Zing! Oh, the irony of Obama complaining about lack of background checks

Our aching sides! As we reported, President Petulant threw a tantrum yesterday after gun control legislation failed in the Senate.

That tweet has other Twitter users gasping for breath. Why?

Bingo. The operative word? Irony.


Never change, Twitter.

    You guys are way off. He was talking about the peasant class, which he is clearly not a part of. Go back to your cake, nothing to see here.

    • nc

      Even the cake is stale…

  • Den-Cat

    He does talk the talk very well – walking the walk …not so much.

    • pajamakat

      Even his talk is so very tiring. I can’t stand this idiot. Whiner in chief, crybaby in chief NOT commander in chief

      • Grumpa Grumpus

        “Commode-tator in Chief”, perhaps?
        Everything that flies out of bammy’s over-wide oral sphincter is just commode-fillings anyway…

    How about any potential gun buyer has to show a stamped, sealed, and notarized birth certificate?

        This just in, Obama corrected. Says he meant 90% of Americans were in favor of ‘background music’, not checks.

        • Saar

          a boombox (not a boomstick) for every persons shoulder. Free Jayz cd’s for the chillren.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Dammit, I was hoping those CD’s would be included in my clay skeet target package…. I mean, that’s all they are good for. Pretty, sparkly shards in the sunlight, fractured rainbows dancing in the wind.

          • Saar

            poetic. :)

    • Michelle

      And not three years after the purchase.

    • BlahBlah

      BRB out to buy some Crayola.

    • LightSabre

      and their school records.

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        No way man, you have to pay to get your transcripts!

    • SpinMeNot

      And their SSN verified via eVerify.


    Impeach that traitor

  • DurkaDurka

    He is a complete and total psycho. He has nukes and hasn’t had a background check.

    • Thought Criminal #1

      Yeah, we have laws against admitted drug abusers buying a gun, but nuclear launch codes? Natch.

  • Clayton Grant

    I made this point a month ago. Can’t get a look at Obama’s records, but he has his finger on the nuclear trigger.

    Also ironic: the shape of a loophole.

    How about if people show just six of their Social Security cards and four passports, Barry? That enough?

  • deTocqueville1

    Palin zinged him at CPAC on this so glad it is catching on as he continues to make a fool of himself.

  • daPenguin

    so this mugger shows up and pulls a gun and I say hold on there, is that a legally purchased handgun? Oh crap he says and runs away!

    • E Quilibrate

      Isn’t it easy to envision that scenario.

  • Garth Haycock

    It would only be irony if we didn’t expect this of Dear Leader.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    This is an on-going issue with the Ass-Clown-in-Chief. He can’t pass a basic background check to own a firearm because of his admitted use and distribution of illegal narcotics. He lost the moral authority to govern anyone a long time ago (if, in fact, he ever had it).

  • aliwilcox

    @henry Thoreau–I don’t think Presy Petulant is a psychopath (if that’s what you meant by psycho). I think he’s what used to be called a sociopath. Today’s definition: People with antisocial personality disorder perceive the world differently than most people do and may not have the range of feelings that others have. Because they cannot relate to others, they have no trouble lying or violating the rights of other people in order to achieve their goals. Some of these people are very charming and adept at manipulating others, while others may use violence or intimidation to get what they want.

    • Tom Anderson

      Like serial killers and stalkers.

    • Amber

      Beautifully defined, and completely accurate!

  • ceemack

    I can just show a photo of a birth certificate, right?

    • E Quilibrate

      Certainly,……………..as long as it’s not a real one.

  • nc

    Baby Bama, role model.

  • K-Dubya

    “The Won” lost. Now you shall all suffer his wrath!

  • tops116

    Hey, if a background check is good enough for a law-abiding gun-owner, then it’s certainly good enough for that whiny man-child in the Oval Office.

  • Guest

    Let’s start with a level playing field,
    everyone get THEIR records sealed.

  • $27789750

    We still don’t know about him.

  • Ironbutterfly 51

    Next up….stop the amnesty, see how it works Obama, eventually people stop buying your hypocritical BS.

    All employees, citizens and noncitizens, hired after November 6, 1986 and working in the United States must complete a Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.

    All means all.
    Must means must.

    Where is Obama’s Form I-9 and acceptable hardcopy documentation?

    Where is the evidence that Obama is in compliance with current immigration law?

    I love that. I only wish I’d tweeted it first! The man is a contradiction, shrouded in mystery, wrapped in bullshit.

    • E Quilibrate

      Nope. I checked, it’s B.S. clear through.

  • Tom Anderson

    Background checks for thee but not for me…
    And taxes and tightening your belt and … and… and….

  • lana ward

    He would not be President if he had had a background check. Pompous communist punk!!

  • BeautifulAmerica

    He’s a “more equal” pig than others.

  • Joe W.

    And he’s still a Muslim from Kenya….so there’s that…

  • $18912735

    He’s black? Whoa… didn’t know that. In that case, I see your point – stop all the criticism everyone – he’s BLACK!

  • JoeMyGodNYC

    Mentioning that the president is black will apparently get your post deleted on Twitchy. But you CAN call the President of the United States “Obongo” and other racist names here. “Zing, Oh The Irony” indeed.

  • E Quilibrate

    Got it.

  • wwbdinct

    If you don’t like the rules here, you can leave any time. Stop whining you little sissy!

  • WilliamAmos

    You implied that people here are racist. That is what got your post deleted. And we try to catch any racist comment made against anyone. While I don’t like some of the nicknames used against Obama that one isn’t racist. Its not nice but it isn’t what you labeled it.

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    How is ‘Obongo’ racist? And psst… he’s half white.

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    What makes a reference to a drug smoking device racist?

  • JoeMyGodNYC

    I do understand the rules of Twitchy. Racism is OK here.

  • WilliamAmos

    No it isn’t. If wish to keep lying you wont be posting here for long.

  • nc

    Your saying so over and over doesn’t make it true.

  • nc

    Thank you, William.

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    What makes that one so bad?
    He admits he “chooms”… he’s implied he favored “bongs” to “choom” with…
    What is the difficulty?
    I ask these questions in earnest.
