Right Wing Freak-Out Over White House Tweeting Photo of Obama with Water Gun
The right wing never stops at nothing to manufacture scandal after scandal. The latest freak-out is over the White House releasing a photograph of President Obama and his daughter, Sasha, playing with water guns by pool during her birthday party at Camp David in 2011. I would think the right wing is besides itself now that President Obama’s approval rating has taken a major hit due to the controversies swirling around his administration.
They are saying it’s hypocritical since “an elementary-school student gets suspended for merely mentioning the word gun, the picture instead stands as an image of hypocrisy, as the White House’s Twitter followers pointed out, The Blaze reported.” Really people? I am sorry, but I don’t believe President Obama ever told any school to suspend students mentioning the word “gun,” Red Alert reports. Melissa Quinn outdid herself by ending the article with this statement: “As many across the Twitter-sphere react to the Father’s Day photo, they’re telling the President, “you should be suspended from the White House.””
