I think it's humorous. We have had years of Obama jokes, even though he did a decent job whether you admit it or not. So get used to it... the Trump jokes are here to stay.
@MrPuffNStuff, I hope trump can accept he's gonna get goofed being the president. I don't see any "trump compassion translator" video coming any time soon haha
@MrPuffNStuff, actually, whether or not he did a good job is very much up to debate. The most relevant one right now is almost his entire legacy was built on executive orders, which means Trump can undo it on the first day.
@MrPuffNStuff, I don't agree he did a good job, but I do very much see the humor in president jokes.
@Donald Trump, dun dun dunnnnn
@Oujosh29, and who's fault is that? Your gridlocked congress and senate perhaps? Sometimes you Americans can't see the forest through the trees. Canadian politics aren't always pretty either but come on. At least we aren't run by a government who's idea of leadership is to refuse to work with anybody who doesn't give them exactly what they demand. It's childish and now with white nationalism working it's way into your whitehouse, it's gonna get even more racist! Whoopee.
@SkeptikalScabies, of course Obama gets to own it. Yes, our system of goverment us basically to screw the other party, but Obama owns not getting a single Republican vote on obamacare, because obama refused to consider what they thought. For example, republicans shared two good ideas, tort reform and selling insurance across state lines. The democrats ignored these, and said screw you. Its the presidents job to get stuff done through a hostile congress; clinton managed to do it, so did both bushes. Obama didnt, and now his legacy is screwed.
@SkeptikalScabies, wow, you really know nothing except for what the media wants you to know don't you?
@MrPuffNStuff, I liked Obama as a person but not as a leader
@Polaroid, Oujosh29, c'mon guys, let's keep it civil. FP is for Funny Pics not F*** Politics.
@AJMalone, sorry boss
@Polaroid, 🍻 it's good. It's ok to voice an opinion just do so calmly. 😎
@Oujosh29, that's because republicans blocked everything he tried to do for 8 years. They basically said when was elected "we will block everything he does"
@Polaroid, you sound like the kind of person who only knows what the media wants you to know
@Jonnasty, they couldn't block anything the first 6 months, and even after that they only needed one republican vote. The democrats could have gotten at least one vote if they tried.
@AJMalone, have to admit, commenting politica is my favorite thing about funnt pics 😆. Just like debating. I'm always civil.
@Oujosh29, sorry about the spelling, not great on smart phones.
@Oujosh29, I said decent job. You can't say he didn't with what he was left with after Bush, and a Republican party that literally said they would block him no matter what he proposed.
@Oujosh29, Obama has used a below average amount of executive orders
@Donald Drumpf, he's used less than others if thats what you mean, thats also a false argument. What those executive orders were is the controversy. However, we don't even need to get into that, its a fact that most of his successes was him using his executive authority without going through congress. That means the next president is free to undo almost all of it at whim.
@Oujosh29, the republicans did filibuster almost everything, though. Which prevented a vote in many cases if the required override wasn't met. That's why the override number was dropped from 61 to 51.
@Jonnasty, I'm not saying the republicans didnt obstruct. Sadly, thats how our political system works, and we're about to see the reserve with the democrats going to try their hardest to obstruct Trump. However, besides words I didn't see Obama even try to compromise much with Republicans.
@Oujosh29, yeah a lot of polarization in the government. It really sucks.
@SkeptikalScabies, bruh the harper government was exactly what you described. He literally had no open press conferences.
@SkeptikalScabies, bruh u gotta take that daily dose of the red pill.
@MrPuffNStuff, he did a terrible job, he damaged the internal government by forcing powers to his executive branch, appointed ludicrous number of zcars, some of which got rejected by both parties for plans such as letting the government roam the internet and "correct" (censor) political opinions, he took nearly every chance he could to make race relations and party bias worse, the economy is tanking and floating on spent money that is now a massive massive debt, he didn't stop any middle east fighting and even got involved with quadafi (might be spelled wrong) did you see how much vacation time he spent? It was record breaking. And obama care has been dead or a while, just as his own teams predicted it ran out of money fast. Now it's dead and the left has been waiting for a republican to bury it so they can blame them for it's failure. He insulted allies by returning a gift from in the white house because he didn't like it The only area he did good in was funding in science departments
@Jonnasty, the deeper the polarizion gets the easier our country can tear itself apart without a politician even having to pull the strings.
@Oujosh29, did you forget how the republicans literally held a meeting and said on tape that they would do everything in their power to make sure he failed? Don't tell me he didn't try to work with them. There are even examples of Obama agreeing with your Republican Party only for them to turn around and reverse their decision because Obama was on board. Clinton had a famously great time with congress because he was a good old boy just like them and both bushes were republicans.
@Oujosh29, I get a kick out of how fired up people get when I try and provide an outside perspective on America. (I'm Canadian)
I don't understand why it turns so hostile, but I've got internet anonymity and a border! Yay.
@Polaroid, see we have these people out there in the world known as "subject matter experts"
You might remember some from when you were in school. (They were called teachers) but see, experts aren't restricted to learning institutions. They exist all over the place. Sometimes I see them on fox or CNN or wherever writing articles online. I then use the years and years of their knowledge and experience to form an idea of how the world works (in this case regarding your country's politics and economics). When these people who have a considerably better understanding of how this works than you or I could ever hope to achieve throw up red flags, I listen. But hey man, I guess you sure showed me with your lügenpresse conspiracy eh? Jeez.
@Dephenistrator, You're staying things every President in recent memory has done. We have been in and will remain in debt, there will always be fighting in the middle east. Race has been an issue since someone of one race met that of another. The government has always been and I guarantee will remain shady. He stuck to the typical agendas overall. I don't see how that's any worse than anyone else.... Oh yeah race.
@SkeptikalScabies, no one is getting fired up, and no, I haven't forgotten. Like i said, I'm not saying the republicans weren't playing obstructinsts, but thats also not new, its normal for the party not in power to obstruct. The democrats did it before, and they are already geared up to do it again. However, I do disagree Obama really tried to compromise. On the few good ideas the republicans shared he ignored them, and never conpromised on the major things, only minor tweaks he didn't care about. The problem for Obama is that while no one compromised, its Obama's legacy on the line, no one is going to remeber McConnel, so Obama should have tried real compromise. Like I said, if he really tried, he could have easily swung some northern republicans who are basically democrat light.
@MrPuffNStuff, don't race bait, because thats over done and lame. Out of all his complaints you can't possibly look at that and go "yep, just race again". Obama is the president who more than any other president over reach his executive authority, and race relations are at their lowest levels in decades on his watch. We have been in debt, but we've never added 10 trillion in 8 years, thats a record for our entire countries existence. Pretending that all of these concerns are really just cover for racism is just race baiting and one of the reasons our country is so divided, because we cant have conversations anymore. "You think Obama did a bad job, racist!"
@Oujosh29, Bullshjt. Bush did so much silly shjt at the end of his presidency just cause he could. I'm not race baiting I'm being realistic. People hated him because of his race it's an absolute fact. I'm white and from Kentucky. I've heard the most absurd shjt around here and it's all because of race, deny it all you want. I never said he was perfect or amazing but he did no worse than most Presidents and gets talked about like he was absolutely horrible.
@MrPuffNStuff, race issues have spiked if you haven't notice, we always have a nation debt, but were fvcking drowning in it right now. I wasn't talking about the middle east fighting i was talking about us fighting there and how he promised he would end our involvement, and he has been excessively "shady". Maybe you should read the news, oh wait! Nearly every news station is his groupy. Maybe you should read both sides opinion during a presidency instead of the garbage bias. "..... oh yeah race" the hell are trying to get at there? Race doesn't matter to me if your implying something ignorant. I could go on for days with how many things this guy did wrong. It's one thing to say you like him, it's another to assume every will like him.
@MrPuffNStuff, wow, you had a bad experience so you assume race. Doesn't matter your situation, your still race baiting when it wasn't a topic. I never brought up race, that was all you. He hides behind race alot so if you want to defend him you need something more civilized than that. Every pres does "silly shjt" at the end. Their career is over and they still have executive power. I'm not condoning any of it, it's just what happens.
@Dephenistrator, I don't know what you mean bad experience and it's not race baiting if it's a valid point. The fact that you can sit there and say it's not proves my point. You can't argue against it except to say it doesn't exist when it quite clearly does. And this discussion is going nowhere and I'm tired of you trying to assume where I stand. So have a good day.
@Dephenistrator, Just to clear things up for the last time. I NEVER said anyone had to like him, and I NEVER said he did great or even good. This was all a comparison to other Presidents and somehow that got taken as an arguement where I think he was perfect. Comparitively he's stayed on the same track other Presidents have.
@MrPuffNStuff, you just said i said it doesn't exist when i just said it did but i wasn't arguing it. You also are saying that if i disagree I'm wrong so i can't rake you seriously either. This is over.
@Dephenistrator, Never said you were wrong cause you disagree? I never even said you were wrong. I gave my opinion. Like I said have a nice day
@MrPuffNStuff, he kinda was as bad as they can be. I mean his whole give money to the top with no regulations plan so they can "put that money into the company" was absolutely and incredibly stupid. There is litterally no excuses for why he thought that would work out
.... really? Should I build a fence so you can learn to get over it? *badum-tch* I'm sorry I'll leave now
I'm just saying we dodged a bullet with Russia so Trump getting elected is alright considering we don't have to deal with putin
@Timetravelingninja, in what way do we not have to deal with Put in? We have to deal with every major and/or significant world power. That includes countries on every continent, to include Russia. If you mean to imply that Russia is no longer an adversary, then get ready to be dissappointed
@abecedarian, I'm not disappointed at all ,putin the day after trump was elected released a statement that he wanted to restore relations with the U.S. So I don't know you misconstrued how that's not a good thing
@Timetravelingninja, didn't say that's not a good thing, better relations would be fine. But you said we don't have to deal with Putin. That seems to be a common and naive assessment, given that history is replete with examples of duplicity, Putin has a history of abuses (Crimea and Syria as recent examples), and the President elect won't be inaugurated for another month and a half.
@abecedarian, just a bad choice of words, of course we have to deal with him but our relations with Russian will have much less tension
@Timetravelingninja, as long as improving relations doesn't mean appeasement. I don't want war with Russia, but their foreign policy is developing to come to head with ours allies. As long as Russia stays out of NATO countries and backs off on Ukraine, we'll probably be ok.
@Oujosh29, spoken better than most our politicians
@Timetravelingninja, we haven't had a well spoken politician in a couple centuries.
Look everyone! This person thinks donald trump is bad!
See? No one cares, gets a fvcking life
@MCPO S117, Basacially what MrPuffNStuff. This is no different from jokes complaining about Obama.
@CounterPunSniper, never comment in a bad mood lol, i ate shjt
@MCPO S117, Lol, I know the feeling. Had a comment a few days ago where I came off as a whining pansy, regretted it almost immediately.
It must be painful to be this stupidly immature
I NEVER said you had to. I NEVER said he was great. I don't approve of 90% or more of what the government does. This is a comparison to other Presidents. You keep trying to pick my stand in this. Compared to other Presidents he's not horrible he's stayed pretty much right on course. I could go into my personal honest opinion but that would take too long, I'm one of them there conspiracy theorists. BUT based on face value he wasn't horrible, comparitivly.
Isn't Trump/Pence a value of British currency?
...No wait, that's tuppence.
...Trump/Pence would mean the winning penny.
