Skip to comments.Media degrades FLOTUS (instead of vetting POTUS)
Posted on 06/07/2012 3:24:54 PM PDT by edwinland
It's obvious from the clip below that the President was making a perfectly innocent joke about First Lady Michelle Obama's push-ups and that the crowd misinterpreted or chose to misinterpret it. But now the media is actually asking if Obama meant to tell a dirty joke about his own wife in front of a large crowd and who knows how many cameras:
You can see from the look on the President's face that once he realizes how the crowd interpreted what he said that's he's both horrified and angry -- as well he should be.
Looking for nothing more than link bait, rather than correctly interpret or dismiss what happened here, the media runs with headlines like: "Did President Obama Just Make A Blowjob Joke?"
In those rare moments when the media chooses to attack Obama, I don't normally assume the position of defending him, but this is grossly unfair. Furthermore it's degrading to the First Lady of the United States, which I find especially appalling.
Reporting the crowd's reaction is perfectly fair game, but wondering aloud if the President meant it, is way over the line.
Good heavens, there are two young children involved here.

I watched the video. Obama is clearly making a joke about Michelle cheating in push-ups. Initially he looks pleased when the crowd laughs at his very lame joke. Then the *ass-h*les in the audience start hooting and hollering and he looks confused. Then he starts stammering through the rest of his speech because his mind is still focused on figuring out what just happened, or he is embarassed by how it sounded.
I could easily see myself making the same mistake, minus the teleprompter.
First of all, to hang around with Ellen Degenerate and then brag about it, shows that these low life punks are just in it for the free vacations, golf outings, celebrity associations, and the freebees . . . grifters, I guess you'd call them . . . but disgusting grifters.
I disagree completely.
Zero knew that he was making a smutty joke, and he pauses to milk it for everything it’s worth.
Just who proofreads his teleprompter anyway?
Honestly, some people will believe anything.
If he didn’t want that reaction why would he say it? Why would he even bring up Mooch doing pushups? I think after he was crassly toying around, he realized he stepped in it big time when he got that huge reaction from the audience.
It’s not a blowjob joke. It’s a carpet munching joke about his wife going down on Ellen, a well known Hollywood homosexual.
This from the same creep who called patriotic men, women, and children “tea baggers”.
I personally think he’s worried about what Michelle is going to say the next time she gets him alone on the second floor of the White House — out of range of the Secret Service.
That is one SCARY female.
I do know that when I first saw a report on this story --on an MSM site-- Obama was described by the MSM reporter as pausing "naughtily."
Clearly, at least that MSM reporter believed that Obama meant to convey the double meaning.
Now that I've seen the clip, I'm not sure. But I do know that an "LGBT" audience is primed to interpret everything sexually.
Would such an audience frown on an off-color joke about any president's wife? No, they would think such a joke would be hip and cool.
Ellen D. was displeased, not of the joke of course.
I really don’t think he meant for it to be dirty...
...but he WAS giving a speech to a bunch of perverts.
Of course they thought it was dirty.
You lie with dogs...
This was not a slip of the tounge on Barry's part. It's the pallet cleanser from Wisconsin in the news.
I thought he was joking about her going down on Ellen (who would enjoy it).
Not really - this whole thing is just another indication of the depravity of the media, AND the people whom he attracts and is supported by.
I hope she beats the living sh!t out of him. It would probably be the first time he’s ever been in a fight.
While it might seem innocent enough...if he was in a men’s club....don’t kid yourself....his mind was full of the same gay thoughts as his audience. Stop making excuses for him.
The title is absolutely wrong. He was talking about what ELLEN, an open lesbian, was saying. When Ellen said that Michelle didn’t go all the way down it was interpreted by the crowd as meaning Michelle did not perform oral sex on Ellen. The term BJ does not apply to female on female behavior of this type. A better to tile would be more accurate if it referenced a carpet or a rug.
well the audience was a bunch of gay sex fiends, what dya expect
Q: Just who proofreads his teleprompter anyway?
A: A Proofter!
OMG! That one liner fit the crowd exactly.
