The ignorance of Barack Obama was on full display in the wake of the tragic mass shooting in Uvalde.
With nearly two dozen dead, most of them children, Obama sent out a disgusting tweet.
Rather than stay focused on the children, he decided to bring up George Floyd, and he was absolutely crushed for it.
What Was He Thinking?
Obama made the mistake of thinking that he spoke for everyone regarding the death of George Floyd.
George Floyd was a lifelong criminal and drug addict.
And while he did not deserve to die that way, let’s face it, he would have met his death sooner rather than later with the lifestyle he was leading.
He had enough drugs in his system on the day of his death to put down an elephant.
The children that died in Uvalde were innocent, and they surely did not deserve the fate that awaited them.
For some reason, Obama thought this was appropriate…
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. His killing stays with us all to this day, especially those who loved him.

Rest assured, George Floyd’s death has not stayed with me at all, be that cold-hearted or not to say, it is a fact.
I am still more upset about the rioting that took place than I am of that man heading to the grave.
Obama’s tweet was met with much criticism…
"It sucks those kids died, but remember George Floyd? He's who I'm still thinking about." — Barack Obama

And here is another…
George Floyd was a violent criminal lowlife hopped up on fentanyl. The fact that you would compare his death to the slaughter of 20 children is just incomprehensible. My God you are a vile man. https://t.co/4kvcvIQa5S

Shockingly, there was even an editorial in the Wall Street Journal that took exception to what Obama sent out.
The WSJ responded, “Leave it to the former president to demonize his political opponents in the wake of an act of madness. But note his default to ‘action, any kind of action.’ Anything apparently will do as long as it offers the self-satisfaction that we are doing something, even if it turns out to be futile or counter-productive.”
It continued, “We are fated to have another debate on gun control because half of American politics will insist on it. By all means have at it. But anyone who thinks gun laws will end mass shootings in America isn’t paying attention to the much larger problem of mental illness and the collapse of cultural guardrails.”
It is good to know that Obama puts the loss of life of those innocent children at the hands of a madman on par with the death of George Floyd. That should make the liberal horde very proud.
