Here’s a video from A.D. 2011 of President Obama mocking Donald Trump over the Obama birth certificate conspiracy, Celebrity Apprentice & his presidential ambitions. It’s hard not to like Obama. He’s funny. He’s stylish. He’s cool. You can see in this video much of the reason why he was twice elected to the presidency. Even if you hate Obama, you gotta admit he was hard to dislike. He truly was the “magic Negro”.
Obama is so cool, so funny in the previous video that it makes me wonder if Obama didn’t miss his true calling: hosting the Tonight Show on NBC.
But, the video is also ironic because Obama was so proud, so arrogant about finally having released a long-form birth certificate. But then, as people started to examine the birth certificate, evidence mounted that his birth certificate was a actually a fraud. (See articles like Obama Birth Certificate Forged and Obama’s Lawyers Officially Admit Birth Certificate is Fake.)
So, there was Obama, in that video, “at his best”–smiling, laughing, stylish, joking, grinning and cool. Almost irresistibly attractive to American voters. Looking America in the eye . . . and lying through his teeth.
Obama at his best. Great style. Little substance. Mostly lies.
Ohh, and incidentally, during Obama’s video performance, he made it a point to mock Donald Trump. I wonder if Trump holds grudges. I’ll bet he does.
I wonder if Obama’s mockery in A.D. 2011 helped motivate Trump to run again for President in A.D. 2015. If so, I wonder who’s laughing now.
