Tweet of the Day: POTUS blocks 13-year-old critic on Twitter

How classless can you get? It’s one thing for Barack Obama to fear Fox News Channel. For a long time the conservative news network was the only media outlet that criticized the president when criticism was due. It is almost understandable, if not forgivable, that he would try to limit the network’s exposure. But a 13-year-old?

Here is a tweet from CJ Pearson with hard evidence that his Twitter account had been blocked by the @POTUS account on the same social media site:

If that’s not bad enough, the White House made itself appear duplicitous, in addition to petty and vindictive, by lying about the block. Here is a tweet by Assistant White House Press Secretary Frank Benenati:

Happily, the skirmish didn’t end there. The enterprising CJ took to Facebook, where he recorded his revulsion to Obama’s childish and spiteful behavior, stating:

If you think the American people are gonna fall for your little tricks, you’re downright crazy. This administration has lied to the American people time and time again. They lied about Bengazi. They lied about the IRS. They lied about every issue of importance to the American people.

My response to the White House calling me a liar.

In a way, it makes sense that Obama would seek to silence CJ Pearson. The preteen represents everything Obama despises in America. He is articulate, able to think on his feet, and sees the president for the shallow and radical politician he is.
