I read an article that he wants to invite Obama to perform at the festival.
What a great idea! Having the POTUS do some gimmicky performance at a corporate cashgrab festival! I wouldn't be surprised if Obama did it to be honest.
Completely below the dignity of the Presidency.
Yeah, how dare the President appear at something that isn't a state dinner or global conference? Trying to connect with the populace on a common, friendly scale - what a JACKASS! This is worse than when he fills out those brackets on ESPN - he's too busy picking Kentucky to win it all to fix the economy!

aaaand this is why Obama shouldn't be at the festival. Not because it's below the dignity of the presidency or whatever, but because it will turn what should be a great time into a teeth grinding political debate.

What happens if my tee shot lands on a bird's back and he carries it out of bounds but then is attacked by a larger bird who grabs the ball and drops it in the hole? Is that still a hole in one? 'Cause that's how I'm gonna play it.
He's like you made an Ã¼ber troll by taking the worst parts of me (the utter disregard for other people's opinions), Phi (cluttering up threads with memes and adding nothing to a discussion) and Jess (an apparent belief that everyone else is the problem and/or arrogance without self awareness).
