President Obama interrupts Trump's show

President Barack Obama can't seem to get away from being connected to Donald Trump lately.

First came Trump's comments regarding the birther issue, which were followed by President Obama poking fun at Trump during the White House Correspondents Dinner.

Then on Sunday night, the president's speech announcing the death of Osama Bin Laden interrupted the airing of Trump's reality show, "The Celebrity Apprentice," on the East Coast.

Entertainment Weekly reports that NBC, which airs the program, joined fellow networks ABC and CBS in cutting away from their regularly scheduled programming for the speech.

According to the publication, NBC then returned to its local affiliates' news programs on the East Coast, while on the West Coast the speech only delayed the episode of "Celebrity Apprentice."

One of NBC's late night hosts, Jimmy Fallon, tweeted, "Got Bin Laden AND interrupted Celebrity Apprentice? Win for Obama all around."

    What a crock.
    This fantastic show was interrupted so Obama could play up and delay everything; and eventually announce (or fail to admit) that he authorized the assassination, the MURDER of OBL; guaranteeing that we never could interrogate him, and get more information about which US officials during the illicit and illegal reign of King George the Unelected knew of or assisted in the 9-11-01 false flag attack.

    As I read these comments, I m saddened. I give credit to both presidents for their rolls in getting this guy and I blame both of them for the economic situations we have had and are still having. We have to learn, as our Congress has to learn, that we must respect each other and not make comments to inflame the other side. Instead we out here in the real world need to learn to find a way to get along and reach compromises,as Congress must learn to do, that will allow us to become again the great nation we have been in the past. If we don't figure out a way to do that history will show us as just another nation that rose and fell. No one side is totally right on the way forward. All great achievements have been done by people putting their heads together and finding an answer together.

    not all blacks or minorities blindly and minlessly support obama or the democratic party . why do liberals always use the race card when an issue has nothing to do with it. you are the ones who are racist when you are insulting the presidents intelligence by saying someone disagrees with him just because he's black. you are also racist by insulting blacks who are not liberal or democrat. you are essentially saying that blacks don't have the intelligence to think for themselves or have their own opinions. read a history book or to and realizw which parties african americans have benefitted from and which one has consistently oppressed them.

    Man! Fallom was right the Pres got a two for one deal, bin Laden eliminated and "The Donald" cut off. SWEEEEET! That should teach Trump that justice of some sort always comes around. Since he was so worried about the Pres's birth certificate why doesn't he try to get bin Laden's death certificate?

    Trump won't run for prez – its all for publicity. Stop comparing Obama to Palin – she ain't running. Stop comparing Obama to Bush – he ain't running. I only hear criticisms about others and yet I NEVER hear praise for what Obama has accomplished in these past 2 years ... are you better off now since his election? Are we stronger as a nation? Are we united as citizens? More secure? Financially stable? Employed? Do you trust our government? Do you believe our press? Do you respect your neighbor? Obama has absolutely broken this country and utterly failed as a leader.

    dayumm. eveyone's getting all defensive about political parties. it's okay to disagree but why the hell r u jumping down eachothers throats and disrespecting one another. everyone has a different opinion. honestly, obama did not kill bin laden, the military did. and trump being president may not be such a bad thing because we do need a business man to get us out of this recession. i don't have anything against obama but it was a little immature to interrupt trumps show, especially since obama didn't speak for another 45 minutes. but who wouldn't want to hear such great news? you have to look at the situation from both perspectives.

    For those sorry individuals who think this is more about the troops than the Commander-in-Chief, I am not sure if my logic will make sense (logic is a word that may not exist in your dictionary).... but Obama had many meetings about this event since February, made an executive decision not to bomb the compound (so he could have a body as proof), then authorized an incredibly gutsy move.. imagine the chutzpah to have foreign helicopters cross Pakistani borders, fly for 1 hour unnoticed, land discreetly next to a military camp, kill the terrorists, whisk away with the body.... all under the Pakistani government's nose without informing them! This is a gutsy move in every means - politically, strategically, and shows incredible level of commanding... only a sore loser would deny him his dues and attribute it to the troops. The troops are not the ones making the decisions - they deserve ultimate credit, as does the President.

    Happy that Hairdo had a really bad weekend. First, he refused to even crack a smile during the assorted zings justifiably directed at him during the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Then, on Sunday night, President Obama trumps him by interrupting his hideous "Celebrity Apprentice" show. Does anybody really believe that Obama's selection of that particular time slot was just a coincidence?

    Now I have always considered myself a Republican, and conservative .... so that will help you understand the context of this comment. I have never been so delighted as I was while watching the leader of the Free World PWN Donald Trump during the White House dinner. It was hilarious. It was a fitting and glorious frosting on the cake to find out he also interrupted his gawdy and culturally embarrassing show to demonstrate how he did in fact authorize the kiling of Osama Bin Laden. Oh man. I almost went Democrat right there. Not even kidding.

    After varying degrees of success with the franchise, My faith that "Fast 5" could deliver on the hype was waning somewhat. However I am pleased to say the series has redeemed itself. Fast 5 pulls out all the stops this time around. It delivers on action, cars, quality acting and a decent storyline. It explores the character personalities showing more humor, fear, vulnerability and determination this time around which gives the movie strength and depth that was missing from previous Fast n Furious movies.

    The President and a few others watched the raid in real-time video. I will bet you money that the third to the last thing OBL heard was the voice of the President of the United States, the second to last thing he heard was the shot to his chest and the last thing he heard was the click to his brain.

    Honestly, I'm not into the political stuff. It appears to me that Obama is being a hypocrit. He is taking credit for something that he was opposed to............The use of torture and violent interrogation techniques in Guatanomo. That is how we got some our information to bring Bin Laden down! I have no problem with the techniques used in Guatanomo personally. I think if we punished criminals like that here there would be a lot less crime.

    I'm not a "Tea Bagger" or any of the other insulting things that you Obama zealots like to call people. I'm not anti-Obama or pro-Palin. I'm just a hard-working American taxpayer who thinks the entire debacle could have been handled better. The stations broke into regular programming with a mystique about them: "The President is going to make an important announcement". Then the political analysts proceeded to yak it up amongst themselves for almost an hour - in the process revealing the big important secret announcement that the President was going to make. WHY?

    Wasn't an announcement of that magnitude up to the President to announce? Why did the reporters think it was okay to jump the gun and spill the beans - and why did the networks think it was an acceptable practice? They could have cut into regular broadcasting at 11:30, allowed Obama to make the announcement, and had their political analysis afterward...but that makes sense, so it doesn't get done that way.

    Well, if, in fact Bin Laden was assassinated, fine to interrupt the Donald. 911 was an inside job by the evil Cheney and puppet Bush. Yeah, planes flew into the towers but they were not the commercial airlines, they were remote controlled airplanes with NO windows. The so-called plane in Pennsylvania was not a plane but some kind of missle... same goes for the Pentagon being hit with a missle. That whole event was real and staged by certain evil elements within our own country and government.

    The George Stubby Shrub Bush and Dick Haliburton Hannibal Cheney do not get credit for bagging Bin Laden... they get credit for lying to the American people, for starting two illegal wars, for slaughtering more than 600,000 Iraqi civilians, for being war criminals and for driving our country and economy into the gutter all for the said of feeding the flaccid fascists trying to take away our freedom and power.

    I think that Mr. Obama has proven more than once, the hate and negative comments that are said about him will never make him lose his cool.... each time something is put in front of him to block his success, just like a game of chess his moves are clear and constant. Bush made it clear in a press conferance that he did not know where Bin laden was, and it was not at the top of his list, however when President Obama said that getting this man is at the top of his list, he accomplished it. I for one think that this man will accomplish everything that he has said he would. Love him or hate him, he is the leader of this country Bush allowed our jobs to go overseas, Bush started the up a mess does not happen overnight, Mr. Obama can not wave a magic wand and suddenly make all of our concerns and problems go away, we all need to grow up and take some responsiblity for our own problems and figure out what we can do for ourselves that will make our lives better....

Republicans will win 2012 like it or not and the president is claiming victory when it took him so long to do anything because he was loosing popularity and Trump is kicking his ass in the poles, he should be worried and finally doing something for the USA since I believe his birth certificate is a fake anyway. GO TRUMP!

    I skim through some of these posts, and have no other option but to laugh at the.. ignorance of a lot of the users in here. For those bashing Obama, what grounds do you have?.. Listening to radical talk show hosts?.. Educate yourselves instead of falling into all the hypocrisy that's on television.. If you would, Obama has been the best president since Clinton, yet because he's the first black President, you scound him more. Bush who did what good while he was in term gets more props than a President CLEARLY strriving for better.. How his health care plan was a lot of suggestions to be voted in or out, but they realized if he passed it, insurance companies would have to compete with his plans prices.. which means insurance would be about the people, how its supposed to be, not for pure profit.. Many more I could list, please do our country a favor, a country who you could be proud of in the past, a country that was a role model for other Countries, please educate yourselves so we can once again be proud of the United States of America!

    Go Obama!

    • Ignorant? Learn to use the word, please.

      Why is it that when I say I don't like Obama that I am automatically a racist?

      IF Bin Laden is dead, the intell came in over SEVERAL YEARS. Almost 10 years is what I am hearing on ALL news shows. I am highly surprised that Obama had the courage to sign Bin Laden's death warrant. IF Bin Laden is dead, I can say I am impressed with the way Obama handled this.

      It seems that people also forget that before the election, fuel costs dropped almost 50%. As soon as Obama took office, up it went again. Now Obama tells me to trade in my truck for a small car. Maybe I need my truck? I am handicapped so that I need a higher profile vehicle to get in and out of. And who is anybody to tell me what type of vehicle I need to drive?

      Republicans don't know how to run a government? Then why are California and other states going to Texas to find out how the Republican governor there keeps luring businesses to Texas? Taxes aren't everything. The parent company that operates Carl's Jr. is threatening to move its HQ out of California. Why? High Taxation.

      Some people in America are getting lazy. We have good basic rights and laws, but some people now want something from our government. And modern Democrats are using "we can give you...." tactics that are getting them voted in, and then, when stuff starts to go down hill, the people wake up and balance the system better. It happened mid way through Clinton's term, and it happened again in Obama's term. The people spoke, and Washington is deaf. ON BOTH SIDES!!

      NO president is perfect. Obama is not. Neither Bush was. Clinton SURE as heck wasn't. Carter, Ford, Nixon, etc.? Nope.

      Blame Bush for the current economic tide? Perhaps. Bush pushed billions for military spending. Spending BOTH SIDES approved. THEN, Democrats balked, claiming Bush acted on his own, and that Bush lied to the American people about the war. The same Democrats that voted "HELL YES" to going after Bin Laden, turned tail and denied ever voting that way, and blamed Bush for making mistakes. Even though he was using the SAME intell sources that Obama is using. Intell TAKES TIME.

      AND......Please remember there are 3 sides to every story: Side A, Side B, and the truth.

      Support Obama? Good for you, but can you do it without mentioning his apparent race? The race card is old and needs to be dealt out.

      I will NOT vote for Obama. I don't agree with his views. I don't agree with his policies. I don't hate the man. In fact, I would love to eat lunch with him one day. He seems like a down to earth guy. I just think his ideas are off base. I own land in a rual area. I have to work for my food.

      And, yes....Republicans are lacking qualified candidates that have the charisma to beat Obama. Sad, but true.

      Sorry, but that is not the way it works. As it has already started, insurance companies are getting together to set higher prices, making bigger profits, and getting away with it. Save money by changing companies? Sure, at first. Then they will up your rates at the drop of a hat just because you went to the doctor. They are telling you what you want to hear, and you are buying into it. Big business bad for America? Its the American dream to be successful. Go to work, earn your money, then BAM! "Big business is making too much money and should be taxed MORE!!" You tax more, business has to make cuts. You loose your job. Now you want the government to support you because big business is cheating. Government thinks it has to raise taxes to support you now. Business lays off more. But, HEY!! Unemployment is down!!!

      "Then why are California and other states going to Texas to find out how the Republican governor there keeps luring businesses to Texas?" Well, since you asked, the businesses are moving to texas because they import supplies from mexico. Caterpillar is a good example of this, they are in the process of moving their engine division to texas because the engine blocks are made in mexico. they used to ship them to illinois and south carolina, but no more.

    • Ignorant? Learn to use the word, please.

      "Well, since you asked, "

      I wasn't asking, I was making a point. And you made a valid point as well. Cat has had a plant in Texas (Houston) for a long time. Rising taxation is forcing companies to tighten belts and consolidate. Or move to a state where taxes are lower or the company gets tax breaks. Hollywood, for example. More and more movies and TV shows are filming out of CA, being lured to areas, Texas, Penn, etc that are offering tax breaks. And those locals are reaping the profits (even tho some try their best to tax those profiteers). In short, my point is taxes and raising taxes will not solve your financial woes. The government (whoever is in charge) needs to learn fiscal restraint and operate the government within its means, just like a local city or school district has to do. Agreed, there are some outstanding situations, (the war on terror), but the government should have an emergency fund to assist in such situations. "We the people" are taxed WAY more that we should be. The "BIG business is taxed WAY more than it should be. Rich need to pay more taxes? They do! Ever read the tax brackets for higher income taxpayers? 10% of $1.2 mil is MUCH more than 10% of $22k. And, if anyone is interested, I'm paying 18% at just under $50k. Demos think I am upper income. (sheesh)

    The people that voted for Obama were completely against these wars period. Bush took the heat and stayed in their for this to happen. From Gitmo to homeland security, CIA, FBI and our military. Bush has put in some great communications for this event. Bush was hated for years and kept to his plan. If he didn't, this day wouldn't have happen. Obama deserves 25 percent and the rest goes to Bush and his administration. All the people that were involved in the decision making were from the Bush administration. I respect Bush For the Iraq war because he didn't just leave the innocent Iraqis hanging and the Obama administration can't get us out either. This credit goes to Bush and half the people they have commented on this have been completely against this operation as well as Obama during election time. Thank George W. Bush for this event to happen.

    Gas in Maryland at $4.09....nothing new with gas prices fluctuating over the last 40 years!! It reached $4.00 in the summer of 2008 and in the 1970's there were times we went to the gas pumps on days depending on the last number on our license plate... none as 'odd & even days'. Our recession started in December 2007.....but we all felt it starting in September 2008! It will take a long time to 'get on our feet', have companies hire again and have more people employed. I believe when the Great Depression happened in 1929 it took 10 or more years to come out of it. Also, according to reports, Obama considered a simpler option by dropping a bomb on Osama's compound but was afraid of too many other casualties and the fear that they would not be sure if Osama was truly dead. Seems like he made the right decision to go in with force. And thank you to a brave military team who went into that compound and successfully did the job.

    It did takes years to lay the ground work for catching this devil and Obama got lucky that Bin laden got comfortable enough to stay in one place.

    effectiveness, he said, came from President Obama's decision to send a Special Forces team to kill bin Laden–something he said, citing news reports, that none of the president's military advisers had thought of doing.

    "Our military wanted to go in there and just scorch the earth...but President Obama single-handedly understood what was at stake here. He alone understood the need to get DNA to prove the was President Obama single-handedly and alone who came up with the strategy that brought about the effective assassination of Osama bin Laden," he said, adding, "thank God for President Obama." -Rush Limbaugh (CNN)

    Bin Laden was probably dead already. How stupid is the american public to think the dna tests can be done so quickly. Also, why would they dispose of the body-religious issue or not-? That body needed to be proof that he is dead. Anyone can photo shop a pic of him with a hole in his face.

      1. When it's a matter of national security, DNA testing will be done before anything else. Finding out who's the baby daddy will have to wait.

      2. People flock to the graves of their martyrs so yes, a deposit at sea of the body was called for.

      For someone who likes to insult people for being stupid, you are rather obtuse. Maybe you should reconsider your points.
      "The economy is barely limping along."

      The President does not contol the economy. It's a myth. Congress needs to enact legislation to penalize big business so they stop outsourcing, and bring jobs back.

      "Unemployment remains above 9%."
      See above.

      "Gasoline above $4.00 likely to move to $5.00."
      Obama is not OPEC, it's a world market.

      "Prices for all goods, services increasing."
      since the beginning of time.

      "Stagflation setting in (Look it up dimblubs)."
      This above statement says more about you than any other point you tried to make. If you were all'd be out solving these problems, instead of getting all chest-puffy on a message board.

      "Catching killing Osama could have just as likely happened on Obamas watch as Bushs watch or neithers watch. It couldve well been the next president."
      But it didn't. So talk in hypotheticals all you want, but the truth is: Bush failed, and acted like he won.

      "You dems and Obamitons are living in lah lah land but are about to receive serious wake-up call. Bye Bye Obama"
      I correct myself...this is your most telling comment. Finish what you think is an intellectual post with second-grade name calling, (and unoriginal, parroted talking points name calling at that. You are part of the problem...not the solution.

      Yes, Lisa, the economy "sux" due to the previous administrations' deregulatiions and other shenanigans within the financial industry. It was already deep into "sux" when Obama was elected. Since then, the bailed out banks and auto manufacturers have mostly paid back the TARP funds, unemployment has eased, and real estate prices are at least a little bit closer to affordable for some of us. Gas prices are another story, though, but are you really one of the vast sea of clueless out there who think the oil companies have anything whatsoever to do with setting the price for a barrel of oil? That's all Wall St.

After all that birther blow-hard talking by Trump over the last month, I loved that he got his just dues at the dinner on Saturday. Then instead of having all the teabaggers and right wing zealots crying about the jokes that were delivered on Saturday – the news today is about the killing of Osama. Brilliant – he literally could not have planned the whole thing better. Got in his deserved shots in on Saturday then, historic ground breaking news on Sunday. Kudos to America!!! The world is a better place today without Osama. I would have shipped his body to space however, with the next shuttle mission – then launched him right into the sun.

Of course it was easy enough to search the internet today and find out that Hope was sent packing (boo!). Ironic as it was that Obama interrupted Trump's show, especially since recent events between the two, I'm sure it was simply an unfortunate set of coincidences. yes, they interrupted the show 45 BEFORE the speech, but NBC was waiting for Obama's live appearance would could have been at any second so they took no chances in being ready.

      CAR & Lynn,

      The troops are absolutely responsible for the attack. However, who do you think gave the command to do it? He is the Commander and Chief of the US Military. As a former military personnel, you don't do anything without his approval or the personnel he has entrusted to set forth his mission. He always campaigned to get UBL and he did what he said he would do. If the mission would have been a failure, you two would be the first to blame him for the failure. So if you don't like who we, the people elected, I would suggest find the closest border and cross it. I have supported every president, whether I agreed with everything they did or not, because the people spoke and elected him. If he's not your choice then just deal with it or move out of this country until 2012.

      You want to blame someone for our mess? Try the huge corporations that your Republicans love so much who ship US jobs overseas. Or the wildly unregulated banking industry who was giving out mortgages like candy under Bush, Inc.

      Of course Obama doesn't deserve all (even most) of the credit for this raid. Just like he doesn't deserve most of the credit for sinking our country.

      The thing Obama really deserves credit for in this, and it's no small thing for a politician in DC, is for having the balls to pull the trigger on the decision, and then stand back and let the special forces team do what they're trained to do without interfering or leaving them hamstrung by rigid rules of engagement (like what happened with Desert One in Iran). Both Clinton and W. Bush had the opportunities to get OBL with him sitting in the crosshairs, yet neither of them got the job done.

      @non American

      Your name says it all by the way. Your comparison of the Americans celebrating the death of OBL to the celebrations we saw overseas after 9/11 is like comparing apples and oranges. They were celebrating the murder of thousands of innocent people. We are celebrating the death of the murderer, see the difference? Probably not, so let me explain it to you this way.

      Let's say a child is murdered. You're saying that the murderer celebrating the death of the child is the same as the parents of the dead child celebrating once the murderer is caught and sentenced to death? I think not. You might have had a point had we went in and just blew the whole city up, but considering we took extra effort to prevent the killing of innocent people as much as we could, I'd say there is a HUGE difference in what we're celebrating now, and what we saw after 9/11.
