The White House tweets a picture of President Obama holding a baby, Republican heads explode

Republicans, for the love of all that is good, get some help. The White House tweeted out a picture of President Obama holding a  baby and Republican heads exploded. All the right wing sites are picking up this news breaking story.

The Blaze ran with this headline (which is false, duh!), “WHITE HOUSE CELEBRATES ARRIVAL OF ROYAL BABY WITH… A PICTURE OF OBAMA.” The Republican caps are theirs, not mine.

It began with this tweet:

PJ media’s post in total reads, “So the geniuses at the White House decided that it was a good idea to insert President Obama into the buzz about the British royal baby birth today. So they tweeted.An official statement of congratulations on White House stationery would have been more dignified. This is the birth of England’s 43rd monarch, after all. The royal baby turned out to be a boy. The baby in the photo is wearing a pink onesie with little pink flowers on her diaper, and is therefore a girl.”    

No shit it’s a girl! So we can conclude that this is just an image of Obama holding a baby and not a conspiracy. Even if this represented a congratulatory tweet, welcome to 2013, where we have the social media at our bidding to tweet pictures.

The bullshit:


The outrage:

The idiocy:

A Tweet from the Right Sphere, who I blocked ages ago:

Why is it ‘creepy’ that the President is holding a baby? No wonder I blocked the creep.

The assholes:

The reality via a congratulatory statement: 

Michelle and I are so pleased to congratulate the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the joyous occasion of the birth of their first child. We wish them all the happiness and blessings parenthood brings. The child enters the world at a time of promise and opportunity for our two nations. Given the special relationship between us, the American people are pleased to join with the people of the United Kingdom as they celebrate the birth of the young prince.

More reality:

It’s my understanding that the baby in the picture belongs to a staffer who is leaving.

Weasel Zippers (a far right wing cesspool) ran with the tweeted picture adding, “Is it me or does Obama look like he’s about to vomit on that baby?”

I thought you guys were pro-life? Obama holds a baby = eevil! Twitchy ran with the tweet. Others did too but I’m  tired of linking to them. I can only take so much hatred in one day. Don’t judge me.

    I would rather congratulate every couple in the world, who brought forth a child on this day and every day … all children are royalty …

      Republicans are such royalists. During the revolution, they would have fought right alongside of England against our Independence.

    Pretty sure it wouldn’t matter what picture the White House tweeted. They’re always gonna be hateful pricks. Hateful is as hateful does. It could be a picture of Obama saving a dog from a house fire, Obama eating a grape, Obama clipping his nails, Obama hugging grandma, doesn’t matter, they will always find something evil about it, even the most innocuous thing.

    President Obama, is known as the baby whisperer. He is seen and photographed with many children. The truth be told. The babies don’t like the Re-thugs. They cry every time. It is just something about their presence (Re-thugs) that upsets them, as well. Listen to the children. They know!

  • Carla Akins

    I don’t know why I continue to be stunned and confused but – first why is this an “english” looking baby? Second, why is the offensive to ANYONE? Don’t these people get tired from the constant hate and anger, because they exhaust me.

    • searambler

      You mean you can’t look at a picture of a baby and instantly tell its country of origin?
      LOL! Apparently Republicans can…..

  • mrsgunka

    I wish they would make up their mind. Do they like babies or not? Just not ones held by our President in the oval office, I see. I guess it would take a little effort to check out what the photo was about and why. Had nothing to do with the Royal baby. I don’t believe the freakin’ people!

      The repubs don’t like kids. Pre-born and born-again are fine but kids need to have their diapers changed, their noses cleaned and their booboos kissed.

  • Glenna Jones-Kachtik

    Just because the baby is white, it does not necessarily follow that it is “English Looking”. WTF does that even mean????? I am sure Hannity has not seen this – he would have devoted a WHOLE show to it & trashing Obama for holding the baby.

    no. once they leave the womb, they require no attention whatsoever, says the GOP. that’s what nannies and private school are for.
