Super Stupid


Here’s one for the ages from a sitting U.S. congressman.

It’s not entirely clear what his point is.

Is he trying to say President Obama should be more like Hitler?

To address but not obsesses over this nontroversy — if you’re super concerned that the president, or a senior member of his cabinet, did not attend a staged photo op in Paris on very short notice, I don’t want to know you.

Even if the event was not staged, it would have been embarrassing, from my perspective, if someone from the administration had attended. As many others have pointed out, the world leaders photographed at the front of the pack have a record of jailing or killing bloggers and journalists.

And let’s be real — if the president or someone from the administration had attended the photo op, that would have been the controversy.

“Why is President Obama wasting taxpayer money to attend staged photo ops?”

“Why is the president standing next to these enemies of the press?”

“The president attends Paris rally while conducting a war on whistleblowers”

But let’s get back to an indisputable fact: Representative Randy Weber (R-TX) is a moron.

Update… Weber finally deleted his tweet, but the quote above remains accurate. Here’s a screencapture.

    charlie brooker summed up the phenomenon of “controversy” quite well here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4mnUAWmROE

    And let’s be real — if the president or someone from the administration had attended the photo op, that would have been the controversy.

    He didn’t attend, and that’s a controversy (to some). If he attended, yes, that would have been the controversy. If he’d sent a a politely worded regrets and gift basket, if he’d made a speech in lieu of attending, if he’d decided to take vacation and get as far from Paris as possible, it would have been someone’s controversy.

    Because that’s how the idiots roll.

    Randy Weber is the same nitwit who tweeted during the 2014 State of the Union that Barack Obama was “Kommandant-In-Chef” [sic] and “the Socialist dictator,” so he’s just an all-round classy guy.

    Really, what was the point here? I think the real point is that bigoted cocksuckers like Randy Weber will go to any ignorant sounding point to link Barack Obama with Hitler. That is getting to be a tiresome and tedious republican meme. Should have anyone from the administration been at that rally? No. Pointless and meaningless. And frankly, none of our affair.

    How is this even a thing? The US ambassador to France was there… isn’t that what we have ambassadors for? But the President was supposed to travel to Paris for an outdoor photo op on 36 hours notice because something something argle garble. Seriously, our public discourse is like listening to the inmates in an insane asylum.
