Obama Mic Drop



"Obama out."

Yes.

Counting the days.

Out with Obama, in with... God help us.

White House Correspondents' Dinner: Obama's Speech

Last night, Obama gave his final performance as president at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

No more.

Here's video:




Osama Bin Laden: DEAD -- Five Years Ago

It's been five years since Osama bin Laden was killed.

I remember I was watching Celebrity Apprentice when NBC broke in and preempted the show. I certainly wouldn't have thought that Donald Trump would be on the verge of becoming the Republican nominee for president in five years.

So bizarre.

Read "Obama Bumps Trump."

Five years later, Islamists still threaten America and Trump still performs in the reality TV business.


From Sunday, May 1, 2011:

"Whether we bring our enemies to justice, or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done."

--George W. Bush, Address to a Joint Session of Congress and the American People, September 20, 2001

Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Obama announced tonight that Osama bin Laden was killed by a U.S. military operation.

It took ten years, but U.S. Special Forces got him.

The liberal media spin is predictable.

The man behind the suicide hijack attacks of September 11, 2001, and who U.S. officials said late on Sunday was dead, was the nemesis of former President George W. Bush, who pledged to take him "dead or alive" and whose two terms were dominated by a "war on terror" against his al Qaeda network.

Bush failed. Obama succeeded.

Lame.

We know Obama didn't want bin Laden alive.

He wanted him dead. Obama wouldn't know what to do with him if he were taken alive.

Obama's speech announcing the successful mission to kill bin Laden was rather self-serving. HE gave the order and don't forget it.

Watch video of Obama's announcement:



He definitely wants the nation to give him credit. Obama does deserve credit for basically keeping up the pressure on bin Laden by continuing President Bush's policies.

I'm so grateful to the brave men and women fighting the War on Terror, protecting us.

What bothers me is that some Leftist pundits are suggesting bin Laden's death will change American policy, as if the threat from RADICAL Islam is no more.

That's incredibly naive. I would think the threat of retaliation is greater now. I don't feel safer. We can't let our guard down.

Bin Laden's death is a great accomplishment. It's a milestone.

I hope it brings some peace to the loved ones of the victims of 9/11. I hope they feel a sense that justice has been done.

Bin Laden is dead but the war he declared against the U.S. isn't over.

Chris Pratt and Aaron Rodgers' Steak



From TMZ:
Chris Pratt says he takes FULL RESPONSIBILITY for torching Aaron Rodgers' steak on a couples trip earlier this month -- falling on the sword in the biggest celebrity meat story since "Kim Kardashian, Superstar."

Turns out Pratt's wife, Anna Faris, is tight with Aaron's lady, Olivia Munn ... and the foursome went on a fun outdoorsy vacation together last week. And everything was cool ... until dinner.

When the guys charred the steak, Olivia man-shamed the duo on social media. Now, Pratt's doing what any superhero would ... saving a friend.

But more importantly ... sounds like the guys had a good time together (perhaps a bromance is brewing?) ... and Pratt says the Packers QB is quite the outdoorsman.
How adorable! A bromance! A torched steak! Social media shaming!

Good grief.

There's something so weird about sharing these little personal details.

I can't picture Bart Starr mugging for the camera over a destroyed steak on a celebrity couples trip. I certainly can't picture Vince Lombardi scrolling through posts and tweets.

Men are different now and not in a good way.

I'm so glad Twitter and Instagram and Facebook weren't around during the Packers' Glory Years. I'm glad they weren't around during the return to glory under Favre in the 1990s.

There is a solution: If you find postings on social media annoying, simply don't spend time checking social media. It's easily done.





Jimmy Fallon: Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina Joke

JIMMY FALLON: This is pretty big. Today, Carly Fiorina was announced as Ted Cruz's running mate. Fiorina says it's always been her lifelong dream to lose twice in the same election. That's nice that we can make that happen for her.

Matt Lauer and Jimmy Fallon

Matt Lauer was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday.

I remember this hilarious video from Today.

In 2005, NBC News reporter Michelle Kosinski was paddling a canoe through floodwaters in Wayne, New Jersey, looking to be risking life and limb, until some guys strolled in front of her, walking through water only up to their ankles.

Busted!

Still makes me laugh.




The only thing that would have made that better would be if Brian Williams had been in the canoe instead of Kosinski.

To their credit Lauer and Katie Couric did acknowledge the embarrassment.

And, it should be noted that seemingly shallow floodwaters can be treacherous.

That said, don't believe the liberal media.
