‘Laughable’: Obama lectures Kenya on corruption — guess who he calls a model of reform?

If nothing else, the presidential trip to Kenya proves one thing: Barack Obama lives in his own sense of reality — where rose colored glasses are a prerequisite.

In addition to ignoring warnings from Kenyan politicians and religious leaders about challenging the African country on gay rights, Obama also lectured his hosts on government corruption.

And he used Chicago as a positive example!

All of which prompted one social media user to ask, “Chicago is cleaned up? Is this a comedy routine???”

Here’s a sampling of responses to the story from Twitter, summed up in a word: “Laughable.”
