President Obama’s Last Press Conference of 2016

President Obama’s Last Press Conference of 2016

“I told Vladimir Putin to cut it out”

Friday, President Obama stood behind the podium for his last scheduled press conference of 2016.

Obama discussed Trump, Russia, and media treatment of Hillary in the most recent election.

We’ve compiled a few highlights:

Be deliberate! Says the man who refuses to call “terrorism” terrorism…

He’s not wrong, but why, I wonder, are we a nation so divided?

Who are these people and what’s wrong with them? I’ve never met a Putin-loving Republican in all my political work.

Was this before or after he counted to 3?

Because it’s Christmas, I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt that when he described Russia as “smaller” he wasn’t actually talking about comparative size:

If by not being treated fairly he means “was given a pass for criminal activity and strong-arming a party primary,” then ok. This would be an interesting discussion if it weren’t coming from the man who told Republicans to get to the back of the bus.

“Is the thing to say on this bright, Hawaiian Christmas Day”

“When you told Putin to ‘cut it out’, how long did it take for him to stop laughing?”

Just. Go. Away.

May I never have to hear another word from that pie hole.


I didn’t think it was possible, but Obama became a smaller man in office.

    Define “man”.

    As to why that might be, perhaps Karl Rove hit on something when he observed:
    “In his first 100 days, Mr. Obama has put the fate of his presidency in the hands of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. He may come to regret that decision.”

    One wonders, despite Obama’s bravado, whether this might not be so.

He looks shrunken and bitter.

    Yes, very bitter: “How dare these unwashed masses doubt my greatness! I’ll show them!”

    Mooch has the same attitude, as if they deserve homage of some sort, instead of being pelted with road apples.

May he live long enough to see full repeal and repudiation of everything he’s done.

Show me the evidence.

Just STFU and go away, Zero. You are a petty, narcissistic, small-minded lout. You’ve ensured your place in American History as the worst president ever, and for that Jimmy Carter owes you a boatload of gratitude ~

So this is what he meant by being ‘more flexible’ with Russia on that open mike comment. He managed to get his head stuck right up inside his…

Obama managed to be a worse President than Carter. His next achievement will be to be a worse former President than Carter. I’m willing to wager a lot of money that he’ll succeed.

@BarackObama: Over a third of GOP voters approve of Putin… the former head of the KGB… Ronald Reagan would roll over in his grave.

Actually Ronald Reagan rolled over in his grave when he found out you were elected dork. He knew you were a conniving, slimy, morally bankrupt SOB. And he said those were you better points.
Hurry up January 20th.

    How many democrats approve of Soros, a former Nazi?

    rdm in reply to 4fun. | December 17, 2016 at 6:32 am

    Didn’t mean to down rate you, was trying to hit reply. I would love to see the actual question in context of that approve of Putin bit. And also wonder how many would willingly just say that to a pollster to yank his chain. I know I might think about it.

      4fun in reply to rdm. | December 17, 2016 at 7:03 pm

      No problem rdm, can’t say I worry about likes or dislikes anyway.
      Any responses to what I write tells me the same thing.

“Now, I mean it, Vlad: Cut it out, or I will set a red line.”

“That oughta do it. Thanks very much, Ray.”

I hope he doesn’t pull out all the stops and put #BadPutin on Vlad.

Disenfranchised insiders have exposed the ugly underbelly of the DNC.

Mr. Obama, from Benghazi to Damascus to Kiev, end the progressive wars, close the abortion fields, stop immigration “reform”.

Do lies by the President of the United States count as “fake news”? Once he becomes a former President, will his lies count as “fake news”?

“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”

Barry and his lackeys set race relations and affirmative action back at least 50 years. It will take that long for our allies to again trust us. Don’t go away mad, just go away!

Obama: Russia is a “smaller and “weaker” country. “Their economy doesn’t produce anything that anybody wants to buy”
* Sounds just like Washington DC

Obama: I told Vladimir Putin to “cut it out”
* Putan replied: Sucka Miya Dika

Obama: I don’t think Hillary Clinton “was treated fairly during the election”
* Putan replied: Yes, she should have been shot for treason.

Obama’s been compared to Carter, but as a Heritage writer said a couple of years ago that’s an insult to Carter. Carter was much more pro-Democracy and hated dealing with anti-communist dictators, but finally started to see it as a necessary evil.

By the end of Carter’s Presidency he was finally beginning to see Russia for what it was and was at the point where he told them point blank if they got any closer to our resources in Gulf, they were risking war. To make that clear he sent more troops and set up what would later become CENTCOM, the force that protects US assets and allies in the mideast (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, UAE, etc).

OTOH Obama, unlike Carter, has learned nothing and forgotten nothing. He’s the kid who gets sand kicked in his face and then doesn’t send away for the Charles Atlas training course, but just goes back to the beach the next day for more sand.

“I told Vladimir Putin to cut it out”

Since he was wearing a French maid’s costume, had been making his jock boyfriends from Tehran to Moscow sammiches whenever and as soon as they demanded, and had fresh rugburns on his knees from the last time they drove him around the living room, somehow I am convinced this “cut it out” went over about as well as the last “cut it out” in this prison bitch relationship Obama has crafted with the world’s dictators.
