On Wednesday amid a school shooting in Uvalde Texas that had America in shock, former President Barrack Obama felt the need to bring the shooting up, but place it on the back burner. Obama wanted to remind everyone, that it was the 2-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death.
Fox News reported, Nineteen children and two teachers of Robb Elementary School were murdered by an 18-year-old gunman, who was killed during a gunfire exchange with authorities. Tuesday’s tragedy is now among the worst mass shootings in U.S. history.
“As we grieve the children of Uvalde today, we should take time to recognize that two years have passed since the murder of George Floyd under the knee of a police officer,” he distastefully tweeted.
Obama has quickly ripped apart in the comments with other users claiming that nobody cares about Floyd the day after a mass shooting. They said that the country is grieving and that the tragedy shouldn’t be seen as an opportunity to remind people about previous tragedies.
Andy Ngo pointed out that there seems to be no connection whatsoever between these toe things. Why even bring it up in the same tweet? Why not make two separate tweets? One about Uvalde, and one about Floyd?
Many consider the tweet incredibly inappropriate, and extremely out of line. George Floyd was just another example of someone who died tragically, becoming the fuel for democrat agendas.
