As Twitchy reported, President Obama found a way to turn Rev. Clementa Pinckney’s funeral into an opportunity to push for gun control. Because of course he did.

And lo, the media fawned. Oh, how they fawned. Especially when he opened his mouth to sing:

Cox pre-emptively let us know she was joking:

Jonathan Capehart had himself a wicked case of the vapors:

And Ron Fournier practically wrote a poem:

Barf bag … can we get a barf bag?

Isn’t this fun?

Does it matter? When the president speaks — or sings — you listen. Well, when it’s this president, anyway.



‘I thought this was a eulogy’: Obama uses Clementa Pinckney funeral to push — you guessed it! — gun control
