34. I'm confused...

 

How is it disrespectful to refer to the president by his first name? He's just a man, a public servant actually. I'm pretty sure we've all been calling the former president "W," "George," and "Junior" for the past decade. They're not kings or the Pope, they're elected officials, nothing to revere.
