President Obama demonstrates how a REAL leader responds to protesters.

Did you see that?

President Obama seemed to get a little irritated at his own supporters for jumping all over this poor guy, and actually came to the guy's defense.

That is what you call "leadership."

Now contrast that with the post down below showing how Donald Trump deals with protesters.

And if that was not stark enough, Trump also mischaracterized the President's response in order to attack him.

Courtesy of Slate: 

Complaining about how the media always focuses on protesters at his rallies, Trump said Obama “was talking to the protester, screaming at him, really screaming at him,” adding that “if I spoke the way Obama spoke to the protester, they would say, ‘He became unhinged!’ ” He then reiterated his point, saying that Obama “spent so much time screaming at this protester and, frankly, it was a disgrace.” 

Sounds shocking, until you look at what actually happened and start wondering whether Trump really is living in a parallel reality where up is down and defending is attacking. There was indeed a pro-Trump protester who interrupted Obama’s speech Friday afternoon, but the president chastised the crowd for booing him and defended the Trump supporter’s right to free speech. The protester, who was wearing a military uniform, stood up in the bleachers at a get-out-the-vote rally and was immediately booed and heckled by the gathered Hillary Clinton supporters. Obama immediately tried to get the crowd to calm down. “Hold up! Hold up! Hold up! Hold up!” Obama shouted again and again as the crowd ignored his pleas. The president put on a professorial tone, clearly frustrated by the way the crowd was reacting to the protester. “Everybody! Hey!” Obama yelled. “I told you to be focused and you’re not focused right now.”

The president then asked the crowd to “sit down and be quiet for a second” and proceeded with a lecture on why they shouldn’t get worked up over a protester. “You’ve got an older gentleman who is supporting his candidate. He’s not doing nothing. You don’t have to worry about him. This is what I mean about folks not being focused,” Obama said. “First of all, we live in a country that respects free speech. Second of all, it looks like maybe he might have served in our military and we ought to respect that. Third of all, he was elderly and we got to respect our elders. And fourth of all, don’t boo—vote!”

(Here is a video that shows side by side Trump accusing Obama of "screaming" at the protester, and the President's actual response.)

So not only does Donald Trump accuse the President of being abusive to a protester at a rally, but when he is confronted with a protester at HIS rally he sicks the crowd on them and then runs like a candy ass little bitch at the mere hint of danger to himself.

Seriously, HOW in the WORLD can anybody support this guy?

I am just sickened that there are people in the country who still do.

    I am sad that we must lose Barack Obama as our President The man is pure class. "When they go low, we go high."

    Gryphon and all: Breaking news FBI found nothing having read all emails. Same decision as July.
    So sad they provided ammo to Trump with last weeks premature announcement. I smell a rat, Giuliani.

    1. Anonymous12:00 PM

      Trump and Giuliani need to be put in front of a firing squad - anti Americans and unAmericans!

      Hillary Clinton is the WINNER and has always been - in spite of Trump, the media and CNN constantly trying to smear her!

      She's already received my vote!

    2. Anonymous12:01 PM

      Such a rat, and he'd better be investigated or at least be shunned--such a jerk, and his 9/11 coattails use is such a disgrace.

      It's sick how Trump's people have continued to claim a coming indictment. Last night Trump's final rally in Denver was on Fox, the whole 45 minutes, and Trump was going on and on about Hillary's so-called crimes and indictment coming. I didn't listen to his rally just now but have to assume it wasn't amended and that any he has today will say the same crap.

      People should read, too, what Jake Tapper said to Conway on his show today. She is so fucking smug about the lying.

      Sad, sad will be if Comey and anyone else gets by with this.

      Kellyanne Conway is doubting the FBI went through "hundreds of thousands of emails in a week". She is maintaining Clinton committed crimes. LOL she asserts they "have Clinton on the run" campaigning in different states. Such pride in their pathological lies taking credit for Clinton and surrogates campaigning to the end.
      Kellyanne claims the FBI decision does not change the facts, then she lists Trump campaigns lies and spin.

    5. Anonymous12:44 PM

      Kellyanne has a lot of spinning to do. Can't assassinate someone who doesn't have a title, you know, a nobody like Donald Trump.

      According to Snowden (yeah I HATE having to say that) the FBI probably determined this in a matter of hours. Which means they could have made this announcement last Monday.

      Why did they wait so long? So that the damage that was done couldn't be undone?

      I so hope the FBI is PURGED after this election. They certainly need a thorough housecleaning.

      "Reports indicated that nearly every email on the laptop was a duplicate of messages the agency had already examined ― something NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden said the FBI would’ve been able to figure out within hours."

      "If Snowden is correct, the real question isn’t why the examination of the emails was over so quickly, it’s why it took so long to clear up the mess Comey made with his Oct. 28 letter to Congress. "

      Well, since they had the laptop for weeks before Comey made the first announcement, the question is really, why anything was said at all? They could have gone through these e-mails, determined they were duplicates and that was the end of it weeks before Comey released that letter.

      So, yeah. The FBI is corrupt and Comey is lying through his fucking Republican teeth. He needs to resign and the FBI needs to be purged of all of these Trump-supporting partisan assholes.

    Man, he will be missed. Love the Obamas.

    I hope to see them visit the WH after Hillary's in. Some important dinner now and then. And the trashy wannabe Trumps can only wish.

    WOW. So, Comey has now said that Clinton's in the clear on the email thing--the Weiner laptop emails are not a big deal.

  4. Anonymous11:58 AM

    I so hope Trump has a major heart attack and leaves this earth SOON! He's pure evil!

    1. Leland12:39 PM

      11:58, I prefer to not wish any harm on a person, regardless of whether or not they deserve it, but in this case I think you are making it too easy on him.

      Personally, I wish he would survive the trouncing he is going to get and be miserable the rest of his life as his "empire" and money crashes and his children desert him when he needs them the most simply because he can't fill their pockets any longer.

      I feel he needs to experience what he has been doing to others when he destroyed them.

    2. Anonymous2:53 PM

      Yes, normally I would wish a long drawn out battle with cancer for Donnie, but it would be much better to hit him where it would "hurt" him the most: his business and brand go down the toilet slowly because all he cares about is himself and money.

    3. Anonymous3:24 PM

      I'd just like to see his empire collapse, little by little, so that in ten years of so, his kids have to get actual jobs and work for their livings. I'd like to see his youngest have to go to public school and work his way through college.

      Melania will be happy.

      Until the creditors take all of the money, real estate, stocks, bonds and anything else. She'll be lucky if she can keep the clothes on her back.

      I wonder if Trump is smart enough to "homestead" his space in Trump Tower so it can't be seized and sold to pay off his creditors.

    Easy to be cool-headed when you've got reporters protecting you and others killing opponents, figuratively speaking. If he were Republican, he'd be no where NEAR the white house. FACT. You'd all go APESHIT over this life.

    Observation: Sarah's look today is identical to how she looked in 2007. Same highlights same face that hasn't aged since then, same clothes. I noticed back then that at some point in Oct (possibly nov) 2007, her, Bristol and Willow all got the same highlights. In Hawaii pics from nov 2007, all 3 had the same hair.

      Trump is a brazen liar. Alas his supporters probably were drooling for more lapping up another pathological lie.

    I have the utmost respect for this man and all he's accomplished. Never prouder to give my two votes to the same man.

    O/T Remember the sugar coated shit sandwich of a letter Comey wrote to Congress regarding Huma and her Wiener ex husband's emails? Well Comey just wrote another letter, saying, basically, there's no "There" here. That sound you hear are GOP heads going splodey splodey everywhere. Any seismic activity reported near the dead lake??? Life is good, Vote Hillary and toss trump offstage.

    1. Anonymous11:12 PM

      And Snowden said the FBI could have determined that within a few hours even using an old lap. So why the weeks before the letter and the week after the letter to determine they were duplicates?

      Because...the FBI wanted to influence the election but remain "blameless".

      "FBI Director James Comey, with his surprise announcement Sunday that the bureau had found nothing new in the latest version of its investigation into Hillary Clinton, has now managed to infuriate both halves of the country, convincing them the nation’s premier law enforcement agency has unfairly tilted the campaign.

      Comey’s entrance into the election, according to Tim Weiner, author of Enemies, the definitive history of the Federal Bureau of Investigations, has set the FBI back to the dark days of J. Edgar Hoover, when the agency operated outside the confines of Congress, the White House or the law itself."

      "The problem comes when Comey doesn’t recognize that the modern FBI is supposed to operate within constitutional limits, such as on Friday, when revelations surfaced that the FBI director had defied Justice Department protocol as well as guidance from the attorney general in updating Congress on a potential new investigation.

      “If you don’t have an FBI that looks to the law and the constitution and the strictures of the Justice Department, then you are going back to the days of J. Edgar Hoover and you are putting our 240-year experiment with American democracy at risk,” he said. “The law is not what the FBI says it is. The law is what the courts and the constitution says it is.” "

      And let's not forget who the FBI is NOT pursuing.

      "“Here’s the surprise to me, as somebody who has studied the conduct of the FBI for years,” he said. “You have a candidate in this election whose campaign manager came under investigation for some very unusual and profitable connections in a foreign country. You also have a candidate who appears, on the evidence produced by excellent reporters, to have bent the tax laws of the US to the breaking point. You have a candidate who is scheduled to stand trial in a civil racketeering case, involving a purported university, and you have a candidate who has bragged about a pattern of sexual assault. Where’s the long arm of the law there?”

      The Trump campaign’s efforts at voter suppression, he said, also may merit a closer look. “You have a campaign that appears set to act in defiance of what’s left of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 on Election Day. Where’s the long arm of the law to protect the American people there?” "

    Saw an interview with Obama by Bill Maher. An interview he always wanted by the way. Bill that is. Anyways, I saw why the white right have been against Obama. He's sensible! He has that no nonsense weed out the bullshit attitude. The Republicans on the other hand live and die by drama.
