Trump Derailed by Obama’s Endorsement - The New Yorker

A vote for Trump is a vote for Obama!

From the New Yorker:

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Adding a new wrinkle in an already unpredictable election year, Donald Trump saw his poll numbers plummet on Monday after receiving a surprise endorsement from President Barack Obama. The long-awaited downfall of the abrasive billionaire came in startling fashion, as few had expected the President to offer a full-throated endorsement of Trump, especially on the eve of the all-important Super Tuesday primaries.

Ha Ha Ha!!!

“In every way that matters, Donald and I are on exactly the same page,” Obama said, pointing to a framed picture of the billionaire on his Oval Office desk. Concluding his endorsement with an emphatic closing argument, Obama said, “If you love me, vote for Trump.”

As news of the President’s endorsement spread, former Trump supporters across the nation gathered to vent their anger, with some burning signs, trucker hats, and other campaign paraphernalia at impromptu bonfires. Harland Dorrinson, who had attended a massive Trump rally in Alabama just a day earlier, said that he now felt totally betrayed by the billionaire. “I guess when all is said and done, Donald Trump was just too good to be true,” he said.


Bet you didn't see this happening.

Well, I don't know about you but if Obama wants Trump then that's it- I'll show him and vote for Bernie!

I just burned all of my Trump paraphernalia. A big pile of smoking plastic and paper is spewing toxic bright green flames up into the air above my yard.
My neighbor looked perplexed. I brought out the shotgun and handed him the article on my phone. He promptly raised the gun and blasted his vote for Trump sign into shreds.

Good try Trump, but we all finally see the light and who's side you're really on...

I can't find this anywhere but The New Yorker and it's by Andy Borowitz, who is a comedian. No video or any other source.

You know this guy writes satire...right?

Love the framed picture in the oval office part I'm still laughing. Should have xoxoxo and signed by Trump. It is funny when you think about it imagine what this would do to the Obama supporters they would have a fit. And imagine that would be the a coup of unheard of proportions for a democratic president to endorse a republican. The article is funny however and I got a good laugh with my coffee.

“If you love me, vote for Trump.”

- Why'd you vote for Trump?
- I love Obama, esse.

Powerful stuff, almost as if the president is telling us something.
Almost as if he said "yes, oui, כן" or "right and left are sides of the same pig, deal with it".

Vote with your time: give it to anyone, maybe other than the poly-headed candidate of "the white house", who doesn't listen to you anyway.
Give your electing time to a local leader who can answer your questions, to a local charity you agree with, or to your family or students before you give it to strange clowns along with your hope, your faith and your obedience.

Nothing good comes of giving your hope faith and obedience to strange clowns. Democracy, power of the people, is the power to do, make and lead, not the power to watch the show and cheer when told to like the zombiest #s would.

Whoever brings the most food is the president. Whoever chases away the wolves is the president. Whoever teaches you something is the president. You are the president when you do these things.
To deny this is to renounce your power. This leads to power-thirsty people filling that void where they can.

The white house has decent architecture, you can do better with your own house, you can do less pretentious, more orchardy, less enslaving, what ever you like. You are the people, the power is yours. Democracy.

Voting is for issues, not people: I vote against nuking Japan, not I vote for Cindy.
Internet is a good tool for this at all levels from UN to town hall. Or we can use it for more censorship and porn.

Politics isn't a popularity contest, it's a system of solving public issues, and does not apply to private issues, hence the political debates of should we control private aspects of lives this or that way are a waste of your time and energy.

Don't let yourself or your people be employed by these institutions who would regulate your marriage, your food, your security, your education, your doctor, or anything private. Those who do aren't serving you, and thinking they serve you allows them to use force in regulating lives of actual liberty, making you an evil pawn essentially furnishing your masters with the fruits of your labour while they ambush whoever rightfully doesn't. Don't be an evil pawn, death is just as dead and life isn't as alive.

The guy on TV only effects your life by occupying your thinking, with thoughts and feelings where fear, like poverty and suffering and war and killer bees and WMDs and Ebola take a star role. Do you know why?

Trump needs to get in front of this and totally disavow any knowledge of this so-called Obama fellow. Then he should be able to just sail along like he always has.

P.S. Do I need to let people know I am joking??

I think that would be helpful. Especially on this forum.
