Obama’s Latest Photo Op Shows Why The Global Community Doesn’t Take Him Seriously
I’m sorry, but this is just sad. We are embroiled in a global conflict, and the supposed “leader of the free world” is taking photo ops at a grade school, making statements about the invasion of Ukraine on a kids’ rug.
Meanwhile, Putin incredibly denied that any Russian troops are in Ukraine, and John McCain gives a fiery speech railing on Obama for his weakness. Somehow, President Romper Room actually thought it was a good idea to set up a lectern on a grade school alphabet mat when the entire world is seeing the consequences of his weakness.

Is Obama just giving in? This was the guy known for dramatic stagecraft and brilliant political framing, and this is what we get? Just amazing.
