President Obama Makes Light of IRS Scandal


by Onan Coca

President Obama went to MSNBC this week to face the hard-hitting journalists that reside there. The man who drew the short straw was none other than Chris “thrill-up-his-leg” Matthews, who spent his time drooling over the President and tossing softballs meant to make the President appear Presidential.
