Upon the completion of the 2012 presidential election, President Obama‘s campaign apparatus morphed into Organizing for Action, an entity tasked with advocating for the president’s agenda.
And a tweet posted Thursday from OFA’s Twitter account was doing just that.
Building on the Democrat’s fabricated “war on women,” the tweet pushed the myth that woman are being denied access to birth control — a clear play on the Hobby Lobby ruling by the Supreme Court.

Unfortunately for OFA, there were a few Twitter users willing to call it for what is it — “absolute rubbish.” Twitchy.com captured some other responses:
@OFA Absolute rubbish.

@OFA Remember a time when there was such a thing as personal responsibility.

I’m old enough to remember when I bought my own shit and didn’t beg my boss to pay for it. @OFA

A short time later, Obama’s official Twitter account got in on the propaganda:
— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) July 3, 2014
The tweet prompted a great question, but I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting on an answer:
Is a Obama okay with these lies being published under his name? https://t.co/ryF286qG7r
