MSNBC has made a habit out of protecting President Obama‘s backside, so it’s not surprising that the network would jump on the story of a small figurine of Obama’s head being placed in a urinal at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority Conference in Washington, D.C.
Igor Bobic, associate editor for The Huffington Post, tweeted a photo of the offending urinal:

The Associated Press report ran on MSNBC’s website inaccurately attributed the social conservative 501(c)(4) non-profit organization as being a product of the GOP, which the network gladly picked up on in a tweet:

The report offered nothing to suggest Faith & Freedom was responsible for the figurine being in the urinal in the men’s restroom at the Omni Shoreham Hotel — a large facility.
A spokesperson for the group told MSNBC they “strongly condemn” the act, but the network was not to be deterred, even though it’s possible the figurine was a plant.
We at BizPac Review certainly concur with the representative, who said: “No matter how anyone may feel about the president’s policies, the man and the office deserves to be treated with respect.”
Twitter users were quick to offer a little perspective, as captured by Twitchy:

Game of Thrones put Bush’s head on a pike and they laughed. An Obama figurine winds up in a urinal and they freak out. Liberals…I swear. — Matthew (@Matthops82) June 20, 2014
