I watched it last night. It was so refreshing to sit and listen to him after having to listen to our current POTUS for what seems like an eternity now.

An emotional Letterman practically teared up at the end of the hour, telling Obama that though he he had been taught to always respect the office of the presidency, "without a doubt, you are the first president I truly and fully respect."
And now reflect on who is in the Office now....  ugh.

Top Ten Reasons to Watch Fox News

1.  Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
2.  Because maybe Hillary Clinton IS the Devil.
3.  Sometimes you need to hear the morning news from a vacuous blonde with no morals.
4.  Because it takes a LOT of imagination to back Donald Trump's position, then back the exact opposite position when he changes his mind.
5.  It's an effective object lesson to show your child what people look like when they are dead inside.
6.  Because, if the rapture ever happens, Fox and Friends may be the only people left on Earth.
7.  Because maybe Barack Obama DID start World War Two.
8.  Because it would be satisfying to see Tucker Carlson start puberty.
9.  Sometimes you want to watch a news channel that is fair and balanced.  When you get tired of that, there is Fox News.
10.  Because it will make Vladimir Putin very happy...

I miss having an adult in the Big Chair.

I didn't always agree with him, and in some cases I even thought he did the wrong thing, but I never suspected that he was acting without rhyme or reason...

Yeah, but when you're incapable of ever admitting that you might be wrong about anything, it' hard to accept when the president is smarter than you are.  That's why people still support this guy.  Well, that and stigginit.

The problem is, while we all understand the shorthand that phrase means, it's literally incorrect...and that's the ACTUAL problem. We DO live on the same planet as Fox News viewers...we have to live with them, live next to them (or maybe even in the same house with them), work with them, be in the same society with them, HAVE THEIR SAME PRESIDENT AND SCOTUS AND LAWS.  Their actions directly effect us, we don't have the luxury of them being on another planet.

Letterman has been alive long enough to have seen one or two other respectable presidents, right?

But I guess he was too young to truly remember Eisenhower and Kennedy got killed too soon, LBJ got us in Nam, Nixon, Ford pardoned Nixon, Jimmy Carter unfairly gets a bad rep for his term, Reagan was a lying sack of Iran contra shiat, Bush was up to his eyes on that sack of shiat, Clinton got a blow job, Bush 2 was a war criminal... guess his comment checks out.

From my aunt and uncle's social media feed late today:

1 - why can't he just go away.
2 - people voted for Trump let him do what WE asked
3 - of course the lamestream media doesn't want you not to know the truth
4- What about emails, benghazi, Seth Rich...

Tonight I'll get a phone call from my mother reminding me I shouldn't post "you're a special kind of stupid" meme on family members walls. Even if I'm right.

Your mom is right. If they are family, you have to add a "bless your heart" to that meme. Otherwise everyone will think you were raised by wolves.

A few years ago, I was taking some courses at a place that constantly played Fox News, and I came to this exact realization. It's not that they've got a different take on the news, they're showing an entirely different reality.

I don't remember what was going on in the real world in the summer of 2012. But I can tell you without a doubt that the biggest question on Fox News was "Will Eric Holder survive the fallout from Fast and Furious, and is the Obama Administration trying to subvert the Second Amendment?"

Every. Damn. Day.

This.  The people who blindly follow President Shiathole Bonespurs believe whatever he wants them to believe. Obama was the best president I could even imagine, but there are things he got dead wrong.  Even the ACA has the problem of strengthening the healthcare is tied to employee relationship.  But, he had rationale that was reasonable and transparent.

/and Hillary Clinton would have been a reasonable, sane president.  But Fox News, Pizzagate, Benghazi.  I'd like to see Trump be forced to sit through twelve hours of questions from the dems, but he couldn't handle it with his health.  The secret service would consider it an attempted assasination.

Because of your poorly chosen user name, everyone is reminded of two things.

1.  You're an ignorant racist troll.

2.  Obama is our greatest president.

And that will never change, no matter what you actually post.

I missed it - am going to ask the heir to our tiny kingdom if he can help a mom out.

Saw a clip of Obama speaking about his daughters and - yeah, I teared up.

I'll wonder, now and then while I'm still drawing breath, what we might have done if certain folks in Washington hadn't actively worked against him - and now are undoing what he did get done.

Sometimes I flip back and forth between news stations - Fox no longer qualifies, often so off pace and topic it's jarring.

Miss you in the big chair Obama - happy to see you being Dad-guy.

Hey there, cheerful!

It must really draw your skin tight to know he's going to be remembered as the first black POTUS, that thousands of kids just now in cradles will memorize his name as part of our collective history, that his daughters will take advantage of opportunities (and likely excel) you will never know,  that he will remain ranked as one of the most popular to ever hold that job - that his wife is more popular than Trump's entire family, combined. That his administration was clean of overt scandal and that he remains well-respected on a global scale.

As a bonus - he's got a good three decades left to get his mojo on.

I hope you get acid indigestion every time his name is mentioned from now until your ears stop working.

We've made it far too easy for people to live in bubbles.

Let's say that you are socially awkward, and prefer pretend humans to real humans.  Well, you can go online and find plenty of groups to support that.  Waifu encourages romantic love for pillows with animated girls printed on them.  There is a political party you can join, the Inanimate Objects Party.  And a religion you can join... a Russian cult that worships Gadget the animated Disney chipmunk.

And because you surround yourself online with other Waifu IOP cultists, you think your increasingly extreme beliefs are more common then they are, and hence healthy and normal.  And because it is taboo for Americans to talk about sex, religion, or politics, the people that you interact with will not contradict that, allowing you to further radicalize.

And then you blow up a Federal building because Toonami got cancelled after they ran an uncensored hentai program, which you insist was a false flag operation by Normie State operatives, and everyone is all surprised - "he was so quiet" - except your fellow Waifu IOP cultists, to whom you become a martyr.

That's Fox News and their viewers in a nutshell.

I was in the car last month and listened to NPR do a whole "are ufo's aliens? mmmmm could be, I mean, ya never know!" segment.

I've been watching CNN descend into an unabashed unhinged mess. I think Don Lemon has dark circkles under his eyes. He looks like a zombie. Getting scolded by Jimmy Carter likely didn't help. When you're looking and sounding more haggard and ragged than Alex Jones or Hannity, it's time to check yourself.
