SINCE WE’RE BACK TO THE MEDIA BELIEVING THAT CLIP ART CAN KILL, and presidents should maintain a sense of official decorum, here’s a reminder of something that never made a blip on their radar, right around this time last year:

RAPPER KENDRICK LAMAR TO PERFORM AT WHITE HOUSE FOR SEMI-RETIRED PRESIDENT ON JULY FOURTH.

Obama met with Lamar, apparently one of his favorite “artists,” before his final State of the Union address. As Victor Davis Hanson noted at the time, the cover to Lamar’s 2015 album To Pimp a Butterfly features a dead judge and his murderers posing in front of the White House.
