BRITAIN: Prince Harry Interviews Obama [VIDEO]

The Week reports:

Britain’s Prince Harry has interviewed former President Obama for a radio show set to air later this month. Though recorded in September, the first teaser clip of the conversation was shared by Kensington Palace social media accounts Sunday.

Clocking in under a minute, the short video sees Obama and the prince joking as they prepare to begin their interview. “Do I have to speak faster, because I’m a slow speaker?”

Obama asks. “Do I need a British accent?” Harry assures him that won’t be necessary, but warns against leaving Obama’s trademark “long pauses between the answers.”

    OT: Dear TCM: I’m totally cool with you running commercials in blocks to avoid disturbing my movie. However, if you tell me that Christmas in Connecticut starts at noon and you’re still dicking me along at 12:15 PM and Ben hasn’t even started his long-winded intro, you have to realize I’m going to be pissed.

    Kthxbai.

    • safari

      Why this movie?

      • Treant

        I like Barbara Stanwyck.

        • safari

          That’d be…

          • safari

            You’ve convinced me to watch

          • Gustav2

            It’s fun.

          • Treant

            She plays Elizabeth Lane, the lady who’s the Martha Stewart of her magazine, except that she fakes everything she writes.

            The movie’s hysterical, if you can overlook the “war hero” lying to his nurse and faking being in love to get decent food in the hospital.

          • safari

            Felix is a little Flamboyant isn’t he.

          • Treant

            Just the wee-est bit. And it’s Fay-licks by the way he pronounces it, so…

            Is this the cutest movie or what?

        • Silver Badger

          She has always been my favorite lesbian of all time.

          • Treant

            Was she? I didn’t know; I admire her acting chops.

          • Silver Badger

            According to what I’ve read, yes. Her acting ability transcended her sexuality. I consider her to be one of the greatest performers of all time.

          • Treant

            Looking online, they claim she’s had affairs with half the men in Hollywood (and also was sterile due to a botched abortion in the 1920’s).

          • Robincho

            She lost the ranch on Big Valley. She couldn’t keep her calves together…

          • Treant

            Owwwwwwww.

          • Treant

            On second thought, I should have made a joke about counting head.

        • Robincho

          You know, of course, that her death was ruled a drowning. They found her, face down, in Veronica Lake…

    • halfwaythere

      It’s available “on demand” through my cable company, maybe yours too?

      • Treant

        I’m not sure, I’ll have to look!

        Also available free on Amazon Prime.

    It’s not fair.

      We have worse than nothing. We have the orange turd.

        The only half-decent thing to look at in the White House – Jared – is going to prison.

        He’s been a bad boy.

        • AmeriCanadian

          I’ll believe it when I see it. So far, that entire Drumpf family has been untouchable.

        • Skeptical_Inquirer

          You really should concentrate more on Aidan Turner. More people understand that.

          • another_steve

            Aidan Turner wants me.

            He just doesn’t know it yet.

    That was so unpresidential, where were all the insults and interruptions, where were the arrogant nonsensical brags about how smart he is, where was the pointing out of “haters and losers” and vague threats? #NotMyPresident /s

    • Jeffg166

      It’s understood.

    • another_steve

      If you read between the lines, you can detect the outreach to Vladimir Putin in Obama’s rhetoric. /s

    I miss Obama more every day.

    You really fucked up, America. You really did.

    • Jeffg166

      Trump didn’t win the election he won the electoral college.

      • safari

        The thing that exists to act as a check against Americans acting stupidly

        • safari

          And preserve slavery.

        • Jeffg166

          Nothing is perfect.

      • 2patricius2

        That is the important fact. Drumpf lost by millions in the vote count.

    • MonochromeMouse

      We beyond fucked up, America basically committed reputation suicide. We will likely never fully recover our standing on the world stage, assuming we survive trump at all.

      • Art Jackson

        I think, if we do get it back, it will not be in many of our lifetimes…and the fact is that witrh clown boy Dotard and his merry pack of GOPer thieves in the house destroying us internationally China is taking over our old position in the world…a permanent end to much of the US power. We are diminishing in influence, as most world powers do eventually, but for us it is happening in one single year due to these few stupid grifting monsters….and the ultrawealthy ultrafarright conservative gazillionaires bankrolling them in the final push of their move to control as much as possible. Madman Mercer, who believes people are “healthier” around the periphery of the blast after a nuke gets dropped, for one.

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      Fucked up is when you forgot to pay the cable bill for six months.

      This is beyond fucked up. We have taken anything that was positive in this country’s reputation on the world stage and fucked it seventeen ways from Sunday. We have created a banana republic and I don’t mean the Gap one off store. We have lost credibility and any moral compass. The only thing that Trump has provided is a good reason to have protest art. Other than that, we have nothing. In short, we shit the bed, screwed the pooch, bit the bag, and kissed any reputation we had goodbye. We are no longer good or bad or even meaningful. We are now irrelevant. The world woke up and realized that America’s days are behind it. And after a concern at first realized “okay, we moved on.” There is one sick irony: Trump will be a moldering corpse *long* before we see the depth of his shitty impact. We got his shitty gold plated baggage.

      So until then, sure, I’m all for enjoying the ginger goody good goodness that is Prince Harry. God knows that we’d be better with him in charge.

      • Renfield

        If, say, the shitgibbon is impeached (or executed which would be much better) and Pence runs away and Ryan ends up as Prez and Ryan appoints Biden and then Ryan resigns, we could, maybe, a bit, get our previous standing restored.

    • JCF

      Ahem, +3 million more of us did not.

  • Silver Badger

    Too many clothes. They both need to be naked with full frontal shots.

    • AmeriCanadian

      Great minds!

      I stumbled across this guy early this morning…hubba hubba! “Brandon Ashton”. Hopefully this isn’t too risqué. Happy Sunday.

      • Silver Badger

        On the edge. Sigh. The lesbians don’t like to see dicks. Others are afraid of JMG getting an X rating so they can’t read it at work.

        I work at home and love seeing cock. However, I’m willing to go with the lesbians and workers in the spirit of community.

        • AmeriCanadian

          Should I delete? I don’t want to contribute to an X-rating.

          • Silver Badger

            It’s Sunday and his dick is not showing. I think your safe.

            An honest question was asked and I gave an honest answer. Note that, regardless of my personal likes, I was willing to abide for the community.

  • safari

    I want to be alive when we have the first royal gay couple. But — now that Harry’s getting married — I guess we’ll have to wait for the next generation.

    • AmeriCanadian

      Isn’t there a prayer circle request for Prince George to be gay?

      • Gustav2

        Those wacky Anglican priests. (one is praying for it)

      • Art Jackson

        Not exactly. The idea was that should one of the Royals be gay, the stigma and violence and hatred would have to diminish finally.

    • Gustav2

      Lord Ivar Mountbatten, HM’s cousin is out. And HM’s late uncle, George, the Duke of Kent was bi.

  • Lazycrockett

    Someone is going to a wedding.

    • Jeffg166

      And some big fat orange guy isn’t.

    • Gustav2

      Can’t wait to see M’s hat.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Sigh….

  • Ninja0980

    Can we have him back in office please?

    • Silver Badger

      Not without changing the law. The other question is: Would he comeback to more right wing hate? Would his wife divorce him if he did?

      • Gerry Fisher

        mmm-hmmm! He and his family served. Time for others to take it from here.

        • Art Jackson

          True, but the sheer fervor with which people wish for him to come back, and the incredible number of times we see someone wishing that, just lets us know both how decent a man and good a president he was against far too much ugly obstructionism fromt he GOP and that part of the country who leapt happily into the basket…and how very terribly far this country has fallen in just a few months.

  • boobert

    You know he’ll be at the wedding ! Someone will want to nuke Great Britain.

    • GanymedeRenard

      Wouldn’t it be delicious if Mr. Obama is invited and the Dotard isn’t?

      • JAKvirginia

        Yesss….. so, so, so delicious!

        I don’t think there’s any doubt about that.

    Why is Harry allowed to wear clothing?

    • safari

      So he can tease when he removes it

      Adding to the fact that with Donnie No-Scoops and Eric the Dim around, he probably couldn’t keep any pets alive.

    • And pence has issues keeping pets alive on top of tRump opinion over it.

      TRUMP THINKS THE PENCES ARE ‘YOKELS’ BECAUSE THEY BROUGHT PETS TO WASHINGTON
      http://www.newsweek.com/trump-thinks-pences-are-yokels-because-they-brought-pets-washington-736285

      President Donald Trump thinks lowly of Vice President Mike Pence and his family.

      When the Pences—who had two cats, a rabbit and a snake as family pets—decided to bring some of them to their residence in the Washington D.C.-based Naval Observatory last January, Trump ridiculed the arrangement to his secretary, a longtime adviser told The Atlantic in a story published Tuesday.

      “He was embarrassed by it; he thought it was so low class,” the adviser said. “He thinks the Pences are yokels.”

      Trump, whose net worth is $3.1 billion according to Forbes, apparently had already formed an opinion of Pence before picking him as his running mate as “prudish, stiff, and embarrassingly poor, according to one longtime associate,” The Atlantic said.

      While Pence is far from one of the richest Americans in the country, he doesn’t classify as an uneducated and unsophisticated person from the countryside—the definition of a true yokel.

      Pence served as governor of Indiana from January 2013 to days before he was inaugurated as vice president in January 2017. Prior to that, he served as chair of the House Republican Conference and was a member of the House of Representatives.

      In their most recent tax return, Pence and his wife Karen reported $113,026 in adjusted gross income, almost entirely from his salary as Indiana governor, according to The Wall Street Journal. Pence’s income did not top $200,000 annually in a decade of tax returns.

      The filings also showed that Pence regularly used tax breaks for upper-middle-class families to cover the costs of raising a family and paying for college tuition.

      Trump had reservations about picking Pence and considered New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, but went with the Indiana politician three days after dining with the Pences. Trump is the first president in 150 years who has not brought a pet to the White House, according to the New York Post.

      The Pences’ rabbit called Marlon Bundo became an Instagram star after moving to the Naval Observatory and has accompanied the vice president in some official appearances. The so-called Bunny of the United States is the main character in a children’s book written by Pence’s daughter. The Pence family, after one of their two cats died in June, adopted a kitten named Hazel and a puppy named Harley.

      Pence’s press secretary Alyssa Farah on Tuesday tweeted that The Atlantic’s story was “tired.”

      • Lee Grupsmith-Pedersen

        Embarrassingly poor? That’s rather telling. About Drumpf.

      • Coprolite

        Dump has no empathy or the ability to care for anyone. I imagine he barely cared for his own children as they grew up.

      • JCF

        Pence is a homophobic scumbag…that said, I wouldn’t be so heartless towards someone whose cat died, to say they “have issues keeping pets alive” (unless you have additional info about it—as w/ the Huckabee family!).

        • It was in the story from somewhere probably the orange taint.

    • architect_tim

      i can be a dog sometimes…(can I get a scratch or hug by Prince Ginger?)

    • GanymedeRenard

      That beast (obviously not Harry) is repellent to all animals.

    • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

      I wouldn’t let him near any animal but a honey badger. Honey badger doesn’t give a shit.

  • shellback

    How on earth did this country go from charming, witty, and intelligent, to repulsive, hateful and dumb? The mind wobbles.

  • I love dim sum

    I regret that I voted for Obama twice, he turned out to be a pretty faced liar that was really just a Republican. Obama and Hillary are why I started voting 3rd party.

    • And you wonder why we’re here.

      • I love dim sum

        No, I don’t need to wonder about that, we were already ‘here’, through most of Obama’s presidency, but his pretty face and his niceness lulled everybody to sleep. Including me, I totally fell for his BS.

        • Oscarlating Wildely

          Navel lint sculpture: urban myth or fact?

        • Go the fuck away. If we were in a real place in real time I would strike you with my cane.

  • Nicole Lara Lajeunesse Bøe

    What is really interesting is that Harry, being a royal at a high level, both represents England as a whole (and the government ), but at the same is located outside of official departments/ministries. A way of snubbing Trump and not officially saying anything.

  • fuzzybits

    Ah,it seems a hundred years ago.

  • JWC

    Ah back when the presidenct was relaxed and fun

    • andrew

      We were so spoiled for eight years.

      • JWC

        spoiled and the absolute shock of Transistion

  • Halou

    Imagine that, a president who can both take and make jokes.

  • bcarter3

    I call fake news on this one.

    Everybody knows that when an American President speaks, he invariably mixes vulgarity, insults, lies, self-aggrandizement, incoherence, threats, pettiness, and bullying.

    It’s obvious that the calm, rational, thoughtful person speaking to Prince Harry can’t be an American President.

    (God, how far we’ve fallen in just one year.)

    • Halou

      Russia’s opinion of the US has more than quadrupled though. And from the way the sitting President himself reacts to this fact I guess nothing else actually matters.

    • I love dim sum

      Yes, I’d much rather have a cute, sweet voiced President, that lowkey bombs the Middle East into rubble for petrodollars, and instigates a refugee crisis where tens of thousands of people drown in the Mediterranean to escape drone strikes. That was Obama.

  • andrew

    I like Obama and Harry. Because I think Obama walks on water doesn’t mean that I am biased. O.K. maybe it does.

  • Nychta

    When Barry met Harry – delightful.

    Princess Diana didn’t live long enough to raise her sons to adulthood (they were 12 and 15 when she died), but she must have done something right in the meantime.

  • Henry Auvil

    I WANT MY PRESIDENT BACK!!!

  • SockMikey

    It’s not fair, we got Trumpf! & they got Harry & they got Trudeaux!

  • JCF

    Back on the nicotine gum, Prez O? Whatever works for you.

    Think of all the angst WE are feeling re Drumpf’s destruction of Obama’s policies—then imagine being Obama watching it happen (and that’s AFTER the stress of 8 years as President!).

    I love you.
    I miss you.
    I feel for you.
