    Why Can't Obama act "politically incorrect"?

    We've seen "the Donald's" lowering of the politically incorrect bar down to the gutter. For this Donald has been praised by many. Yet if Obama acts even slightly politically incorrectly he is viciously verbally abused by the same people who support Donald's political incorrectness. Why?

      What Obama is doing now is not politically incorrect, it simply incorrect for a president. It isn't etiquette, it is not helping the country or the people.

      How does turning on an ally, or provoke a war Help?

      Brad
      You're talking about Donald right? We are already on the edge of nuclear and other war even before his inauguration.

      I don't even know what Obama said or did. All I mean is that if his opposition sees it as politically incorrect (whether it actually was or wasn't) they'll make a cheap shot out of it. Anything to throw stones at the opposition. It goes both ways.

      Generally speaking it seems as if Donald can do anything grossly inappropriate and get away with it. Eg  If Obama said "grab p**sy" he'd be lynched and never be president.

    it defies logic. trump should have been out when he made fun of that reporter. but then, limbaugh got big ratings making fun of michael j fox, who has parkinsons disease....who said anything to him? hes still a right wing powerhouse. obama has to walk on eggs. obama had to denounce his pastor, trump can BE a birther! same goes for hillary. she had to walk on tippytoes. talk too loud, shes an angry woman. be too forceful in her views, shes an aggressive female. but trump the great white male hope, why he can brag about sexual assault and become the president of the usa.

    its because the right has superiority complex, plain and simple. they are better, and so dont have to comply with any of the rules the rest of us are punished by. very simple. its white privilege, male privilege and christian privilege.
    thankfully, its a vanishing control mechanism. the sadism we witnessed under bush was more than enough.
    trump will not be treated so forgivingly. his meaness is out in the open for all to see. people wont be silent this time.

      We have the same phenomena here in Oz.  The right all believe they have "divine right to rule" like 17th century aristocracy.
