Barack Obama Thinks Giving Back Part of His Salary Will Shut Up the Screeching Howler Monkeys

News

Barack Obama, the president of these here United States, has given back five percent of his salary in solidarity with the most tragic victims the world has ever known: children what didn't get to go on their White House tours. So that's ... nice? We guess? But if anybody in the administrationthinks that will make Sean Hannity and Ghost Andrew Breitbart stop hitting them, they probably caught brain-eating syphilis from the Stupidest Man on the Internet, Jim Hoft.


The White House came up with the 5 percent figure to approximate the level of spending cuts to nondefense federal agencies that took effect that day.

“The president has decided that to share in the sacrifice being made by public servants across the federal government that are affected by the sequester, he will contribute a portion of his salary back to the Treasury,” the official said.

Word of the president’s decision came a day after Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter disclosed that they would return a share of their salaries commensurate with the pay lost by the department’s civilian employees who are expected to be furloughed for 14 days before the end of the fiscal year.

Prezzy and Mrs. O already give more than 20 percent of their adjusted gross income (that sweet $400k salary plus loads more in royalties, because we elected a goddamn WRITER to be our National Hero No. One, just like CUBA) to dumb charities that aren't even the Mormon church. Which is nice! We at Wonket love charity, and accept it gratefully!

But the people who are bitching about the fact that the Kenyan Impostor and his Bride go to restaurants on Valentine's Day -- and who once complained that Mrs. Obama's mother, by moving into the White House to help care for the girls, would cost taxpayers money by using electricity and water -- aren't exactly going to be swayed by this teeny bit of belt-not-that-tightening, and we can't help feeling like Nobumer is falling for their stupid game.

Two thumbs meh.

And now for some very serious TUT TUTTING! It's time again for Republicans to make sad words about President Treason McTraitorpants selling out the country. This time they are seriously concerned, nay even deeply troubled, that Donald Trump would stand next to Vladimir Putin and pretend the Russians didn't hack the 2016 election. These patriotic Republicans are shocked, SHOCKED! Well, not, like, upset enough to do anything about it -- not with a fascist carpooler to jam into the Supreme Court. But they've got tweets, so it's all good!

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.
