Paul Ryan Trolls Obama's Twitter Q & A and Gets Ignored

President Obama ignored questions from Speaker Paul Ryan Thursday during a Twitter question-and-answer session organized by the White House.

As Mr. Obama tweeted replies to friendly questions on topics such as Obamacare and gun control on the hashtag “#AskPOTUS,” Mr. Ryan tried to get in at least two questions of his own.

“What authority do you have to close Gitmo? Even Democrats supported restrictions that you signed into law,” the Wisconsin Republican tweeted to the president. The administration announced Thursday it had transferred another 10 detainees from the Guantanamo Bay facility, to Oman.

Mr. Ryan also asked, “Mr. President, when are you going to present a plan to defeat #ISIS, as Congress has required — by law — that you do?”

Instead, Mr. Obama chose to answer questions such as this one from “ant”: “kobe, mj or lebron”?

The president replied, “love em all, but as a bulls fan got to go with mj. in baton rouge, just met lsu freshman ben simmons - will be great.”

When the session ended, Mr. Ryan tweeted, “#AskPOTUS ended without mentioning the economy, poverty, veterans, ISIS, or Iran. #Priorities”

Does anyone care what either of these traitors has to say about anything?

Ryan, you got used .  He's got what he wants from you . A blank check . Pack your bags. You're done.

Hey Christine I got a question for each one.Ask osama - what kind of skeletal information do you have on ryan that would cause him to suck your gluteus maximus muscles like a starving leech?  AND  Ryan what on this earth is so valuable to you that it would make you turn your traitorous back on the citizens of your home town - your home state & the people of this great country? I would listen to truthful answers to both of those questions. However I am a realist - a truthful answer will never be spoken. So I join with you - I do not care what either of these traitors have to say unless it is - I resign my office. If I lived in wisconsin - I would never - never vote for ryan.

Since you are attacking me and not asking a question in a civilized manner, you don't deserve a response.   Read a book on courtesy.

Uhhhh...Christine...I think it's you that needs to re-read Chester's blog...He was asking Ryan those questions and in a modestly long winded way agreeing w/ you.....

YES SHE TOTALLY MISSED THAT LOW FLYING PLANE ALMOST HIT HER IN THE HEAD

For both

He can't and won't answer the hard questions because he is not used to getting them.  I do keep wondering if he will be the last president.

AMEN to that i am sure we are close now very close 

   Paul Ryan is insignificant just like the "Boner." All his efforts to kiss up to Obamy just got pissed on by there "ONE."

Ryan trying to make a point.  It did not work and no one is impressed.

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
