As Twitchy has reported in the past, the Obama administration is quite fond of using social media as a vehicle to express its outrage at America’s enemies. And their social-media war continues…

Ambassador Samantha Power tweeted out these excerpts earlier today from the latest UN’s report detailing the horrific atrocities committed by ISIS against the Yazidi people, but we’re not sure if the reaction from Tweeters was what she expected.

First up, here are Power’s tweets:

Now, the reaction:

At some point, the Obama administration has to realize that tweeting out outrage at ISIL is not the same as fighting ISIL.


The initial version of this post incorrectly referred to Amb. Samantha Power as “Susan Power.” We regret the error.


Did Ambassador Samantha Power call for gender quotas at the UN?
