Obama held his last ever press conference from the White House last Friday and decided that he was going to make a fool of himself for the occasion by speaking about a subject he apparently knows nothing about -- geography. Watch:

 

Leader of the Free World:

"The Russians can't change us, or significantly weaken us. They are a smaller country, they are a weaker country, their economy doesn't produce anything that anyone wants to buy except oil and gas and arms."

Everything else Obama says here is obviously true since John McCain has already said something much the same. We know that if a Democrat and a Republican agree on something that means it is irrefutable fact.

But what about the claim that Russia is a smaller country than the US? Something really bothered me about this one so I checked wit he the experts on big landmasses, the Canadians:

As the Canadian national anthem explains:

When I look around me, I can't believe what I see
It seems as if this country has lost its will to live
The economy is lousy, we barely have an army
But we can still stand proudly 'cause Canada's really big
We're the second largest country on this planet earth
And if Russia keeps on shrinking then soon we'll be first

Russia is in fact the largest country in the world (despite the shrinkage)! Then comes Canada, and China. The USA isn't even in the top 3:

What the hell Obama?? I had faith in you! You're the Leader of the Free World but you flunked 4th grade geography!
