14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed—a Muslim student living in Irving, Texas—makes a clock and brings it to school to show to his teacher. He is then wrongfully accused of making a bomb and arrested.
After the facts came out, President Obama wrote this to Ahmed: “Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.”
Then Bristol Palin then responded with this: “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.”
So there you have it in a nutshell—the difference between the philosophies of President Obama and the Republicans. One tries to uplift people; the other is just mean.
