Say it ain’t so!
On Thursday, Bristol Palin criticized President Barack Obama (shocker, we know) for “egging” on racial divides by inviting a 14-year-old Texas student to the White House who was wrongfully arrested after bringing a self-made clock to school.
ICYMI: The internet came to the defense of Ahmed Mohamed earlier this week after he was accused by his teachers for making a hoax bomb. Oh no!
In fact, the ninth-grader’s since received shout-outs and invitations from various industry powerhouses, such as Google and Facebook, after the news broke that the talented youth was singled out for being Muslim.
However, the coolest praise might’ve come from POTUS himself.
The Commander-In-Chief took to Twitter and shared:
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.

Although, it seems this nice gesture was a bit too much for Sarah Palin‘s daughter.
The Dancing With The Stars alum took to her blog and wrote:
“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├óΓé¼┬ª even more today than when he was elected.”
HUH?! We don’t think the President is trying to “egg” anything on — rather he’s trying to make a bright student, who was targeted for his background, feel validated and special after having something so awful happen to him.
We think Bristol’s reaching a bit on this complaint to say the least.
What do U think?! Do U agree with POTUS or Miz Palin??
