As Twitchy reported, tensions escalated in Ferguson, Mo., as people took to the streets in anti-police protests over the shooting of a black teenager named Mike Brown. The protests turned violent with riots and looting.
Where is President Obama?
Once Obama gets done with his 18 holes of golf, he's sure to throw gas on the #Ferguson fire. That's what community organizers do.

It's times like this because of #Ferguson a calm voice like Obama's would be welcome, but he's busy summering in The Hamptons.

Be careful what you wish for. Twitter users have some predictions about what oh-so-brilliant statement Obama will offer up.
How long before Obama takes a minute away from Martha's Vineyard to state that if he had some sons, they'd look like the Ferguson Looters.
