As his presidency comes to a close, Barack Obama seems to be employing a no holds barred approach when it comes to calling out his Republican opposers: specifically, the right-aligned contenders who'd like to take claim of the Oval Office in 2016. Because Obama has nothing to lose (and the hard-earned respect of millennials everywhere to gain), he just compared the GOP to Internet sensation, Grumpy Cat.
In a speech made at the Democratic National Committee Women's Leadership Forum, POTUS likened the Republican National Committee's "gloomy" picture of America to GC's downcast demeanor. And yes, he made the face. And nailed it. And you need to watch it. Immediately.
"Now the point is, overall, we're making enormous progress. And it does make you wonder, 'Why is it that the Republican politicians are so down on America? Have you noticed that? I mean, they are gloomy. They're like Grumpy Cat," he said before wowing the crowd with his best feline-like frown. "Everything's terrible according to them. We're doomed!"
Grumpy Cat has yet to comment on Obama's impression. Given her silence, we can't help but wonder how she feels: Honored to be mentioned by the president? Offended by being associated with Donald Trump's political party? With a mug like hers, the world may never know the truth.
