The “mock Michele Bachmann for her religious beliefs” train ride seems to be gaining passengers among those on the left. And now even the president of the United States has jumped aboard, making Bachmann the butt of his jokes during Saturday’s White House Correspondents Dinner. Bachmann, the former four-term Republican congresswoman from Minnesota, criticized Obama earlier this month for his support of a framework agreement with Iran that she says will lead to war and bring judgment on America. Obama took her to task in a half-joking, mocking tone. “Michele Bachmann actually predicted I would bring about the biblical end of days,” Obama told the correspondents, who erupted in roaring laughter.

“Now that’s a legacy. That’s big. I mean Lincoln, Washington, they didn’t do that.” Bachmann had made her comments about Obama in a recent interview with Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries on her show, “Understanding the End Times.” Bachmann was unfazed by Obama’s snarky comeback. “The Bible is filled with exciting information about living life today and in the future, both in this life and in the life to come,” Bachmann told WND. “Any message that brings people closer to God’s wonderful plans for our lives is a good thing. “God’s word is true and brings freedom and wholeness to all who read it and believe in Him.” When the progressive media heard Obama’s mocking of Bachmann, they dutifully took his cue and heaped more invective on the former congresswoman.
