President Barack Obama has been making his rounds on network television to make his case to the American people why they should support the candidacy of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Obama has made no secret that he loathes Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, as Obama has called Trump unqualified for office numerous times.
Taking a more comedic route Obama appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and the two engaged in rhetorical questioning about which snap foods Obama would prefer to enjoy. Colbert asked, “Now sir, because we are on a network television show I cannot allow you to endorse a candidate right now. But I do, I would like to ask you about your choice of snacks, could I do that?” Obama said, “sure” while playing along.
Colbert, who was wearing an outfit of a haberdasher from the 1920s continued, “Alright, great! I have two choices for you here. Would you care for an extra fiber nutrient bar which has traveled to more than 100 countries, or this shriveled tangerine covered in golden retriever hair, filled with bile, that I wouldn’t leave alone with the woman I love?”
Clearly Colbert was attempting to contrast Hillary Clinton as the fiber bar, which is boring and not particularly tasty, but gets the job done in terms of satiating a hungry belly, and Trump as the tangerine which was so disgusting no rational person would choose to eat it — assuming those two were the only options. Obama concurred and said, “Well I think I’ll go for the fiber nutrient bar.”
Everyone in America should go for the nutrient bar.
