I’ve said before that President Obama could/should be a comedian. I’ve also said that since he’s in his second term and unable to run, President Obama doesn’t give a fu*k anymore. I mean he’s doing his job totally. But he’s trolling the right-wing conservative extremists/conspiracists HARD.
Along with calling himself a Kenyan-American, President Obama joked that he could win a third term if he ran again. Sadly, however, the Constitution does not allow that.
“I actually think I’m a pretty good President. I think if I ran, I could win. But I can’t. There’s a lot that I’d like to do to keep America moving. But the law is the law, and no person is above the law, not even the president.”
The African Union chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma introduced the president saying,
“Although we welcome you as President of the United States, we also claim you as our own.”
Do you hear that loud clicking and clacking? That is the sound of conspiracists running to their computers to type up their declarations of “I TOLD YOU SO!!!” on Facebook.
The joke was actually a criticism made in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia as he addressed the African Union on African leaders who do not give up their role as leader once a term ends (if one even exists). He also spoke about the rights of women and the nonexistence of democracy when members of the media are threatened and jailed for speaking out.
I’m looking forward to seeing what Facebook and Twitter can bring for entertainment!
