There’s unedifying, then disgusting, revolting, appalling… and then there’s this.
Southside With You, threatening to come soon to a theater near you, is a movie about Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date and ensuing romance (ack! ugh! ia! Cthulhu fhthagn!), a film that “reimagines the first couple…” (http://ijr.com/2016/05/597917-a-movie-about-the-obamas-first-date-is-coming-to-theaters-soon-but-the-trailer-is-out-now/ )
Do you know what “reimagine” means? It means you’ve come up with enough lies to bury Asia. You “reimagine” this pair of–well, a man who never did a nickel’s worth of honest work in his life, and a woman with a hair-trigger temper–crikey, I can’t say it! I literally can’t repeat, or even paraphrase, the bilge that’s in the press release. Has anybody seen my barf bag?
So I guess they won’t be showing Michelle picking Barack up and tucking him under one arm as she strolls over to the stall where they sell the $5,000 sneakers, or show him playing golf while our people in Benghazi get murdered in the streets. They will stretch artistic license till it screams for mercy, depicting President *Batteries Not Included as having a brain and being able to talk without a teleprompter.
Are we truly grown so servile? These people rob us blind, ravage our republican institutions, corrupt our courts, wipe the floor with our Constitution, and insult us every day–and we idolize them? We sit and watch sappy movies about them? Merciful heavens, have we truly come to this?
Say it ain’t so, Joe… say it ain’t so.
