The final press conference of 2016 for The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer was laced with his usual honeyed words and condescension. It reminded me of Cheech & Chong; those zany 1970s stoners of “Up In Smoke” fame.
Choomers are notorious for uttering sentences they believe to be profound. This president is no exception. He kicked things off with a long list of all the amazing things he has done for this country—and the world.

“In fact,” he said, “we did not see further tampering of the election process, but the leaks through Wikileaks had already occurred.” That Obama is one fierce president. Imagine anyone else saying “Cut that out!” and having it work so effectively.
Obama promised a cyber retaliation to Russia so stealthy, devastating, and impactful that no one will know about it, not even the Russians.— THIS JUST IN... (@weknowwhatsbest) December 16, 2016
He once again failed to acknowledge the many ISIS-inspired attacks on his watch which occurred on American soil. The truth continues to be a casualty of this administration. It is the sacrificial lamb slaughtered in furtherance of his image.
