Beclowning is unbecoming for an American President. But for Barack Obama the clown suit fits fine. Our enemies are laughing; we are not.
The past week has seen the latest manifestation of the disgraceful way Barack Obama has acted as President. During an interview with Buzzfeed, Barack Obama mugged for the camera. His full narcissism was on display as our selfie-obsessed president became the first American president to use one of those selfie-sticks that have come to be increasingly banned in public spaces for their sheer obnoxiousness.
Other stills can be found at my previous blog, Obama the Fool. As video of this frivolous behavior, that includes the inability to dunk a cookie into a glass of milk, trying on shades, drawing a picture of Michelle, sticking his tongue out, tossing an air basketball-can be found here. Even the New York Times described such behavior as humiliating yet Obama joked about his behavior by saying “Yolo”-you only live once.
Tell that to the grieving parents of Kayla Mueller, the American who went to Syria to help refugees, but was kidnapped and murdered by Islamic extremists. The White House found out about this murder the day of the Buzzfeed interview but, hey, the show must go on. This display of narcissism and silliness also took place shortly after the video was released by that same group of the immolation meted out to a captured and caged Jordanian pilot and while our embassy in Yemen was falling to Iranian-backed militants and our military forces fled for their lives. Lest we forget, Barack Obama just a few months before had trumpeted Yemen as an example of the success of his strategy for dealing with terrorists he had dismissed as just being a Jayvee team. How true!
Has there ever been a tech toy more suited to a man than the selfie photo is to Barack Obama? He is obsessed with them to the point that his outré behavior may start giving them a bad name. Investors Business Daily was spot on-calling it selfie-indulgence. Indulgence and Barack Obama are a perfect match.
