Former White House photographer shares 'Obamagate' images as proof of Obama's heinous crimes

On May 11, 2020, a reporter from the Washington Post asked President Trump:

"Mr. President, in one of your Mother's Day tweets you appear to accuse President Obama of 'the biggest political crime in American history by far.' Those were your words. What crime exactly are you accusing President Obama of committing, and do you believe the Justice Department should prosecute him?"

President Trump answered with the most tremendous non-answer in the history of non-answers:

"Obamagate. It's been going on for a long time. It's been going on from before I even got elected. And it's a disgrace that it happened. And if you look at what's gone on, and if you look at now, all of this information that's being released. And from what I understand, that's only the beginning. Some terrible things happened, and it should never be allowed to happen in our country again.

And you'll be seeing what's going on over the next — over the coming weeks. But I — and I wish you'd write honestly about it, but unfortunately, you choose not to do so."


Miraculously unfazed by this response, the reporter asked again: "What is the crime exactly that you're accusing him of?"

Trump refused to say what Obama did wrong, saying only, "You know what the crime is. The crime is very obvious to everybody. All you have to do is read the newspapers—except yours."

Take that, lamestream media! How dare a reporter ask the president questions? It's only his job. And why would you expect the president to directly answer a question about something as mundane as accusing a former president of committing the worst political crime in history?

Clearly, if you're a sitting president and you believe your predecessor committed a serious crime, a Tweet on Mother's Day is exactly the place and time to announce it. Not.

And why would Trump have to even know that the crime is? We have thousands of conspiracy theory-pushing minions and Russian bots and ranting YouTubers to take care of those pesky details. Duh.

Besides, we don't need an answer. We have ample photographic evidence of the heinous crimes Obama committed while he sat in the Oval Office. In fact, his own White House photographer has leaked a bunch of them on Instagram. (Thank goodness for social media or we'd never know what's true!)

Pete Souza shared two collections of photos that are so damning you might want to sit down before you look at them.

Reaching over a glass shield at Chipotle? HE'S the one responsible for the spread of this pandemic, isn't he? I bet he had the novel coronavirus dripping off of that finger. #ThanksObama

Feet on the desk? How dare he?!

LOCK HIM UP!

LOCK HIM UP!

He used a selfie stick, people. A SELFIE STICK. It's unprecedented. How is anyone okay with this? Wake up, America!

And this hat? This hat is A CRIME THAT SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.

And just look at how sneaky he is. Did he not think we were going to notice him holding his wife's hand? Does he think we're all a bunch of gullible sheep? We can see the truth with our own eyes. WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO HIDE HERE?

That's not even the half of it.

Sitting on a desk? So immature and unpresidential. Thank goodness he's not around to embarrass the nation and sully the office of the presidency with his press briefing meltdowns, Twitter tantrums, and cyberbullying anymore.

Oh wait...just scratch that last part.

And look at him riding a bike without a helmet. Why does he think he's above the law?

Pete Souza/Instagram

Even when he did wear a helmet, he wore belted khaki shorts with socks and soccer slip-ons, which has to be illegal.

These dad jeans—who does Obama think he is?

But this right here, this is the final straw. A tan suit? Does he think that just because he's finer than fine, he can get away with whatever he wants? No. The American people will not stand for this affront to the rule of law.

If you swipe through the Instagram collections and view all of the evidence with an open mind, there's no way you can say that the man doesn't deserve hard jail time. He and everyone who was conspired with him in these outrageous crimes should be locked up.

After all, who would know better than the White House photographer—who also happened to be White House photographer for President Reagan—who followed the President around day in and day out for eight years and took 1.9 million photos? Nobody, that's who.

Thank you for revealing the truth at the heart of Obamagate, Pete Souza. America deserves it.

Inside the walls of her kitchen at her childhood home in Guatemala, Evelyn Klohr, the founder of a Washington, D.C.-area bakery called Kakeshionista, was taught a lesson that remains central to her business operations today.

"Baking cakes gave me the confidence to believe in my own brand and now I put my heart into giving my customers something they'll enjoy eating," Klohr said.

While driven to launch her own baking business, pursuing a dream in the culinary arts was economically challenging for Klohr. In the United States, culinary schools can open doors to future careers, but the cost of entry can be upwards of $36,000 a year.

Through a friend, Klohr learned about La Cocina VA, a nonprofit dedicated to providing job training and entrepreneurship development services at a training facility in the Washington, D.C-area.

La Cocina VA's, which translates to "the kitchen" in Spanish, offers its Bilingual Culinary Training program to prepare low-and moderate-income individuals from diverse backgrounds to launch careers in the food industry.

That program gave Klohr the ability to fully immerse herself in the baking industry within a professional kitchen facility and receive training in an array of subjects including culinary skills, food safety, career development and English language classes.

Just imagine being an 11-year-old boy who's been shuffled through the foster care system. No forever home. No forever family. No idea where you'll be living or who will take care of you in the near future.

Then, a loving couple takes you under their care and chooses to love you forever.

What could one be more thankful for?

That's why when a fifth grader at Deerfield Elementary School in Cedar Hills, Utah was asked by his substitute teacher what he's thankful for this Thanksgiving, he said finally being adopted by his two dads.

To the child's shock, the teacher replied, "that's nothing to be thankful for," and then went on a rant in front of 30 students saying that "two men living together is a sin" and "homosexuality is wrong."

While the boy sat there embarrassed, three girls in the class stood up for him by walking out of the room to tell the principal. Shortly after, the substitute was then escorted out of the building.

While on her way out she scolded the boy, saying it was his fault she was removed.

One of the boy's parents-to-be is Louis van Amstel, is a former dancer on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars." "It's absolutely ridiculous and horrible what she did," he told The Salt Lake Tribune. "We were livid. It's 2019 and this is a public school."

The boy told his parents-to-be he didn't speak up in the classroom because their final adoption hearing is December 19 and he didn't want to do anything that would interfere.

He had already been through two failed adoptions and didn't want it to happen again.

A spokesperson for the Alpine School District didn't go into detail about the situation but praised the students who spoke out.

"Fellow students saw a need, and they were able to offer support," David Stephenson said. "It's awesome what happened as far as those girls coming forward."

He also said that "appropriate action has been taken" with the substitute teacher.

"We are concerned about any reports of inappropriate behavior and take these matters very seriously," Kelly Services, the school the contracts out substitute teachers for the district, said in a statement. "We conduct business based on the highest standards of integrity, quality, and professional excellence. We're looking into this situation."

After the incident made the news, the soon-to-be adoptive parents' home was covered in paper hearts that said, "We love you" and "We support you."

Religion is supposed to make us better people.

But what have here is clearly a situation where a woman's judgement about what is good and right was clouded by bigoted dogma. She was more bothered by the idea of two men loving each other than the act of pure love they committed when choosing to adopt a child.
