TMI: Buzzfeed reporter’s mistweet makes President Obama’s speech sound uncomfortably candid

Whoa, what happened on the south side? In an early afternoon speech in Chicago, President Obama spoke of the importance of fatherhood, but did he really suggest that maybe he escaped being “punished with a baby” during his days in the city?

Let’s review the tape.

Editor’s note: The title of this post has been amended to clarify that it was a BuzzFeed reporter’s tweet, not a tweet from one of BuzzFeed’s official Twitter feeds.

    When Obama screws up now there are no consequences at all. Thank you media.

    • Catchance

      Well, no consequences for him… for the rest of us it’s a nightmare.

    • dennylee60

      He is in the process of aborting the economy.

  • InvictusLux

    When Obama screwed up the consequences of her bastard were on the entire planet. God help us.

  • buckofama2010

    He has never NOT screwed up the worthless pile ofSHIT

  • Randy C. Lindsey

    News flash: Obama has screwed up and the consequences are going to be harsh for us all for a long time to come.

  • Linus Redding

    South Side?, North, East, Or West Side. When Obama was “Elected” WE ALL GOT SCREWED !!!!

  • Scott Carroll

    If a reporter sends out a stupid tweet and nobody is around to read it, is it still biased?

  • Steve_J

    The consequences of screwing up in Hawaii were never as high as there were in South side of Chicago, for anybody.

    I guess this is the internet version of “filling air time” when there is no news to report.

    • Ken Alan Draper

      it’s not a news site genius.

      • mheathman

        if it isn’t a news site, why is there a “lead story” on the front page along with a “Media” label under the title? and here is a definition of the word news: Newly received or noteworthy information, esp. about recent or important events. The site is missing a lot of “noteworthy information.”

      FLASH******* 9 out of 10 “smart people” think Twitchy is a NEWS SITE!…………… at eleven.

      • Elizabeth Walker

        if it isnt why are u here?

      • mheathman

        It claims to be with their “lead stories” but mostly contain noise and garbage.

  • Ralph_Gizzip

    The sad thing is Obama’s mother punished us with a baby.

    • Linda Palucci

      agree and she sure had pretty bad taste in men.
