Today President Obama answered a question from the press about Senator Cruz and his statement following the attacks in Brussels. Cruz stated that law enforcement needs to be empowered to “patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods before they become radicalized.” Obama’s answer to a question about that was ludicrous.

As far as the notion of having surveillance of neighborhoods where Muslims are present, I just left a country that engages in that kind of neighborhood surveillance. Which, by the way, the father of Senator Cruz escaped for America, the land of the free. The notion that we would start down that slippery slope makes absolutely no sense.

Oh do you mean the communist dictatorship that you just left, Mr. President? Oh. Oh the one where you watched baseball and did the wave and hung out while Muslim terrorists from a radicalized neighborhood in Brussels were murdering people? Yes? The baseball game place? Is that the place you just left? Oh. I guess that’s a point. That Ted Cruz’s father fled the country where you were just living it up having a grand old time that you didn’t allow to be interrupted by silly little domestic squabbles involving Islam. That country. That’s an argument you could make, I suppose.

If Ted Cruz bothers to respond to this dumb statement, I suggest he talk about fathers, too. I can’t recall, what religion was yours, Barack Hussein? What was your step-father’s religion? It has slipped my mind. Well no matter, I’m sure it’s not relevant. Not nearly as relevant at Ted Cruz’s father is to a discussion of Islam. No doubt, no doubt.

OHHHH SNAP YOUR PARENTS CAN BE INVOKED TOO!!

Self-awareness, Mr. President. It’s a thing. Look it up. And maybe get off parents. After all … well you know the rest of that joke.
