Skip to comments.Obama Uses Press Conf To Mock 87-Yr. Old Widow

Say what you will about President George W. Bush, but I don't recall him ever mocking an elderly widow in his pronouncements. But Barack Obama couldn't get through his first press conference as president-elect without doing just that.
Answering a question from Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times as to the presidents he has consulted during the transition, Obama took a gratuitous jab at Nancy Reagan.
BARACK OBAMA: In terms of speaking to former presidents, I've spoken to all of them that are living, obviously President Clinton--I didn't want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about, you know, doing any séances.

Stay classy, Barack ping to Today show list.
How cowardly and puny.
We have an immature juvenile for President.
Typical of the Communist left.
What an idiot and the press just laughs along as he makes a gaffe about the wrong first lady.
...which should come as no surprise to anyone who has been paying even scant attention the past couple of years.
After mocking American motherhood, I am not surprised that there is yet another disgusting performance by the Kenyan Clown.
“I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about, you know, doing any séances.”
Don’t they cut something off in Islam for doing stuff like that?
side question - who is the reporter and did she hurt her arm patting herself on the back for getting Obama elected?
His remarks only show how immature he really is. A puppet for special interests.
I quit watching the news about 3 years ago. Finally unplugged TV last winter. Haven’t gotten a newspaper in years.
Barry, you idiot.
Nancy did not do séances, she was into Horoscopes.
Tis best to stay silent on things you know nothing about rather than to speak up and remove any doubt that you ARE an clueless, classless idiot!
You’re not doing a very good job to earn my respect.
And of course the treacherous presstitutes laughed heartily. Disgusting vermin
Nancy Reagan isn’t 85. She’s 87, and recently suffered a broken hip.
Can’t wait to hear what Michael Reagan has to say.
Making fun of a frail, widowed, broken-hipped, little old lady with more grace in her withered left pinky than he has in his entire body...WOW, what a tough guy he is, what a man! Damn, but Putin must be quaking in fear about dealing with Obama, no need to worry about those missiles that’ll be pointed at Poland, nosiree, Putin’s going to have them removed ASAP, otherwise Obama might make fun of HIS mother.
While Nancy Reagan was never my favorite person in the world, what I currently think of Obama simply isnt fit for discussing in mixed company.
What do you want to bet that we’ll eventually hear reports that his handlers will be taking him aside and coaching him to act like an adult.
That is soooooooooo tacky!!!
Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times. Obama asked her how she got hurt and she said she slipped running to his speech in Grant Park. Obama rather humorlessly replied along the lines that it was the only incident he was aware of from that evening.
She told him on live TV, during that question, that she hurt her elbow running to one of his rallies. Not sarcasm.
