It's Wednesday. Need a hug? pic.twitter.com/DyQtVrZB4S— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) May 1, 2013
The prop-aganda, it scorches! OFA is taking a page from President Prop-aganda himself. Today, the OFA-run (wink wink, nudge nudge) @BarackObama Twitter account tweeted out that photo with the pitiful “need a hug” line. The photo, with a beautiful little girl, was taken in front of a portrait of Abraham Lincoln, natch.
David Gregory must be swooning! Huffington Post did swoon.
Distract! Distract like the wind!
It’s surprising that President Obama would choose to be “punished” with someone else’s child! But, hey, photo ops.
Citizens are disgusted by the constant use of children as props and swiftly called out the pathetic display. They also suggested different captions and let the president know what they really need. Hint: It is not a hug from Obama.
Keep them coming, Twitter. And Twitter? About that verified @BarackObama account: Time to revisit that?
