Recently Barack Obama and I set aside our differences because we just found out both our mothers happened to be named Martha. Now if THAT can’t bring people together I don’t know what else could. (I know, right.)
Anyway, Obama agreed to put some current events into context in this EXCLUSIVE one-on-one with Balladeer’s Blog.
BALLADEER’s BLOG: Just today even MORE bombshells from Clinton’s emails showing Hillary running a “pay for play” scam in which convenient “contributions” laundered through the criminal Clinton Foundation would earn donors official positions, either in the near future or in a future Hillary Administration. What is your take on that?
OBAMA: Well, as you’re fond of pointing out, I myself emerged from the cesspool of Chicago politics so I’m no stranger to graft and corruption on a large scale but DAMN! This bitch just couldn’t control her greed and was so damn blatant about the corruption she wallowed in. I tried to tell her that, though our media would do everything they could to protect her, she had to at LEAST leave room for a little plausible deniability.
BB: What was her reaction?
OBAMA: She told me that she was making money illegally back when I was going out with cheerleaders and to shut up.
BB: A paraphrase of Moe Greene to Michael Corleone in the movie, right?
OBAMA: Yes. I said to her “Oh, WOMAN! Stealing a line from The Godfather? Do you have ANY class?”
BB: I can tell you’re morally outraged about this.
OBAMA: Damn right! She needs to make her pop culture references more diverse. I told her if she makes just ONE MORE remark taken from a movie by some white guy I would throw up my hands and be done with her.
BB: You realize that a novel came before the movie, right?
OBAMA: Say what, now?
BB: Never mind. What about the rising questions over Hillary’s health?
OBAMA: Listen, dude, all I know is that after each public appearance she makes, her staff disassembles her, packs her in her crate and ships her along to the next stop on the campaign.
