President Barack Obama compared the ever-growing field of Republican presidential candidates to characters fighting for survival in The Hunger Games on Thursday.

According to The Wrap, POTUS told a crowd at the University of Wisconsin at LaCrosse:

“They’re [Republicans] going to be making a whole bunch of stuff up, and when I say a lot of stuff, I mean a lot of stuff.”

Of the crowded GOP field, which will soon officially include Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Obama said:

“You know, we’ve got some healthy competition in the Democratic Party, but I’ve lost count on how many Republicans are running for this job. They’ll have enough for an actual ‘Hunger Games,’” Obama joked.

The president then smeared the “bus full” of Republicans, saying they were akin to your crazy “Uncle Harry” at Thanksgiving who “makes no sense,” adding, “That is an interesting bunch.”
