Barack Obama's been called a lot of things including socialist.
Although 25 years ago he would have said cool and -- -- the -- but nothing compares to what the president says about himself in directly.
At a recent fund raiser he spoke of Aaron Sorkin the guy behind newsroom that self -- -- and arrogant leftist and brought to you by bill Mars at network HBO.
He said Aaron Sorkin who writes the way every Democrat in Washington which they spoke Aaron.
Making it's a left wing -- prop is really Obama's secret dream fantasy which is kinda creepy I mean the only people that they.
Newsroom is cooler -- beat poets in the four remaining brain cells in Dan rather's head.
Incredibly the president doesn't -- newsroom -- something to avoid like Ebola but it said something to aspire to how could someone who supposedly went to Columbia.
-- lot believe in this cried.
And so I must add might -- voice to those calling -- Obama to release his college transcripts there's got to be some explanation for -- grown man wants the world to be a freshman dorm room we fantasy.
-- not wrong mr.
As are known to be the most brilliant president since Thomas Jefferson.
He was a president I think -- Let's see -- stellar grades because again that's Smart you couldn't -- the news room of course it could be another explanation that the show.
Is how Columbia and Harvard see the world as well.
Which explains why Obama thinks slogans and Windmills we'll get -- a second term.
Everybody says he's so Smart.
But his favorite show was onto -- and this a favorite show -- -- and now he loves the show.
I don't know one person who watches the newsroom Andrea and says is any good and -- Out liberals among -- keep.
Yet it's not that good actually like -- to -- Greg's got caught me in that category public thinking.
-- I do I like it but -- -- essentially saying that Aaron Sorkin is smarter than he is.
Right he's writing a way to Democrats wish that they could speak -- Obama secretly wished that he had Sorkin brain -- last night I was sitting around and I -- Connecticut is just north of here but I heard a large sucking sound in that room not only did he suck up to Sorkin.
He sucked up -- and Hathaway in the that's what it is he sucks up to celebrities the 1% -- like it.
You like you like I like I don't I don't actually used by now I think I would not act like I like to see guys like to see the liberal brain -- -- -- -- Got -- comical it's fun to watch it is fun to watch I watch the first episode 4040 minutes of it and I I threw up.
Metaphorically anyway how to be fun to watch I have an intestinal crises when I -- what did you take to the big you know a little bit of the great like you -- young -- -- that you are sorry -- there and Brad triple helping of solvent.
-- -- -- this is proof he kind of lives in a make believe world.
It but let's talk about.
Or not the greatest artist but does this you keep coming back to his fund -- these Hollywood people.
Mitt Romney had twice as many fund raise in July as Barack Obama did we don't talk about that for some reason.
He had won and Israel with a budget diamond merchants we don't know the names and second the -- Brothers who have put who -- the right wingers or right wingers and -- and in my became doesn't say that.
And then he was in London who raised -- is made a dollar and nobody knows you went to the so at least in in a Barack Obama's case she knows there you -- make fun -- you can make all the rest that thing but in Mitt Romney's world.
Everybody gets hidden including his taxes that's -- -- He really is an outsider not and it is -- actually George Clooney who was in Switzerland for.
President Obama fundraising there for him so had an opener was there are not accidentally emphasis of the room with a happier -- -- to say it's it's the equivalent of what you're just excited and -- Ronnie what a victory literally not so she's raises money.
No -- -- -- and also like I love the dog whistle of the diamond merchant and how they think -- -- knowing you're talking about it got that.
It's just anyway no that's gonna talk about Sweden right but I -- Things about -- Aaron Sorkin to a tweet that that was a bit of everything is that it talks to about how people love a great speech but governing actually is.
A lot more tedious and yet to find compromises and it's -- hard and it's a slog.
But it's -- staff is giving the great wonderful speech for everybody claps yeah it's actually got like on the in the west wing and it was a great show I love it but.
It's not reality I like George Clooney to.
Yeah I think he's where the white house correspondents' dinner and of one of those who shake his hands at this clinic.
I like your work exactly -- -- to be out notes -- hand.
On fox go like that -- yeah all right enough I -- dropping.
Zero -- -- was what you did I don't remember one minute and a half I zero dark thirty the trailers released sick -- to -- a movie about bin Laden -- want to roll some of this.
The whole world's gonna win in this.
-- -- Angie at the end of this trailer does it say -- Barack Obama and I approve this message but yeah.
But it might as well actually wondering who is playing him in the movies they're gonna have this big part about how he was sitting grappling it is that's -- what to do and how he made the call and I'll probably make him a click here or not not coming off the golf course excludes the -- out of -- and he again as they haven't made an image I watch this -- all of -- -- -- sees it she's a great filmmaker but the fact I mean that the.
The question is is the timing they had to push it after the election not only that Greg is you know there's a lot of -- allegations that the White House is leaking inside details and classified information to care -- about.
About what actually went on and that is that's -- laid -- in the trailer because all of this redacted stop by the way -- I saw the credits at the end it says executive producer Barack Obama.
-- but any final thoughts.
Yeah -- -- -- was motivated Colin bin Laden period can't.
Fair enough you'll see a good movie you know about about you know real heroes -- policy act of valor yeah yeah that's those are real -- -- -- -- at.
That's -- -- -- it that's about the talking Teddy bear.
That's correct I went undelivered -- -- like Bob I think you're drinking days and doesn't look at it but I coming.
