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:
Oh, hello there! pic.twitter.com/WvoZ2WiIrs

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.

A Tweet from the Right Sphere, who I blocked ages ago:
That’s creepy as hell. — RB (@RBPundit) July 22, 2013
Why is it ‘creepy’ that the President is holding a baby? No wonder I blocked the creep.

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.
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.
