A massive amount of support poured in for Ahmed Mohamed, the young teenager who was arrested after bringing a homemade clock to school. The ninth grader received invitations to visit Google, Facebook, Space Camp, and of course, the White House. Bristol Palin, however, is not amused.
The mother-to-be has some words to share about the president’s gesture, the Huffington Post reports. From Palin’s blog:
This is the kind of stuff Obama needs to STAY out of. This encourages more racial strife that is already going on with the “Black Lives Matter” crowd and encourages victimhood. The police made a mistake, clearly. But why put more people against them? Why egg it on? Childish games like this from our president have divided our country… even more today than when he was elected.
Actually, Bristol, this “childish game” may help an innocent child recover from a terribly racist incident and show him that his intelligence and creativity is something that the entire country can appreciate. Come talk to me when you learn how to build a clock yourself. A cuckoo clock, that is.
