For the seven hundredth time since becoming President, Barack Obama will be on 60 Minutes this Sunday.
(Okay, maybe seven hundred is an over-estimate, but probably not by much)
Steve “Softball” Kroft asks him, in the sweetest, most supplicating way possible about Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama gets super-duper mad.
I saw this video clip at The Right scoop last night and couldn’t believe what I was watching.
Kroft: You said a year ago that the United States … America leads. We are the indispensable nation. Mr. Putin seems to be challenging that leadership.
Obama (with frowny face): In what way? Le-let’s think about this–
Kroft: Well, he’s moved … he’s move–
Kroft: He’s moved troops into Syria for one…
Kroft: He’s got people on the ground.
Kroft: Two. The Russians are conducting military operations in the Middle East for the first time since World War Two.
Obama: So that’s … so that’s… so–
Kroft: Bombing the people that we are supporting.
Obama: So that’s “Leading,” Steve? The … uh … so … Let me ask you this question. When I came into office … uh … Ukraine was governed by a corrupt ruler who was a stooge of Mr. Putin. Syria was Russia’s only ally in the region. Aaaand, today, rather than being able to count on their support, and maintain the base they’ve had in Syria — which they’ve had for a long time, Mr. Putin now is devoting his own troops, his own military, just ta barely hold together … by a thread … his sole ally. And he–
Kroft: He’s challenging your leadership, Mr. President. He’s—
Obama: No. No. No.
Kroft: He’s challenging your leadership.
Obama: That … Steve …. I’ve …. uh …. I gotta tell ya, if … if … if … ya think that running your economy into the ground and having to send troops in … in order to prop up … your only ally is “leadership,” then we got a different definition of leadership.
I don’t know, Barry. You’ve been running our economy into the ground for seven years. Clearly you do think that’s “leadership.”
Seriously, what is this guy smoking?
I realize that Obama lives in a hermetically-sealed bubble that protects him from, oh, I don’t know … reality, but does he even for one second listen to the words that come tumbling out of his mouth?
Is he really this incapable of self-reflection or self-awareness?
Now, of course the White House has to maintain their position that Putin is acting out of weakness. And, much like every other outlandish, delusional talking point the Obama Administration burps up, they will hang onto this fiction no matter what Putin does.
But watch Obama’s face during the interview.
Hit the mute so you don’t have to endure his words. I’ve taken the bullet and transcribed it for you. But just hit play and watch his face.
He’s angry. He is seriously pissed off that Kroft would dare to defy the “Putin acted out of weakness” myth.
But that isn’t the face of someone angry that their lie is being defied.
Look at this grumpy puss:
He’s incredulous. That is the face of incredulity. That is the face of somebody who actually believes the lie that Putin is weak.
Obama really does believe that he is coming off as the superior leader here. He really does believe the lie that the White House has been peddling to us. Which makes me suspect that this lie that Putin is weak and Obama is top dog isn’t being told for our benefit, but for Barack’s benefit.
Mark Levin is right. There is something seriously, psychological wrong with Barack Obama.
It’s one thing to peddle propaganda.
It’s another thing entirely to fall for it yourself.
