News, but not the serious kind
Who’s messing with Obama’s mind?
Okay, staff, we’re all new to the Obama presidential team, but we CANNOT have a repeat of what just happened!
Do you KNOW what the president-elect DID today? He toured a fricking fastener factory, in OHIO! He even put on big plastic goggles and EXAMINED a BOLT, like it was interesting or something!
This leads me to ask, has NOBODY told him the election is over and he won? Bill? Mary? Pete? Linda? Nobody? You’d think he’d have read it in the newspaper!
Well that explains a lot about today’s trip, and why he said he’s looking forward to Tuesday’s DEBATE! We’re gonna have to grab him and break the news as soon as we see him.
This is SO embarrassing! The man held up a presentation BOLT for photographs, for Lord’s sake!
