Obama’s Approach to the VA Scandal: What Time Does SportsCenter Come Back On?

Tell us how you really feel, Barry

Well, this is about as candid an admission as you’re going to get from the most tone-deaf president in American history. It was bad enough that Obama posted a video of himself strolling around D.C. and talking to strangers last week, just as the Veterans Affairs Scandal was beginning to boil over. Now, with growing calls from both Republicans and Democrats to take bold, decisive action and fire Eric Shinseki at the very least, what’s Obama doing?

Hosting a day-long summit about sports concussions, of course.

Wait, what?

Seriously, that’s how Barry spent his Thursday–and there should be no question whatsoever that he’s the one with the brain concussion, given this cringe-worthy moment of  so-called candor, in which he confessed that “When I need to relax and clear my head, I turn to sports.” Obviously, that’s not a new piece of information. Just about everyone on Planet Earth is already aware of Barry’s ESPN obsession–Barack-etology, anyone?–but why is he talking about “relaxing” and clearing his head while everyone around the country wants answers about why his Department of Veterans Affairs is putting our military heroes on secret wait lists until they die? Any true leader would not even think of resting until the problem is completely solved. But this guy? I’m not sure he’d even qualify to perform at Amateur Hour anymore. All of those hours spent watching “SportsCenter” has rotted away his common sense.

Okay, so perhaps “I will not rest” has been a tad over-done. But for Pete’s sake, come up with SOMETHING that doesn’t make you look like a complete nincompoop, Barack!

Look, we know this guy doesn’t really care about the military. But the least he could do is pretend. For example, remember when some random former rival of Obama’s once said this?

See? Pretending to care is easy! And it ensures that you don’t look like a total dunce.
