Barack Obama had a fun time in Colorado, falsely accusing U.S. citizens

Obama, with one terrified commoner.

It’s good to be the President. You can walk into any bar in the land, and everyone has to pretend to be your friend. You can even falsely accuse a U.S. citizen, and get away with it!

Yes, if it wasn’t clear before, it’s clear now: Barack Obama has let the power of the presidency go to his head, convinced his natural charm and charisma can get him out of the toughest tight spots.

It all started when Obama made a surprise visit to The Sink, a dive bar in Boulder, Colorado. Patrons were shocked and amazed to find themselves in the presence of their leader, as numerous social media images show:



Drunk off his fame, the President went mad with power. Like Nixon, he began seeing enemies everywhere. From USA Today:

It’s not every day you get to meet the president — and certainly not every day you accidentally splash yogurt on him.

That’s what happened to one Colorado woman last night when President Obama stopped at a restaurant in Boulder.

As he wiped off the bottom of his pants, Obama told the woman: “Getting yogurt on the president, you’ve got a story to tell.”

However, the young woman named to Obama’s enemies list says that the President is falsely accusing her.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe, student Kolbi Zerbest reported that she was merely an innocent bystander in the chain of events that led to Obama’s yogurt-splattering:

The Secret Service had asked anyone who was drinking anything or eating anything to place it on the ground, where they actually confiscated it from them so that nothing would get thrown at the President. … And so I had placed the yogurt on the ground, and as [Obama] came towards us to shake our hands, a papparazzi came up from behind and kicked the cup, and it got onto the President’s leg.

What do you think? Is there more to this story than meets the eye — perhaps, even, a third yogurt-spatterer?
