Obama on the ‘fourth quarter’ of his presidency: ‘I have something that rhymes with bucket list’

Published

on

President Barack Obama poked fun at himself and at the press during the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday night, and more than a few of his jokes left some of the Washington press corps with their jaws open.

He ran with the notion that the’s entering the “fourth quarter” of his presidency, and so he has less patience to deal with an intransigent Congress and other problems.

“People ask me, Mr. President, do you have a bucket list? Well, I have something that rhymes with bucket list,” he quipped. “Take executive action on immigration? Bucket. New climate regulations? Bucket.”

McConnell bluntly defends working with Trump to undermine impeachment: ‘We’re on the same side’

Published

Speaking in Kentucky on Friday afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blithely blew off concerns about coordinating with Donald Trump's White House on how to handle the president's defense in the expected impeachment trial.

One day after admitting on Fox News that he was working hand-in-hand with the White House on impeachment tactics, McConnell was very blunt about his motivations when asked about his admission.

In a clip shared by MSNBC, the Senate leader was pressed about his plans.

"You told Sean Hannity last night you were coordinating with the White House when it comes to impeachment. Why is that appropriate?" McConnell was asked.
