Today is former President Barack Obama’s 60th birthday, so a very happy birthday, Mr. President, and thank you for all of the many things you did to make this country better during your two terms in office.
Not everyone, however, is happy about the fact that President Obama is turning 60 and holding a birthday party. Some of them are downright angry and even jealous.
A perfect example would be Newsmax host Greg Kelly, who thought he’d suggest that Obama has never had to work hard and is basically just a lazy black guy who managed to get ahead in life due to the color of his skin.
Here’s how Kelly started his rant about the former president:
Of course, what Kelly neglected to add is that Obama was in such excellent physical condition that he didn’t have to break a sweat. Apparently, the folks at Newsmax prefer fat pigs who eat KFC and Big Macs endlessly as head of state, especially since that presents such a stellar image to the rest of the world.
However, Kelly was only getting warmed up with what turned out to be an incredibly racist diatribe. He continued:
How many classes has Greg Kelly taught at an elite law school? Probably none. And he also neglected to mention that Obama graduated from Harvard Law School and was even editor of Law Review, the highest honor any law student can receive.
Of course, President Obama has also written some best-selling books, but that doesn’t impress Kelly, either:
Well, at least he didn’t need a ghostwriter like some other presidents we can think of and even name, especially since they only got one term in office and left the country a wreck.
There was also this pathetic attempt at slagging Obama:
Again, the jealousy. Kelly wishes he could have attracted the attention of a woman as brilliant and classy as Michelle Obama.
Basically, Greg Kelly took an entire segment of his poorly-watched show and let the world know that he cannot stand the fact Barack Obama has accomplished more in his 60 years than 99.9% of conservatives ever will. And he also didn’t file for bankruptcy multiple times or say publicly that he was attracted to his daughter when she was 13.
Happy Birthday, President Obama. And thank you for still driving the right-wingers crazy.
