You should move to Venezuela in protest over your white privilege.

Why should I move there? Trump is just as much of a buffoon and this is my country too. I know, Trumpers only think that it is the prerogative of white, male, Christian, straight, cisgendered people who support Trumpism to protest anything. Or to report on anything.

Eh, probably just my imagination. It's obvious this is the first time a President has done such a thing.

Clearly, because Obama said or did nothing of the sort.

Quote:PRESIDENT OBAMA: It's very hard for me to swallow that one. First of all, I've got one television station entirely devoted to attacking my administration. I mean, you know, that's a pretty...

HARWOOD: I assume you're talking about Fox.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, that's a pretty big megaphone. And you'd be hard-pressed, if you watched the entire day, to find a positive story about me on that front. I think that, ultimately, my responsibility is to provide the best possible decision making on behalf of the American people at a time where we've got a lot of big problems. And, you know, we welcome people who are asking us some, you know, tough questions. And I think that I've been probably as accessible as any president in the first six months--press conferences, taking questions from reporters, being held accountable, being transparent about what it is that we're trying to do. I think that, actually, the reason that people have been generally positive about what we've tried to do is they feel as if I'm available and willing to answer questions, and we haven't been trying to hide them all. I do think that, you know, we can't be complacent, and that as long as we've got these tough problems in place that not only journalists, but the American people are going to keep on asking, you know, whether or not we're delivering. And they understand it's not going to take us just a few months to get out of the hole that we're in; but, you know, I suspect that as time goes on, with high unemployment, with the economy still slow, that, you know, people are going to be continuing to expect results. And I welcome that. That's why I took the job.

I'd be interested in a list of non-white, female lead, non-judeo christian, gay, transgendered people lead countries that, for instance, put people in space. Or won two World Wars.

Hell, I'd be happy for an example for a country led by people as described that just had the trains run on time.

For discussion purposes.

Of course you will, because your point is wrong. And your incapable of admitting that. If you were right, you would have saved yourself more embarrassment and put forth some evidence if Obama had actually "threatened to shut down a network who criticized him repeatedly".

But since he didn't, You. Can't.

Wait a sec... are you saying BHO did NOT try to have FOX removed from media events?

Will HuffPo work for you?

White House’s Fox News Boycott Attempt Prompts Network Revolt

Quote:As for the White House, it continued its confrontational tone with Fox News while also denying any attempt to bar them from yesterday’s interview, TPMDC reports:

“This White House has demonstrated our willingness to exclude Fox News from newsmaking interviews, but yesterday we did not,” said White House spokesman Josh Earnest
* * * * *

The White House attempted to block Fox News from a round of interviews with “pay czar” Kenneth Feinberg Thursday, but the Washington bureau chiefs of the five TV networks included in the White House pool refused to interview Feinberg unless Fox News was included.

Quote:The decision by the network bureau chiefs to stand with Fox News is one of the first instances of the mainstream media defending Fox News against the White House’s claims.

Iceland, Belgium, Serbia, and Luxembourg have been pretty well run when led by an openly LGBT head of state.

BTW, Alan Turing did a lot to win WW2. After the war, they castrated him as his reward for his service...
