Once again, the hashtag stops here. President Obama is holding a Twitter chat this afternoon.

There is some confusion over which (failed) hashtag will be used.

obamamy2ktweet

D’oh! Tweeting, like leading, is hard.

Either way, the hilarity will surely ensue as both hashtags are taken over. Again.

And, hijack alert!

Oh, both hashtags will fail … for the president.

We predict that the hilarity, however, will be epic. Keep it coming, Twitter!

Update:

Obama’s hard at work on his laptop:

And the hijacking is fully, officially underway!

All great questions. And all too inconvenient to be answered by our very busy and important president.

Meanwhile, if we’ve learned anything from this little chat session, it’s that President Obama definitely needs Twitter supervision:

Yep. He totally did:

Yeesh.

Update:

Once again, the White House offers pathetic “proof” that Obama was totally doing stuff. All on his own!

OK, so maybe not all on his own. Presidential tweeting: It takes a village.

    I guess graduating Magna Cum Laude from Twitter U is not all it’s cracked up to be.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      I think they spent too much time Googling themselves.

      • EOD

        Googling with ones self… Well, there may be a second Nobel Laureate asterisk in Obama’s resume on the horizon.

        • Fred Fumducker

          Googling with ones self sounds almost perverse.

      • Vennoye

        Googling or ogling?

        • lainer51

          oops… didn’t see yours first…. great minds think alike, so they say.

          • Vennoye

            Yep….bet, if we ever get this person out of the white house they will have to pry the mirrors off the ceiling!!

          • $36544368

            I say we raze the whole place and start over!

      • lainer51

        or ogling….

  • o0Nighthawk0o

    BO needs to work on typing skills. 40 minutes in and has only answered 5 questions. Maybe ‘answered’ is not the right term. Acknowledged may be better as they aren’t really answers.

    • lainer51

      maybe he is typing with “one hand”..

      • Let’em Crash

        I can image him furling his brow and grinding his teeth while hen pecking a keyboard.

    • Let’em Crash

      After 20 minutes of Obama reading his tweets aloud without doing anything,his aides had to remind him it isn’t a teleprompter.

    • sandi730

      He has to keep patting himself on the back!!!

      • lainer51

        lol

  • o0Nighthawk0o

    All done. 40 minutes to answer 7 questions about the fiscal cliff and ended answering a sports question. What a joke.

    • W Randall

      …and he will interpenetrate it as win for the people…or at least the sheep half of the country.

    • lainer51

      too bad Costas didn’t end with a sports question (which is his JOB). He chose to end with an anti-gun commentary!!! Twit!

  • Streetiebird

    Just remember when hijacking: If you get suspended, blame it on a vast left-wing conspiracy.

    • Zane Henry

      Because, you know, dissent is unpatriotic NOW.

      • Streetiebird

        Dissent is very patriotic. But it should be based on fact, not fantasy. And hijacking a twitter hashtag is not exactly dissent…

  • Suz Butrad

    We’d be better off if he used the 2k as toilet ; no telling what a WH roll costs!

  • o0Nighthawk0o

    Using an Apple to post? That is the perfect symbol of government spending. A PC could do the same job, better for 1/3 the price.

  • W Randall

    Does he really think I want him or Congress taking advise from the left half of the country that were stupid enough to vote for him??? Oh God what a mess!

  • William Ellis

    If my member could tweet, I wouldn’t need a job.

    • RightThinking1

      Rofl….

      • lainer51

        over & over!

    • RightThinking1

      Anyone old enough to remember The Buster Brown Show?
      I am reminded of Andy Devine telling Froggy to ‘Plunk his magic twanger”

    • $36544368

      If your member could tweet, you’d have a very interesting job that would probably pay quite a bit…LOL!

  • pairadimes

    “Tweet your member”. Isn’t that what cost Anthony Weiner his congressional seat?

    • lainer51

      Now I know why Barry played golf with Bubba this weekend – needed a few “tips” on speakin’ the language.

  • tredglx

    The title Head Twit fits this president so very well…

  • Zane Henry

    My what strong, bony hands and such manly, delicate wrists you have, Mr. President. There’s never been a callous on those hands, either, I’d wager.

    • louisiana_mom

      From the lack of school records, I would even wager there was never a writer’s callous on his hand either.

      • Zane Henry

        I just realized that my own writer’s callous had disappeared. I’m almost scared to test my penmanship. I can’t remember the last time i wrote something over a sentence with a pen/pencil.

    • lainer51

      Mom Jeans and callous on hands would be an oxymoron.

      • Zane Henry

        I had all but forgotten about the mom jeans. wonder if the waistband chaffed his armpits.

        • $36544368

          ROFLMAO!

  • my preciousss!!

    he can read? and type? i towt…..

  • Super 88

    I, for one, would like to have #My2k to keep from Obama. Perhaps he could take a break from chasing away all those nasty, greedy, rich people and give them a chance to hire me.

  • BeeKaaay

    Typical leftwingwacko PRESENTdent. HE can’t make up his mind on which hashtag to lie with.

  • H_mmm

    ‘Tweet your member’ Isn’t that what Nero did while Rome burned?

  • Burt Zerker

    Obama can tell you everything that he knows about being a president in 140 words or less,.. much less.

  • http://3dblogger.typepad.com/wired_state Prokofy

    I’m not getting why tweeting legitimate questions about the president’s ideology and policies is called “hijacking”? Why isn’t it “participating” critically? Are you really implying that if anyone beyond the carefuly-picked libertarian/leftist fanboyz of the White House is asking the questions with the hashtags, it’s a “hijack”? Shame on you. That’s unfree.

  • sandi730

    HA HA Who is going to hold his golf club????
