No one can exploit a situation causing racial animus and division more than former President Barack Obama, who exploited the death of 19 children and two teachers on social media to memorialize the overdose death of George Floyd, even though there is no connection to the two separate incidents.
Dude, learn to read the room, for goodness’ sake.
Wednesday did mark the two-year anniversary where George Floyd died from a fentanyl overdose, according to the coroner’s report, and was blamed on a police officer (sorry, that’s what really happened). Yet instead of posting about that day, that changed the world, by itself, the president, who made everything about race while in the White House, linked it to the recent school shooting at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.
Obama cheapened the lives of 19 murdered children and 2 adult teachers with political bullschtein and now watch as leftists on news sets drinking coffee from mugs with corporate logos on them praise his exploitation of the school shooting deaths to commemorate George Floyd’s death.
Obama took to Twitter to post an almost unbelievable message.
“As we grieve the children of Uvalde today, we should take time to recognize that two years have passed since the murder of George Floyd under the knee of a police officer,” the former president tweeted. “His killing stays with us all to this day, especially those who loved him.”
He followed up with an even worse tweet that should have been by itself and not lumped in with the story of the death of 19 kids.
“In the aftermath of his murder, a new generation of activists rose up to channel their anguish into organized action, launching a movement to raise awareness of systemic racism and the need for criminal justice and police reform.”

Obama then tweeted about the “My Brother’s Keeper Alliance” and its “Reimagining Policing Pledge.”
Inspired by these young leaders, @MBK_Alliance launched a Reimagining Policing Pledge for mayors and cities ready to take action. If you’re wondering how you can help make things a little better today, here are some ways to get involved: https://t.co/1E1MfT1sza

Why the former president included a photo of Trayvon Martin who was shot and killed not by police but by the guy Martin was assaulting as some kind of victim of gun violence is anyone’s guess. The only thing I can think of is Obama wanted to create more anger and resentment, something he is very good at, which might end in violence.
Had the 44th president made the tweets about Floyd on their own, no one would begrudge him. He didn’t have to over-the-top politicize the Uvalde shooting by mixing the message with the Floyd anniversary. And Twitter wasn’t happy.
Seth Dillon, CEO of The Babylon Bee, responded to Obama’s incredibly insensitive tweet.
“”It sucks those kids died, but remember George Floyd? He’s who I’m still thinking about.” — Barack Obama”

The Hodge Twins thanked Obama for being an inspiration for them becoming conservative Republicans.
“From the bottom of our hearts! You are the #1 reason we are Republicans & Conservatives today. Thank you you set us free brother.”
I love those guys! Check them out on Rumble and elsewhere because they’re funny and conservative.

Christina Pushaw, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis‘ press secretary responded to Obama in the way many of us felt.
“This is truly sick. 19 innocent children and 2 hero teachers were killed… and to the Divider-in-Chief, the real victim of Uvalde is George Floyd?”

Jason Jones pointed out that Obama was celebrating criminals.
“Talk about tone deaf. Stop celebrating criminals you clown.”

Most former presidents go on about their lives and don’t publicly try to trigger people, but not Obama. He pushed race-baiting politics all 8 years in the White House and he’s been doing it ever since.
