Editor’s note: This post has been updated to correct the wrong premise of the post. The original title of ‘This is a joke, right?’ New York Post: Comedy writers don’t make fun of Obama because he is ‘completely unmockable’ has been changed to the current title which more accurately reflects the NY Post article.

The author’s intent was erroneously mischaracterized. We regret the error and apologize to Mr. Smith. We are also including his tweets here:

Mr. Smith’s article, which actually takes the entertainment industry to task for shielding Obama, can (and should) be read here.

Unfortunately, no.

Apparently not.

Then again.
