Former President of the United States
Barack Obama - President of the United States
Barack Obama looks on during a joint session of Congress, 2/24/09By: Pete Souza
"Real Time" host Bill Maher has had it with how Republicans have a different set of rules when it comes to how they respond to what the President says now that he is a member of their own party, so he brought out Obama impersonator Reggie Brown to read some of Trump's most memorable quotes. What followed is eight minutes of cringe worthy hilarity.
President Obama has had more than his fair share of zingers directed at the 2016 Republican Presidential nominee throughout the years and his speech at the Democratic National Convention was no different. Donald Trump may have won the nomination, but there is no chance of him ever winning a fight against President Obama."Comb Over Here!"
The unexpected death of Justice Scalia throws a wrench into an already volatile 2016 election and what happens next will largely depend on a variety of factors and political calculations made by President Obama and the Republican controlled Senate.Here are some scenarios that can happen as the President and Senate battle it out over who will replace the late justice.
"They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right. The judgment of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed." And just like that, marriage equality is the law of the land.Today is a day millions of our citizens--both gay and straight--will never forget.
"If you want to go face to face with me President Obama, I'm ready to go because I have the facts!" – Ed Schultz responding to President Obama for calling out MSNBC for its opposition to the TPP.
Benjamin Netanyahu's reelection left many of those who desperately want a peaceful solution to the decades old Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a sense of despair. The Prime Minister's victory, in many peoples eyes, virtually closes the door on any resolution between the two sides for the foreseeable future with no way of knowing when or if talks between the two sides will start again.
Do you hear that noise? It's the sound of crickets from the birther community after Senator Ted Cruz announced his candidacy for President of the United States. Why, you may ask, should there be any noise from this community over Senator Cruz's eligibility to run for President in 2016? Well, that's because Senator Cruz, unlike President Obama, actually wasn't born in the United States.
Who exactly is in charge of American foreign policy? President Obama or Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu? Any middle-school aged student would easily be able to answer this, but the Republican Congress seems to think differently.

"I wish this president would learn how to be an American."
"I call him a monkey, I don't call him guy with rabbit ears. I call him a monkey, And I call him a... I don't believe in calling him the first black president. I think he should... I voted for the white guy myself."
"There are a lot of things that haven't been hammered at because Rick and Mitt have been going at each other. Now that they have trained their barrels on President Obama, I hope his teleprompters are bulletproof."
Not all folks are gifted in the same way. Some people have incredible gifts with their hands. Some people have incredible gifts and ... want to work out there making things. President Obama once said he wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob. There are good decent men and women who go out and work hard every day and put their skills to test that aren’t taught by some liberal college professor trying to indoctrinate them. Oh, I understand why he wants you to go to college. He wants to remake you in his image. I want to create jobs so people can remake their children into their image, not his.
[Obama's] never been a part of the black experience in America. I can talk about that.
"[Obama] has the lowest public approval ratings of any president in modern times."
"Obama calls on Americans to "service" on September 11. 911 is a day of mourning, not service... This is part of the relentless campaign to whitewash 911 and distract from the terrible reality of the day that forever changed this country. This once again illustrates the huge void Obama has in his thinking. He cannot fake a love for his country, nor does it appear that he wants to. The man is missing a chip."
