No, it wasn’t your imagination. As Twitchy reported last night, the White House-Hollywood industrial complex jumped the shark when Michelle Obama appeared to announce the best picture winner at the Oscars. Press secretary Carney proudly tweeted out a photo today.
Notice anything? Twitter users did.
Laura Ingraham asks a key question.
Asked, and answered.
That’s right. She didn’t even thank them:
She declared of the Best Picture nominees, “They reminded us that we can overcome any obstacle if we dig deep enough and fight hard enough and find the courage within ourselves.” Alas, none of the films nor her aides reminded her to mention the military, not those personnel behind her nor those serving overseas, an odd omission for the White House that nevertheless was pleased to have them arrayed behind her like, well, set decoration.
The disgust and outragre rightly continue.
Amen. Our men and women in uniform deserve unending gratitude, not to be used as props for someone else’s gain.
This Twitter user puts it in a sad nutshell.
