Got a question for His Royal Highness? What are you, a racist?

Last Friday, normally a dry news day, provided comedy aplenty. While expounding on why he decided to enact amnesty for many illegal aliens by fiat and against the specific will of America as expressed by Congress, aka “elected representatives”, His Royal Highness was interrupted by a question from a lowly reporter from the Daily Caller. Hilarity ensued, that day and all weekend.

This episode and its aftermath make a great instructive tool, so let’s see what we can gain from a little study. I’ve helpfully broken down the lessons learned into two categories: lessons for dummies, and lessons for Americans.

He might be somebody else’s president. He is not mine. This jackass in the White House, this TOTUS-puppet vacation-smurfing, golf-ball-shanking skinny little freak, is not my president. Here is the fifth reason of 50.
