On Broadway Obama takes a bow mocking Republicans
NEW YORK (AP) — coming into view on Broadway just for one night: Barack Obama, in a solo comedy act roasting the Republican Party.
President Obama left a crowd of more than 1,300 in stitches on Monday evening at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, house to the hit musical “Hamilton” about Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. The cast staged an extraordinary presentation for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser, with Obama as the encore.
Conflicting from his typical fundraiser spiel, Obama said the 2016 Republican presidential candidates seem to “occupy a different reality” in which the country has taken a risky turn since he took office nearly seven years ago.
“According to them, everything was excellent in 2008, when we were going through the worst economic crisis in our lifetimes,” Obama said. “This, apparently, was the golden age that I messed up.”
“And they’re so glum,” Obama added, hardly containing his feelings about the GOP cast of characters seeking his job. “They’re so frustrated.”
Tweaking Republicans who question climate change, Obama likened it to having 99 out of 100 doctors tell somebody they have diabetes and having that person brush it off as a conspiracy.
“All 99 of those doctors got together — with Obama — to try to prevent me from having bacon and doughnuts,” Obama said to laughter in the ornate Times Square theater. “It’d be funny — except this is about climate change. It was an analogy.”
