Obama On Clinton: PERSONAL INSULT If Black Voters Don't Support Her Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-09-17 at 11.35.26 PM(Video still via CNN)

President Obama gave a fiery speech tonight at a Congressional Black Caucus event in which he offered yet another full-throated endorsement of his onetime rival, onetime employee Hillary Clinton:

If I hear anybody saying their vote does not matter, that it doesn't matter who we elect—read up on your history. It matters. We've got to get people to vote. I will consider it a personal insult—an insult to my legacy—if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election. You want to give me a good send-off? Go vote.

That has to be his bluntest plea to date. He knows this election matters, and he knows that Hillary is not the lesser of two evils—but will Democratic voters get the message?

He also had sharp words for Donald Trump's assertion that there's never been a worse time to be black in America. Which, you know, duh:

He missed that whole civics lesson about slavery and Jim Crow.

At the same event, Hillary called out Trump's attempt to lay birtherism at her feet:

It’s not about golf course promotions or birth certificates. It comes down to who will fight for the forgotten. Who will invest in your children and who will really have your back in the White House. We need ideas, not insults, real plans to help struggling Americans, to help communities that have been left out and left behind. Not prejudice and paranoia. We can’t let Barack Obama’s legacy fall into the hands of someone who doesn’t understand that. Whose dangerous and divisive vision for our country will drag us backwards.

Trump: PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS BORN IN THE UNITED STATES, PERIOD (But Hillary Started Birtherism!!!) Comments (0)

After using a gathering of military veterans and media-friendly teasing to promote his latest hotel venture, Donald Trump on Friday finally admitted what every sane person has always known:

President Obama was born in the United States, period.

He made no apology, and in fact lays the blame at Hillary Clinton's feet—and there is ZERO evidence Hillary Clinton started that line of inquiry.

“Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. I finished it,” Trump said.

It makes me sad, but I think many people will accept his lie about Hillary. I hope she pushes back hard.

Trump Says Anderson Cooper Unfit To Serve As Debate Moderator Comments (0)

In a rather cunning move to set Anderson Cooper up to feel he must be nice to Trump to avoid being called biased, Trump has pre-emptively accused the CNN anchor of being beholden to Hillary Clinton—and says Cooper should not moderate a debate.

The remark came out of nowhere, but was no accident.

Gotta hand it to him—that was fucking smart.

Oh, and for good measure, he re-asserted that he isn't sure Obama was born in the U.S.A., so he hates black people, foreigners and also gay people (Cooper will be the first out gay man to moderate a presidential debate).
