    OMG yes, please, the American People NEED cute dog pics and cute ani-gifs to make it through the day! Hip hip hooray for Dear Leader!

    This is obviously what they do and focus on all day. Why is it when reading this White House’s releases I feel like I’m sitting in on a kindergarten class?

    Calvin Coolidge was “Silent Cal”

    Ronald Reagan was “The Great Communicator”

    Barack Obama is “The Frivilous Tweeter”

      If by “The Frivilous Tweeter” you mean “Hypocritical Asshat,” I’m in total agreement.

    Dear God, I didn’t think it could get any more pathetic.
