President Obama has been acting more and more like a king instead of an elected official, so the White House finally gave him a throne.
In one of the weirder moves by this Administration, a photo showing Obama as a king seated on a throne during a staff meeting was shown at last week’s White House Correspondents Dinner, then tweeted by the White House.
“This year I’ve promised to use more executive actions to get things done without Congress,” Obama said to the dinner audience. “My critics call this the imperial presidency. Truth is I just show up every day at my office and do my job. We’ve got a picture of this I think.” Then he showed the image, getting a laugh from the members of the press, who, let’s face it, are among his biggest fans.
Some genius had the idea to then tweet the photo of Obama, on throne, crown in his lap as if he is about to crown himself. Big laughs again from the Obama trolls.
It’s not so funny, though, to the average American, which is probably why the big media aren’t running the photo.
The throne is apparently a duplicate from the cable show “Game of Thrones,” in which assorted fantasy tyrants vie for the throne of Westeros, made from the swords of conquered kings.
Critics have noticed for years the trend in which Obama’s actions increasingly resemble those of a tyrant rather than those of an American president.
“I’m afraid that President Obama may have this ‘king complex’ sort of developing, and we’re going to make sure it doesn’t happen,” Sen. Rand Paul said in January.
In his State of the Union speech, Obama came right out in front of the world and said he would use executive orders to nullify Congress. “Wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do,” he said in remarks that thrilled Democrats and horrified Republicans.
In practice, though, the Congress has done nothing to stop Obama’s ongoing power grab, thanks to the Democrats and to a go-along RINO leadership on the other side of the aisle.
Recently, Sen. Ted Cruz came out with a list of legal abuses by the president, comparing Obama to King George III. “The Declaration of Independence had, I believe, 26 abuses that King George had committed against Englishmen,” Cruz said. “Well, this particular report lists 76.”
Obama and his supporters aren’t concerned with his illegal abuses of power. In fact, they’re proud of them.
If the Congress doesn’t step up soon, the next photo of Obama with throne and crown might not be a joke.
