  2. One reporter supposedly shouted: “Now we know which side of the force you’re on, Josh!”

    That’s not a caption, just an observation from the story I read.

  3. No way. That’s not photoshopped?

    Payback to Hollywood for all the money.

  6. President Barack Obama prematurely wrapped the press conference to go catch a screening of The Force Awakens. “OK, everybody, I got to get to ‘Star Wars,” Obama told the press corps before leaving the lectern.

  7. here’s a graph what shows you cell phone taxes by state (not including the 5.82% federal tax)

    happyfeet (831175)

  8. Plus, and this and this.

    Maybe this is part of the Obamas’ plan to show they don’t just watch too much TV.

  9. And .

  10. It won’t let me link the FLOTUS video of the Marine opening the door for R2D2. Interesting.

    DRJ (15874d)

  11. A working link is here, via Instapundit.

  12. Good grief. Product placement in the White House. What are the going rates?

    Patricia (5fc097)

  13. count National Soros Radio in with those what are sleazily using your tax dollars to nakedly promote disneytrash

    One of the new characters in the latest Star Wars, BB-8, is one adorable droid. With only a sketch of the final product, its creators didn’t know how much fuss would come from the harmless robot.*

    yes yes this is the kind of hard-hitting news your tax dollar buys

    happyfeet (831175)

  14. I don’t mind his going to the golf course or other recreational pursuits, or to Hawaii or Europe, etc, etc, all the time, anytime. What I DO mind is his always returning to the White House.


    (And — speaking of Star Wars — take the “Wookie” with you too.)

  15. I read his vacations and holidays have cost $70M, and there is a year to go. In March, he and Michelle took separate flights to speak in LA on the same day, just a few blocks apart.

    DRJ (15874d)

  16. Of course, the separate flights for TV appearances aren’t part of the $70M. They were official travel, not personal, so the entire bill was paid by the taxpayers.

    DRJ (15874d)

  17. hmm, the obvious:

    Josh Earnest shows off the new uniform proposed for imperial stormtroopers DHS agents.

    more geek:

    It becomes obvious why the press has asked no hard questions of the Obama administration as Josh Earnest declares “these are not the storm troopers you are looking for.”

    max (4fdf98)

  18. For those who have been wondering … No, we never work here at the White House. It’s one big party.

    DRJ (15874d)

  19. he and Michelle took separate flights

    In keeping with stories of, for example, his spending a holiday weekend about 2 years ago by going to Florida with his “body man,” while she took the kids to Colorado.

    Mark (74fce8)

  20. the disneysluts will hand michelle a talk show and give her hundreds of millions once her fat ass is off the throne

  21. “5 bucks gets you a dance from one of these bad boys!”


    “uh, Live long and prosper, ammirite!?”

    felipe (56556d)

  22. “It was this or Oompa Loompas.”

    Bill H (2a858c)

  23. “White House spokesman Josh Earnest explains to querulous reporters why President Obama has gone on his own vacation, away from Michelle.”

    Bill H (2a858c)

  24. “All is proceeding as the Emperor has foreseen.”

  25. Every time I think this maladministration can’t degrade the United States or the office of President any further they somehow manage to surprise me.

    Do they realize the Stormtroopers they have at the Presidential podium are modeled after Nazi stormtroopers? Or since it fits the administration it just doesn’t matter? There is really something wrong with a man who thinks this embodies the President. How infantile.

    Rev. Barack Hussein Hoagie™ (f4eb27)

  26. “yes yes yes it’s awful how the disneysluts bought and sold access to failmerica’s sleazy white house,” happyfeet averred in all earnestness, his gorgeous soft hazel eyes wide with sincerity.

    “But is there for reals not gonna be one single post about heavily-bearded cheesedoodle pervert paul ryan’s sleazy and incestuous whorebudget?” he asked plaintively, searching the room for some trace some small hint a whiff of agreement.

    “Not even one?”

    “I HATE STAR WARS” he screamed petulantly, and in that moment he didn’t care who knew it.

  27. Hi mom.

  28. Valerie Jarret is Emperor Palpatine and President Obama is Jar Jar Binks.

    she’s truly evil

  30. And this is why the first order destroyed the new republic with the starkiller.

    narciso (732bc0)

  31. starkiller is such an ugly word

    they should call it a retrofitted chrome-plated lemon zester i think

  32. Josh Earnest announces his coup.

    “I am in control here, at the White House.”

    Kevin M (25bbee)

  33. Well, they are a bit more stormtrooperish than the Secret Service uniforms Nixon came up with:

    Tom (1e059e)

  34. Me’sa called Jar-Jar Earnest now, and me’sa propose the Senate give President Obama extrasensory powers to dally with the Sirius rebels.

    Gunray: “My lord, is that… legal?”
    Sidious: “I will make it legal”)

    Eliot (327596)

  38. “Now, who has the first question?”

    Kevin M (25bbee)

  39. Pretty good, Kevin M.,
    my claim to victory was premature.

    MD in Philly (not in Philly at the moment) (deca84)

  40. Work will set you free, but before we issue work assignments you’ll have 5 minutes to shower and clean up: women and children under 12 to the left, men to the right. Welcome to the future.

    ropelight (d1cb3c)

  41. The sad thing, ropelight, is how many people on the street would have no clue what that was referring to.

    MD in Philly (not in Philly) (deca84)

  42. You mean the press briefings aren’t always like this?

    Joe Miller (c8e984)

  43. I wish Spielberg would stop redoing the characters. Jabba the Hut gets more hideous every time.

    Joe Miller (c8e984)

    This is our thread-winner, dammit! And “troupers” is actually better since there are no professionals in this administration, only actors.
