President Barack Obama took a jab at the rapidly expanding field of GOP presidential candidates, comparing the 14 declared Republican hopefuls to “The Hunger Games.”
“They’re going to be making a whole bunch of stuff up, and when I say a lot of stuff, I mean a lot of stuff,” the President told a crowd at the University of Wisconsin at LaCrosse Thursday.
“You know, we’ve got some healthy competition in the Democratic Party, but I’ve lost count on how many Republicans are running for this job. They’ll have enough for an actual ‘Hunger Games,'” Obama joked in a video posted by Politico.
Obama then compared the “bus full” of candidates to your crazy “Uncle Harry” at Thanksgiving who says stuff “that makes no sense,” adding, “That is an interesting bunch.”
The GOP field is currently 10 candidates short of the 24 tributes required for a typical Hunger Games.
May the odds be in their favor.
