What won't Fox Nation mock?

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

Not content with mocking President Obama for honoring a school bus driver who spends his evenings feeding the hungry, Fox Nation takes aim at the President's "extended birthday weekend with the boys":

Fox Nation readers reacted predictably. This one was a bit less subtle than Fox Nation's own headline:

I have no idea what this one even means:

And here's another classy entry:

Now, why was Barack Obama spending time with basketball players Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah? Was he just hanging out with his "boys" for an "extended birthday weekend," or is that just a bunch of bunk?

It probably will not surprise you to learn that that's just a bunch of bunk:

President Barack Obama pulled together an informal dream team of current and former basketball superstars Sunday. But only a few people got to see it.

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and other NBA all-stars joined Obama in Washington to entertain wounded troops.

The present-day stars were joined by some retired legends, including Bill Russell and Magic Johnson. College player Maya Moore of the Connecticut Huskies women's team also played.

The game was played for a group of "wounded warriors" - troops injured in action - and participants in the White House's mentoring program. It took place at a gym inside Washington's Fort McNair, a short drive from the White House. The president was inside the gym for about two hours.

So, Barack Obama brings together some professional basketball players to entertain wounded troops, and Fox Nation portrays him as simply having "his boys over" for an "extended birthday weekend." Nice.
