Obama insults stay-at-home moms; ‘not a choice WE want Americans to make’ – who’s ‘WE?’

The thought of stay-at-home moms being a noble profession seems to be lost on President Obama and his fellow Democrats.

Speaking in Rhode Island Friday, the president was driving the oft-debunked theory of women earning lower wages in the workplace when he began talking about the need for better daycare and preschool facilities — on Uncle Sam’s dime of course.

“Sometimes, someone, usually mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result. And that’s not a choice we want Americans to make,” Obama said.

“Moms and dads deserve a great place to drop their kids off every day that doesn’t cost them an arm and a leg,” Obama added.

But for some social media users, the remark about about staying at home not being a choice “we want Americans to make” felt like Obama was dissing stay-at-home moms, and left others users wondering just who is “we?”

Here are a few responses to that suggestion, as seen on Twitter:
