As Twitchy reported, the impromptu farewell hug between President Obama and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was about as awkward as it could get — until the magic of slow motion made it exponentially more uncomfortable. Reaction ranged from “ick” to “ugh” — not that there’s anything wrong with that.


  • Mary Mommy Happy 2016!

    This would totally be Obama and Jay two shameless liars love song.

  • Jeffrey Rogers

    Michael Sam says hey, you like white boys too?

  • Mark1971

    I would be kissing Carney too if I had to sleep with Michelle Obama every night.

    • Infidel

      Oh, gag…

  • DG

    I may have to sue Twitchy for this. LOL

    • Kaya Hund

      I chose NOT to click play.

        Not me either… the still alone is scarring.

        Sorry, but in my family, the only time a man kisses a man, is when you kiss the forehead of your father, or an uncle when they’re in a hospital bed during their last hours..

        anything else,…. it’s just nasty… sorry if that “offends” certain men, but it is what it is. Won’t apologize for being repulsed.

        But this ain’t the first time obama has displayed wildly over the top social miscue’s… remember when he bowed to the Saudi King?…… no way he did not know US presidents have NEVER bowed to foreign royalty, it’s not about respect, we are not Saudi subjects..

        no other foreign leaders bow to him, but our backwards socially retarded president did..

        then denied it…. when it was on film.. he still denied it..

        just like he’ll deny this..

        did his grandma and mentors raise him in a cage, devoid of any socialization?… it’s like he never learned any social skills till he was an adult and somebody threw him a book..

        • Jack

          I never kissed my Dad, didn’t want to, or care to. Even when he was in his casket at the wake. I just touched his hand and said goodbye you old bleep :) to each his own but I was not a fan- my 4 yr old boy gets pissed when his gramps(mom’s side) kissed him once on the lips. I wasn’t there and my son, again 4 yrs old told me gramps did something yucky. I almost kicked his ass and was going to call him a pedophile. I may be nuts but so what !!

          • Maryland_Malcontent

            Whoa, that’s really creepy. That’s approaching Harry Reid (allegedly) or Ancient Greece territory.

            To borrow from The Most Interesting Man: “There’s a time and a place for men osculating men: the time is never, you can guess the place.”

  • Cat Mom of 8

    Well, at least he kept his tongue in his mouth. There was definitely a look on O’s face that suggested that they would meet up later.

    • Robert Smith

      yech! Thanks for that visual.

    • Winebabe917

      You are so right. O looked like he had strong desire. Very creepy!

      • 1bob

        minor orgasm

    • RedOnTheHead

      I remember right after his reelection and subsequent immediate attack on the second amendment someone posted a picture released in August 2012 of the President shooting skeet that was supposed to show he wasn’t anti-gun and I made a joke that I was at least thankful he wasn’t trying to pander to the gay marriage crowd in his photo ops. Guess what? Joke’s over.

  • SisterMary

    My. Eyes. Are. Bleeding.

    • DG

      I would say Stigmata, but if you’re like me, you’re deliberately poking them with chopsticks.

    • Mary Mommy Happy 2016!

      I can’t sleep because of nightmares. I shouldn’t had seen this before heading to bed. lol

  • Askwatch

    Truly, forbidden love.

  • FreedomRecon

    That’s disturbing.

    • SisterMary

      On every level.

      • FreedomRecon

        And possibly on levels not even of this world.

        • tops116 ✓Quipper

          Boy, that air kiss was really weird, huh?


    • Mary Mommy Happy 2016!

      Also very creep and nightmarish unpleasant.

      • PatriotRG

        I’m about to up chuck!

  • NonPCconservative

    This kind of supports the contention that Obama is gay. The hug was more awkward than Obama throwing a baseball.

  • DG

    At some point, you just have to say “Good Night!”

    Good Night!

  • nc ✓s & balances

    Jay’s look of disgust is too funny. Then again, he always did have that look.

    • tedlv

      Ever notice how much Jay looks like Rachel Madcow?

  • sambar2


  • Maxx

    That was eerily similar to Obama’s no defense for Benghazi blow off kiss.

    Carney, “He had me at yellow.”

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    That’s not how you sexually harass someone in the White House. Have I taught you nothing?

    Bill Clinton

  • Mary Mommy Happy 2016!

    Seriously. I thought the sleeve kiss was grossly skeevy but this out does it by many ewww points. Is there any way to safely bleach your eyes

  • jer295

    What I’m about to suggest may sound like real tin foil hat stuff, but before you dismiss it, consider it.

    First, I think many people already suspect that Obama is gay or bi. He’s got a history with Chicago bath houses. But here is something that initially I dismissed, but have started to consider. Michelle is a transsexual, whose original name was “Michael”. Google “is Michelle Obama a man?”, and judge for yourself.

    I’m beginning to suspect that she’s a he.

    • Maryland_Malcontent

      Then the mystery would be why the one daughter looks rather similar to obama.

      • soxfan4evah

        Sperm donation, sex with girls is too creepy for Barry.

      • ImNoDhimmi

        Turkey baster.

    • 1bob

      Google ‘crotch salute’, and see a picture of ‘Michael’ in a blue dress with a definite bulge not normally present, plus, someone added a big red arrow in case you miss the bulge.

  • Maryland_Malcontent


    There have been rumors about Washington, Buchanan and Lincoln for decades but if they’re all bogus then it seems that obama has locked in “first gay pres”.

  • soxfan4evah

    Probably wanted to reenact Michael Sam’s cake kiss

  • douglasmarks

    Damn glad there was no cake involved.

    • Yeah Buddy

      urp! Almost lost breakfast on that one…

  • GirlRaisedInTheSouth

    You notice he had to catch Baghdad Jay first to stop the spinning in order to send the kiss. The only person more entertaining to take Jay Carney’s place might be Mike Dickinson (@VoteMike2014).

  • Guy_Montag_OG

    Now Jay can go on to bigger and better things, like that 400k per annum consultant position at the Unicorn Fart Center for Strategic Studies, or that 500k per annum CEO position at the Rainbow Oil Institute of Energy. Oh, to be a Democrat at the highest level is a sweet ride.

    • Doc Farmer ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Wait a sec, I WORK for the UFCSS, and I barely make $250K!!!

      • Guy_Montag_OG

        lol. You obviously don’t have the correct political credentials if you’re only making 250k at the UFCSS!

    • Yeah Buddy

      And a speaking tour of all the Democratic money-funneling groups. They love to make their ‘own’ rich.

  • OldmanRick

    Could that blown kiss be the real reason Baghdad Jay resigned? Inquiring minds wish to know.

    • conservativechick

      He couldn’t get away with the lies any longer. IMO. They have to change liars every year in this administration, before the lies catch up with them!

  • globalcrap

    These guys came out of the smelly closet.

  • Jinglebob

    So we now know where Obama and Jay were on the missing night during Benghazi.

  • Belinda Henry


  • Brad Harvey

    Fortunately, the farewell homie glide, originally scheduled immediately after the announcement, was postponed.

  • ConcernedOne ✓ Get ‘Em Out!

    So, it’s OK to say THAT’S disturbing or eww, which it is, but not Michael Sam’s gay make-out session?

  • ConcernedOne ✓ Get ‘Em Out!

    I’m sure he wanted to “blow” more than that……….#ReggieLove

  • RSnyder

    We’ll meet again? I’ll be here for you, always.

  • HerculesLoadmaster

    Next stop, bath house.

  • Katielee4211

    I don’t think that looked like a kiss. It almost looked like he was going to stick his tongue out at him. More of an F-off look.

  • “Rev Jim Jones”

    Ok nothing to see here folks, Obama is just paying tribute to the NFL draft.

  • frozeninbemidji

    and he whispered while hugging ” later, you, me, Reggie and a bottle of Courvoisier”

    To quote the Ladies Man “Yeah, well, you suffer from h0m0-erectus. That means your wang is hugeified not by women but by a man.

  • Frogmouth

    Is anyone really surprised by this?

    If so, just google Bathhouse Barry.

  • FlatFoot

    Amanda Hugginkiss…? Hey! I’m lookin’ fer Amanda Hugginkiss!

  • Cormac46

    That wasn’t a man hug it was a love embrace. Barry is not called Cake Boy in Chicago for nothing

  • globalcrap

    Now the world knows what kind of a weak minded person is running America.

  • Thomas Purcell

    The Chicago way is all

    • Yeah Buddy

      Did I hear the Godfather Theme playing in the background?

    • OTamandua

      Remember, in “Godfather II” when we heard that line, the next few scenes were all about A) the communists trashing Havana and, B) people fleeing for their lives from the communists.

      • Thomas Purcell

        You know I was wondering if people would get the reference. Yah people would know it was the Godfather, but would people get it was right before the Communists take over? Glad to see you did.

  • Thomas Carmody

    Well, that would explain why Obama identifies with Michael Sam as much as he does.

  • CrusadaB

    Totally wrong as is everything this man does.

  • Dork Blaster

    Need. Some. Mind. Bleach.


    Was he trying to make Reggie jelly?

  • Carolyn Lamberth Johnson

    So, did they break up in more ways than one?

  • Mike Gable

    Whoa, hugs like a girl, I’m shocked.

    • David

      Definitely a girl-like hug.

  • Yeah Buddy

    Or, maybe he was saying, “and you can kiss my ass on the way out the door…”
    Rats jumping off the sinking ship.

  • Diane

    I’ve said from Day 1 that Daddy O is gay (not that there’s anything wrong with that…). Time will out.

    • Tom Winegar

      Wonder if Misshallow is really a guy.

  • Tom Winegar

    Weirdest hug I have ever seen, like a mother pushing her child away from the nipple.

  • David

    “I’ll sing to you each morning.
    I’ll kiss you every night.
    But darling, don’t cling to me,
    I’ll soon be out of sight.”

  • Mysterry

    I’m certainly NOT an obama fan, but it looks to me like he’s saying ‘good luck’ (or something along those lines). When you say ‘good’ it purses your lips like that.

  • David Templeton

    A couple gay fellows!

  • SonsOfMontesQ

    • Alphabet_Soup

      “Ah cain’t quit you…(sob!)”

  • samantha

    We all thought…now we know

  • Diane Stephan

    “Why can’t I quit you?” a la Brokeback Mountain. lol

  • Jason Hunt


  • Daniel Bonacum

    I read a story the other day that said “Michelle Obama is rumored to have allegedly ordered President Obama to keep clear of reality-TV star Kim Kardashian”,.. seems she should be more concerned with Jay Carney.

  • mike

    These comments are great! Keep them coming.They really made me laugh. As for the new spokesman, watch your backside, whoever you are.

  • IndigoRed

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  • AlCashier

    frame by frame in slo-mo, that awkward obama gay public hug and kiss at the little creepy lapdog is worse, but =also= if you take in the entire look on obama’s face, he is still total livid at carney’s leaving – – really really livid. whether it is at carney or Obama is somehow thinking (blaming) “America forced carney out” … but no doubt to anyone here, obama looks downright hate-filled.

  • Brenda Lynn

    Knew Obama was gay..why doesn’t he admit it? Is he ashamed of himself or the gay community?

  • Thisoldspouse

    It’s okay. They can still “meet” in Barney Frank’s basement brothel.

  • Cordstreet

    There’ll be hell to pay when Reggie sees this.

    • A Person


  • CosmicCher

    Jay rose in my esteem when he went, “ICK@!”

  • usaok59

    Ewww, I didn’t want to see that!

  • AlmaAlma

    I didn’t find it such a big deal. Maybe because I have a European background and the men tend to be very affectionate. I saw it as kind of fatherly (not sexual) because Jay reminds me of an adolescent boy.

    • Maryland_Malcontent

      I wonder if comments like these annoy Carney considering that he’s middle aged, only ~3 years younger than obama.

      …I also wonder if European males wonder why they’re stereotyped as being metrosexual, foppish dandies in every other part of the world 😉

      • AlmaAlma

        Lol, the males in my family are anything but foppish dandies!

        You’re right, there probably is only 3 years between them, but man, it looks like a generation.

  • CrustyB

    So that’s why Obama wears those big mom jeans. He’s hiding his Depends.

  • TheRajLOSAngeles

    What the hell was that?! Seriously, though. This is the President……. our PRESIDENT!!! We have so much work to do starting with un-doing everything this pathetic leader has done.

  • Exodus2011

    Jay Carney looks to me to be under a great deal of stress ….. and the stony expression on Obama’s face is quite menacing, even when he was pursing his lips in that parody of an affectionate gesture

    If I was to write a back story to connect all that body language, I would say that Jay Carney has been trying and trying to resign for weeks, if not months – and the evil gal pal val has said no ….

    with the #VAscandal exploding and even DEMs complaining and Chrissy Matthews hanging up his Obama pompoms, Jay Carney has been allowed to go …

    IOW, I don’t think Carney was ASKED to go, he has wanted to go for a long time

    The menacing Obama’s kiss gesture (as Carney TRIED to remove Obama’s clutching arm from his shoulder btw … ) sent *this* message, IMV:

    don’t even THINK about talking to the Press about what you know ……

    My earnest and prayerful response ….

    … and deliver us from evil ……

    • $9844146

      There’s no doubt Carney wanted out, the Shinseki resignation provided the perfect cover. He’s able to slink away while the pols focus on the VA and their horrible actions.

  • Hy Alldredge

    Nothing about that video says affection. It was more likely the mafia kiss of death. How much do you want to bet Jay has an “accident” or is the victim of a “robbery gone wrong” in the next month or so?

  • Juanita Garnto

    At least Jay had a disgusted look on his face after the blown kiss. I guess the lies about the VA was just further than he could go. Should have left a long time ago. I don’t know if he’ll ever be able to redeem himself or restart an honest jounalism career after this job. I don’t feel sorry for him, he made his bed.

  • Guest

    I need these, STAT!

  • CherDash

    Need Eye and Mind Bleach, STAT!

  • 64Eva

    Too weird. Any one notice something else: the weird way O pulls Jay back and kinda does a little body bump just as they break the hug? Followed by the blowing of a kiss is just bizarre- Oops never mind, in a different view the bump is caused by Jay patting O on the back-but doesn’t explain the kiss….

  • Leeza Lee


  • $9844146

    Putin hugs tigers, obama blows kisses to Carney. You libs and your messiah. LOL. Too much.

  • MumuBobby

    I think a bow was called for, not a kiss.

  • Dee Brayne

    To me, it looked more like one of those “Godfather” kisses.

  • Thomas Dunlop

    What did you expect???

  • Jean from Texas

    Ohhhh, how very sweet and feminine(?) puke!

  • Jester

    All laughing aside.

    I weep for America…

    Ok, back to the jokes.

  • dareisay

    Looks like the BIG O might be medicated.

  • Steven Gaylord

    Reggie Love has gotta be jealous.

  • Phelony Jones

    Reggie is not going to like that one bit.

  • Maryland_Malcontent

    During the embrace, does obama’s mouth contact Carney’s temple? It looks to me like it comes mighty close…

  • WordsMatter00

    What. The. Eff?

  • #NeverHillary

    BO is as done with carney as he is with any useful idiot that is no longer of value to him……and he thinks the same about the rest of us

  • Seashell

    Yo homie, blow ya later.

      Probably wouldn’t be the 1st time.

  • Cindy Tannen

    it looked like the kiss of death, did you see Jay’s face? its not like Obama’s not from Chicago…

  • Jedd McHead

    I don’t see what the big deal is – he is the “first gay President”, after all.

  • thinker

    Did you see the face carney made???

  • Stuck_in_Ca

    I can imagine the Lewinsky style situations they got into together.
