Go fark yourself, McConnell, IMHO.

Mitch didn't call him "boy" or "Coltrane"?

Obama can't speak in private about the Federal government now?

McConnell knows that Obama is still living rent free in Trump's head.  Maybe in McConnell's too.

I see more "leaks" coming.

/did obama name any names?
//because i don't think he named any names

Obama is a civilian, you goddamn hick.

Republican scumsuckers are selective about who has 1st Amendment rights.
 
2020-05-12 12:33:12 PM  
Let's see just what Obama said:

"The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed - about the justice department dropping charges against Michael Flynn," Obama reportedly said. "And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury [in fact Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI] just getting off scot-free. That's the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic - not just institutional norms - but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk.

"And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we've seen in other places."


If Mitch is upset, it must be because it's true.  Nothing hurts like the truth.

"Mind yo place, boy."

Point to all the class Republicans and Conservatives in general have demonstrated in the last four years.

You won't be able to you garbage human beings.

Did Mitch say something?  I couldn't hear him over his Moscow Music.

Please, elaborate.

"obamagate"?

It boggles my mind that anyone could consider President Obama classless. The dude is probably one of the greatest statesman in history.

For farks sale just look at the superficial stuff. He's not a goddamn fat pig. He wears clothes that fit. He at the very least shows respect and tolerated everyone around him even if he doesn't agree with them politically.

I honestly thought Mitch did something right for once when I started reading the headline. I don't know what came over me.

Former presidents are not allowed to criticize current US policy and emergency response; that's a former vice president's job.

I mean, going ahead and saying the next terrorist attack was going to be Obama's fault is fair; saying that dismantling your pandemic response team hindered the current pandemic response is highly offensive.

Moscow Mitch is just upset that Obama is actually make good on making a president in office a 'one-term' president. Something he was never able to do.

Think Trump is going to stfu about his successor once he's carried kicking and screaming out of the White House?

The tradition of respect for the office is dead. Just doesn't know it yet.
 
2020-05-12 1:05:23 PM  
Fark Mitch. He's always edged about as close to calling Obama an 'uppity n*BONG*' an you damn well know he's a white supremacist.

I hope he gets eaten by his own kind.

Having read The Presidents Club, recommended by a Farker, I think the reason ex Presidents rarely speak out against their successors is that they understand the pressures and sympathise and almost always want to help and support the current guy. They're at a point where party doesn't really matter, and you only have to see how close GWB and the Obamas are, or Clinton and Bush Sr.
Trump never joined the club, never wanted to even though I believe they offered. And his behaviour and actions go way beyond the usual stuff Presidents end up embroiled in.
 
2020-05-12 1:05:26 PM  
Can we just get over this notion that Republicans care about the constitution?  Hey Turtle-fark, is there anyone else you think doesn't deserve the First Amendment?
 
2020-05-12 1:05:30 PM  
Mitch complaining that a public figure violated norms? Did he just upgrade the bulb in his projector?

F you Mitch.
 
2020-05-12 1:05:47 PM  
Mitch, why can't you just lay in the middle of the busiest interstate in Kentucky?

Hey, dip-stick, Obama, in your mind, can't say shiat about you and Trump's disaster-prone work, but Trump can certainly say anything and everything bad about Obama, right?  Is there some black and white reason why Obama must "shut his mouth" and Trump can run his orange suck?

"I'll take thinly-veiled euphemisms for 'uppity' for 1000, Alex."

In a year when the orange rag is raging from  wherever he can find a good burnt steak with katsup (no way that farker touches the Heinz stuff being it is owned by Democrats), I'm curios how many shiatbag Republicans will remember this moment and their hypocrisy towards Obama when Trump is dumping on Biden.
 
2020-05-12 1:06:18 PM  
Better luck next time, polio.
 
2020-05-12 1:06:29 PM  
Obama didn't make these as public remarks. It was a semi-private phone call that was leaked.
 
2020-05-12 1:06:57 PM  
"Mitch the B*tch" McConnell says what?
 
2020-05-12 1:07:55 PM  
Because Trump will not criticize the next administration out of respe...
Oh shiat! He'll be tweeting and yelling from a nationally syndicated AM radio microphone every day next year.
Hey Mitch, fark YOU!!
Trump is where the history of former presidents takes a hard turn.
This way to Derpsville!
The Pied Piper of Red State mouthbreathers!
 
2020-05-12 1:08:10 PM  
On the contrary, Obama should have said more and sooner.

You're always good for a sensible chuckle.

FTFA: "In an extraordinary statement against a former president, the Republican Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has told Barack Obama to "keep his mouth shut" over criticism of Donald Trump, calling him "classless".

That's farking rich considering the shiat that Trump spews on a daily basis.

Also FTFA: "Last week, remarks by Obama were leaked to Yahoo News that were highly critical about Trump and his administration, seeming to break a convention in US politics that former occupants of the White House rarely criticize their successors."

Fark that. All conventions are now out of the window. Trump relentlessly talks shiat about Obama.  Sorry Orange Toddler, it's high time that people start realizing this isn't a one way street.

I hope Obama lets loose and tells Mitch to Fark right off and goes full in on calling Trump a failing baby.

/won't happen, but I can dream.

That.  Actually makes me angry.  Not my usual "Those farkers.  Our shiat" anger.  Actually angry.  Good job, Mitch.  You colossal colostomy bag in a turtle shell.

Yes. But he's black and therefore uppity.

This entire spectacle just scraped the thin layer of bullshiat that was costing the unabashed steaming racism that led to Trump.

Same idiots who are busy demeaning and insulting Michelle Obama for "marrying up" while ignoring she's a goddamn lawyer and powerhouse in her own right.

Ain't no reason to be had here.

Weird, can't imagine why mitch would have so much more of a vitriolic reaction to this particular former presidents criticism of trump, than he would any other previous presidents criticism. Surely there's a logical explanation as to why he would hold this particular president to such a different standard than any other president. Hmmm guess we'll need Sherlock frickin Holmes to figure this one out. 🙄
