Oh good, we all wanted to hear from Barack Obama about gun violence today.
And yet here we are, reading and writing about his tweet. To be fair, if he hadn’t talked about wearing orange which makes all sorts of #ObamaGate jokes possible, we probably would have skipped over it. WELL, that and the number of people angry with him for not fixing gun violence especially in Black communities is pretty darn impressive as well.
Take a look:
On National Gun Violence Awareness Day, we #WearOrange to honor the victims and survivors of gun violence––which continues to disproportionately harm Black communities. Then keep speaking up, voting, and changing laws across the country.

Obama. Make a like a tree and shut up. Wait, that’s not how it goes.
You did nothing. pic.twitter.com/2XgqNACbbL

So @BarackObama, your Hollywood Homies are petitioning to #DefundPolice, and you and your cohorts want to take away the #2ndAmendment. These two things cannot exist in the same universe at the same time. This will only lead to vigilante justice, just the the Wild West.

Gun violence disproportionately affecting black communities is happening in democrat run cities with strict gun control laws.
WTF are you talking about???

You should wear orange, an orange jumpsuit.

Why didn't you do anything about gun violence when you were president? Why did you sign a bill to protect crooked police?
