Republicans Accuse Obama of Using Position as President to Lead Country

Spearheading the offensive was Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas), who charged the President with the “wanton exploitation of powers that are legally granted to him under the U.S. Constitution.”

Calling him the “Law Professor-in-Chief,” Rep. Stockman accused Mr. Obama of “manipulating a little-known section of the Constitution,” Article II, which outlines the power of the President.

“President Obama looks down the list of all of the powers that are legally his and he’s like a kid in a candy store,” Rep. Stockman said. “It’s nauseating.”

It's official: Idiocracy is no longer satire.

I never expected #idiocracy to become a documentary.

kind of a sketchy site to be linking to, no?

abcnews.com.co? How does ABC News permit that site to exist?

Snopes

That site shows up on a great many hoax entries in Snopes. They've been around a few months at least, but I suspect ABC's legal department moves sluggishly on such matters.

well, duh. The pictures were obviously of someone far less bloated than Drumpf.

well we are in the satire thread so I don't think anyone thought it was real, just that OG's link goes to a sketchy site.

It's funny because Rock Hudson asked Nancy for help.
Haha.
Laugh-tear.

Man Worried Harassing Messages He Sending On Dating App Getting Lost Among Abuse From Other Guys

NORRISTOWN, PA—Saying he wasn’t sure whether writing to them was even worth the effort at this point, local man Luke Browning expressed concern to reporters Tuesday that the offensive messages he’s been sending women through OkCupid are getting lost among all the harassment from other male users. “I can only imagine how many obscene comments and explicit threats the average woman must receive from guys on here each day—how can they even begin to tell any of us apart?” said Browning, admitting that his requests for nude photos and the uninvited pictures of his genitals that he sends are likely no different from the dozens of other vulgar sexual solicitations filling female users’ inboxes. “I’m beginning to think that every time I say to a woman ‘What’s your f*cking problem?’ or ‘Suit yourself, bitch’ after she doesn’t respond right away, my notes are just blending in with all the messages from other guys telling her she’s a dumb slut and should kill herself. But it seems like there’s only so many different ways you can let a complete stranger know she’s not really that cute and is lucky to even be talking to you.” Browning added that, in an effort to stand out from his peers, he’s considering putting in the extra effort of badgering his matches on Facebook after they’ve blocked him on the app.

Sorry Bernie Bros, Your Candidate Just Doesn’t Have The Foreign Policy Experience Necessary To Prop Up A Pro-Western Dictatorship

I realize it is satire, but this is precisely what I think of when folks espouse the virtues of Clinton's "experience". An experienced neoconservative is still a neoconservative.

Yeah, but why settle for an Oliver North when you can go full Kissinger?

You never go full Kissinger.

I've seen a lot of this, from a lot of different religious backgrounds.

#DumpForTrump Wants You On The Can To Protest The Man

A cheeky video for the hashtag #dumpfortrump was posted Thursday accusing Donald Trump of pooping on the American people and encouraging his adversaries to poop back with a toilet selfie.

If, for some envious reason, you've missed what's been happening in the US with the GOP for the last few months, or in Europe with the refugee situation, I recommend Look Who's Back, a funny little film about what would happen if Hitler re-appeared now.

"All over people changing their votes
Along with their overcoats
If Adolf Hitler flew in today
They'd send a limousine anyway"

The Clash, "White Man In Hammersmith Palais", 1978 and still relevant.

Supposedly Austria is close to electing a president from a post-neo-nazi party today.
Maybe it is too late.

The book is good. I haven't seen the movie, but the book is from Hitler's viewpoint.

Adding a small bit of levity to the Brexit debacle, here's yet another piece of unexpected fallout:

UK forced to give up favored pastime of calling Americans stupid.

Enough people did that SCS responded:

The game isn't fortunately called "European Union Truck Simulator", so all is good.

UK and Scottish Paint Jobs are ~52% off in the Steam Summer Sale! (We didn't know the results, we promise.)

Take care, British residents.

You do know this is the satire thread, right?
