During the 2016 political season, President Obama has made political appearances and speeches appearing increasingly frustrated with the orange slab of hate that the Republican party has lauded as it’s nominee.

Like most of us, the president went through the usual stages of grief when it came to dealing with the idea of Trump as an actual presidential nominee, breezing through shock, dwelling in disbelief, and now settling neatly into anger.

On Tuesday, the president addressed recent remarks from Donald Trump which echoed the popular Republican talking-point about whether or not Obama’s “refusal” to say the term “radical Islamic terrorism” was some magic pill which could end terrorist attacks in the U.S.

On this ridiculous point, the president had clearly had it and launched into an angry speech about why he doesn’t use the term and why it wouldn’t make a damn bit of difference to a homophobic man who wished to murder LGBT Americans if he did.
