During the Obama administration, one in three Americans were unable to name the Vice President of the United States.
It would appear that many Americans are still unaware of who served as Obama’s VP from 2009 to 2016.
This is why Bernie Sanders needs to receive the Democratic nomination. Brave #resisters aren’t about to forget Bernie’s name and accidentally vote for Trump any more than Bernie is about to forget his principles and throw in with a Corporate Democrat like Hillary.
I just discovered that this is an ACTUAL person, and her name is Jennifer Rubin.
I honestly thought this was white transgender Obama.
That’s some seriously spooky shit.
Something similar once happened to me, only it was the morning of Obama’s inauguration, and I was trying to visit my son’s father in a DC hospital. He had a collapsed lung, and it would have been impossible to drive in that day.
I was visibly pregnant, and there wasn’t even enough room to sit on the floor.
I wasn’t about to ask someone to give up their seat (because: pride), but after about an hour, the woman who’d been leading the incessant chants of “OBAMA! OBAMA!” finally insisted that someone (anyone, male or female) needed to give up their seat for me.
Not one person was willing — presumably because I’d refused to join in the chanting, even after being prompted to do so by multiple people.
The woman was visibly embarrassed, and she went from chanting about Obama to vocalizing her disgust with everyone who was seated. Which was kind of her. She even insisted I take her only bottle of water.
I think she was trying to make their behavior into a feminist issue, but the reality was, those people were simply assholes.
Full disclosure: I’m not particularly happy with Trump, but I don’t have anything against the man personally, and I wouldn’t resort to base attacks even if I did. I’ve never spoken one word against Hillary or Obama except to criticize their ideologies and the decisions they’ve made.
You know what’s really great about this country? A complete psychopath could assume the Presidency, and not only would his/her potential to cause harm be vastly limited in scope, we also retain the option of ousting that individual after four years — or sooner, if need be.
Remember the Obamapocalypse that never actually happened? Sure, a case could easily be made for why he has been one of the worst presidents in history, but the bottom line is, we’re still here.
