspect I could probably pass for an American over the InterToobz, you know, no accent in the written word. But then the cultural references come out and I am lost at sea.

      • Barb_

        Shh Chet, it's scaring the crap out of me, seriously. It feels like the first day of school and I can't wait to get to fourth period to see who I can sit with in the cafeteria. God, I hope my mom remembered to take the cellophane off the freaking cheese on my sammich this time.

        • HistoriCat

          You got to sit with people at lunch?? Lucky!

          Your underscore is very dainty, like drinking tea with your pinky out!

        • Terry

          My dear sainted mother learned to cook from Julia Child's cooking shows on public television. Until she'd seen a sufficient number of episodes, however, there were disasters. Like the day she sent Dad to work with a sandwich made with the picture of the baloney* rather than the baloney itself.

          * – For the youngsters out there. Baloney used to come in a stack with a piece of cardboard on either end. On the outer side of the cardboard was an image of delicious looking baloney that looked little or nothing like what you saw when you unwrapped the actual baloney.

          • Geminisunmars

            Well, it probably was healthier for him, at least.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            My mother *never* learned to cook. Fortunately, Dad loved his kids, and to spare us Mum's experiments, he rose manfully to the challenge.

        • finallyhappy

          Phyllis- is that you? Although I think that was a frozen sandwich your mom pre made, heated up and the plastic melted into the bread and cheese

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        A rapidly-inflating p-ness is a reliable sign of good things to come.

    • kittensdontlie

      The scene is definitely staged. That same set was on a rerun of ER last week.

      • HistoriCat

        Oh great – coming to a RWNJ comment near you soon.

    • bikerlaureate

      I laughed.

    • HogeyeGrex

      Somehow, the part that says "with my tongue" seems to have gotten cropped off.

  • MacRaith

    Even worse – he was probably breathing. The nerve of him, standing there using oxygen that rightfully belongs to other people!

    • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

      White people.

      • MacRaith

        Yeah, but you have to speak in code, so you have plausible deniability when you get called out for racism.

        • Chichikovovich

          Exactly. You have to say "people who breathe the way the Founding Fathers did."

    • extreme_left

      it's in the constituton!

  • eggsacklywright

    And they gave him 6000 rounds of applause.

    • Guppy

      with votes!

  • Goonemeritus

    I don’t know about you but this reinforces my commitment to drive dozens of illegal aliens to the polls to vote for Barry.

    • Dr_Zoidberg

      Don't forget the fake IDs!

    • Chichikovovich

      By the way – when we have all those dead people vote, we don't actually have to dig them up do we? Gross.

      The instructions from the DNC were a bit unclear on that point.

      • Goonemeritus

        Just down load the “so you want to steal this election too” I-phone app from the George Soros web site.

      • BerkeleyBear

        No digging. In fact, the Chicago tradition is to do as little as possible to acknowledge the person's death (keep on a few credit lists, have someone keep cashing those Social Security checks). I'm sure your local ward boss will give you a list along with your walking around money for getting your stand-ins to the polls for the second and third times.

  • PeaceWithHonor

    Shit, this country has really gone off the deep end since Emmett Till.

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

    • thatsitfortheother1

      Don't give them any ideas.

      • prommie

        Give them the idea? Hell, its been their obsession for 3 and a half years. The Tea Party ain't nothing but a lynch mob going incognito. Give me credit when you quote me now.

        • thatsitfortheother1

          I'm unsuccessfully trying to act like you are not 100% correct.

        • FakaktaSouth

          Aight, I have a small problem with this analogy. Have you seen the fat-ass bloated tick-types that make up the tea party? You think one of them old fucks could hoist anything into a tree? seriously?

          • prommie

            Nah but they'd be the ones to stand around and watch and pose for pictures with the body afterwards.

          • HistoriCat

            I just assumed that's why you had so many of them – they just all grab onto the rope and share the burden. Which, now that I've written it, sounds suspiciously like Socializm …

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            They have a *rich* fantasy life, in between gunning down mentally ill attackers under conditions that would have Seal Team Six worried, single-handedly defending the nation from Brown People and the "honour" of their equally bloated fat-ass spouses from various knee-grows, and seeing Commies under every bed and Nutzis in every white house.

    • FakaktaSouth

      She looks really sad about it too. She looks like she wants to grab his butt.

      You know it would have been grosser if he had used one of the people who died as a prop like CNN and the rest did allllll weekend.

      • prommie

        I am glad I missed that shit.

      • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Fraudulently_Joe

    • prommie

      Now Huffpost is for shit I know it, but they have a story that says 3 men died laying on top of their girlfriends to shield them from the shooting. Thats just so tragically tragic in a Romeo and Juliet-y way. Or else they were just trying to get one last quick one in, you never know.

      • BigSkullF*ckingDog

        See? This is the problem with being a lady gay. I don't have 200+ lbs of man-meat to hide behind during a shooting. Gonna have to find me a fat chick.

        • FakaktaSouth

          I can say with complete certainty though, there is nothing worse than a little dude with little dude syndrome – and I envy your not having to deal with THAT shit ever. But, if you don't wanna get shot, just, ya know, always be packing, I am sure you have perfect aim when panicking in the dark like all the Republicans must.

        • prommie

          Its just the selfish genes, you know. If they've been bonking, then there is a chance the lady is knocked up, and therefore the man's genes will carry on in the offspring. So, in the situation presented, the strategy most likely to result in the survival of the man's genes, is for him to sacrifice himself and save the possibly preggers lady.

          Long story short, the fat chick won't have that instinct to save you.

          Or else maybe its just love, which would be nice, wouldn't it?

    So, according to this moron Obama should have refused to visit the victims, because it's apparently somehow political. And if he had I'm sure the exact same person wouldn't be screaming "NOBama won't visit shooting victims, doesn't care about them!1!!"

    Well, WZ seems to be on its way to becoming the next go-to news resource. Catching up to Drudge?

    Of course, it's the comments that really make the site. Insightful comments like, "I don't remember GWB publishing pictures like this" are just the thing a vibrant political site needs.

    • SorosBot

      I don't remember him publishing pictures like this either, probably because W had no empathy and didn't give a shit about the actual victims of tragedies, even as he politically milked the big one for all it was worth.

      • BerkeleyBear

        You joke, but supposedly W is something of a germaphobe. There are stories about him rushing to use hand sanitizer after meeting Obama and others, and wiping his hands on Bill Clinton in Haiti. If he's that freaked out by (relatively) healthy people, I can only wonder what hospitals do to him.

        Which should have been yet another reason to let him nowhere near decisions about other people's health or lives. And definitely is a red flag about the similarly non-empathic Romney.

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

        I haven't forgotten his last visit to wounded troops, wherein he regaled them with the story of the terrible injuries he had suffered while clearing brush.

    • tessiee

      "I don't remember GWB publishing pictures like this"

      We never saw pictures of the little prick doing anything like this because he never did anything like this. He was too lazy, too selfish, and too afraid of catching poor people cooties.

        It's very rare that Wonkette has to go beyond the U.S. House of Representatives to find this sort of drivel. (Or state legislatures, if you're really digging for the nasty stuff.) I'm guessing this was sent in as a "tip" by an overheated Wonker.

      I despised Bush for things he had actually done, like the killing of over one million Iraqis, Afghanis, and Pakistanis; the privatization of Walter Reed that allowed serving military to lie in pools of their own piss under mold-covered walls; the refusal to provide those same troops with working body armour; the award of no-bid contracts for military support to KBR, which proceeded to poison those troops with contaminated food and water, and electrocute them with shoddily designed and fabricated buildings; the death of 4,000 Americans and the maiming of 15,000 more in an unnecessary war; the destruction of the economy; the deaths of 3,000 civilians in an avoidable enemy attack; the outsourcing of millions of American jobs. Obama has done some things I am very unhappy about, a lot of things I'm OK with, and a few things that have benefited EVERY FUCKING BODY. There is no comparison between the two. There is no reason for rightwingers to react to the current President this way. They know it as well as we do, and that is why they become more and more unhinged with each word they say.

Sure, it's gross when a politician uses a human as a "political prop" but when mama's little doorstop was wheeled out for us as a constant reminder of Lou Sarah's "compassion" he wasn't being used as a political prop or as a shield for when Palin is called a cruel, manipulative super-grifter bitch. Just like the time Bush "spoke" to Iraq soldiers who were told in advance what questions they could ask and what answers Dubya would give. But nope, those weren't examples of using people as political props or anything…not at all.
