President Obama who is nothing but me, me. me it is all about me, complains about “his” lap dog press.
President Barack Obama told American reporters to “behave” during a joint press conference with President Jacob Zuma of South Africa.
Obama was warning U.S. journalists not to ask too many questions in one, complaining that “my press” tried to squeeze “three or four or five questions in there,” complimenting Zuma on his more compliant media. (Zuma’s Television networks are dominated by the government-owned South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC)). Obama salivates at the idea.
(The Associated Press noted that “both U.S. and South African reporters asked multi-part questions,” though seconded Obama’s description of U.S. journalists as “his press corps.”)
Obama’s admonition of American journalists is not the first time he has rebuked them in the presence of a foreign leader, on foreign soil.
In March, during a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he scolded NBC reporter Chuck Todd for asking several questions, saying an Israeli reporter who asked only one question had “behaved” better. H/T: Breitbart
Meanwhile, in taking a page from Putin- me, me , me, alerts his African fans to take it off. Though apparently he doesn’t feel as sexy as his role model Putin. (Don’t believe it-his idolizing fans loved it).
