Obama Trolls Ted Cruz So Hard With Canadian Birth Joke

During a state dinner Thursday evening with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, President Barack Obama got in a little jab at Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas)

During his toast, which was ripe with humor, Obama outlined that both the U.S. and Canada offered extraordinary opportunities for its citizens. Want proof? Obama said just look toward the 2016 Republican presidential contest.

"Where else could a boy born in Calgary run for president of the United States?" Obama asked in an allusion to Cruz whose eligibility to run for the White House has been called into question by Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.

Obama places blame for Trump on Republican Party and their inability to overcome their demagoguery

..................

President Barack Obama says Donald Trump's positions aren't different from those of the other Republican presidential candidates — he's just more provocative in talking about them.

Obama weighed in on the 2016 presidential campaign during a news conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (troo-DOH'). Obama says Trump's positions on immigration and other issues aren't that different from those of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz or Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

Obama calls the GOP primary a "circus" and a "Republican crackup" resulting from GOP actions. Obama says he takes responsibility for failing to bridge political divides, but says he has not contributed to the worsening tone of political rhetoric.

Obama says he believes the Democrats are doing a fine job of working out issues in their primary.

“If men found out how to give birth to children they’d never propose again.” - Bette Davis

I think men have got to change an awful lot. I think somehow they still prefer the little woman. They’re just staying way, way behind and so as a rule I think millions of women are very happy to be by themselves, they’re so bored with the whole business of trying to be the little woman, when no such thing really exists anymore. It just simply doesn’t. This world’s gone way beyond it. The real female should be partly male and the real male should be partly female anyway. So if you ever run into that in either sex you’ve run into something very, very fine, I think.

Charles Blow: Clinton is a force, but Sanders is a phenomenon.

The Michigan win put a new gust of wind into Sanders’s sails and strengthened his argument that he is a very real and viable alternative to Clinton — and that he shouldn’t feel one iota of pressure to leave the race before all the contests are finished.

Clinton is a force, but Sanders is a phenomenon. They both bring a seriousness and gravitas to the presidential discussion that is sorely lacking on the Republican side. In that, Democrats can take some pride regardless which of them wins the nomination, because either would probably soundly defeat the current Republican front-runner. According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released this week, both Clinton and Sanders would handily defeat the real estate developer in a general election matchup.

Two turds in a diaper don't smell better than one.

Conservatives seeking to derail Donald Trump are wondering: What if the contest weren’t one-on-one — what if it became two-on-one? In other words, what if rivals Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio teamed up and took on Trump together? Enter the unity ticket: Rubio drops out of the race, and Cruz promises to make Rubio his running mate. The pair then takes on Trump together.....

our president is such a showoff


A white man punches a black protester at a Trump rally and the police tackle the protester.



Rakeem Jones, the man who was hit, said the punch came out of nowhere.

“Boom, he caught me,” Jones told The Washington Post in a telephone interview. “After I get it, before I could even gain my thoughts, I’m on the ground getting escorted out. Now I’m waking up this morning looking at the news and seeing me getting hit again.”
