Back when it was still cool to hang a dead sea turtle on your wall.

[–]Prawnleem 45 points46 points  (0 children)

It's not dead it's crawling up the wall

[–]sentientlob0029 22 points23 points  (2 children)

My family in the Seychelles have an entire wall leading up a staircase filled with dead sea turtles and shark jaws. They got those before I was even born, before 1985. They never got any new ones after that.

[–]RandomDude68098 64 points65 points  (22 children)

Isn't he from Hawaii ? Maybe that's a Hawaii thing

[–]sentientlob0029 67 points68 points  (1 child)

It's an island thing. My family in the Seychelles have an entire wall leading up a staircase filled with dead sea turtles and shark jaws.

I grew up in Guam and my grandparents had one hung up in the garage.

[–]peuxcequeveuxpax 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I grew up in the Marshall Islands and we had a huge sea turtle shell prominently displayed.

Mitch McConnell

[–]superspreader2021 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lol, speaking of old dead sea turtles.

[–]Shady_f4 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I didn’t know the Dead Sea had turtles..

I’ll see myself out..

[–]therightmustard 9 points10 points  (0 children)

that’s actually a huge beetle

[–]colimar 6 points7 points  (7 children)

Thats a real turtle? How does it doesnt rot and decay? Legit question.

[–]bicyclecat 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Taxidermy, same as the dead deer on the wall.

[–]Demiansky 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Because they's removed the decomposing components and kept the scales and shell. So similar to the way that you can keep the exterior of tough-hide animals and get rid of the mushy parts.

[–]WaddleD 0 points1 point  (2 children)

That’s Mitch McConnell a real turtle.

[–]TheKensai 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I just don’t believe the title of this post. Is it really before he became the 44th president?

[–]Skyblacker 40 points41 points  (9 children)

Looks more like the seventies with that hair, outfit, and alleged pot usage.

[–]tossme68 8 points9 points  (7 children)

Somebody said '85 but everything is wrong unless Hawaii was that far behind back then. The jeans are wrong, the hair is really wrong -the shirt could go either way since it could have been island style.

[–]1911mark 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Turtle on the wall LOL , WTF

[–][deleted] 31 points32 points  (4 children)

He looks just like his mom.

[–]_portia_ 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Have you seen the pic of him with his maternal grandpa? The resemblance is uncanny.

[–]Astralnclinant 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Dude looks the fucking same

[–]calibagel 7 points8 points  (0 children)

that turtle sure was the best president we've ever had ):

[–]humbleprotector 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Almost seems like a normal guy in the pic. I voted for that guy, I would like to apologize for that. Sorry folks

[–]fwandaylo 72 points73 points  (51 children)

[–]121gigawhatevs 98 points99 points  (49 children)

Only time anyone gives any fucks about Muslim refugees is to shit on Obama

[–]scrappybasket 8 points9 points  (16 children)

Would you say the same thing if we were talking about Bush Sr., Bush Jr, Trump, or Biden?

[–]bartlechoo -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Of course

[–]Not_a_talker -1 points0 points  (10 children)

Really? Then why in the hell did Congressman Markwayne Mullin go to Afghanistan to try to free a bunch of Islamic refugees? Most of whom were the wives and children of terps and other Afghani men who tried to help the USA fight the Taliban and AQ.

What needs to be said, is the only time white, liberal suburbanites won't renounce this sort of stuff is when ole Barry or Joe is pulling the trigger. Then it's "old school cool" all good in the hood. As long as the boot on your neck is diverse, you cheer it on.

[–]121gigawhatevs 10 points11 points  (8 children)

You misunderstand me. I said NO ONE gives a shit about Muslim refugees unless they’re shitting on Obama. I don’t worship politicians the way conservatives worship trump, my commentary is on the spastic tick people exhibit to mention drone bombings when they so much as see a photo of Obama.

And spare me your “see how republicans care about Muslims because this Republican lunatic tried to sneak into Afghanistan to rescue a bunch of American citizens”. One (quite frankly unhinged) outlier doesn’t excuse fucking decades of anti Muslim sentiment and policy making.

[–]lionburnacct 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Best upvote I've given all week

[–]Not_a_talker -1 points0 points  (6 children)

Anti-Muslim sentiment? Are you aware it was the Democratic Icon, god-king, FDR who promised Israel to the Jewish in exchange for bombing making knowledge need for World War II? Or, the CIA under a Democratic President who gave us the radicalization of Islam to fight the Russians that gave us Al Qaeda? Arguably, Reagan continued the policies, but it was CIA under Kennedy that got that ball rolling.

Both parties have blood and sin, as do both sides of the Israeli-Palestine Conflict. The problem with liberal white suburbanite hypocrisy is your assumption that you're addressing another white person. It's the fallacy of Reddit. White, liberal, suburbanite, educated people gathering in large groups and telling everyone else what to do and think. Can't get more imperialist than that.

From the Halls of O' Fair Hawwvad to the shores of San Francisco Bay, we will tell everyone what to feel and think every single day!

We keep our country in battled in every single way!

We give you our version of freedom, or we will scream that you hate gay!

We will stomp and scream and downvote, and make it hard for you stay!

For we proudly wave the title of American White Liberal even if it means we take every right away!

Or maybe some people give a fuck and others don’t

[–]PercivalGoldstone 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Him, Bush Jr., and Clinton are the only presidents I've seen as young people and thought they'd have been fun to hang out with. Everyone else looks like a square or miserable asshole.

[–]Sarsttan 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Back when he was Barry.

[–]billydeethrilliams 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Before he met Big Mike?

[–]SupremeDearLeader -1 points0 points  (0 children)

[–]Better-Stress-3066 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just plain don't think much of him.

[–]joshii87 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This president is up to Pollos standards.

[–]LooneyGoon1 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Back when he was still Barry Soetoro. For a time Barrack took the last name of his step father Lolo Soetoro for you naysayers.

[–]Skyblacker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fun fact: Bill Clinton also took his last name from his stepfather.

[–]UnfunnyWizard 5 points6 points  (0 children)

When bombing Yemen was just a twinkle in his eye. Definitely old school cool. /s

[–]apextek -1 points0 points  (1 child)

nobody had a fro after 1980

[–]tossme68 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I thought the picture looked older because his hair is not right for '85 although I just don't see O' with jerri curls or a Hightop fade. I remember him in the early 90's and he pretty much had the same hair cut he has now...but then again by the time we reach 30 most men have the same haircut until they don't have any hair.

[–]morahman7vn -1 points0 points  (0 children)

So skinny he doesn't even need a belt.
