At the last-last-last public speech as president of the John Doe calling himself “Barack Obama,” the man who was illegally elected twice conjured up an alternate universe of press relations during his reign, in order to incite more media hatred against the man who legally elected, against whom the MSM sought to rig the election, and whom they began on the day after the election, to seek to run out of office, as they did Richard Nixon.
“You're not supposed to be sycophants, you're supposed to be skeptics, you're supposed to ask me tough questions. You're not supposed to be complimentary, but you're supposed to cast a critical eye on folks who hold enormous power and make sure that we are accountable to the people who sent us here, and you have done that.”
NPR Transcript, and ludicrous notes.
NPR tells us, among other pearls of dung, that a tan suit can be very controversial.
“Obama”: Good afternoon everybody. Let me start off by saying that I was sorely tempted to wear a tan suit today…
... for my last press conference.”
NPR: “This was something of an inside joke. In August 2014, President Obama gave a press conference where he talked about some weighty issues, including Syria and Ukraine. It’s the press conference where you might remember he said, “We don't have a strategy yet” when it came to Syria and whether he needed Congress’ approval to act.
But it was his choice of suit that made the Internet go nuts:”
No. The Internet did not “go nuts.” And if it had, what he said today would not have been an "inside joke."
What happened was that “Obama” showed himself to be incompetent in foreign affairs, and the MSM bailed him out, by frivolously changing the subject, to the color of his suit.
[Postscript, 11:49 p.m.] NPR’s David Folkenflik: “In his opening remarks, Obama directly addressed the reporters assembled for his final appearance, offering remarks of appreciation and respect. The tone was notable for the contrast it offers with the suspicion and at times contempt that the incoming Trump administration has expressed.”
As the saying goes, “A half-truth is a whole lie.” Folkenflik’s attitude is like that of a hostile bystander or cop who reacts to the rage of a mugging victim by criticizing the vic. It is the media which has shown hatred to Trump. There’d be something deeply wrong with Trump, if he did not show suspicion and contempt toward his media enemies, and such a wimpy would have caused him to lose the election. Folkenflik is projecting his own hatred onto Trump.
