– And the latest
presidential video project, well it’s getting a lot of attention, but perhaps not in the way
the White House intended. – [Narrator] The President, joking around with a selfie stick. Selfie stick, selfie stick. – [Woman] President Obama
appeared with a selfie stick. Critics called it undignified. – [Man] A lot of
conservatives especially said this is not presidential, this
is beneath the presidency, why is he doing this,
he’s demeaning the office. – [Man] Quote, a fool
proof way to make yourself look like a self absorbed ass clown. (dramatic music) – You know, it’s said that
Ronald Reagan wouldn’t even take his jacket off in the Oval Office, but now we have a Commander in Chief that’s doing jump shots and
actually, what is a stick, selfie I mean, it’s ridiculous. – Tonight’s question of
the day, what do you think of that selfie? – Yeah, that’s your president. He’s got a selfie stick. – [Woman] One conservative tweeted quote, remember when the office of
the president had dignity? And another wrote quote,
this definitely is a new low for our juvenile president. – Here’s the leader of the free world, the guy we trust with
the button for the nukes, acting like a 12 year old. – It is ridiculous, it is beneath the President of the United States, but I think he thinks he can do no wrong. – It is not only not befitting, but imagine what Reagan would
have done in this situation. – [Man] He’d point a selfie
stick in the White House. That’s befitting the office? – I just don’t have words for that clip. – Are we seeing a changing of the guard? Is the office not gonna be as
dignified as it used to be? (patriotic music) (upbeat music)

    Tan suits? Bicycle helmets? Selfie sticks? Unbelievable. Quite honestly the worst behavior I've ever witnessed from a president. These outrageous scandals should have brought this asshole down! Real Presidents lie to the masses, screw porn stars,shit on our allies and cozy up to our enemies and attack the poor and lower income and somehow convince them to vote against their own interests. Jeez Obama, get a clue

    Reagan would have been right up there with him in the selfie. The man had a sense of humor. I feel like Republicans don't even know who Reagan was, they just have this idealized version of the perfect conservative they have slapped his name on.

    I'm from England and I can't believe a news channel such as Fox News even exists. It literally is the most trashiest, toxic-minded, hate-filled, uninformative, unreliable, unprofessional, pathetic news channel I've come across. In fact, it hurt my brain to see just a few clips of it.
    And to think a sizeable portion of the American population watch this explains why the US is a country with so many social problems which a lot of it is actually solvable but in the name of "freedom" and "profits" they're harming their own communities.
    To the decent Americans out there, GOOD LUCK living with Fox News viewers.

    Man, conservatives were so mad President Obama "acted like a child". I guess they were equally as pissed when Trump got behind the wheel of a firetruck and proceeded to act like a child. Or Trump's daily use of childish insults. The kind you would hear on an Elementary playground (i.e. Crooked Hillary, Sleepy Joe Biden, etc.). What's that you say? They aren't outraged and instead celebrate Trump's childishness and write it off as Trump "shaking things up"?! I am clutching my pearls in shock!

    • State Department email. In an effort to evade federal
    open-records laws, Obama’s first secretary of state set up a private
    server, which she used exclusively to conduct official business,
    including communications with the president and the transmission of
    classified material. A federal criminal investigation produced no
    charges, but FBI Director James Comey reported that the secretary and
    her colleagues “were extremely careless” in handling national secrets.

    • Operation Fast and Furious. The Obama Justice Department
    lost track of thousands of guns it had allowed to pass into the hands of
    suspected smugglers, in the hope of tracing them to Mexican drug
    cartels. One of the guns was used in the fatal 2010 shooting of Border
    Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Congress held then-Attorney General Eric
    Holder in contempt when he refused to turn over documents about the
    operation.

    • IRS abuses. Mr. Obama’s Internal Revenue Service did
    something Richard Nixon only dreamed of doing: It successfully targeted
    political opponents. The Justice Department then refused to enforce
    Congress’s contempt citation against the IRS’s Lois Lerner, who refused
    to answer questions about her agency’s misconduct.

    • Benghazi. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were
    killed in the attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Libya. With less
    than two months to go before the 2012 election, the State Department
    falsely claimed the attack was not a terrorist attack but a reaction to
    an anti-Muslim film. Emails from the secretary later showed that she
    knew the attack was terrorism. Justice Department prosecutors even
    convinced a magistrate judge to jail the filmmaker.

    • Hacking. Obama presided over the biggest data breach
    in the federal government’s history, at the Office of Personnel
    Management. The hack exposed the personnel files of millions of federal
    employees and may end up being used for everything from identity theft
    to blackmail and espionage. OPM Director Katherine Archuleta, the
    president’s former political director, had been warned repeatedly about
    security deficiencies but took no steps to fix them.

    • Veterans Affairs. At least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting
    for appointments at a Phoenix VA facility, many of whom had been on a
    secret waiting list—part of an effort to conceal that between 1,400 and
    1,600 veterans were forced to wait months for appointments. A 2014
    internal VA audit found “57,436 newly enrolled veterans facing a minimum
    90-day wait for medical care; 63,869 veterans who enrolled over the
    past decade requesting an appointment that never happened.” Even Obama

    admitted, in a November 2016 press conference, that “it was
    scandalous what happened”—though minutes earlier he boasted that “we
    will—knock on wood—leave this administration without significant scandal.”

    All of these scandals were accompanied by a lack of transparency so
    severe that 47 of Mr. Obama’s 73 inspectors general signed an open
    letter in 2014 decrying the administration’s stonewalling of their
    investigations.

    One reason for Obama’s penchant for secrecy is his habit of
    breaking rules—from not informing Congress of the dubious prisoner swap
    involving Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and the Taliban, to violating restrictions
    on cash transfers to Iran as part of a hostage-release deal.

    The president’s journalistic allies are happily echoing the
    “scandal-free” myth. Time’s Joe Klein claims Obama has had
    “absolutely no hint of scandal” in his presidency. The media’s failure
    to cover the Obama administration critically has been a scandal in
    itself—but at least the president can’t be blamed for that one.

    internal VA audit found “57,436 newly enrolled veterans facing a minimum
    90-day wait for medical care; 63,869 veterans who enrolled over the
    past decade requesting an appointment that never happened.” Even Obama

    admitted, in a November 2016 press conference, that “it was
    scandalous what happened”—though minutes earlier he boasted that “we
    will—knock on wood—leave this administration without significant scandal.”

    All of these scandals were accompanied by a lack of transparency so
    severe that 47 of Mr. Obama’s 73 inspectors general signed an open
    letter in 2014 decrying the administration’s stonewalling of their
    investigations.

    One reason for Obama’s penchant for secrecy is his habit of
    breaking rules—from not informing Congress of the dubious prisoner swap
    involving Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and the Taliban, to violating restrictions
    on cash transfers to Iran as part of a hostage-release deal.

    The president’s journalistic allies are happily echoing the
    “scandal-free” myth. Time’s Joe Klein claims Obama has had
    “absolutely no hint of scandal” in his presidency. The media’s failure
    to cover the Obama administration critically has been a scandal in
    itself—but at least the president can’t be blamed for that one.

    I love this playlist. I mean Trump literally parades around with a tie hitting the fucking ground, goes to show that Fox isn't media, it's satire and propaganda.

    For real new people get with the times. He's just a person. Maybe you guys need to talk about something that's more more important then what the president was doing in his office. How about let's focus on the homeless people in the United States the children that are being taken and put in foster homes and orphanages that only take the kids in for their money or how about the women or the husbands that are killing their wives and children get real is every right to take a picture of himself it's not like you know he got wankered off in the Oval Office like Clinton did my card get a life
