Interesting? Or infuriating? Soon after news broke of the death of Robin Williams, President Obama released a brief statement praising Williams’ talents and offering condolences “to Robin’s family, his friends, and everyone who found their voice and their verse thanks to Robin Williams.”
How about that other bit of breaking news in Ferguson, Mo.? Has it reached the newspapers in Martha’s Vineyard yet?
Search "#Ferguson Obama." Nobody happy with the president tonight. Anger that he addressed Robin Williams b4 Michael Brown.

Obama made a statement about passing of Robin Williams but ain't said jack about Michael Brown & current drama in Ferguson. He's so wack.

How is Obama going to make a statement about Robin Williams but not about what happened to Michael Brown or John Crawford…

President Obama released a statement on Robin Williams within hours of his death but he has yet to release a statement on #ferguson why?

Interesting, Obama managed to pull himself away from his golfing & comment on Robin Williams, yet hasn't said anything on #Ferguson..

Has Obama responded to the incidents in #Ferguson yet? Haven't seen anything on my TL, other than his condolences for death of a celebrity.

Did Obama really address Robin Williams' death before uttering a word about #Ferguson? Don't need a speech but still….
