We have been holding on to this story for two days and have been reluctant to post it but decided in the interest of fairness, we did have an obligation to post.
As Donald Trump weathers a storm of controversy over lewd comments he made to TV celebrity reporter Billy Bush in 2005 in a private conversation, new video has emerged from the 2008 presidential campaign that shows now-President Obama appearing to behave just as salaciously.
Aboard a campaign flight, then-Senator Obama is talking on a cellphone as he arises from his seat; nearby a female reporter catches a glance of something that makes her uncomfortable [a bulge in his pants], sending her skirmishing to the back of the plane.
Obama, rather than downplaying the awkward display, instead plays it up, positioning himself so the gathered reporters have little choice but to take in his chauvinistic performance.
Meanwhile, a female voice can be heard ordering everyone to sit down, ostensibly so they can get a better look. The gathered female reporters laugh at the scene, further encouraging Obama’s bawdy behavior.
The video, originally shot by CNN cameras, emerged Tuesday on Twitter, where it spread quickly.
UPDATE: The websites Mediaite and Snopes have responded to this post, arguing Grabien’s reporting is wrong and the video does not conclusively reveal a bulge in Barack’s pants. Did our eyes deceive us? What do you think?
To most women, this is very rude and disrespectful though the press pool seems to think it’s funny. Some of us might call it deplorable or red neckish.
The hypocrisy of the left is very noticeable in this situation. Amy Schumer, Chuck Schumer’s niece and a left-wing, feminist icon, says here, “I can catch a d**k whenever I want.”

Maybe the NY Times should publicize an actual video of Bill Clinton groping a Stewardess on a plane.
