I’ve been thinking a lot about the meeting between Trump and Obama at the White House, and here’s the thing.

Obama used to be a law professor. This is key.

Law school is so, so different from college.

In college, everyone expects there to be a “syllabus day,” kind of a grace period where they can show up and get the lay of the land, figure out the bare minimum that they can get away with, the TA gives everyone their office hours, there’s an introductory lecture, and everybody leaves a few minutes early to go take a nap or something. You do the bullshit assignments, you say something in class now and then to get your participation check mark, and figure out how badly you can do on the final and still pass.

But see, in law school, all the methodologies you’ve spent the last 17 years operating under go out the window. Day one of law school is you being thrown into the deep end of the pool—you’ve had a homework assignment for two weeks now, and it’s to read the first 200 pages of your casebook. And now it’s you and the teacher (who is usually as smug as Alex Trebek) gauging and assessing what you managed to absorb while you skimmed through all those pages of reading so you could hurry up and get to the other 150 pages of reading for your next period class, in front of 50 people who are all smarter than you. And if you fuck up, or you didn’t do the reading, you are at the mercies of not just the professor, but the silent satisfied judgment of your peers.

Law school is hard, and it will make you feel stupid and tongue-tied and like you don’t know anything and can’t form an argument—because you don’t, and you can’t. Everybody there has had a 4.0 since birth. Everybody there was the smartest kid in their class, and you’re all rabidly competing for a sliver of a chance at something down the road. It’s petty, and savage, fiercely entrenched in a culture of formalities and ceremony, and exactly like Washington DC.

Yesterday when I was driving home, the NPR reporter talking about the Oval Office meeting mentioned that Trump had thought it was going to be a “getting to know you” type meeting, but that he was surprised when Obama stretched their talk out to 90 minutes before sending him along to the Capitol building where he met with congressional leaders for more lengthy meetings and stuff he didn’t want to do.

And he hasn’t even gotten to the actual job yet.

So think about that as we go into this.

Trump walked into the Oval Office like a two-pump-chump freshman thinking it was syllabus day, and what he got was the first day of law school, and he hadn’t done the reading like everyone else had, and Professor Obama decided to put him in the hot seat.

This was Obama’s chance for the most perfect revenge that would never be picked up on as revenge at all. He was gracious, polite—everything he needed to be for a peaceful transition and a good review from the press. And that would continue when the doors were closed, because that’s the key. Not a Come to Jesus meeting, oh no. If Obama were smart—and he is very smart—he would have treated Trump like an equal, and brought the discussion to a level that assumes far more of Trump than anyone has so far. Assumes that he’s an adult who’s been paying attention. Statistics, esoteric minutiae about the executive branch procedure, economic growth numbers, labor figures, domestic policies, countries Trump has never even heard of, shit that would never in a million years have been in Trump’s campaign soundbites or digestible summaries.

No way to escape. No aides to remember any of it for him. Just the two of them.

Because that’s what would strike a precise chill into Trump. The thundering realization that he’s woefully unprepared for the hard, boring, thankless reality of this, and Obama’s version of a smooth transition won’t and shouldn’t include remedial civics.

That’s what I saw when they shook hands and Trump stared at the floor instead of looking back into Obama’s face. He’s just figured out how little he knows about any of this.

And that should give you a small glow of satisfaction, because after those meetings, Trump definitely has the 1L Terror Shits. In January, the night sweats and insomnia will show up, but for these first few weeks—nothing but diarrhea and self-doubt.

Skimmed this post. Fellating Obama (of all people) is the sign of a weak mind. All his educational records are sealed, likely because he was a C student and it messes with his image as a 'smart' guy. He's ridden the affirmative action wagon all the way to the Whitehouse, and you let it happen.

Anonymous 16/11/13(Sun)09:53 No. 20 ID: 623d24

Being a C student in law school is still far more impressive than being an A student in business school.

That's why there are so many more businessman jokes than lawyer jokes.

Did Trump ever release all his educational records? Or are they still sealed?

This is the 3rd fanfic I've read so far about how that stupid 90-minute meeting went.

My best guess was that Obama tried to get a sense of what Donald Trump is planning to do. For his part, Obama is planning to stay in Washington (unlike people with the decency to yield to their successors) to provide leadership for his party and protect his legacy. A long chat with the president-elect would make sense with this in mind.

Obama welcomed Donald to the White House, "Good to have you, Don. Lets get down to the brass tacks."
"Alright Barack, put it to me straight." Trump replied, and sat himself in a comfy antique sofa.
"Your gonna get pounded Don, pounded by your enemies, pounded by your collegues, pounded by the very people who put you in office. POTUS takes a lot of pounding." Obama explained to him.
"Don't I get to do some pounding myself? I'm gonna pound ISIS, pound illegal immigrants, and pound China until they give our jobs back!" Trump defiantly exclaimed.
Three secret service agents silently entered the room.
"No, Don, you only get to do the pounding out of office. Here, they all pound you." Obama said with a hint of an insidious tone.
"Maybe if you'd held on to Iraq a little longer, closed Guantanamo Bay, come up with a national health care system that works and not taken TPP in the ass, you wouldn't have been pounded so hard." Trump rebutted.
"You're right, Don. I got pounded the whole way through; maybe I even deserved it. Still, you're about to find out what a real pounding feels like." Obama said as he stood up and unbuckled his belt.
Two of the Secret Service agents took Donald by the arms and slammed him on a coffee table. Then the third stripped him from the waist down.
"What the hell Barack, this isn't politics--it's weird!" Donald cried out.
"Tell that to Putin when he comes to visit. Russian security will make you his sissy little girl." Obama declared, and then anally raped him for almost nintey minutes.

Yeah, fucking Obama, how dare he not pull his children from the schools they've been attending for 8 years mere months before they'll graduate.

Grow a fucking heart.

If that's what it's about and he leaves town after they graduate, then I will eggknowledge this post.

It started slow at first. "This is how Hillary pounded me in the 2008 election, with her cock." Obama whispered in his ear.
Donald felt the head of Barack's penis touch his butthole. It was 'uge, a 'uge black cock about to penetrate his virgin mangina. "Back off Barack!" he hissed, wishing he could build a wall around his anus. "Arghh!" he groand as the head of Obama's dick entered his colon.
"You sure she didn't pound you after the debates, Don?" Obama teased, "You know she was hard as a rock after each one."
"I won those debates! I won the election! and--ARGHHH--I'll kick your ass Barack!" Trump shouted back as wave of pain and ....pleasure... came over him.
Obama was like a two-by-four; Trump could tell it had been eight years since Barack was on this side of a pounding. His anus ached, stretched, and tore. It seemed to go on forever, as every inch of Obama's cock slowly, slowly pressed on.
Just as Trump was about to faint, he felt Obama's thighs on his ass. "There it is Don, that's what it feels like to be president, having an eight inch cock rammed up your ass all day." Barack said as he pulled out, ever so slowly.
"Hurnnggh; but I know how to--urrgghhn--win; I'll--urggghhhnhn--repeal every act you ever made--grrrhnn--even this!" Trump struggled with his feelings--he was starting to see that Obama was right. This political stuff is rough, and nasty. This is what he signed up for; there was only more where that came from. Obama began to thrust more quickly and Trump started panting; they were beyond words already. Trump realized he'd be spending a lot of days with a dick in his ass from now on, getting slammed and slammed like his two-bit whore wife. Maybe it was like this for every president he thought; maybe they all got pounded.

There's always the fact that he's publicly stated that the reason he's staying is because of Sasha. For. 3. Years.

Lawyers are stupid beyond belief. Lower money to judges and lawyer 99% and ideally 100% by replacing with logic software. Let all men out of prob n jail from Bill Clintons insane violence against women act. It is totally ok to smash the shit out of a woman if she hits you first. Self D fence.

Sorry to terminate this thread's 18 month voyage to the last page, but Obama is still on the scene.

He's just signed a deal to make a new communist entertainment and messaging branch for Netflix.

So much for just seeing the kids through high school.

From Trump onward, being a celebrity is ever more a requirement of a successfull presidential run. Not just rich, not just politically connected, but on TV enough that half the dupes in the country already know your name and face. The Obamas are revving up the Democrat's propaganda machine in response to the Republican's success. They can't treat Faux News like a joke anymore--too many dupes take that shit seriously now.

I say fair game, but as usual third parties lose out: no celebrity third party candidates that anyone cares about.

If the Libertarians got George Clooney to run in 2020, do you think they'd have a chance?

Anonymous 18/05/27(Sun)22:46 No. 793 ID: 4089f6

No, people have already proven they'd rather bitch about how the two major party candidates suck than actually vote for anyone else.

That's kind of exactly what they said after Bush the younger was elected. "Only the politically connected can be elected now."
Then, Obama wiped the floor with them by way of grass roots campaigning.

Also, people will always listen to opinion based journalistic dog shit from both sides of aisle as long as they convey a sense of authority on the matter.

Trump was originally running as an independent before he gained so much steam that the Republicans didn't dare refuse him access to the GOP primary for fear of splitting the conservative vote.

That picture always makes me think someone could dress an albino gorilla and a chimpanzee in suits and recapture that exact moment.

Anonymous 18/05/29(Tue)01:53 No. 797 ID: 1b00e8

Obama was always a lot more connected than the conservative propaganda made him out to be. He was also rich, and what he really revolutionized was turning small, online donations into a significant campaign fund--something every candidate since has sought to emulate.

People probably thought celebrity would be a requirement after Regan too, but that was a time when the two parties still had differences that mattered and US politics wasn't entirely identity-driven. Now that we're putting caricatures of ourselves in the White House, we're never going to elect a qualified leader again. We'll only elect people we can dupe ourselves into believing are people similar to us, like all those working-class strawberries who thought Trump's campaign promises to revive heavy industries were for their benefit.

Did you read your own post?

Politicians have been duping suckers into believing they're just your average joe since the dawn of the election cycle.

Only today they can reach an endless supply of suckers because internet.

That's pretty much what I posted, except to point out that there's nothing new about it. Yeah, the "everyman" shtick is old, but at least before mass media I could excuse people for not really knowing much about the candidate's personal lives. Now it should be the most embarrasing and shameful ruse that no politician could ever pull off with a straight face, but it seems to work even more effectively than ever now that they can smear that bullshit all over the country in nanoseconds.

Anonymous 18/05/29(Tue)17:45 No. 801 ID: 7274a1

Mass media has been around since the 50's, but it used to have a censor for lies and inappropriate opinions.

Since the internet anybody can spread whatever bullshit they want about anything across the world and some people will believe it because they're stupid or biased or gullible or too lazy to do they're own research.

Actually no, it really started in earnest in the 80s when the Fairness doctrine was abolished by Raygun. Without that the entire right wing media fantasy bubble would never have been allowed. The internet was just the cherry on top.
