Let me get this picture: the guy who just comes off a trip to Africa, Ireland and prior to a planned vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, now says Trayvon Martin could have been him 30 years ago. I know full well what the scandal-plagued president meant and virtually intended by that remark. He calculated it all along, starting with Trayvon as his son and then upping his personalization to himself.
But really what does it say about this narcissist in the White House? Not what he intended to mean, but what it really says? In the context of his tenure now, hobnobbing with celebs, doing tee time rituals in spite of what is going on in the country, taking elaborate vacations, what it really says? Having his kids in posh private schools and secret service protection for a lifetime; when planning his next vacation is the priority.
In that context, what does it really say? He is as disconnected from reality as anyone can be, and has been for some time. Then he quips that Trayvon could have been him. Maybe someone can help me see the real relevance of that remark, because my stomach cannot digest it all.
Okay, maybe this is a good time for the radical, condescending, narcissist-in-chief to have a microsecond of clarity and see how much America has done and given him. Sure, all he did was make a big speech and ride the coattails of popularity. But how much has the nation benefited him- not the other way around. Especially given what his background was and with his utter lack of experience running anything. He lost to Bobby Rush.
That is not the message he wants to convey to everyone else. Yet he lectures us to not deny “context” to the picture. I have seen quite enough context, specifically his.
It is probably just more fodder for a diversion from Obama’s real problems, our country, his record, and the truth. The race card never gets old – there’s context for you.
Sorry Obama, your translation loses
something …a lot in the “context”.
