Out of Touch: As Baltimore Burns, Here is What Michelle and Barack Obama are Doing


[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]To say the situation in Baltimore has been chaos would be an understatement. Barbarism is on full display after thugs, thieves, and savages took advantage of the space that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake gave them to destroy. Police have been attacked by roving gangs, after a pact to kill cops was established by gangs throughout the city. This has resulted in at least 15 injuries, six serious ones, to officers. Baltimore city officials reported Tuesday morning that there have been almost 200 arrests, 144 vehicle fires, and 15 structural fires. Two of those structural fires were a senior center and a community center that was being built by a Baptist church.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Things are so out of control in Baltimore that a curfew was implemented today, though announced yesterday. There are 500 members of the National Guard presently deployed in the city with hundreds more expected to arrive. Given the fact that the Obama’s have taken to Twitter for hashtag diplomacy on many occasions, even asking the Muslim terrorist group Boko Haram to #BringBackOurGirls, in reference to young girls kidnapped by the terrorists in Africa, one would think that the Obamas would address the situation on Twitter. If one thought that, however, one would be wrong.

One could say that Barack Obama was addressing the Baltimore Riots in some kind of loose way. He took a moment last night to use the riots as a recruiting tool for community organizers, though he didn’t mention the city.

Michelle Obama, on the other hand, didn’t post a picture of herself holding a sign that said #DontBurnOurCity or anything like that. Instead, she posted a picture of herself debuting her brand new, beautiful china.

Can you say out of touch?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
