*The South Side came out of President Barack Obama today while addressing critics that he says “pop off” with their opinions about U.S. policy regarding ISIS.

The moment happened during a news conference at the G20 Summit in Antalya, Turkey following two days of talks with world leaders. The president was visibly annoyed by repeated questions about whether he had underestimated the power of ISIS, particularly in the wake of Friday’s attacks in Paris.

GOP candidates Ben Carson, Jeb Bush and Donald Trump have been criticizing the Obama administration for either being too soft, or showing ignorance with its current policy.  Carson said Obama’s decision to withdraw from Iraq led to the formation of ISIS, and that he has intel about its link with China that Obama’s administration was unable to find. Trump proclaimed that he would “bomb the s**t” out of ISIS, and Bush suggested that any U.S. assistance to refugees fleeing the Middle East should be primarily focused on Christians, another idea that rankled Obama.

“That’s shameful,” Obama declared. “That’s not American. That’s not who we are.”

Obama said most of his critics are simply “talking as if they’re tough” and offering no real ideas.

“Folks want to pop off and have opinions on what they think they would do, present a specific plan,” he said.

It became, perhaps, the most retweeted part of the speech…at least on Black Twitter:

  1. That people are so impressed with such an asinine comment speaks profoundly about why America is in the straits it is in.

    • It’s a big deal because our President has gone to great lengths to make himself more vanilla for White people in this country (tone down his blackness). “Pop off” is a more urban term so the fact that he used it in a press conference as important as this one is proof that he’s close to the end of his patience with his opponents and detractors who have a lot to say about his policies, but have no real solution to the problem. You’d have to know more about race relations in America to understand the situation in its context.

      Honestly though, he and the rest of the world need to get their heads out of their asses and bomb ISIS to hell.

  2. I stood up…balled up my fist and started walking towards the TV when he said someone wanna to Pop Off… I was ready to go IN with the Pres!!!! YO Whats Good!!! YO What’s Good….

  3. YES, YES THAT’S RIGHT PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA IS FED UP THAT’S RIGHT IT’S TIME TO POP THE FUCK OFF OR SHUT THE FUCK UP! PUT UP OR SHUT UP! WHAT IS YOUR SPECIFIC PLAN DEALING WITH ISIS NOW PRESENT IT!

  4. When MY PRESIDENT GAVE THIS SPEECH HE WAS SO FRUSTRATED WITH THE REMARKS MADE FROM THE BLUNDERING IDIOTS WHO ARE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HE WAS READY TO FIGHT AND SO WAS I. THE PROBLEM IS THE PEOPLE RUNNING THEIR MOUTH NO NOTHING ABOUT FOREIGN POLICY IN THAT YOU HAVE SYRIANS OVER THERE YOU HAVE TURKS OVER THERE AND THE KURDS WHO LIVE OVER THERE AND DONT HAVE MEN ON THE GROUND FIGHTING FOR THEIR OWN LAND AND THEN THERES RUSSIA AND PUTIN WANTS TO CONTROL IT ALL. WHY SHOULD AMERICAN SEND OUR MEN TO FIGHT THIS WAR AND AMERICA WILL GAIN NOTHING. They need to stop talking about my PRESIDENT. CHRIS CHRISTIE, Donald Trump and Ben Carson are two of the BIGGEST IDIOTS IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.
