[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Of course social media is not the place where one would expect deep thought out political policy to be discussed. After all, on Twitter, you only have 140 characters to get your point across. However, Barack Obama has, since his candidacy in 2008, used social media quite prolifically.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Team Obama has taken to social media to demand that the Muslim terrorists in Africa, Boko Haram, “Bring Back Our Girls” and he has even used social media to celebrate the SCOTUS decision to redefine marriage by Tweeting and Facebooking about it using hashtags, statements by himself, and even a picture of the White House lit up in rainbow colors.
In fact, to this day, the cover photo of the White House’s Facebook account is still the “Rainbow White House.”
So, on Thursday, after four Marines were killed by Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in Kuwait, I was curious as to what was being tweeted from the official White House Twitter account as well as from Barack Obama’s official account.
Remember, this is the same man who sent official representatives of the White House to the funerals of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, and Freddie Gray, but sent no one to the funeral of Kathryn Steinle, who was recently killed by an illegal alien who had been deported five times. Even worse, Obama has not said one word about Steinle’s murder.
So, what was Barack Hussein Obama tweeting and Facebooking in the hours following the murder of four Marines by a Muslim.
Don’t worry. He did find the time to tweet and post on Facebook about his visit to a federal prison, making him the first sitting president to do so. After all, he has to get the masses behind his push to give felons voting rights. He also has to convince them that he’s a cool guy by touting the personal letters he wrote to the 46 criminals to whom he gave pardons.
Two minutes after the shooting of the Marines by Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, Obama tweeted this from his official account.

There was nothing tweeted from his other official account, @POTUS. He did, however, find a ton of time on July 14 to tweet about ‘criminal justice reform,’ even going so far as to also push free college tuition for all.
We could eliminate tuition at every public college and university in America with the $80 billion we spend each year on incarcerations. — President Obama (@POTUS) July 14, 2015

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]So, that was on the July 14. Let’s go back to Thursday, July 16. What was tweeted from the official White House account?
Of course they had to announce Joe Biden’s wife new Instagram account.

Then he had to continue to try to convince Americans why giving nuclear bomb capability to the Islamic State of Iran is a good idea.
And we can’t forget his visit to a federal prison.

Then there’s this controversial tweet that was sent out not long after the Muslim killed four Marines. Barack Obama issued a special statement to Muslims to celebrate the ending of Ramadan.
The killings happened at approximately 10:45 am Central Time. That would be 11:45 am Eastern Time for Obama and the White House. Hours went by before a statement of any kind was released on social media, the mechanism that Obama turns to early and often to push his agenda of climate change, marriage equality, amnesty for illegals, among other things.
Although Obama did give a statement earlier that afternoon, it wasn’t until approximately 9:30 pm Eastern time, nearly 11 hours after the slaughter of these Marines, that Obama finally used social media to honor those fallen Marines, releasing the video of him speaking about the attack by Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez.
He did not speak in front of an official podium from a position of power with anger and authority in his voice. Instead, he was sitting in a chair, slightly slumped over, stuttering and nearly emotionless.

He was more visibly angry following the deaths of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Freddie Gray.
But, at this point, should we be surprised?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
