Obama tells young Asian leaders in Laos that Americans are lazy and ignorant

In his never-ending quest to demean the United States while puffing up the egos of foreigners, President Barack Obama repeatedly said that Americans tend to be lazy during a town hall meeting Wednesday with young leaders in Laos.

And because of this trait, Americans have little interest in learning about “other people.”

“We are such a big country we haven’t always had to know about other parts of the world,” Obama told the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative.

“If you are in the United States, sometimes you can feel lazy and think, ‘You know we are so big we don’t have to really know anything about other people,” Obama continued.

“That’s part of what I’m trying to change,” Obama added.

Just out of curiosity, did he mean “lazy” like putting off a trip to flood-ravaged south Louisiana because he was too busy hobnobbing with the rich and famous on Martha’s Vineyard?

The president then remembered to flatter his posts.

“This is actually the region that’s going to grow faster than any place in the world,” he told the young crowd.

“If we are not here interacting and learning from you, and understanding the culture of the region, then we will be left behind,” Obama said. “We will miss an opportunity, and I don’t want that to happen. Okay?”

His tweet afterwards indicated he was proud of his performance — but not everyone was, beginning with Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway.
