I was pretty sick of the royals already, but when they wouldn't exert themselves to the slightest degree to prevent Brexit, I realized that they were permanent parasites who would never lift a finger to exert themselves, even when the health of their own country was in the balance.

(Obama sucking up to the royals is just business as usual for the empty suit. Obligatory disclaimer that the thoroughly mediocre Obama was still a lot better than the monster Trump.)
