Obama Trolls Bachmann and the Worldnetdaily

During the White House Correspondents Dinner last weekend, President Obama could barely contain himself when making fun of Michele Bachmann for claiming that his policies had made the end of the world and return of Jesus imminent, which she said was a good thing even while criticizing him for it.

“Michele Bachmann actually predicted I would bring about the biblical end of days. Now that’s a legacy — that’s big. I mean, Lincoln, Washington — they didn’t do that.”

It’s a good line and had the predictable result of making the wingnuts sputter incoherently, as I imagine was what the president was hoping for:

“Rarely has this nation witnessed the kind of hubris, arrogance and callousness as we did at the President’s Correspondents Dinner. President Obama and his left-wing supporters in the media think it is absolutely hilarious that his policies could have fostered in an apocalyptic atmosphere in the earth,” said Richardson, author of New York Times-bestseller “The Islamic Antichrist” and director of the film “End Times Eye Witness.”

“But having only recently returned from Iraq to minister to dozens of families displaced from their homes by ISIS, I can most certainly testify that for them (there are now over 2 millions refugees and displaced peoples across the region) the end of their previous world has indeed arrived,” he continued. “Instead of laughing and mocking, our president and his supporters should be weeping because of the unfathomable agony and chaos that his foreign policy through the Middle East has produced.”…

Joseph Farah, WND founder, chief editor and CEO, believes Obama’s mocking of Bachmann is just the latest example of his disdain for anyone who actually believes what he reads in the Bible and is willing to discuss it publicly.

“Michele Bachmann, like me, was profoundly impacted by the stunning revelations of the New York Times-bestseller ‘The Harbinger’ by Jonathan Cahn about the way America has been inadvertently re-enacting an ancient script written and played out during the fall of Israel,” Farah said.

“To Obama and most other non-Christians, this is just silly superstitious stuff – the kind of thing you make jokes about for cheap laughs at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

Yep, you’re right. This is sully superstitious stuff. And we’re going to mock it and mock you for repeating it. Sorry (not sorry).

    I had never even heard of Jonathan Cahn and The Harbinger before this. Well, you know the nice thing about such a story is that he’ll be able to republish it as a second edition when Hilary (or the next Democrat if not her) is elected President.

    Wow I had no idea that universal health care was the harbinger of doom.

  • NitricAcid

    And most Christians think it’s laughable, too.

  • karmacat

    He is also conveniently forgetting that it was Bush and Cheney who started the Iraq war. It was also Bush that agreed to withdraw US troops by a certain date.

  • jimmyfromchicago

    We’ll know it really is the End of Days when Farah stops hawking shitty books.

    “…the unfathomable agony and chaos that his foreign policy through the Middle East has produced.”

    Because it was like Disneyland over there before Obama.

  • NitricAcid

    Of course it was, Wreck. Rose petals and freedom!!

    Um, Joe … the “fall of Israel” (whatever the heck that is) didn’t bring about the “End Times.” Why should we think, even if the “fall of America” is immanent (snicker), that it would bring about the “End Times”? Silly superstition? Just because it has been predicted every year for the last two thousand without it happening? Perish the thought!

  • marcus

    That’s not funny! You know what was funny? Bush looking all-around under furniture and fixtures for WMDs that couldn’t be found. Now that was funny!

    The Apocalyptics scare me. Not only do they wish for the end of all things, they think the event will be WONDERFUL, what with jesus showing up and such. (Granted, 2000 years overdue.)

    You know why they scare me? We just had a fucking President, hand on the button, who bought this shit so far as to believe he was the chosen one of god. There are mobs of nihilists just like him all over the world and being the bullies they are, truly believe they are to be the bosses of all things.

    “I am the Decider.”

    Still on that non-Christian thingy, eh?

    That was expert-level trolling!

    (raises hand) Yeah, disdain! That’s the word!

    I assume Obama has a speechwriting team, who have a professional troller on it. That was definitely some world-class trolling.

    I assume Obama has a speechwriting team

    TBH…It is a doubt that he actually needs one!

    To this outsider to the American dream Obama comes across as one of the most articulate, clever and competent President’s the US has managed to elect in many a long year….

    It would seem at some deep resentful level the opposition are dully aware of that and hate him for it with a passion…oh and he is black and that has gotta sting!

  • StevoR

    I wonder if Obama is secretly (or not so secretly) as amused by these idiots as Ed Brayton is? It wouldn’t surprise me. Guy does have a good sense of humour and can’t blame him for winding them up and shit stirring them a bit, after all they’ve said about him without it..

  • matty1

    So, the Bible doesn’t predict the total destruction of all life on earth followed by the resurrection of the dead and final judgement. It predicts that wars and refugee crises will occur in some places but not others.

    It’s a start I guess, now what else can you be non-literalist about Mr Farah?

    Re anubisprime @ #!5

    Hey, Obama is a graduate of Columbia. And has a law degree from Harvard, just like E. W. Jackson.

  • Larry

    These fundie dicks really need to get their shit together. Either thinking about the end days give them a jesus stiffie and Obama is to be thanked or they’re only faking about really wanting to go meet and be judged by their god and blame Obama for making that happen. This waffling on the fence only makes the appear ridiculous and stupid. Which, for them, isn’t as difficult as it would seem.
