You Won’t Believe Why President Obama Won’t Visit the Border


On Wednesday, while in Dallas, President Obama was asked why he didn’t visit the border while there. Shockingly, President Selfie said, “This isn’t theater. This is a problem. I’m not interested in photo ops; I’m interested in solving a problem.”

Um, since WHEN?! Theater and photo ops are all Obama has! It’s pretty much the only way he governs. Frankly, I’m surprised his team didn’t stage an event for Obama to be pictured feeding and clothing the poor, hungry children crossing our border, with a big address to the American people telling us sob stories with tears in his eyes, pleading for amnesty. Think: Sarah McLachlan ASPCA commercials.

Or I can totally picture them having the kids all crowd around Obama for a selfie in an attempt to reclaim the record for most retweeted photo on Twitter from Ellen Degeneres.

In response to his bizarre claim to spurn political theater, Digitas Daily helpfully put together a round up of the many Obama photo ops over the years as a reminder:

Yep. That’s a lot of photo ops for a guy who claims not to be interested in photo ops!
