Picking up where John Kerry left off on Sunday (it’s almost as if this is a coordinated effort), the country’s ringmaster for the past seven-plus years is talking smack about the circus:

Speaking at a journalism prize ceremony in honor of Robin Toner, a longtime political reporter for The New York Times who died in 2008, Mr. Obama said the 2016 campaign had become “entirely untethered to reason and facts and analysis,” a coarse spectacle that he said was tarnishing the “American brand” around the world.

“I was going to call it a carnival atmosphere,” the president said, “but that implies fun.”

“The No. 1 question I’m getting as I travel around the world or talk to world leaders right now is, ‘What is happening in America about our politics?’ ” Mr. Obama continued. “They care about America, the most powerful nation on earth, functioning effectively and its government being able to make sound decisions.”

You’d need an IMAX screen in order to see this projection in its entirety:

The president suggested that the news media had not done enough to question the promises made by politicians
[…]
“When people put their faith into someone who can’t possibly deliver his or her own promises,” Mr. Obama said, “that only breeds more cynicism.”

No argument from me…

Cynicism has been put out to stud during this administration and they’re blaming GOP candidates for the reason it’s been breeding with tribble-like speed?
