Honestly, it was surreal. (Mr Michaels, you can stop laughing now.) The man pretty much spent the first half hour lashing out at the press and declaring how great he was and what a "mess 'president Obama left him. It got so bad that we actually got to watch the president lie and try to correct the lie in real time.

But not racist. Nooooo.
