President Obama

The World's On Fire ...

But I Still Got Time for CP3!

7/21/2014 2:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0721-chris-paul-obama-04He's got drama in Gaza ... outrage in Ukraine ... but President Barack Obama still made time to hang with NBA superstar Chris Paul in Washington D.C. today. 

Just minutes after delivering a speech on the situation in Ukraine on the White House south lawn ... Obama went to the Walker Jones Education Campus to meet with the L.A. Clippers to participate in a town hall focusing on the importance of the 'My Brother’s Keeper Initiative.'

FYI -- the MBKI is a program aimed at providing "boys and young men of color" with mentoring, support networks, and the skills they need to find a good job or go to college and work their way into the middle class.

Obama was all smiles during the event -- where he was introduced by Paul himself. 

After the event, the President went to the East Room to award the Medal of Honor to Staff Sgt. Ryan M. Pitts for his heroic action in Afghanistan.

Too bad this Marxist sack of crap can't play the violin. Really too bad that in 2016 the trash in the USA -- now at approx 50% -- will vote in whatever democrat they trot out so they can continue sucking the country dry like the worthless parasites they are.

That's our boy partblack hussain saving the world one political, self serving photo op at a time. Notice didn't see a pic of the Medal of Honor winner, oh wait, I almost forgot how much partblack hates the military. Wonder if he put the soldier's family in the back rows behind his political buddys like he did the last time. Thyought rosa parks explained that it's a do-bad to do that!!!!!

Typical TMZ trying to stir up something and inflame idiots to comment with bigotry. I guess this is journalism huh? It's legitimate policy. Apparently a person can't multitask. A lot of these fools here believes the President of the United States should fly out to Gaza and jump in front of a middle to stop the madness. Knock it off TMZ you know better. Stop exploiting and inflaming these poor idiots. Kings of divide and conquer tactics.
