Obama Isn’t at the Official 70th Anniversary of VE Day Ceremony in D.C. Because He’s Visiting the Nike Factory in Beaverton, Oregon

Steve Springer and Pam Springe dance the jitterbug at the National World War II Memorial during VE Day commemorations May 8, 2015 in Washington, D.C.

In that case, can we be sure that second-in-command Joe Biden will be at the ceremony, which is being held at D.C.’s WWII Memorial?

Nope. He won’t be there either…

420,000 Americans were killed during WW II.

    Is the nike factory near a Golf course?

    • John

      A golf course? The factory is probably close to three of four of ’em.
      On any case, VE day is so white privilege

    • Raymond Cameron

      Do they make golf shoes?

  • John

    I want that suit!

    • JoKeR

      That Zoot Suit is the cats meow!

      • Reader

        No it’s not.

        It’s the bee’s knees.

  • Martin B

    America won on VE Day. Obama isn’t celebrating, because he wants America to lose.

    He’ll probably spend VJ Day golfing in Hawaii.

    • He’s such an insensitive clod.

      He doesn’t even get the optics of it.

      He doesn’t care.

      • mauser 98

        no, he gets the optics

        yes , he does not care

  • Billy Bob Thornton

    Since Biden is there, at least someone will be representing America.

    Remember Obama is a lame-duck.

    Presidents usually are in their second term because usually the other side has control of the House and Senate in most cases.

    So this is not a shock to me.

    Obama I feel should have been there for an event like this.

    He could be a no-show nowadays to help Hillary. The more Obama is seen the more his party is damaged.

    • Clinton

      Billy Bob, Biden’s not there either. If you read the linked article,
      you’ll see that the administration sent a fairly low-level official,
      Susan Rice, to the event.

      • Billy Bob Thornton

        Oh okay it is Susan Rice. Thanks.

      • Oh God…

      • Minicapt

        She does have an office in the White House.


  • FactsWillOut

    Am I being censored now?

  • FactsWillOut

    WTF’s up with censoring my comment?

  • JoKeR

    Obama has a long history of ignoring patriotic events.

  • Dana Garcia

    Obama isn’t into American excellence, He prefers diversity.


    • Frau Katze

      Good pic.

  • ontario john

    Harper was in Europe earlier for celebrations but I haven’t noticed Trudeau or Mulcair at any. I guess Justin couldn’t find his old man’s german helmet.

    • SCORCH!

    • Canadian

      Mulcair probably went to the victory parade in Moscow…

    • Canadian

      Just-in might be found at some mosque, whoring for votes.

  • DD_Austin

    Okay. don’t ever buy nike
    let that be the price of inviting that POuS over

  • The Goat

    It’s almost like he’s a Kenyan or something.

    • JoKeR

      You think?

  • Clink9

    Not a real President. Just a radical douchebag taking up space in the White House.

    He will be just sad piece of history soon.

  • disqus_W6sfZCiOd8

    FactsWillout:” WTF’s up with censoring my comment?” I missed that. I wonder what the comment might have been.

    • FactsWillOut

      I’ll try again.

    • FactsWillOut

      Only 3 European countries actually experienced total war: the UK, Russia and Germany.
      The UK and Germany have forgot about what total war actually means in their welfare state daze. Russia has not.

    • FactsWillOut

      It was the word “l o t u s”, as in “their Marshall plan l o t u s eating welfare state daze.

      • Frau Katze

        Simple explanation: we’ve been getting hit with spam lately and BCF tried to stop it by banning words. That was one on the hit list.

        But they are very clever and keep changing word, email addresses, IP addresses.

        Be sure to flag any spam you see.

        • FactsWillOut

          Will do!

  • El Martyachi
    • The past generations in Britain fought a war and then rebuilt a country.

      What has that moron done?

    • Frau Katze

      Laurie Penny is a tw@t.

  • Americans of all stripes defeated the very fascists Obama emulates.

    Of course he won’t honour the glorious dead.
