President Obama Quoted ‘Caddyshack’ In His Statement About Harold Ramis

Chicago lost one of its finest yesterday, when comedy legend Harold Ramis passed away at 69 (his final punchline?) from complications arising from vasculitis. Earlier this morning, President Obama, another Chi-town legend who knows better than to call it “Chi-town,” memorialized the Ghostbusters writer in a press statement, and even slipped in a subtle Caddyshack reference.

Naturally, the nice moment has already been ruined by critics saying things like, “If Ramis received total consciousness on his deathbed then he would have renounced his earlier support of the fraud Obama,” which is a real thing a real human wrote, because IS OBAMA A PINKO BUDDHIST? MASS HYSTERIA.
