Grumpy Cat. You know him. You love him. He’s famous. Famous enough to be name-dropped and channeled by none other than the leader of the free world.
Speaking at the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington on Friday, President Obama shifted smoothly into stand-up mode when discussing Republicans, calling them “gloomy” before bringing up everyone’s favorite forlorn feline and even offering an impression.
“Why is it that Republican politicians are so down on America?” Obama wondered. “They’re like Grumpy Cat.”
Obama went on to discuss what he termed “a separate reality” created by Republicans and compared it to The Twilight Zone. He also made multiple references to a variety of statements made by republicans as “crazy.”
Whichever way you lean on the political spectrum, be confident in knowing that if your pet is really good at looking annoyed or frustrated or even grumpy, the President of the United States may well give him or her some very powerful dap.
