• Obama Tweets About Islam, Still Silent on Charleston Massacre

    Nine people were murdered late Wednesday by a gunman at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Among the dead are six females and three males, including a five-year-old child. The church’s pastor, the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, who’s also a South Carolina state senator, was among the deceased.

    Naturally the story is receiving wall-to-wall coverage as the state’s governor, Nikki Haley, has asked for prayers for the victims and their families. Presidential candidates stumping in South Carolina have cancelled campaign events. And a manhunt is now underway for the man law enforcement is identifying as Dylann Roof, 21, of Lexington, South Carolina.

    With all that said, you’d think that the president of the United States would at least send a tweet giving his condolences.

    If you thought that, you’d be dead wrong.

    As I write this post, Mr. Obama has yet to show his respect to those slaughtered in South Carolina. But he did have time to give the Muslims of the world a shoutout from his Twitter page:

    Even Hillary the Pander Queen Clinton sent some love to Charleston.

    Stay classy, Barry.
