Pics: Photo Op POTUS uses kids at gun grab political theater, puts on shameful display

For the (use of) Children™:

As we reported earlier, President Obama planned to shamefully use children as props, playing on emotions, during his announcement of his gun control measures. And, that he did. In all its disgraceful glory.

Adorable? The innocent children being used as political props are adorable. But the president’s shameless and shameful actions? Not so much.

High. Fives.

The disgraceful political prop theater continued.

That’s right. As Twitchy reported earlier, he added epic hypocrisy to that by invoking the right to life. Except for when it comes to abortion, natch.

Of course, using children is nothing new to Democrats.

The president’s Twitter feed also tweeted something else that was staggering in its lack of self-awareness.

For President Obama, the freedom to be shameful and disgraceful is paramount. Everybody else? Whatever. He knows what should be allowed or not. If, of course, he thinks you deserve the right to life. Or freedom.

    I have total respect for the Office of the President but NO respect for the POS currently occupying it.

    • rinodino

      And really, I don’t think they care what you far righties have to say, so it’s a mute point

      • Joe W.

        That’s the only correct statement you have ever made, Assbreath. Barack DOESN’T care what anyone thinks. And you suck up to him with every breath you take. Ignorant crap weasel.

        • rinodino

          Calm down and stop acting all tough to your keyboard

          • Joe W.

            Shove it, Needlenose.

      • TugboatPhil

        He’s coming for your stuff too.

        • rinodino

          Sure he is, you know for a bunch that hates Hollywood so much, you sure watch a lot of movie thrillers.

          • twinx

            What is a “movie thriller?”

      • Herman LaClair

        the word by which you are trying to sound intelligent is “moot”…idiot.

        • rinodino

          Thank you LaChump, my fault, let me sound intelligent…. Herman Cain LaClair, sorry about that

      • PennyRobinsonFanClub

        “Moot.” YOU are the one who should stand “mute.”

      • PennyRobinsonFanClub

        PS — yeah so much for the OTHER lie about Him being the great healer and uniter.

      • Noah Lee

        I was trying to find the “moot” button when O-baywatch came on.

      • Lisa Dean

        Quite frankly my dear we don’t give a damn but you certainly do. Otherwise you wouldn’t post anything.

      • T.Marie

        Whether you like it or not, the “far” righties are American citizens, too, and have every right to speak their mind. Obama is President not just for lefties and moderates but for the right as well [fantasyland, I know]. As he’s acting now, though, he thinks he’s some divine king, who can change our nation’s Constitution with a flick of his hand. So, you’re somewhat right in saying he doesn’t care about what righties have to say…..problem is he doesn’t care what ANYONE says.

        • Patsplacepp

          @facebook-100001807291285:disqus I’ve got to ask, out of all of these gun measures, which one actually changes the nation’s constitution? I’m not asking to be a dick. Fox and every right wing blog/radio show is pounding their chest that the 2nd amendment is being harmed, but no one will say how. The right of the people to keep and bear arms is still there. Or am I missing something? Just asking and not coming at you with left leaning spin..I just want to know

      • twinx

        A MUTE point????!! What in tarnation is that?

      • KhadijahMuhammad

        Oh, they don’t.

        But, nonetheless, isn’t it nice that they’re picked an issue which guarantees that they’ll be passing back to us all the seats won in the 2012 election, and then some?

        And we got that for FREE!

      • DavidKramer

        Hey moron, I think the word you are looking for is moot. God would you intellectually superior lefties get a real education?

      • Belinda Henry

        in 2016 all those rednecks that thought Obama would leave their guns alone will care. ;^)

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Everything I need to know about President Sock Puppet I learned from the People’s World.

      “People’s World and Mundo Popular are known for partisan coverage… The editorial mission is partisan … to international solidarity; to popularize the ideas of Marxism and Bill of Rights socialism. The websites enjoy a special relationship with the Communist Party USA…”

      Any more questions?

  • Joseph Phillips

    As a thank you for their attendance for the power grab each child was sent home with a copy of “Call of Duty,” a “Training Day” DVD, and a bill for $52,000.

    • Noah Lee

      that’s good stuff, Joe.

  • sb36695

    The prezzy looks so comfortable around these children. Guess he feels smarter than them. After all, he made it through 7th grade math! haha

    • KALKAM

      He looks comfortable around them because they are the ones that will be paying off his spending tab….and they don’t seem to mind…or know yet.

  • lillymckim

    None of us would have guns or the right to carry if not for the NRA’s constant fighting for each and every one of us to keep our 2nd Amendment rights.

    Who speaks for us?

    Have you seen any high profile Republicans today speaking out against Obamas gun control? 23 executive orders? Republicans are silent!

    Again if you are not a member of the NRA I ask what are you waiting for?

  • notenoughtime

    Even with children surrounding our President he is not warm and caring. He comes off once again as cold and calculating and the children served as pawns. No hope; no change; no future!

  • LadyMacKeltar

    Talk about using children to advance his own agenda.

  • TugboatPhil

    Hiding behind human shields.

  • abnormalslc

    Did any pro 2nd amendment kids write letters to Pres. Obama? If so, they most likely were shipped to Homeland Security, and now the families are on all sorts of government lists now…..
    Here is how to make your letter “look like” it was written by a grade schooler…..use the opposite hand you normally write with…use crayon maybe…misspell a few words…bingo…instant letter written by a child with NO HELP WHATSOEVER from the parents.

    • digitalPimple

      Obama only cares to share air space with those that agree with his various mental disorders. That’s why he has very few friends in the real world or on the hill.

  • grais

    Imagine how disappointed those kids will be when Obama doesn’t work the miracle he’s ‘promising’ them.
    The question is, though, will they face the reality, or will they just blame Republicans?

    • Michelle

      When they learn this is just all a big lie about keeping them safe and when the next school shooting happens, there is no doubt they will blame Republicans, the NRA and sane, law-abiding citizens. Again. Because to do anything else, to actually find a solution by addressing the causes and conditions of our culture of violence, it would require these brainless Liberal parents to actually take a look at themselves and their failures.

  • Marcy Cook

    What? Only 4 kids??? Even the kids are running from him.

  • digitalPimple

    Everyone should understand… Obama is the only person who has compassion and any understanding of any given issue. He alone corners the market and who in the hell do you think you are to not realize that?

    • René Sundvall

      I’m saddened by all the vitriol I see on this page! I’m living in the same country with all this hate? Do any of you people realize what a great country you live in, how much you have in your lives? Is this the way you people talk around your co-workers, friends? When you go to bed at night, do you lie in bed and think…well…I told THEM? Seems like many of you need to take a few deep breaths, and count your blessings. Oh…I’m sure I’ll have plenty of you to tell me off, but that’s just what you do. Your mom’s would be so proud, I’m sure.

  • Michelle

    Pretty sure these kids are under the impression there will be no more mass shootings at school because they watched Barry sign some papers today and they were told it would keep them safe. These same kids are in for some very important lessons, including becoming aware they were lied to, when the next mass shooting at a school happens. And it will happen.

    • Bob Khan

      Agreed. A false sense of security is never a good idea to instill in children. I’ve already briefed our eldest daughter on how take specific actions to better survive a school shooting and plan to do the same for my youngest daughter when she enters Kindergarten.

      • Taxed Poor

        I believe 9-11 happened because of a false sense of security….

    • Patsplacepp

      No I doubt “these” kids have that thought. If their parents ok them to come to this event, I’m probably guessing they sat down explained what this was all about. Your “Barry” is trying to make things better for these kids and the ones that come after. There is no cloak of protection, just the hope that things might get a bit better. It’s funny reading many of the comments here and on other blogs and such. So much venom, but not much else. Your so against “Barry’s” moves, get off your lazy ass, making some phone calls, rally friends and family, get you house and sente reps to make some moves in the right direction. It’s so easy to yell from the peanut gallery but when push comes to shove, not many answers as to what to do. I’m sure this is coming off as a smack down to you, and honestly it isn’t. People complain, but make no effort to actually make change. Voting for the other guy is the tip of the iceberg. If you think “Barry” is wrong in what he does, you have to get off the blogs and make your voice heard. Just my two cents and really what do I know, I only live in Canada. Cheers

      • Michelle

        Oh honey, that wasn’t a “smack down” it was a bunch of presumptuous nonsense that only made me laugh. You don’t know anything about me, what actions I take or what I do. You presume I just sit behind a keyboard and complain. Interesting. You seemingly have an issue with the use of “Barry”, but you do know that is what his family calls him, right? In any event, thanks for your two-cents from Canada, sorry you wasted your time as your opinion means absolutely…zip. What do you know? Not a whole lot. Cheers!

        • Patsplacepp

          @twitter-27601201:disqus thanks. I usually only pop on here to laugh at just how wonky the right leaning world in the US is. You are totally right that I have no idea who you are, what you’re about. Thankfully even on a site like this my opinion seems to mean absolutely a lot..You took the time to respond. As for Barry…I’m pretty sure you’re not family. Enjoy your chair and the keyboard you tap on. Don’t hurt yourself. Cheers again..from Canada!!

          • Michelle

            People like you make me ever-so-grateful my family left Canada and (legally) emigrated to the United States. And they were oh-so-happy to leave it behind. Cheers again…from the United States!!

          • Patsplacepp

            @twitter-27601201:disqus if by people like me you mean people that aren’t bullied, Thank you. It’s nice to know that a country like Canada has no problem allowing its citizens to leave without a problem. We even let them come back if they need to. Yeah Canada is pretty cool.

  • dennylee60

    That picture is so racist!!! I see 2 white, a Hispanic and an African-American. Where is the Asians??? He hates must Asians and is discriminating against us. (Just kidding!)

    • Bob Khan


      He couldn’t find a liberal Asian American. :)

      From personal experience, I know most Korean Americans are Christian Conservatives.

      • dennylee60

        I wish that is the case. More and more Asians are becoming liberal.

    • twinx

      LOL. Ya beat me to it! Now… were any of those kids transgender or, um, never mind.

    • digitalPimple

      Asians are pretty good at math so they make Obama uncomfortable.

    • TugboatPhil

      He figures that since he’s from Hawaii that there’s already an Asian in the picture.

  • digitalPimple

    Sure doesn’t help to have Obama caught on tape saying “those People cling to their guns and religion” when trying to pass any new gun regs. Sorry brother. You fucked up long ago on this issue. Lost any and all good will or cred.

  • SansMercy

    I wonder what that stage would look like if a gunman had shot up a vet clinic, or an insane asylum, or a meat packaging plant? Dogs? Crazies? Cows? Absolutely base.

    • Taxed Poor

      I wonder what that stage would look like if a gunman had shot up a vet clinic, or an insane asylum,

      Thats a large part of the problem that they fully intend to ignore, the emptied all the long term asylums decades ago and turned them on the public.. thus all these mass shootings, thus the push for abolishing the 2nd Amendment… they have no guilt, The Ends Justifies The Means…

    If the federal government should overpass the just bounds
    of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people,
    whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard they have formed, and
    take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the
    exigency may suggest and prudence justify.

    The disingenuous, hollow-hearted smiles behind those kids is sickening. Its almost kiddie-porn for the Left who will publicly abuse the privacy of a child in a slight-of-hand act of “protection.”

  • Elaine

    Too bad he’s not as worried about their financial future. He’s already got them in debt before they start working, so I guess the government OWNS them anyway…

  • GaryTheBrave

    Could we say he fondled those kids? It looked like those kids were ready to scream, “THE BAD MAN HURT ME!!”

  • SansMercy

    And talking about embarrassment – who are the parents of these poor little bastards who have no choice in the matter except to be propped up in front of the blood-sucking national media so the looser parent can have their 5 minutes of fame? Fools raising tools in a vicious cycle that will continue to erode the fabric of family and community.

  • SansMercy

    I guess adult mass-shootings don’t count – no representation on stage. So if you’re an adult and are a victim in a mass-shooting, go F*** yourself. The lead Tool doesn’t care because you don’t play into his marketing message.

    I see this parade of nauseating hypocrisy and want to ask:

    Where is the Benghazi Situation room photo op?

  • N3al

    Were there no puppies available to add to the theater?

  • T.Marie

    Is it just me, or do those kids look super bored? Anyhow, this man disgusts me.

  • HollywoodPhoto

    Just think, it was only a few short years ago that Obama didn’t want his girls “punished with a baby”…no longer are kids considered “punishment” to the great one, they are now also “props” to be used in furthering his agenda.

  • Tony0920

    did he cry? i missed it

  • KhadijahMuhammad

    First of all, we need to all give a big shoutout to Obama for being the President responsible for the largest increase of the level of readiness of the United States Militia in history.

    Secondly, it was especially nice that in doing so, he has basically guaranteed that all seats won by his party in 2012, and then some, will be given back to the GOP on a silver platter. (And, folks, we didn’t have to negogiate for that — we got that for FREE.)

    And thirdly, on an unrelated by equally amusing topic, to point out that after all his caterwauling (and wasted money) on renewable energy, one of the hallmarks of his presidency will be as the president who presided over the largest increase in domestic fossil fuel production, perhaps in all history.

    What a guy, I’ll tell you.
