Saturday marked the 72nd anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, and while the nation remembers the “day which will live in infamy,” apparently the Obama White House – not so much.
As of noon, neither the official Twitter account of the White House nor President Obama’s had acknowledged the attack on the base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, even though that is the state of the president’s birth, and the state he will spend Christmas in.
Looking back at the tweets from the White House and Obama over the last month on days of remembrance, perhaps an easy explanation for the administration’s failure to recognize Pearl Harbor might be because there is no official photograph of the president at the site.
Consider the narcissist-in-chief’s recent tweets, all with pictures of Obama, for:
