Obama ‘Jokes’ About Using Drones At WH Correspondents Dinner

May 4, 2010: Economic Policy Journal – May 3, 2010

At Saturday night’s White House Correspondence Dinner, President Obama delivered some very funny lines (written by others), but about 10 jokes in he jokes about killing people via drones.

He mentions that some hot teenage music group was at the dinner. He then mentions that his daughters were big fans, but warns the group to stay away and tells them he has drones. They sneak up on you, he says.

Now, if I am actually killing people (and sometimes hitting innocents) with drones, I would think basic decency would prevent me from joking about drones on a nationally broadcast event. As a matter of fact, I can’t see how you could ever joke about drones, if you really take seriously the fact that you put killer drones in the air to kill people. Does this President have any clue as to how serious the use of drones are?

UPDATE: Here’s what the President said: “The Jonas Brothers are here; they’re out there somewhere. Sasha and Malia are huge fans; but boys, don’t get any ideas. Two words for you: predator drones. You will never see it coming. You think I’m joking?” (4:33 into video)

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: Reminiscent of the Bush WMD ‘joke’ at the same dinner event while he was presidentObama (Soetero) also ‘jokes’ about his approval ratings still being high in the country of his birth (Kenya), the healthcare bill, death panels and more. This is in your face, people… – SJH
