This should help

The Leader of the Free World takes it very seriously:
My name may not be on the ballot, but our progress is on the ballot. Tolerance is on the ballot. Democracy is on the ballot. Justice is on the ballot. Good schools are on the ballot. Ending mass incarceration, that's on the ballot right now.

And there is one candidate who will advance those things. And there is another candidate who's defining principal, the central theme of his candidacy is opposition to all that we have done.

There's no such thing as a vote that doesn't matter. It all matters. And after we have achieved historic turnout in 2008 and 2012, especially in the African-American community, I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down it's guard and fails to activate itself in this election. You want to give me a good send off? Go vote! And I'm going to be working as hard as I can these next seven weeks to make sure folks do.
And if there's someone well versed in personal insults, it's our president:

Obama's policy legacy is a tattered ruin, but he's a handsome man so his picture will look very nice in the history books.

I just shook my head at the quote offered up from his comments on the recent terrorist attacks here, that they "want to inspire fear". Instant thought of "no sh*t, Sherlock". Why the press treats this guy has having an IQ above room temperature is beyond me.

I'm sure Hillary is saying, "Thanks for nothing, Mr. Brexit Hussein Obama."

A handsome man? That's how we're electing Presidents now??? If so, I think we could have done a LOT better, and of course Hillary is immediately disqualified.

If I were black, I think I'd be glad to pass on a personal insult to the demagogue in Chief. Just sayin'.

Come to think of it, I think I'll do that even though I'm fishbelly white!

Well, look at the evidence. I don't think it will apply in 2016, because both candidates are freaky looking.

Well, OK. You are correct. Mr. Obama's outward appearance is a matter of personal taste and I just don't see it. Likewise, there is a apparently a large swath of our population who looks at his policies and personal peccadilloes and finds /those/ attractive. Somehow it all escapes me. I could understand him being elected in some Bizarro-world, but not in our reality.
