O-Kayyyy . . . Thousands Of Apparently Unemployed People Will Gather To Literally Clap For Obama

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 9:00 am



I have never appreciated the 22nd Amendment as much as I do today.

To say a final ‘Thanks Obama,’ thousands of Americans to applaud together on his last day

. . . .

Davis, a 29-year-old attorney in New York City, would mention her plans casually to friends. She persuaded a few to join her in Washington on Jan. 19, the day before the inauguration, to stand outside the president’s home and clap. After Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention in July, Davis decided to make a formal event page on Facebook. She figured a dozen or so like-minded friends might sign up.

She went to bed that night and when she woke up less than eight hours later, 500 people had clicked that they planned to attend and another 700 marked that they were interested. In the coming days and weeks, the number grew incrementally, easily getting into the thousands. Then, when Trump won, interest spiked. By the Friday after Election Day, another 60,000 people said they were either going or wanted to.

What will they be applauding, I wonder? The doubling of the national debt, perhaps? The anemic recovery and the collapse of the labor force participation rate? Skyrocketing health insurance premiums? The explosion of entitlements such as SSI and food stamps?

Actually, that last one could be it . . .

Here’s an idea. If you didn’t like Obama, gather together a force of people to boo him. Spread the word on Facebook. Plan to gather outside the White House on January 19th and boo. BOOOOOO!!!

And if you don’t do that? If you let this group applaud without response? Well, then, you know what that will mean. It will prove that people actually loved Obama!!!

Or . . . maybe it will prove that you have a job and don’t have time for nonsense like that.

  1. This is only one of the creepy, fascist, personality-cult things Obama’s followers have put together; and at the same time they compare Trump rallies to Nuremberg.

    There are a lot of power-worshipers and state-worshipers in this country. Trump has his share, but at least the media doesn’t report favorably on them.

  2. Giving Obama the clap, eh? There won’t be all that many. They always overestimate how many loonies turn out for these kind of things by a factor 100 or more. In a population of over 330 million, they won’t even be noticeable statistical error.

  3. I will clap when I see their furniture being moved out, and the moving vans pulling out of the driveway.

  4. I imagine a lot of Barack’s supporters have The Clap — I mean, have you seen some of those skanks? (LOL)

  5. Meh. It’s not like they’re the first black family Trump has thrown out of their home.

  6. I would venture that at least 100 times more Obama supporters have the clap than will turn out to clap for him.

    That, sir, is Comedy Gold.

  8. My hope for the 19th of January 2017 is that Congress halts all spending for that day…so that Obama will forced to close down public spaces and hire security guards to evict people from breathing the government’s air…like how he had to do during the government spending freeze a couple years ago.

    It would be poetic to see barriers erected because there was no more money for Obama to spend.

  10. they should hold the applause til *after* he finishes doing genocide on the jews i think for so CNN can have inspirational footage for the news report

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  11. I’ll celebrate the fact that he didn’t start any phony wars, killing upwards of 100,000 or more innocent people and he didn’t leave our economy in shambles, like the last Republican did. Let’s hope Mr. Truthiness can do at least one of those.

    By the way, do you know who the only President to fail to deliver a year of 3% GDP growth is? (LOL)

  14. Being a useful idiot can be a paying position. The SEIU and other unions, various Soros NGOs and a variety of other liberal pressure groups often transport and pay hourly wages to individuals and groups to shill at such events.

    Back when I was on the other side, we called it “theater.” The saps in the media ate it up.

  15. food stamp’s gonna miss doing genocide on people something awful

    In a surprising move, President Obama, with only a week left in his presidency, has made the decision to lift sanctions and open up trade with Sudan; a regime that has and continues to commit genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity against its own people. The announcement is due to be made public today.

    please to hold your applause

  16. NBC’s Matt Lauer says he was reduced to tears when he watched President Obama surprise Vice President Biden with the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Thursday.

    mother of turds that’s even sillier than how the idiot scandi sluts emoted and gushed when they gave food stamp his nobel crackerjack peace prize

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  17. this narrative that joe biden was “surprised” is just proof that lunchbox joe never knows what’s going on (LOL)

  19. Tillman, Bre Faucheux said on her blog; “As for Obama’s legacy, let it burn baby. Let it burn. We will replenish the scorched earth with liberal tears.

    I like that. It has a ring to it.

  22. Say goodbye to the obnoxious cult of personality President.

    Say hello to — uh, um — well?

  23. But that’s SOP.

    FDR cult? Yes;

    Kennedy cult? Yes;

    Bill Clinton cult? Yes;

    Ronald Reagan cult? Yes, though I’d prefer not to admit it.

    re starting wars

    Whatever happened to Obama’s civilian organization that was just as strong and just as well funded as the military? Is is the Foodstamp Militia?

  29. If Obama’s Clap and Fondle Corp gathering ends up like the Bonus Marcher I hope they are prepared to run a 10k under direct fire.

    crazy (d3b449)

  37. I realize you’re being sarcastic, but I wouldn’t be quick to make any bets on how many of those people showing up to clap for Obama don’t have jobs. How many don’t have jobs in the non-union private sector? That’s a different bet. Funny how many of those “low-paid humble public servants” can show up at rallies and marches and protests in the middle of a workday.

    Word is that the Clinton’s Secret Service coded moniker was “Dyson1″. Clinton reportedly chafed at “Hoover1″, as he did not care for J. Edgar.

    Chronology does not work. Dyson vacuuum cleaners didn’t hit the US market until after his presidency.

  50. In a surprising move, President Obama, with only a week left in his presidency, has made the decision to lift sanctions and open up trade with Sudan; a regime that has and continues to commit genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity against its own people. The announcement is due to be made public today.

    Somebody remind Marco Rubio that the head of the government of Sudan is a war criminal. And, unlike Putin, he even has an arrest warrant out against him.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omar_al-Bashir

    In July 2008, the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Luis Moreno Ocampo, accused al-Bashir of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes in Darfur.[16] The court issued an arrest warrant for al-Bashir on 4 March 2009 on counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, but ruled that there was insufficient evidence to prosecute him for genocide.[17][18] However, on 12 July 2010, the Court issued a second warrant containing three separate counts. The new warrant, as with the first, were delivered to the Sudanese government, which did not recognize it nor the ICC.[18] The indictments do not allege that Bashir personally took part in such activities. Instead, they say, he is “suspected of being criminally responsible, as an indirect co-perpetrator”.[19] Some international experts think it is unlikely that Ocampo has enough evidence.[20] The court’s decision is opposed by the African Union, League of Arab States, Non-Aligned Movement, and the governments of Russia and China.[21][22]

    But Obama can only pressure a government about one thing at a time, and they decided that the war in South Sudan is more important.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/13/world/africa/sudan-sanctions.html

    On Friday, the Obama administration will announce a new Sudan strategy. For the first time since the 1990s, the nation will be able to trade extensively with the United States, allowing it to buy goods like tractors and spare parts and attract much-needed investment in its collapsing economy.

    In return, Sudan will improve access for aid groups, stop supporting rebels in neighboring South Sudan, cease the bombing of insurgent territory and cooperate with American intelligence agents.

    American officials said Sudan had already shown important progress on a number of these fronts. But to make sure the progress continues, the executive order that President Obama plans to sign on Friday, days before leaving office, will have a six-month review period. If Sudan fails to live up to its commitments, the embargo can be reinstated.

    Obama is doing a lot of things now, that, he might, if he had more time, do later.

    One thing he’s NOT doing is completing the investigation of the Eric Garner case. If that were done, the Attorney General would have to clear the policeman like was done in the Michael Brown case – they broke the news gently. First they found other things wrong in Ferguson, Missouri.

    Sammy Finkelman (8a20da)

  51. JVW – the Browns did. They just built it while they were on the other side of it.

    NickM (d6362a)

  52. Oh, I am applauding President Obama’s last day as well, and no one has to pay me to do it.
