Poor, poor, pitiful POTUS: Obama doesn’t think he gets enough respect


Has Barack Obama told you lately how hard it is being president? No? Well, it is hard.

During a visit this afternoon with the Miami Heat, President Obama confessed that people are mean to him sometimes. He just can’t get no respect!


Awww … poor baby! Meanwhile, the guy’s got no respect for everyday Americans:


He doesn’t really respect the Constitution, either. But please, be nice to him, you guys. He has feelings, too!

Respect is earned, Mr. President. Something you clearly known nothing about.

‘The hell you say?’ NBC reportedly wanted Jon Stewart to host MTP


According to New York Magazine, that pretty much sums it up:

Unreal. RT @sahilkapur: "NBC was prepared to offer Stewart virtually ‘anything' to bring him over.” http://t.co/KQTSLP7wNx

From the Daily Intelligencer:

Before choosing Todd, NBC News president Deborah Turness held negotiations with Jon Stewart about hosting Meet the Press, according to three senior television sources with knowledge of the talks. One source explained that NBC was prepared to offer Stewart virtually “anything” to bring him over. “They were ready to back the Brinks truck up,” the source said. A spokesperson for NBC declined to comment. James Dixon, Stewart’s agent, did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

Dang. That’s a juicy little news nugget, isn’t it?

.@TheDailyShow Can't wait for your segment tearing apart NBC fro trying to hire a comedian to host Meet the Press https://t.co/CHQzub6I4g

OMG. NBC wanted Jon Stewart to host Meet The Press. Oh journalism, how far have you fallen? That’s just pathetic.

NBC is a reputable news organization. Tough and completely not biased. That's why they wanted Jon Stewart to host Meet the Press. #wait

Eh, it’s NBC.

Jon Stewart deadpans to camera at thought of NBC hiring him to host Meet the Press (suggested segment title: Bleat the Press)

— Anthony Eboly (@AnthonyBialy) October 8, 2014

Jon Stewart hosting Meet the Press would mean it's just as unintentionally funny.

— Anthony Eboly (@AnthonyBialy) October 8, 2014

So nothing would really change, then.

Jon Stewart hosting a Sunday morning political show is just as unbelievable as having George Stephanopoulos host one. Oh wait…

If people are dumb enough to get their news from Jon Stewart, does it really matter which channel they tune into to do it?

— A.J. Winkelspecht (@ajwink) October 8, 2014

Good point.

Sure, Stewart is a clown. Maybe MTP would do better with a clown. Didja think of that?

— Gabriel Malor (@gabrielmalor) October 8, 2014

They sure as heck couldn’t do much worse.

Kudos to NBC for thinking outside the box w/ the Jon Stewart idea. The old Sunday morning show model is deader than dead.

Jon Stewart is no more a liberal hack than David Gregory. And Stewart is more respectable.

Fair enough!

A class act with a big heart. Always. Is it dusty in here?

Genius! This is how Obama will mark anniversary of Mandela’s death


Such an honor! As Twitchy readers know, President Ego took a selfie (a funeral selfie!) during the memorial for Nelson Mandela. FLOTUS was none too pleased and “Saturday Night Live” put on a mock-tastic skit about it on Saturday night.

But, how will the narcissist in chief honor the one year anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s death? Blogger and author John Hayward has a prediction:



It’s funny because it will likely be true.
