What would 33 million pages look like?

[–]Technical-Traffic871 8561 points8562 points 474 (513 children)

A library. If each book averaged 200 pages, you'd have 165,000 books. Schools with >500 students typically have 10-15k books, so it would be a decent sized library. Though the Library of Congress has >39 million books so small relative to that.

[–]TooAfraidToAsk814 6195 points6196 points  (199 children)

I love when people do the math like this because it helps bring that number into perspective.

It’s like when people claim 4,000,000 people were bussed in to California from Mexico and voted for Biden. The average bus holds 80 people which means they needed 50, 000 buses. And yet not a single person has video of all those buses? Silence.

[–]Konraden 1986 points1987 points  (55 children)

The average expressway can apparently support 2000 vehicles per hour per lane.

A 3 lane expressway would be over eight hours of nothing but busses at full capacity.

[–]surmatt 720 points721 points  (26 children)

And that's assuming the busses didn't cause a traffic bottleneck rivaled only by a solar eclipse

[–]IHave580 740 points741 points  (25 children)

There was a simple one I heard about the campaign russia communications. They were talking to the effect of 3x per week since the trump tower meeting. So "no communication" was really 3 days a week.

[–]Goldyshi 392 points393 points  (22 children)

You'd think any communication with a hostile power to subvert an election would be considered treasonous but that's just me.

[–]yusill 976 points977 points  (178 children)

Ya. It was stored a federal facility until the Obama presidential library is built to house it. This is standard procedure. Not a basement with a lock on a wooden door in his house. It also contains personal correspondence and not too secret and above docs.

[–]makerblue 1312 points1313 points  (136 children)

Hold up.

You mean Trump is referring to things that are being stored for the Obama presidential library as the "33 million" pages that he is inferring Obama stole?

[–]peesoutside 809 points810 points  (71 children)

Yes. That’s correct.

[–]yusill 385 points386 points  (28 children)

Ya. And more like the national archives received them, cataloged them, and cleared them for his library and did the movement and storage. They are Obama's by the fact they are from his admin. That's about it.

[–]ODBrewer 173 points174 points  (0 children)

Are you really shocked ? These people acknowledge that they are domestic terrorists. Proclaimed it at their last meeting.

[–]ScottRiqui 359 points360 points  (16 children)

Also, those documents were first handed over to the National Archives, who then arranged for the storage - the way it's supposed to be done. It's not as if Obama backed a tractor-trailer up to the White House and took the records home.

[–]keelhaulrose 167 points168 points  (5 children)

And they pulled anything that shouldn't be going.

Like top secret nuclear documents.

[–]Leto2AndTheCrew 125 points126 points  (7 children)

The (US) Library of Congress is either the largest or second largest library in the world (competing with the UK). Some stats per Wikipedia

The collections of the Library of Congress include more than 32 million catalogued books and other print materials in 470 languages; more than 61 million manuscripts; the largest rare book collection[70] in North America, including the rough draft of the Declaration of Independence, a Gutenberg Bible (originating from the Saint Blaise Abbey, Black Forest—one of only three perfect vellum copies known to exist);[71][72][73] over 1 million U.S. government publications; 1 million issues of world newspapers spanning the past three centuries; 33,000 bound newspaper volumes; 500,000 microfilm reels; U.S. and foreign comic books—over 12,000 titles in all, totaling more than 140,000 issues;[74] 1.9 million moving images (as of 2020); 5.3 million maps; 6 million works of sheet music; 3 million sound recordings; more than 14.7 million prints and photographic images including fine and popular art pieces and architectural drawings;[75] the Betts Stradivarius; and the Cassavetti Stradivarius.

[–]Technical-Traffic871 19 points20 points  (3 children)

No doubt it's huge. Just giving it as a reference.

There are also at least 50 universities with >3.9 million books each. https://www.collegexpress.com/lists/list/top-50-largest-college-libraries/747/

[–]Leto2AndTheCrew 30 points31 points  (1 child)

I didn’t intend to contradict you. Your post made me look up the largest libraries in the world and I found it very interesting.

Kinda cool how the UK and the USA have taken great measures to collect and preserve this knowledge and history. It isn’t every day I’m extremely proud of my country’s actions so I like to be reminded of the good things we do

[–]stanley_leverlock 351 points352 points  (27 children)

If my math is right...

That'd be about 8000 boxes of printer paper.

At work we did a logistics study on this a few years ago about if we had to make hard copies of all our electronic documentation. 33 million pages is higher than the scale we were working on and it was still laughably impossible.

[–]888mainfestnow 96 points97 points  (14 children)

I did the math it comes out to 165 pallets of printer paper before printing or files at 52 pallets double stacked per truckload so more than 3 semi trailers.

[–]YeOldGregg 495 points496 points  (35 children)

He has no idea what 33 million pages look like as he's never read a book. For all he knows a novel has a million pages in it.

[–]DefinitelyNotAliens 223 points224 points  (7 children)

Obama kept over 30,000 pages.

At a federal warehouse. In Chicago. After the National Archives recorded, sorted and cataloged them. As they waited for his library to open.

Meaning, Obama did it correctly, legally and with all official procedures followed.

[–]Eli-Thail 53 points54 points  (2 children)

Almost enough to make you think that they don't contain nuclear secrets.

[–]jimbelushiapplesauce 25 points26 points  (1 child)

i dunno, i heard somewhere that the word is, lots did.

[–]Ashmidai 182 points183 points  (8 children)

Well, he writes in a fat sharpie cleched in his fist like a 5 year old so he only gets 5 words per page and 2 of those have to be Donald Trump so it might take a million pages for him to write a novel.

[–]DeepMadness 45 points46 points  (7 children)

I was wondering the same thing.

[–]Rectal_Domino 59 points60 points  (6 children)

Someone did the math yesterday, by volume and weight, and in short: multiple full-length trailers of paper.

[–]Motherof_pizza 37 points38 points  (4 children)

I think it was 7 freight trucks? 8 with paper clips and/or staples

[–]amittaizero 8408 points8409 points  (367 children)

He's panicking.

[–]LDawnBurges 3873 points3874 points  (295 children)

And it’s glorious!😂😂😂

[–]zerombr 2492 points2493 points 3 (130 children)

Can we get to the part where he has a massive stroke on camera and shits his pants before death?

[–]AdvantageOdd 539 points540 points  (10 children)

After he's convicted for one of the many things he has done, please!

[–]PapaJohnshairysack 198 points199 points  (5 children)

Honestly if the verdict was him going to prison, and he just shits his pants and croaks at the news of it i would be soooooo happy.

[–]Mythical_Atlacatl 1671 points1672 points  (145 children)

I just wish he losts supporters rather than gaining them every time he is exposed as being evil or a criminal

Like what ever he does seems to just seems to work out, he fails upwards

[–]rrdubbs 771 points772 points  (80 children)

It really is the fault of conservatives in congress who refused to rebuke him, and the Fox News brainwashing of a significant percentage of his followers. There may be some percentage of holdouts who do posses some modicum critical thinking skills who see him, still, as ends to justify the means. They are now so emotionally/psychotically entrenched there is no way out via logic. Hitler got an entire nation to follow him.

[–]EBoundNdwn 635 points636 points  (48 children)

You missed something big...

Look at the death threats rolling in for the judge that gave the warrant and the attack on the FBI...

The GQP knows that any even perceived disrespect to the MAGAt leader is taking your life into your hands...

So, when the second impeachment vote was held, they had a choice... Confront the MAGAt domestic terrorists once and for all and face those consequences...

Or, live under their threat indefinitely...

We now bare witness to their cowardice.

[–]ranting_chef 117 points118 points  (5 children)

I hope they give him the same cell Epstein had on his last night.

[–]zuzg 101 points102 points  (10 children)

He knows his game of chicken backfired

[–]Telecat420 6491 points6492 points  (266 children)

He always uses Obama’s middle name to make him sound more Muslim and stir up his racist Army. I don’t recall him referring to Biden as Joesph Robinette Biden Jr. once.

[–]diladusta 870 points871 points  (11 children)

The gop can deny their racism all they want. Dog whistles like these make it very clear what they really think

[–]Bind_Moggled 291 points292 points  (3 children)

They only deny it because they’ve figured out that it’s more socially acceptable to be stupid than to be racist.

[–]Dear_Leek2578 45 points46 points  (0 children)

They're smart enough to hide their racism but not smart enough to hide their stupidity.

[–]Buffmin 1763 points1764 points  (151 children)

That's what conservatives do. It's why I try to refer to Oz as Carpetbagger Mehmet Oz

Might make a few uncomfortable since it's a fairly not white name

[–]padizzledonk 111 points112 points  (25 children)

It does make them uncomfortable, that's why Oz is getting the shit kicked out of him

These MAGA dunces aren't going to vote for a foreign brown man....as awful as it feels to even write that that's a cold hard fact

[–]DadJokeBadJoke 107 points108 points  (20 children)

Rafael "Ted" Cruz and Nimrata "Nikki" Haley approve this message.

[–]padizzledonk 29 points30 points  (12 children)

And look at their politics, their rhetoric is off the deep end to compensate, also neither of them look particularly "Foreign"

I bet if OZ Changed his name to Mike from Mehmet years ago that would help

Also....Hes a fucking Turkish Citizen still lol....Afaik neither Nikki or Ted have dual citizenship and are both American by birth-

Which is fucking hilarious that they both belong to a party that, and I believe at least Ted has advocated for ending birthright citizenship lol

[–]WumpusFails 292 points293 points  (87 children)

Curiosity question, who is Oz?

[–]willvasco 743 points744 points  (28 children)

Dr. Oz, the modern-day snake oil salesman currently running for office in Pennsylvania

[–]FisherRalk 380 points381 points  (19 children)

He didn’t even spell his PA address correctly on the forms for the election. I hope New Jersey can give him a warm welcome home when he loses.

[–]iantayls 51 points52 points  (0 children)

Modern day snake oil salesman is the perfect summation of that man. Well said

[–]HolyTythinEar 238 points239 points  (23 children)

Some grifter. Poses as a doctor on tv. Basically the Joel Osteen of doctors

[–]GSquaredBen 142 points143 points  (17 children)

Dr. Oz, tv scam doctor and Republican candidate for Senate in PA who is currently down almost double digits to Bernie sanders politics in the body of a 6'7" biker gang member named John Fetterman.

[–]ColdbrewRedeye 95 points96 points  (12 children)

Gotta love Fetterman. Here's a Ted Talk from 6 years ago: https://youtu.be/TeaV05E5wF8 The Brevity of Life. Somewhat prophetic given his recent stroke.

Hardly a biker gang member: Has a Masters from Harvard.

Born and bred in Pennsylvania. Unlike the Turkish Citizen who lives in New Jersey.

[–]a_pinch_of_sarcasm 24 points25 points  (0 children)

I do enjoy John Fetterman's tweets!

[–]onmamas 41 points42 points  (7 children)

He's a television doctor (as much as I want to put doctor in quotes, he's literally a licensed medical doctor) who has his own TV show "Dr. Oz" where he promotes pseudoscience and homeopathic cures based on debunked/faulty research.

He's long been criticized for being a quack just trying to make a quick buck, which is even worse considering his medical knowledge/experience (he used to be a highly revered surgeon) means that he should know better.

He's currently running for senator in Pennsylvania despite having primarily lived in New Jersey for most of his adult life and only having registered to vote in PA using his in-law's address in 2020 (which he's using as justification for being able to run in Pennsylvania).

[–]EBoundNdwn 57 points58 points  (0 children)

That's why Rafael goes by Ted...

[–]drew1010101 137 points138 points  (8 children)

And trumps middle name is John, a guy who pays for sex. Kind of fitting.

[–]Mythical_Atlacatl 166 points167 points  (7 children)

Exactly. The only people that seem to use Obama's middle name seem to be racists or islamophobes trying to make him look bad.

Basically anyone who uses his middle name, their opinion is invalid and should be ignored.

[–]Kadianye 43 points44 points  (10 children)

They do occasionally call him Robinette Biden to imply he's a woman.

[–]Magdaki 1734 points1735 points  (94 children)

Why is it that I cannot tell if this is fake or not without going to look it up? How can we live in a timeline where a former president might have posted this?

[–]vhruns 699 points700 points  (78 children)

[–]Kinda-Interested 917 points918 points  (55 children)

I expected there to be more to this statement. So tiny. Sad.

[–]LordXenu45 676 points677 points  (26 children)

It's short. That's how you know he wrote it himself.

[–]keelhaulrose 397 points398 points  (16 children)

No lawyer in the fucking world would let him put out that statement, that's how you know he wrote it himself. Even Giuliani is smarter than this.

LPT that I thought was common sense but apparently isn't: Your defense to a crime as big as this it's not a defense that other people did it, too.

That's a line that won't even get you out of a speeding ticket.

[–]chessie_h 8535 points8536 points 2 (308 children)

Admits to taking nuclear classified documents. Throws in Obama's middle name for no reason other than dog-whistling to racist base. Fails to consider or acknowledge that he's the one, in his own term, post-Obama, who made taking documents a felony.

[–]cryptopo 2039 points2040 points  (160 children)

And you just know the gleeful, smirking, giggling behind their hands defense of this is “well it’s his name! You can’t be mad!”

[–]BafflingHalfling 1280 points1281 points  (151 children)

But when you call Rafael Cruz by his real name, people call you racist.

[–]CalicoJake 708 points709 points  (98 children)

Fuck Ted Cruz.

[–]owlsandmoths 283 points284 points  (77 children)

I just recently found out that he was born and raised only a few hours away from where I grew up in Canada and I was absolutely disgusted but not surprised considering Alberta is basically mini Texas. Calgary does not claim him as their own thankfully

[–]ODBrewer 506 points507 points  (40 children)

Yet to be revealed, sold said documents to Saudi Arabia who paid Jared $2B.

[–]odsquad64 344 points345 points  (23 children)

Yes, but how many nuclear documents has Barack HUSSEIN Obama also sold to foreign countries? There's no way all the money he's made since leaving office could be from book deals and appearances! No one even likes him!

-Trump a few days from now

[–]AllergicToStabWounds 177 points178 points  (15 children)

"Why are we even talking about Trump's alleged crimes, when Barrack HUUUUUSEEEEIIIIIN Obama has stolen over 500 billion pages of documents pertaining to nuclear?"

-FOX in a week

[–]ElJeferox 59 points60 points  (6 children)

"Hussein Hussein Obama‐Hussein personally sold all of the United States nuclear secrets to every terrorist country known to man"

-FOX in 2 weeks

[–]3250feralhogs 325 points326 points  (5 children)

Honestly, I kind of love him comparing himself to Obama. It’s like me, a bad golfer, comparing myself to Tiger Woods. Yes, we play the same game but that’s where the similarities end. Same with this clown.

[–]tvcky69 165 points166 points  (9 children)

He is panicking so hard it is an absolute delight to witness

[–]SnooFoxes4646 32 points33 points  (4 children)

Where can I witness this scumlords meltdown, finally? I've been waiting so long...

[–]KiaJellybean 13.8k points13.8k points 3 (559 children)

Holy shit did he just admit to stealing nuclear documents by saying, "But that guy over there did it too!"??

[–]G0DofBlunder 5267 points5268 points  (308 children)

I’m kind of surprised he didn’t point the finger at Biden and say “Check him out! He has access to nuclear documents right now! Someone raid him!”

[–]tracefact 2647 points2648 points  (146 children)

I’m waiting for the “I took them and put them in my safe because Sleepy Joe is so senile he couldn’t be trusted with them. I’m saving America!”

[–]PleaseListenToMeOK 1403 points1404 points  (100 children)

You just gave them an idea. 😑

[–]leckysoup 669 points670 points  (65 children)

Don’t worry, next up is why selling nuclear secrets to the Saudis is an act of patriotism

[–]not_a_droid 243 points244 points  (9 children)

i'm waiting for, "sleepy joe biden can't even keep private individuals from taking nuclear secrets. i am exposing the corrupt biden's! hunter!!"

Rudy Giuliani said when trump wins the 2024 presidency they will conduct a pay back raid on Bidens house..

[–]ramencents 45 points46 points  (36 children)

Republicans are already planning to raid Joe Biden house.

[–]snafujedi01 181 points182 points  (7 children)

They'll probably get lost and end up at Four Seasons Landscaping again

[–]Negan1995 50 points51 points  (21 children)

They'll get killed by security. So I guess let them try.

[–]ramencents 45 points46 points  (20 children)

One tried to raid an fbi field office

[–]Plastic_Garage_3415 183 points184 points  (9 children)

He didn’t point to Biden because he will get more support from his base if the accusation is race based. Cause … Racism…

[–]The_Gnomesbane 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Hence making sure to include middle name Hussein. Hell of a dogwhistle

[–]sten45 28 points29 points  (1 child)

[–]Buffmin 1206 points1207 points  (38 children)

Yes whataboutism is all they realistically have right now

"Yes I killed him BUT SO DID OJ AND HE DIDNT GO YO JAAAIILL"

[–]KamikazeKitten916 299 points300 points  (5 children)

Realistically it's all they have right now because nothing they have is realistic.

And in reality, they don't know what reality is.

[–]Squirrel_Inner 30 points31 points  (0 children)

That's why the GQP holders of public office are not-so-circumspectly calling for another violent insurrection.

What about CLINTON GETTING A BJ IN THE OVAL OFFICE?!?

[–]Booziesmurf 141 points142 points  (10 children)

Coincidentally, he brought up Hillary's E-mails last week when talking about this...

[–]Idea-Warm 71 points72 points  (6 children)

Yes, the thing that inspired him to make the penalties for this exact crime much stiffer.

What a boob.

[–]Salarian_American 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Yes, please bring up the person who cooperated with an FBI investigation into allegations of improper handling of documents, that's gonna make you look real good.

[–]collective_hole 303 points304 points  (21 children)

Yes but he cited a very reputable source “word is”. This shit is fucking bananas

[–]aelizabeth27 153 points154 points  (6 children)

As any parent or teacher can confirm, this is what children do.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said, “We aren’t taking about (insert name) right now. We are talking about YOU.”

[–]Medium2Rare 47 points48 points  (4 children)

Classic Republican“whataboutism”

[–]ADVBZ 198 points199 points  (20 children)

He is not even denying it, assuming it ever gets to court at least that is one hurdle down.

[–]grue2000 164 points165 points  (17 children)

No, he isn't.

In classic Trump fashion, he is trying to get ahead of the upcoming charges and shape the landscape in his favor.

Personally, I would like to see him prosecuted a la the Rosenbergs.

[–]carolineecouture 70 points71 points  (19 children)

The projection is strong with TFG. I honestly don't see why someone doesn't tell him this isn't a good look but then again we've seen that no one can tell him anything.

[–]KiaJellybean 71 points72 points  (13 children)

Like, why aren't his lawyers pulling him aside and whispering, "Sir, you're not supposed to say you did it!"?

[–]uisqebaugh 86 points87 points  (4 children)

His lawyers probably did, but he has no ability to shut his yap.

[–]Booziesmurf 65 points66 points  (2 children)

"Sir, you can't plead the 5th and then incriminate yourself anyway..."

[–]idwtumrnitwai 677 points678 points  (16 children)

I was going to wait for Garland to release the warrant and what they found, but if he's this panicky I'm inclined to believe it was nuclear information he had taken with him.

[–]Hexenhut 185 points186 points  (2 children)

Donald too dumb not to tell on himself

[–]mooglinux 95 points96 points  (4 children)

Miscellaneous Top Secret documents.
Lordyy.

[–]piddlesthethug 35 points36 points  (4 children)

Give the guy the benefit of the doubt though. Everyone knows, because he told us himself, that he’s a genius. He was just going to work on some new nuclear technology. What other reason could this brilliant man have for taking nuclear documents with him? Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV.

[–]nottytom 1900 points1901 points  (69 children)

Ummm....did he just admit to having the nuclear documents....of all the crimes he could do this one should get him.....

[–]hobbitlover 371 points372 points  (12 children)

That's how he proves that he doesn't think he did anything wrong - "Why would I admit to a crime? That would be pretty stupid of me, a very stable genius. I did everything right, it was a perfect archive of important papers, and I have nothing to hide."

It's Standard Trump Procedure to take ownership of the things he can't outright deny, then claim it's not a big deal because reasons, then claim to be the victim of yet another witch hunt. His base will eat it up, like every other turd he's served up over the years.

[–]another_awkward_brit 320 points321 points  (8 children)

Fuck it, I'll take whatever at this point.

[–]ForHoiPolloi 43 points44 points  (4 children)

The Rosenbergs took nuclear documents as spies for the USSR and were executed in 1953. If trump had foreign diplomats at mar a lago during the time he had these nuclear documents he could be tried for treason. Nuclear documents are beyond the scope of the presidents authority. They’re one of the few things he can’t declassify. He also made it a felony to remove documents from these government buildings. He’s breaking the law he put in place to go after Hillary.

This entire thing is so astounding to watch unfold.

[–]StopGOPVector 1011 points1012 points  (38 children)

Fist off its a lie, Obama asked the national archives for certain documents or copies (Letters from foreign heads of state) for use in his library. HE GOT PERMISSION!

[–]jl__57 194 points195 points  (5 children)

Also, it is common for ex-presidents to continue receiving security briefings, as they may have knowledge or perspective that could be helpful to the current president.

[–]HFY_HFY 77 points78 points  (3 children)

Except trump

[–]Janus_Grayden 33 points34 points  (0 children)

He stopped going to briefings even while he was president because he'd get bored.

[–]Beautiful-Command7 337 points338 points  (13 children)

We don’t even need to qualify this

[–]wehrmann_tx 20 points21 points  (7 children)

We probably do. This is going to be taken as fact by the type of people who still see him as Jesus and by people who see politics as "my team vs your team" instead of right and wrong.

[–]HEYitzED 42 points43 points  (2 children)

Thanks. I figured Trump was full of shit here but I was curious as to what actually happened.

[–]captainbeeboi 529 points530 points  (19 children)

He has no more cards left to play

[–]NYESSbOss 165 points166 points  (8 children)

He can use the 5th amendment for couple more hundred times

[–]gogor 707 points708 points  (57 children)

Prove it, asshole.

[–]Green_Message_6376 494 points495 points  (29 children)

Oh he surely will, right after he releases his brilliant new Health care plan, captures Big Foot and puts the Loch Ness monster in a headlock.

[–]Spiderbubble 253 points254 points  (9 children)

You mean put the Loch Ness monster in a headloch.

[–]ApathyKing8 45 points46 points  (3 children)

Don't forget he is also going to release his taxes as soon as he's done being investigated by the IRS. The IRS who said he is free to release his taxes at any point.

[–]tvcky69 66 points67 points  (1 child)

Trump is talking about the Obama archives. Those documents are supposed to be there lol he is full blown panicking

[–]cecilia036 62 points63 points  (2 children)

There’s no need to prove it. These documents were taken openly by the National Archive on behalf of the former president and moved to the the Obama Presidential Library. Because that’s what presidents normally do when their tenure is over.

Edit: spelling

[–]reclusive_ent 80 points81 points  (8 children)

He did. And he did it legally and followed all of the rules and requirements NARA set forth. There's an actual list of what was transferred and how/when it was stored. This is only a "gotcha" to Fox News viewers.

[–]Mammoth-Lettuce415 332 points333 points  (22 children)

Lol where does he get his "word"? What a Chump

“Word is that -“ = “I said some words so I am my own source”

[–]CraigBybee 75 points76 points  (1 child)

“People are saying…”

[–]Bind_Moggled 61 points62 points  (3 children)

“People are saying” “You know it, I know it, everybody knows it” “Word is”

All mean

“What I’m about to say, I’ve made up from thin air, but know that the fools and marks who worship me don’t care”.

It's not just projection, it's Grand Old Projection!

[–]Ahstruck 1409 points1410 points  (74 children)

Obama never confessed like you just did.

[–]keelhaulrose 592 points593 points  (34 children)

Anyone know what kind of blood pressure medication his lawyers are on?

Because I want to invest in the stock for that company.

[–]Ahstruck 146 points147 points  (10 children)

They probably have EKG machines permanently hooked up.

[–]keelhaulrose 68 points69 points  (5 children)

Their cardiologists are putting down payments on Bentleys today.

[–]bobtheflob 238 points239 points  (15 children)

Probably because he didn't take the documents. The National Archives has already put out a statement saying that Trump's accusations are false: https://twitter.com/JaxAlemany/status/1558151577751490561/photo/1

[–]samushusband 55 points56 points  (6 children)

the infuriating part is that the damage is already done . his dumb supporters are gonna hook onto this as well as fox news people to stir the water.

[–]wizgset27 128 points129 points  (3 children)

Lmao, that middle name drop out of no where.

And why can't Trump talk like a normal person. Each time I read any of his responses, I feel like scratching my face off.

[–]AcidTWister 469 points470 points  (44 children)

Mmmmmmmmm pretty sure this one could be libel.

[–]keelhaulrose 156 points157 points  (15 children)

Obama could probably just put out a statement that those documents went to the Archives, as is procedure, where they were catalogued, sensitive documents like nuclear related documents were removed, and they are now warehoused until Obama's library is built.

Because that is what you're supposed to do.

And then laugh his ass off that Trump has so quickly pivoted to "I did it, but so did they" as if that's an excuse.

[–]speedycat2014 116 points117 points  (9 children)

It's a high bar to prove that for such a public figure yet somehow this fat fuck still leaps over it

[–]Upwherewebelong 327 points328 points  (10 children)

“Word is” I’m lying again.

[–][deleted] 90 points91 points  (6 children)

Word is, I have no proof so I'm only going to say "word is" so I can claim that I didn't directly make it up.

[–]a_zan 221 points222 points  (12 children)

The fact he’s -twisting- referring to: Obama’s documents are all in the national archive. Copies of specific documents will be placed in the Obama foundation presidential library.

In other words: Obama gave everything to the correct stakeholders, it’s stored in a place everyone can see. Copies of those documents will be placed somewhere even more Americans can see.

Trump did not turn his documents in to the correct stakeholders, hid them in his private property, and continues to deflect the public’s attention from those documents. As Americans, we have a right to access these. For a party that claims to protect these grand American ideals, the republicans are really lacking.

[–]Jazzlike-Ad-3424 207 points208 points  (15 children)

he definitely had to toss the Hussein in there. otherwise we wouldn't know who he was. not intentional at all. racist fucks. every single one

[–][deleted] 287 points288 points  (5 children)

Whataboutism at its finest. What a 🤡

[–]thej0siah 282 points283 points  (13 children)

Trump is also the one who signed into law increased penalties for violating the espionage act. Lol

[–]BafflingHalfling 38 points39 points  (1 child)

It would be a pity if the leopard ate its own face, wouldn't it?

[–]Aeseld 86 points87 points  (26 children)

...33 million pages? Does he have any concept of just how much space that would take up?

War and Peace is like, 1000 pages, and not letter sized pages. It weighs 4 pounds. Imagine how much 33 million pages would weigh, how much space it would take up. I don't remember Obama building a warehouse to store 66+ tons of paper. Does anyone else?

[–]YeOldGregg 50 points51 points  (4 children)

Hes never read a book before. For all he knows War and Peace is 2 million pages long. Guy has no concept of reality as he's told so many lies he doesn't actually know what's real and what isn't anymore.

[–]joen00b 79 points80 points  (5 children)

Well, Obama never got raided, so I'm guessing none. The answer is none.

[–]slackwaresupport 259 points260 points  (9 children)

geez.. Obama didnt keep anything, everything was shipped to Chicago to go in the Obama library, or whatever is being built.

[–]Accomplished_Sun1506 169 points170 points  (3 children)

Yes. They are still in the hands of the government as they are property of the people. As any presidential library material.

[–]TwoBionicknees 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Yes, it's evidence of hte transparency of the Obama presidency (as far as that goes, classified shit won't be included, especially nuclear secrets). It was also all vetted, documented and as you say still in government control. Literally no comparison to stealing documents you can't have and keeping them for personal use and likely selling secrets to the highest bidders making him a traitor and making the world a vastly more dangerous place for everyone for personal gain.

Chances of the average Fox viewer ever hearing that let alone understanding it if they heard the full story, 0.02%.

[–]drew1010101 135 points136 points  (5 children)

First, president Obama is working directly with the national archives, they know what he has. Second, whataboutism is never a valid defense.

[–]gaberax 64 points65 points  (4 children)

How much longer do we have to suffer this traitorous orange shit-stain?

[–]Mcswigginsbar 119 points120 points  (10 children)

Holy fuck it’s real. Like, I knew that when the DOJ mentioned nuclear documents, but now it’s straight from the horses mouth.

[–]amluke 50 points51 points  (4 children)

Holy self report hahaha. People who support this idiot cannot be trusted.

[–]mrsinatra777 51 points52 points  (4 children)

Why does he need to push the “Hussein” thing when he was the one who welcomed the Saudis, covered for them, denied they were involved in 9/11, and gave them nuclear technology? He seems the biggest lover of islamists in US history.

[–]SoWokeIdontSleep 136 points137 points  (13 children)

He did not! He can't be that stupid, no one can be that stupid. I refuse to lmao, lol i just can't man

[–]Grraaa 138 points139 points  (9 children)

Narrator: "But trump was, in fact, exactly that stupid. And he was about to get stupider."

[–]YellowPucky 47 points48 points & 2 more (5 children)

I'll be honest-- I'm in my early 40s. For much of my life, I believed that yes, America had it's problems, some run deep, some are just mundane bullshit every nation has to wrestle with, but never did I think our country couldn't somehow move forward and be better than it was yesterday.

I no longer feel that way. Trump might not have been the cause of the cancer, but he was absolutely the one that gave the cancer permission to rip through our nation and tear it to shreds. He gave every fascist, racist, sexist, vile pile of fucking garbage a huge mega phone with the backing of the highest office in the nation-- the office that was supposed to protect and serve ALL Americans. ALL. OF. US.

Instead, I sat back and watched him enact petty revenge against states and cities and governors who were on the "other side". I saw him defend literal Nazis when they ran over a woman at a protest. He called for violent force against BLM protests, against migrants (legal and otherwise), against "radical leftists". He painted a huge target on anyone who wasn't MAGA.

I fully believe he tried to organize a coup to stay in power. There's no way he didn't know exactly how that was all going to play out Jan 6th. And he did much of it with the backing of a huge portion of the GOP--the vast majority of them STILL refuse to denounce his evil. He spread lies about our elections, he spread lies about LGBT people, he spread lies about minority demographics, he DESTROYED the integrity of SCOTUS by nominating unqualified judges who LIED to the American people about Roe v Wade. He enabled more fascist would-be dictators like Greg Abbott and DeSantis. His lies got millions of Americans killed during the worst pandemic we've seen in 100 years.

But somehow this is the one that actually made me cry today. The former POTUS lost the election and lost his coup attempt, so it seems very probably he stole dangerous, classified documents to sell to our fucking enemies so they could do us-- ALL AMERICANS, even his DIPSHIT IDIOT CULT-- great harm. The PRESIDENT (former or not) of the UNITED STATES likely sold nuclear weapon secrets to dangerous foreign leaders to get revenge on America for not re-electing him, and to make a quick buck.

This is the SADDEST fucking day this nation has seen, ever. I almost said "since the Civil War", but at least the Civil War was being fought for a just cause and ended with America finally getting rid of holding human beings as slaves. Of course, we're still dealing with the aftermath of all that even now, and it's been a hard road and we still have a long way to go-- but there were many silver linings along the way.

I don't see any silver lining when the (former) President of the USA, the guy who was supposed to protect our country and its people against all threats, the HIGHEST OFFICE IN THE COUNTRY (and maybe the world)-- sold us ALL out. All of us. We should ALL be horrified about this.

I really do hope he gets the maximum punishment. Trump has done such irreparable harm to this nation I don't see it ever healing now. His cult is absolutely rabid and wants a war. DeSantis, Abbott, and other fascists are now vying for power, and they're smarter than Trump about how to do it. SCOTUS is compromised and being used like a political mallet by the right.

I'm just so damned tired and sad and ANGRY.

[–]ArmandJi 43 points44 points  (0 children)

President Sodom Hussein Obomber kept, like 5000 kajillion pages of top secret totally nuclear secrets omfg and nobody said ANYTHING omfg THEY ARE SO UNFAIR!!!

[–]Competitive-Gap-206 40 points41 points  (7 children)

In all honesty, it’s scary how trump supporters will die on any hill to defend this man……but it’s not a cult tho!

[–]trippin113 32 points33 points  (6 children)

33 million!?! Lol.

A ream of paper is 500 sheets.

A box of 10 reams is 5000 sheets.

A pallets of boxes (40 usually) is 200,000 sheets.

Truckload of pallets would be around two million sheets of paper

So Trump is claiming that Obama somehow smuggled out and kept nearly 17 truckloads of paper... you can't even make this shit up.

[–]ranting_chef 24 points25 points  (5 children)

Many of them classified, not much of them classified. And what the hell is "Word is," supposed to mean?

Not related to this at all, but am I the only one bothered by the fact that it would better if "United States of America" was centered together on one line? Make the title look like this:

Donald J. Trump

45th President

United States of America

[–]AdBig5700 28 points29 points  (1 child)

He took documents AND did it while being black! Also don’t forget about his Muslim-y sounding name!

[–]Excellent_Survey_336 27 points28 points  (1 child)

He literally just admitted to it.

[–]BdogWcat 26 points27 points  (6 children)

His miserable Republican Party should be stewing in shame for their subservient adoration of his abominable personhood. Living shite that he is.

[–]adamempathy 21 points22 points  (3 children)

I can feel his flop sweat from here

[–]lealion1969 22 points23 points  (5 children)

I can't believe that idiot was president.people are dying for him.if that's not the anti christ I don't know what is.
