baltimore riot

Last night was the White House Correspondents Dinner. This is incestuous rub-fest where political figures and important media personalities mingle and laugh about how stupid the American people are. While Obama was yucking it up, a race riot was in progress outside the MLB park, Camden Yards, in Baltimore. With its ever perfect sense of timing this is the tweet the White House sent out as the riot was in progress. You have to watch the video clip to really get it.

Tweeting a parody version of the song “I Don’t Care,” featuring Obama would be questionable in the best of times. These are not the best of times. Sending such a tweet as a race riot locks some thousands of Americans into a baseball stadium barely 50 miles away is just stupid and, as such, is a fitting milestone for the YOLO Presidency.
