The President of the National Rifle Association attempted to defend the group’s new controversial ad that has drawn a firestorm of attention for referencing the President’s children by saying the ad wasn’t really about them. David Keene ‘explained’ (poorly) on CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday that the ad is “not about them specifically,” arguing the television commercial was more than just about President Barack Obama’s children.
Keene will have to double down on his defense because his gun lobbyist group just did it again. The first ad was widely condemned even by Conservatives, so the NRA has tried again, I suppose hoping to surpass their first attack on Malia and Sasha Obama.
Wash, rinse, repeat:
Media Matters reports, “The ad also highlights the number of armed guards at the school attended by President Obama’s daughters to make the claim that the President is a hypocrite for stating that he is “skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools.”
Right. Our first Black President who has received more death threats than prior Presidents should not have guards protecting his children. Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Richard Nixon supported gun control, but Obama tries to take the same measures and he’s a dictator trying to take away our rights. Do these people hear what comes out of their mouths?
