    So here’s the cast for the new movie ‘Barry’, that will tell of a young Barack Obama in college in New York…and his then white girlfriend…LOL..

    Here’s the actor playing the young ‘Barry’…

    And here’s the actress playing his then white girlfriend…

    It was only a matter of time before they tried to argue that some white woman or other was more relevant, important and impactful in shaping the man and President, than the black woman he married and had children with…

    Anyone notice how now that Hillary has a seemingly healthy lead, there’s no more hysterical cries of faux-outrage at just how ‘racist’ Bernie and his supporters are…that, my friends was the ploy to turn black voters against – and to not even consider Bernie Sanders as a viable option…Nobody is even talking about that so-called incident involving a Bernie supporter and Dolores Huerta in Nevada now…But if Bernie starts defeating Hillary again, watch out…

    They’re now turning their focus to the general and the frontrunner for the GOP…there’s now this blanketing and suffocating us with every last outrageous stuff Trump has ever said and done – including stuff he said and did when he was still very much best pals with the Clintons…and they had no problem with him or anything offensive he was saying or doing then…

    But we’re supposed to get all outraged with Trump now …and only just so we rush to the polls and help make Hillary’s obsession come true..

    Not happening…

      of course there’s another MOFO ‘SHOULDING” on POTUS.

      There aren’t enough of this to wipe up all the “SHOULDS” these MOFOs have spewed out of their filithy mouths on President Obama.

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump may have said things at his Super Tuesday news conference, but no one could hear him over New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s wordless look behind him. The Post’s Alexandra Petri uses Hollywood movies to interpret. (Gillian Brockell / The Washington Post)


  7. Sitting in doctor’s office. My eye is tearing again. I want him to make it stop. Tired of this.

    • yahtzeebutterfly says:

      Take care of yourself. Glad you are at doctor’s. Hope it’s better soon!

    • Ametia says:

      SG2, take care of your EYES, lady.

    • eliihass says:

      Take care of yourself SG…Ask your doctor to check for blockage in your drainage system..

      I know it’s hard, but you should also rest those eyes…Blink often and take long breaks from everything screen-y…And get more sleep…rest those eyes..

      Also wipe down all surfaces with non-toxics such as undiluted tea tree oil…pour drops of tea tree oil on a clean damp cloth, and wipe down everything…bedside tables, lamps, books …everything wipeable…

      And don’t forget to keep your hands away from eyes…and be sure to keep hands clean and sanitized at all times – just in case ..

        First Lady Michelle Obama is not an after thought, MOFOs!

        • eliihass says:

          Thank you Sis…I’m so sick of this crap..

          But we need to keep pushing back and speaking out…even if they won’t admit it, we are shaking them up by calling their crap out..

          I hear FLOTUS was at this event today and Nancy Pelosi was being all ‘nice’ to her…

          …After 8 long years…

          Also, did you see that there’s a movie being made about a young President Obama and a white girlfriend he had when he was a student in New York…

          You can’t make this stuff up…

          Movie is called ‘Barry’ and the script was written by this white guy who lives in Berkeley…and the movie will be directed by this Indian American…they’ve already picked the actors to play young ‘Barry’…and an actress to play his then white girlfriend..

      • Ametia says:

        SMH The lengths in which they’ll go to disparge , disrepect, and dismiss First Lady Michelle Obama.

        These MOFOs can’t stand the fact that PRESIDENT Barack Obama chose a BLACK woman to be his wife and bear his children.

        THE NERVE. That’s why they disrespect FLOTUS, simply went BALISTIC that a Black Woman is FIRST LADY and is residing in the WHITE HOUSE.

    • eliihass says:

      They keep using every desperate trick they can pull..

      Boston Mayor Marty Walsh is also the same guy who boasted that he was in New Hampshire with 1000 volunteers to ensure a Hillary win that did not happen…So I suppose they took no chances in Massachusetts and resorted to other tricks…

      Everyone is dancing hard to earn that ‘Clinton reward’ James Clyburn alluded to..

      • Ametia says:

        The Clintons PLAY DIRTY.

        They did everything they could to squeak out that win in MA yesterday.

        • eliihass says:

          I just commented on one of the articles a friend sent me re: the movie about young ‘Barry’ and the extra-special white girlfriend..LOL…I’m sure they’ve never had a ‘comment’ this long..But I had to get stuff off my chest..

          A movie about the relationship with another woman in his late teens and early twenties, of a President who’s been happily married now for over 23 years, and together with his wife, have two beautiful young daughters…Whose idea was this..?

          There are no movies detailing or featuring the random ex-girlfriends of any of our previous presidents – and especially not any about the typically unserious and passing encounters – of which there are often more than a few – that any former president had in their late teens/early twenties. What exactly are those behind this script and movie up to? What are they trying to prove?

          And why does the black First Lady and wife of the president, have to be subjected to this disrespectful and demeaning stunt by complete strangers looking to hijack and deliberately sully what is now also very much her story too, by exploiting and sensationalizing random and extremely inconsequential bits of her now famous husband’s early and frankly, not particularly significant years of his life – at her expense and that of their 2 impressionable daughters who have already been subjected to more than enough b.s. as it is..

          One might excuse and even understand a story about his time at Harvard where years later, the future President would become the first black Editor of the Law Review…but it’s not like he was some great inventor or accomplished something noteworthy during those earlier years in New York…Forged key relationships..? Not really..

          Or is this that white privilege often spoken of, where every attempt is made to highlight and retroactively elevate/give credit and special billing to some random white girl that just happened to have met and had a fling with the black guy who later becomes important – in this case, President – and only after and because he meets, falls in love, marries, grows, labors and toils and succeeds together with his phenomenal black wife…

          Is this an attempt to devalue and discount the first black First Lady and her long marriage by those who always tend to overlook, disrespect and dismiss black women..the same people like Adam Mansbach and others who never really see or fully acknowledge and extend any consideration to black women – not even when they are the longtime wife and life partner – and half of a prominent couple? And only just to make white women specifically, and the white race in general, feel a tad better and special – and not entirely rejected or left out in the story of this now prominent black man who married a black woman when he had nothing – and together, have painstakingly built what has become a really great life – and after much sacrifice on her part…A prominent man who is very much devoted to his black wife, and very passionately loves and dotes on her too..

          I dare Adam Mansbach to write a script about say, Bill Clinton – with any other woman other than Hillary, that a young Bill – or even an older one – had an encounter with as he forged ‘key relationships’ in life…I’m sure Bill Clinton had plenty of those..

          Adam won’t go there however, because as much respect, consideration and protection as Hillary Clinton and white married women in general are afforded by white men like Adam Mansbach, Adam and his ilk actively go out of their way to devalue, dismiss, discount and deny black married women and their sacred union, any of that same respect, consideration and protection they freely extend to others…

          Hillary Clinton and her bumpy marriage courtesy of her adulterous husband – sacred…off-limits….Michelle Obama and her solid marriage – meh….open to disrespect, speculation, and to be devalued and chipped away at at will…and freely intruded upon by all and sundry..

          The happily married first black President’s historic ascent wouldn’t be complete or valid – as far as white people are concerned – if tales of his boyish escapades with that special, irresistible and delicate species known as white women, were not introduced under some guise at some point, and exclusively highlighted and bogusly celebrated…in this instance, by a white man, who in true form, trivializes, and pretends the President’s black wife inconsequential, not worthy of consideration…presumed irrelevant and discounted – and casually disregarded and stepped all over – even as Adam ironically goes out of his way to pay homage to some random white girl from the President’s teen/college years…Never mind that like it or not, Michelle Obama’s husband would not be President today – or the subject of these glowing tributes including in movie form – had he not the good fortune to meet, fall in love with and marry this particular woman…who to the chagrin of some, just so happens to be *gasp* black..

          Someday – soon hopefully, someone will tell the story of all the crap this first black First Lady had to put up with…

        • eliihass says:

          I just posted a looooong response to you in the wrong spot Ametia…LOL..

    • Ametia says:

      The rules don’t apply to the CLINTONS, DON’T CHA KNOW!

  9. If we don’t stand together with black youth who ask candidates legitimate questions, then who? If President Obama dismissed young white kids questions that concerned them there would be outrage. Our kids deserve better because their lives matter.

  10. Why reward Hillary Clinton when she dismisses black youth like they do not matter but yet covet our votes?

  11. Hillary Clinton did not apologize for “super predator”.She stated she should not have used those words. Well what words then? Niggas, hooligans, monsters, thugs?

      Nice quote from Senator Reid, it’s easy to rail on the GOP, but let’s not forget this. Harry Reid is part of the Democratic establishment that is ramming Hillary Clinton down our throats. He is, quite obviously, not a strong believer in a democratic process for choosing presidential nominees. Rather, he believes that “elites know best” and he had best not throw too many stones while living in his glass house.

      Harry Reid delivers (Nevada) for Hillary Clinton: Jon Ralston
      Jon Ralston 3:34 p.m. EST February 21, 2016

      Clinton might not have won Nevada if Reid had not interceded last week, when the man feigning neutrality saw what everyone in the Democratic elite saw: Sanders erasing a once mountainous lead and on the verge of perhaps winning Nevada and rendering inoperative the “Hillary is more electable” argument.

      The story of the Nevada caucuses is that a lame-duck senator and a self-neutered union conspired to revive the Clinton campaign in a remarkable bit of backroom maneuvering that helped Madame Secretary crush Sanders in Clark County, the key to winning almost any statewide election. Combined with a Clinton machine, erected last spring and looking invincible, that suddenly had to scrape the rust off its gears and turn out her voters, Caucus Day also was a remarkable story of an indomitable candidate, her nonpareil Nevada staff and a ragtag but committed Sanders operation that made them sweat.

        The hypocrisy…

        Democrats have lost all credibility…They lack no moral standing to point fingers..

        Should read..’any’ not ‘no’ moral standing to point fingers..

      • Liza says:

        I agree. The hypocrisy is hard to bear.

    • Ametia says:

      Tell us something we DON’T already know, Harry Reid!

      “The Snyder Administration effectively put a financial gun to the heads of Flint families by using the Emergency Manager agreement to lock the City into taking water from a poisoned source even after alarm bells were going off all over the Snyder Administration that lead and Legionnaire’s disease were poisoning families,” Dillon said.”It is simply unconscionable.”

      The Snyder Administration is 100 percent responsible for what happened in Flint. So far, they have not been held accountable. The only question left is why? Rick Snyder is pretending to be part of the solution rather than the root cause. Don’t be surprised if he runs for the GOP presidential nomination in 2020, when he should, in fact, be in prison.

    Super Tuesday moves Trump much closer to GOP nomination
    03/02/16 08:00 AM
    By Steve Benen

    Super Tuesday expectations for Donald Trump were high, but there was no reason to assume he was necessarily going to dominate. After all, the last week has been less than kind to the Republican frontrunner.

    There was a debate in which his rivals teamed up on him. There were controversies surrounding his support from white supremacists and his bogus “university.” There was the increasingly frantic opposition to his candidacy from within the Republican Party. There was the perception, at least among much of the press, that some of the attacks made by Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz were starting to weaken Trump’s support.

    But as the dust settles on Super Tuesday, there can be no doubt that Donald Trump is the odds-on favorite to win the Republican Party’s presidential nomination. If the frontrunner’s easy wins in New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada were the set-up, yesterday was the punch-line.
    Trump scored seven victories Tuesday in Massachusetts, Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas, and in Vermont, where NBC News declared him the apparent winner.
    And in terms of delegates, Trump added to his advantage and, according to NBC News’ tally, now leads the field with 292 delegates, followed by Ted Cruz’s 188, and Marco Rubio’s 98.

    As for the bigger picture, let’s again try to cut through the noise and break things down from a pitch-vs-hype-vs-truth perspective.

    • Liza says:

      Yes, thank you Fox News for providing endless insight into how stupid people think. While reasonably intelligent people are always astonished by these revelations, it is important to remember just who is out there. It’s scary, but should not be ignored.

    Biden thanks Trump for making America confront racism
    6:59 a.m. Wednesday, March 2, 2016 | Filed in: Politics

    WASHINGTON — While presidential hopefuls waited with bated breath for vote tallies on Super Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden thanked GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump for forcing Americans to confront racism.

    Biden thanked Trump as a crowd gathered at the Naval Observatory in Washington laughed Tuesday evening during a reception in honor of Black History Month, according to a White House press pool report.

    “The stuff he’s doing, and others, the stuff [Ted] Cruz is doing — he’s making the American people look in the mirror,” he said. “If we’re smart, and we’re lucky, I’m convinced that the American people are prepared over the next decade to gradually deal with institutional racism.”

    Biden said the country appeared to be at a pivotal moment in race relations and civil rights issues. He credited the Black Lives Matter movement for its efforts to bring issues of racism to the forefront.

    The group has “awakened ordinary Americans,” he said.
