HUMOR: G20 Ends Abruptly As Obama Calls Putin A Jackass

G20 Ends Abruptly As Obama Calls Putin A Jackass (The New Yorker/The Borowitz Report, Sep 7, 2013):

ST. PETERSBURG (The Borowitz Report)—Hopes for a positive G20 summit crumbled today as President Obama blurted to Russia’s Vladimir Putin at a joint press appearance, “Everyone here thinks you’re a jackass.”

The press corps appeared stunned by the uncharacteristic outburst from Mr. Obama, who then unleashed a ten-minute tirade at the stone-faced Russian President.

“Look, I’m not just talking about Snowden and Syria,” Mr. Obama said. “What about Pussy Riot? What about your anti-gay laws? Total jackass moves, my friend.”

As Mr. Putin narrowed his eyes in frosty silence, Mr. Obama seemed to warm to his topic.

“If you think I’m the only one who feels this way, you’re kidding yourself,” Mr. Obama said, jabbing his finger in the direction of the Russian President’s face. “Ask Angela Merkel. Ask David Cameron. Ask the Turkish guy. Every last one of them thinks you’re a dick.”

Shortly after Mr. Obama’s volcanic performance, Mr. Putin released a terse official statement, reading, “I should be afraid of this skinny man? I wrestle bears.”

After one day of meetings, the G20 nations voted unanimously on a resolution that said maybe everyone should just go home.

  1. He who calls the first name loses the game. If Obama is down to name calling, he has lost the battle.
    What a fool. His excellent education ought to have taught him better.

  2. Another comment. I was telling a friend of mine about this article, he looked it up and read it. He checked Pravda….it still exists. It called Obama’s foreign policy “spit ball diplomacy.” I laughed so hard, I had to share it with you. In light of this article, I thought you might appreciate it.
