Barack Obama Gets The Steven Spielberg Treatment At The 2013 White House Correspondents' Dinner!

Barack Obama showed off his comedic chops during his speech at Saturday night's White House Correspondents' Dinner, but that was far from all of the HIGHlarity he brought to the event!

In fact, he also proved that he's a pretty impressive actor, as seen during his appearance in a parody video of Steven Spielberg discussing his cinematic 'follow-up' to Lincoln, chronicling our current President's life and starring notorious method-actor Daniel Day-Lewis in the title role!

That's right, folks! Get ready to watch Barack Obama playing Daniel Day-Lewis playing Barack Obama (above)!

And the LOLz didn't stop there!

He's more than keeping his word!

He is NOT messing around! Nor should he be!

In the wake of a 20-year-old gunman's massacre of 27 people, 20 of them children, at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut Friday afternoon, President Barack Obama promised the devastated community that "if there is even one thing that we can do" to prevent something like this happening again that "we have a deep obligation, all of us, to try."

And he as ALREADY started doing just that, by announcing today that Vice President Joe Biden will be spearheading a multi-agency group to tackle the problem of widespread gun violence in the country…with proposals ready to be pushed into legislation by JANUARY!

As the President explained:

Obama Administration Launches LGBT Website, Leaves Marriage Equality Out Again!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikBarack Obama

barack obama launches lgbt website

This is a positive step in many ways, but Obama STILL refuses to give the marriage equality issue the attention it needs!

Earlier this week, President Barack Obama issued a proclamation for LGBT Pride Month, which tackled a bunch of important issues in the LGBT community, BUT he didn't mention marriage equality OR the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

Now, Obama's administration has launched a website dedicated to the LGBT issues mentioned in his proclamation, but marriage equality is STILL not being addressed!

With regards to the marriage equality issue, Obama has said that "he is 'evolving' on and 'wrestling' with the issue."

Here's what White House press secretary Jay Carney has said about why Obama hasn't announced public support for marriage equality:

"The president has said in the past what his position is. It hasn’t changed. And if it changes, I’m sure he’ll let you all know."

We support the launch of the Obama administration's website, but if they're going to put this much effort into supporting the LGBT community, why not go all the way and back marriage equality as well? Think about it, Obama!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
