Strangeness

Maybe somebody can explain to me why President Obama stooped to an interview with GloZell Green (incredibly, a graduate of the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in musical theatre) — aside from the fact that she is a YouTube sensation, that is. Who are her fans, anyway?

Check out this famous GloZellvideo: GloZell's Cereal Challenge, too weird on so many levels (hat tip to Bunkerville):


9,772,780 views? Are you kidding me?  I couldn't manage to watch the entire thing!

The January 22, 2015 GloZell interview of President Obama was held in the White House:




GloZell is quite subdued in her interview of the President and even asked some valid questions. Nevertheless, what does the President's reaching-out-to-YouTubers say about the leader of the free world and about American culture today?

If this pathetic display is indicative of American culture today, I'm going to have to become a hermit!

  3. Even worse is how it was covered around the world. No longer does something as absurd as this stay in the family. Obama should have known better. The world laughed at us with Kerry and his strange choice of James Taylor. This only adds to the perception that we are no longer a serious Nation.

      I wasn't aware of that! He must be a laughing stock, then.

    2. The USA has been a laughing stock (as in split your sides laughing) since 2008 when this racist, anti-American, moslem activist, teleprompter Jesus imbecile was elected. When he was elected a 2nd time, you'd think at least 2 billion people would have actually DIED laughing.

    3. Kid,
      What a great comment!

      But is he an imbecile in the sense that he doesn't know how much damage he's doing to America, particularly the middle class?

    1. I don't have an issue with the entertainer. Such is pop culture today. She's entertaining the lowbrows, so God bless her.

      I'm one of those old fashioned people who still believes that whoever occupies the presidency should strive to uphold the dignity of the office.

    2. I philosophically agree......but given the way our party driven system actually works.......the office itself hasn't held any dignity or gravitas for quite some time.

    3. I guess if he'd not dissed on meeting Netanyahu but would meet with the green--lipstick, Fruit Loop swimmin' wonder, that gets to be problematic.
      I'm hoping split screens of his meeting with her and her swimming in milk and cereal aren't broadcast too much around the world.

      But how can anyone think that inviting GloZell to the White House to interview the President of the United States is a good idea? What message does it send to young people who are academically minded?

      For the life of me, I can't understand how GloZell has become a YouTube star?

      Delete
    6. Z,
      In my view, the President's interview with GloZell demeans the Office of the President of the United States. Do other world leaders do this sort of thing?

    7. AoW, I bet in places like Italy and Brazil they probably do things that would make the GloZell interview look like an episode of Firing Line.

    8. Yeah! We're no better that Italy, Brazil, or South Crapistan, right Jersey?

      AOW: It's sick, but then , Obama's gang are the same people who sold to us with a straight face the ludicrous lie that we would arm the "good" Syrian terrorists, and they would simultaneously vanquish the Assad regime and ISIS.

      Delete
    9. At least the Italians and Brazilians colons aren't all stuffed up with phony, hypocritical American puritanism.

      JMJ

    10. I don't know what puritanism has to do with it, and you obviously don't know much about Italy or Brazil. Italy politics has its sex scandals, but everybody is not all cool with it, and Brazil is much more straight-laced that people like you think, who know nothing about Brazil besides carnaval.

  6. My sentiments regarding this sort of thing were encapsulated in this bit of verse the Muse dictated to me last summer. You'd better not look too closely at the acrostic, however, because it's bound to offend all whose minds have been conscripted and surreptitiously indoctrinated by the Cultural Marxists. In today's Europe and probably in Britain too by now, it would doubtless earn me a stiff jail sentence.


    _________ DIAGNOSIS _________


    Stopping Racism today’s believed
    No harm, but only good could ever do ––
    Of Paramount Importance. –– We’ve deceived
    Innumerable millions, brought them to
    The point where kicking over all the traces
    A counterfeit Altruism now prevails:
    Zig zags must be viewed as straight, so races
    Ill-informed may proudly fill their sails ––
    Reject all hope of Mental Elevation ––
    Enjoy, instead, White Perquisites unearned ––
    Given –– by “The Rich,” whose education,
    Goading them to see all Privilege spurned,
    Informed them they should not be what they are.
    Now, Prehistoric Depths loom not so far.

      Either hopped-up or downright stupid -- those are the only reasons for attacking an armed man.

      Not long ago, I spoke to an immigrant from China about Michael Brown. This Chinese fellow can't figure out why everybody can't see that Brown "had it coming" and particularly objected to the use of the phrase "unarmed teenager," a phrase which he saw as deceptive.

  9. It's not like obama is going to talk to a smart person, or anyone that doesn't fit his support group profile right?

    'this one' and you other litards... stupidity doesn't win the day forever. Enjoy it for now, but it's not going to last. And if it does, you'll be the ones suffering the consequences because us smart people will find ways to insulate ourselves. You'll find yourself in a leper colony of worthless idiots. Then who will buy your food for you.

    1. Kid,
      I hope that your second paragraph comes true!

      As for Obama's interview with GloZell, it seems to me that Obama is seeking adoration or something very like adoration. He loves being the center of attention, and that's one reason that he's always in campaign mode.

      Delete
  10. I spent a few moments today looking around the web to see what the Leftists are saying about this interview. The Left's position seems to be that those of us who are puzzled the Obama would so demean the office of President of the United States don't understand pop culture. What is there to understand about filling a bathtub with milk and Fruit Loops, then eating one's way through the cereal?

    A few Leftwing sites state that people who have posted negatively about the interview. I can't speak for everyone else in the group of the puzzled, but I certainly am not angry.

    Frankly, Obama interviews with YouTubers isn't something to get angry about. Not worth raising one's blood pressure. That said, I must say that the first time I heard that GloZell was coming to the White House to interview the President, I thought, "This can't be for real! Must be something from the Onion."

      Your point is well taken.

    I think the righties are all foamed up over this only because Mr. Obama is involved.

    Curious. I don't see anything on the right wing blogs about John Boehner's traitorous action in going behind Mr. Obama's back and secretly inviting Bibi to speak in Congress to try to interfere with very delicate negotiations with Iran.

    When I read that Boehner's excuse was that Mr. Obama did the same in going around Congress in the deferment immigration issue, the ninnies who agreed with that excuse failed to recognize that Mr. Obama was very much up front in telling Congress and everyone what he would do. Also, Congress can override whatever Mr. Obama does by exec. order. How do the president and America override the damage Boehner would do to this country by interfering with foreign policy?
    Or about the righties going nuclear and unloading their full arsenal of bile on Mr. Obama’s refusal to attend Netanyahu planned March speech before Congress.
    That is all to subtle for certain pinheads to understand.

      He or SHE, and I believe it's a female impersonator came here or was sent here by (you know who) and just conveniently dropped that line
      " conservative racists).

  26. Gone are the days of frivolous #bringbackourgirls hashtags. Instead, Barack Obama attends to truly pressing issues by granting interviews to #YouTubeAsksObama.
    And any other FRUIT-LOOP..
    So while ISIS lines up teenage boys girls in front of firing squads for watching soccer games and Boko Haram kills thousands, with her green lipstick and occasional Ebonics the self-proclaimed “Queen of YouTube,” but my proclaimed idiotic ass-hole comedian and Internet Queen GloZell Green interviews the president.
    The BIG buxom GloZell is renowned for YouTube videos such as My Push up Bra will help me get my man; How to Draw Perfect Eyebrows; and GloZell’s Cereal Challenge, where the curvy woman with the unruly curls writhes around in a bathtub filled with Fruit Loops and milk.
    Sad to say, but at this juncture it seems natural to utter the words Obama and Fruit Loops in the same sentence.
    Nonetheless, during the mesmerizing interview, reminiscent of Obama’s “if I had a son” Trayvon Martin reference, GloZell told the president that, to keep her husband from getting shot by the “po-po,” And all I can cay is OY, WHAT THE HELL HAS THIS COUNTRY COME TO!
