On November 2nd, Obama dished out what his followers probably thought was the sickest of burns against the 2016 GOP candidates.
“I mean, let me tell you, if you can’t handle those guys, you know, then I don’t think the Chinese and the Russians are going to be too worried about you.”
And to be honest even I might have thought that was a pretty good comeback in this instance…except he stole it from a Fox News host.
I mean, I’m sure Obama would never stoop so low as to watch that dastardly Fox News channel, but the fact is that his comment is eerily similary to Megyn Kelly’s comment after the first debate, where she so memorably tangled with Donald Trump over his past (and present, let’s be honest) treatment of women.
I mean, come on.
However, don’t let this post fool you, I’m not defending the whining of some Presidential primary candidates that will remain nameless. I think their list of demands was pretty silly to be honest and the questions that some candidates (again, nameless) complained about at the last debate were not all bad. Personally I would like to know if Ben Carson can, in fact, do math and I don’t think that questioning his tax plan is unfair or unimportant.
I do, however, think that the President should come up with his own burns in the future…or at least don’t steal them from top rated cable news hosts.
