JUST FOR LAUGHS

After I posted WHAT SHOULD WE DO WITH OUR HATRED? — PART 3, I heard a statement from former President Barack Obama that I think provides some confirmation of the accuracy of that post. It is always good to have an authority who agrees with you.

Former President Barack Obama resurfaced on Friday and took a shot at Fox News viewers, saying they’re “living on a different planet” than people who consume mainstream media.

Obama made the remarks on the premiere of the new monthly Netflix series “My next guest needs no introduction with David Letterman,” which hit the streaming service on Friday morning. Early in the episode, Obama asked Letterman about his retirement but the veteran talk show host quickly let the former president know who was boss. (continued here)

Here is a fun video.

  1. Ha ha Tom, well played. I have to say I agree with Obama that Fox News and NPR listers are living on different planets. I wouldn’t just leave it at Fox News and NPR though, anyone who gets their news from outside the mainstream Liberal media has a vastly different outlook then those that default solely to the ABC networks, CNN, WashPo and NYT, etc… to be informed.

    As a Conservative I think it’s a compliment that Obama thinks my reality is different from his. 🙂

  2. I had read / heard that same remark by our former president and I for one was both hurt and offended.
    Yes I will read or watch Fox.
    But I also look at other sights as well—the liberal BBC for instance-.
    And like most everyone else, I try to sort out what is actual and what is not…
    So for a former president of the United States to tell a broad swath of his previous charges that they are apparently from a different planet because they choose…as in freedom of choice here, to watch or read a news outlet that he just so happens not to like, is irreprehensible.
    But then again Obama was playing in the ocean with Richard Branson when he left office so what can we say…..

    1. What is sad is that the Liberal Democrats almost exclusively watch Liberal Democrat news media. What don’t know as a result is a problem. Conservative Republicans really need to start advertising the facts that dispute the Liberal Democrat narrative on Liberal Democrat channels and shows.

  3. Beauty is in the eyes of the planet you behold. Obama’s eyes are on Venus, Trump’s eyes are on earth, in my opinion.

    Same analogy of location for Fox vs.CNN.

    Hannity vs.Letterman.

    News and politics has become so distant and divisive, it is pathetic.

    All one can do now is laugh about the distances to preserve their sanity.

    Regards and goodwill blogging.
