After Mohamed was arrested and suspended last month for bringing a homemade “clock” to school that looked suspiciously like a bomb, President Obama had invited Mohamed to to the White House.
In spite of being thrilled to, along with his family, meet with the Sudanese leader who is “wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes in Darfur,” Mohamed’s visit with Obama is reportedly still on:

The White House has not announced any change of plans for Mohamed’s visit to an Astronomy Night event on Monday, according to Fox News.
@foxnewspolitics Obama never lets the facts get in the way. I am sure he will word-smith this, like always.

Surely the White House will be spinning this, just like they always do? This story is smelling more & more fishy. https://t.co/XDg5KWV5Ym
