Obama: Simply the best!

On January 20th, 2009 the White House became inhabited by its 44th and first black president. His name was Barack Hussein Obama. America was ready for change. He defeated Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton in 2007 and in 2008 went on to defeat Republican John McCAin making Black History and sating America’s demand all in one day.

His presidency though has not been a bed of roses! During his first year in office, his citizenship was questioned, his race was questioned, his ability to be bipartisan with regards to politics and specifically to racism in america was questioned and with dignity and professionalism Obama wore that megabillion dollar smile and his response to his critics was “Yes I can,” that was 8 years ago.

Last night at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, President Obama delivered his final speech and in Obama fashion jeered, “It is an honor to be here at my last and perhaps the last  White House Correspondents’ Dinner,you all look great. The end of the Republic has never looked better. ” Obama was stacking bodies with the shots he was firing!

The President’s speech was laden with shade, humor, sardonism at its highest, but most importantly sincerity and a relativity of sadness that we could all relate to, he was in good spirits though and ready for the night. After his intro he started off roasting himself with self-deprecating jokes about his appearance and how his eight year term had given him his ‘salt and pepper tresses’. Eight years ago, I was a young man, full of idealism and vigor, and look at me now. I am gray and grizzled, just counting down the days ’til my death panel.” He went on to speak about the disparaging racial joke between Hillary Clinton and New York Mayor Joe Diblasio apologizing for his tardiness, “I was running on C.P.T.  which stands for “jokes that white people should not make.” It’s a tip for you, Jeff.

The commander in chief wasn’t done yet though, he reloaded that 12 gauge and kept on firing, blasting the GOP’s Chairman Reince Priebus. “Glad to see you that you feel that you’ve earned a night off”, he jeered, Congratulations on all your success! The Republican Party, the nomination process, it’s all going great; keep it up.” the crowd was in uproar!

As his address was coming to a close the President alluded that he had said all that he was going to say, you could almost hear the disappointment in the crowd, but he was just playing! The commander is known for his colorful humor and this crowd was not exempt from being his victims! In my best Vanessa Williams sultry voice he saved the best for last! It was time to give Trump his last 15 minutes (he was not in attendance), but after the 2011 sizing up that Obama spewed at him, i think that was the smart thing for him to do!

Obama noted Trump’s absence and he didn’t let him off easy, “Although I am a little hurt that he’s not here tonight. We had so much fun the last time and it is surprising. You’ve got a room full of reporters, celebrities, cameras, and he says no? Is this dinner too tacky for The Donald? What could he possibly be doing instead? Is he at home, eating a Trump Steak; tweeting out insults to Angela Merkel, what’s he doing?

As american’s had become accustomed to the president’s jovial personality, his sharp shooting words and piercing barbs, the president delivered in his half hour speech, but was time to say goodbye. “Anyway, here we are. My eighth and final appearance at this unique event, next year at this time, someone else will be standing here in this very spot and it’s anyone guess who she will be.” the president quipped, and with that, I just have two more words to say;Obama out.  He then dropped the microphone!

If there’s one great thing that you can say about America’s 44th president (and there are many), you can definitely say that america will never see another president that was transparently honest about who he was. Obama was the 44th president of the United States of America, he is Michelle Obama’s husband, he is a black american and he is “Simply the best!’

I recently had the opportunity to sit down and talk politics, social media, and life with veteran reality star Karamo Brown formerly of VH1’s The Real World Philadelphia and now the peacemaker walking the fine line of instigation on TV One’s hit new reality series “The Next 15″. Karamo isn’t like most reality stars gracing the small screen looking for their fifteen minutes of shine; Karamo has a message in the midst of the social media chaos, shade, and reality tv tactics.
