It is a near-impossible task to determine which Obama-related antics generated the most mockery, cartoons, photoshopped images and jokes and hilarity on the Internet this past week. Where does one begin?
With the rodeo clown, of course. Because: “Above all else, the devil cannot stand to be mocked.” – C.S. Lewis
In support of freedom of speech and for the clown who was barred from appearing at a Missouri rodeo for wearing an Obama mask, Glenn and his sidekicks proclaimed Tuesday as “Mock Obama Day” on the Glenn Beck Radio Show. And they did, mercilessly, donning Obama masks and pink-bowed Minnie Mouse ears, which they wore for a good portion of the three-hour broadcast. Twitter quickly chimed in with thousands of #MockObamaDay tweets that continued for several days more.
Twitterers wasted no time offering their own send-ups of the geographically challenged (“57 states”, “Gulf Ports”) rodeo clown of the United States (“RCOTUS”), resurrecting the skeet-shooting flap, dog-eating comment, dismal ball-throwing ability both on the baseball field and basketball court, his teleprompter dependency, the umbrella foibles, his royal toast mishap, his “mom” jeans, his golf-course prancing, mispronunciation (“corpsemen”), and oh so much more, including a Saturday Night Live video clip showing that the rodeo clown wasn’t the first to don an Obama mask:
As if the rodeo clown gaff-astrophy wasn’t enough to set the Obama administration back on its heels last week, while POTUS was mixing it up with the “swells” on the Vineyard, his so-called “body-man” Reggie Love dumped another shovelful of “oops” on him, inadvertently generating a firestorm of presidential proportions and another wave of mocktastic revelry when he said in an interview that he and POTUS were engaged in an evening of card-playing in the White House private residence during the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound. Photoshoppers immediately set to work, depicting the presidential card game. One image of a card-holding Obama in the Situation Room went viral on Twitter and elsewhere throughout the social media-sphere.
As Daniel Greenfield observed, “Fresh from giving a speech warning disabled veterans that the sequester would cut their health benefits (more than he has already), Barack I ferried his dog on an advanced Marine Corps chopper.”
As the following photo points out, Bo received more consideration for his safety than did the Americans killed in Benghazi:
Meanwhile, Twitter curator Twitchy pointed out, “Egyptians haven’t been shy about expressing their displeasure with President Obama and his support of Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, carrying signs calling him a “jerk” and an “idiot” and Morsi his “b—-.” This weekend they took their frustration online, managing to trend the hashtag #ObamaMotherHasNoHair.”
