Obama teases Republicans after Benghazi hearing against Clinton backfires
President Obama thinks the Republicans are like Grumpy Cat.
The president made the call back to the hilarious internet meme, in which a cat is wearing an intense scowl, when talking about the Benghazi hearings conducted by the Republicans into the actions of Hillary Clinton. The hearing has largely been lambasted in public opinion as nothing more than a political ploy to try to knock Clinton down in the polls in her run for president.
In talking about the political “witch hunt,” Obama said that the Republicans were just generally negative, not just toward Clinton but toward America. “Overall though, we are making enormous progress and it does make you wonder why is it that Republican politicians are so down on America,” he said. “Have you noticed that? I mean they are gloomy. They’re like Grumpy Cat.”
The president then made the perfect Grumpy Cat face.
