    Obama: "NYC traffic is actually pretty smooth for me..."

    Obama makes light of New York traffic chaos he causes by saying 'it's actually pretty smooth for me'

    * The president joked today during a New York speech that he doesn't seem to have the traffic problems the city's residents complain about

    * 'I don't know what the problem is,' he told attendees of the Clinton Global Initiative's annual meeting. 'I haven't noticed'

    President Barack Obama joked today during a New York speech that he doesn't seem to have the traffic problems the city's residents are always complaining about.

    'It's actually pretty smooth for me during the week,' Obama said, after playfully arguing that everyone in New York 'hypes' the traffic.

    'I don't know what the problem is,' he told attendees of the Clinton Global Initiative's annual meeting. 'I haven't noticed.'

    Obama started off the bit by saying he told CGI namesake and former U.S. president Bill Clinton backstage that if his daughter Chelsea went into labor while he was speaking 'she has my motorcade and will be able to navigate traffic.'

    The president was seemingly unaware of how intensely New York drivers despise his visits and the traffic jams they cause around the city.

    Every time the president travels to New York police have to close streets along his motorcade's route, sometimes for long stretches of time, turning the city's busiest roadways into parking lots.

    The already busy streets were even more jam-packed this week as the United Nations convened for a climate change summit and a General Assembly meeting.

    Per usual, New Yorkers took out their outrage over the gridlock caused by Obama's motorcade on twitter.

    'GO HOME OBAMA NO ONE WANTS THIS TRAFFIC,' twitter user Rebecca Plaine said.

    'Thank you Obama for causing all this bulls*** traffic in NYC,' a user named Ramirez tweeted.

    'Pres and Lady Obama we love you guys but please leave NY ASAP! This traffic is unbearable!' user Rachel Johnson begged.

    First Lady Michelle Obama accompanied the president to New York this afternoon, and the first couple will remain there through Thursday.

    After learning that Obama had mocked their travel problems, residents of New York and the surrounding area were even more irate.

    'I know multiple folks who missed flights today because of him. File Under: No laughing matter,' twitter user @lisaedlisa said.

    I'm sure the president is fully aware of NYC traffic and the inconvenience a president's motorcade causes most places he goes, and made the joke for that reason. He's a smart guy and also lived in NYC in his youth.

    The press would eat a Republican alive for saying such a tone deaf comment.
    Just a puppy kicking, children starving, grandma shoving, kitten throwing, evil, vile, nasty, disgusting, racist, sexist, bigot.....or so I've been told. :)

    Obama is always glib and sarcastic. He really doesn't care about anyone but himself. It's just a power game for him. I'll be so glad when his term expires.

    You need some help here?


    The president's motorcade always causes traffic problems. It doesn't matter who the president is.

    People in Christie's administration PURPOSEFULLY closed a bridge to create traffic issues to retaliate against a political rival.


    Subtle differences, I know.

    No kidding. It's an absolute joke that they would get their panties in a bunch over something that is such a non story as this.

    Hillary will implode before the election and therefore will not be the next president.

    Yup, if she wins. There's no way she would be as bad as Obama. No way.

    I think Obama's dream job was stand up comedian. Being President was "Plan B".
