#Obamashomeboys‬: Obama’s ‘homeboy from Illinois’ remark is comedy gold


If anything was ripe for mockery, President Obama’s absurd remark today certainly was. As Twitchy reported earlier, President “Barry from the Block” Obama said this about a supporter dressed as President Lincoln: “Abraham Lincoln is in the house. My homeboy from Illinois.” No, for reals. This is not The Onion.

The mocking was swift!

Yessss. He's black again. RT @Obama2012: President Obama in Cedar Rapids: “Abraham Lincoln is in the house. My homeboy from Illinois."

And then #Obamashomeboys began as Twitter users decided to remind President Obama who some of his actual “homeboys” are. The list isn’t pretty. But, hey, at least none of them are icky Swiss, right, Lefties?

It has been said that you can judge a man by the company he keeps. Reading through the list of #ObamasHomeboys should concern us.
