    "When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose......sometime....like when Donald Trump does it. But when Barrack Obama does it, it's OK."

    According to our special needs, neutered liberal dogs it's okay for Barack to say or do whatever he pleases because...well...he is black.

    Ha! How about when every American was bullied into the ACA because Dems had the power to approve it with zero GOP support?

    "Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners, and if we kick 'em all out, you'll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts," she said enthusiastically, "which are not the arts."

    Someone should tell Meryl that Fox NFL Sunday crushed the golden globes in ratings.

    Ratings: Green Bay Packers Beat Giants, Golden Globes

    And MMA is almost nothing BUT "outisders and foreigners" that Ms. Streep expects to wash her toilet and trim her hedges.

    The NFL is proportionally Blacker, at roughly 70%, than Hollywood at roughly 5%. Population is 12%.

    Using the same four Black guys over and over does not count, Meryl.

    Seriously ? You're going to compare some ancient 1-line, 1-off where Obama says his bowling skills are special Olympics-worthy with Trump's lifelong, daily, bully-boy, insult comic dog act ? It's what you idiots love about the guy. It's who he is and what has gotten him where he is. But now you're going to try to pretend it's not his thing and no different than anyone else ? gtfo

    I've never been much of an Obama fan but he did apologize immediately to the head of the US Special Olympics for his comments. Regardless of what you may think of Obama it's pretty hard to argue that he made that comment to denigrate handicapped people. He's pretty classy when it comes to stuff like that. So for what its worth I'll give him credit and the benefit of the doubt in this case.

    Oh come on quit playing dumb, we all know what "Special Olympic Quality" means.

    And what exactly did Ms. Streep do Sunday night. She used her position of influence and wealth to impart her thoughts and beliefs upon those of us who don't share it. But we of no wealth or position and do not have the same platform or audience that she has, must go to Hoopla.

    Quite frankly, it's silly to blast Obama or Trump for such comments. But we ALL know that the MSM is fine with Obamas comments but would have attempted to tear Trump limb from limb had he said the same thing.

    Yes Obama did the classy thing and apologized even though he probably didn't need too. He was making a little joke and only overly sensitive people or people with a political axe to grind took it any other way. But that is the world we live in. SJW's pop out of bed in the morning just looking for shit like this they can complain about.

    But, I also have to say the Trump thing was overblown too. He wasn't mocking a handicapped reporter, that is just the way he talks about everyone he thinks has done something stupid. Check out Gavin McInnes explaining it and makes sense. Especially when you see all the times Trump has done the exact same voice and hand waiving gestures when referring to many different people with no handicap what so ever. It's just the way he speaks. I can certainly see how that one clip can be taken as Trump mocking disabled people, but when you look at more than just one clip you can see he does that with everybody.

    The whole video is pretty good, but the relevant clips start at about 6:15 if you don't want to watch the whole thing.

    Guys remember it's ok when the left is racist/sexist/ableist or whatever buzzword they want to come up with, because they have "good intentions" unlike the evil right!
