President Obama’s disturbing habit of treating the White House like his own personal property was on full display again this week — and social media watchers were waiting.
On Tuesday, the president greeted a gathering of Girl Scouts, who were camping on the South Lawn of his majesty’s house as part of Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign, as only he could can.
“What are you guys doing in my yard?” he asked the girls according to USA Today. “When did you guys show up?”
Even liberals like Melissa Harris-Perry are getting tired of it, slamming the language Obama used when he shouted down a heckler by calling the White House “my house.” Normally an Obama fan, she sounded like Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly when he denounced Obama for lighting up the White House with rainbow after the Supreme Court’s decision on gay marriage last week.
But, perhaps because Team Obama is starting to realize what a PR nightmare it is for the president to treat “The People’s House” like it’s his own.
The administration made a small gesture Wednesday when it announced it would lift a decades old policy that banned taking photos inside the White House and it commemorated the announcement by releasing a “hey look at me” video of the first lady tearing up the no photos sign.
A particularly nominal gesture for her as she announced she’s going to be milking taxpayer funded trips for the rest of her husband’s term so chances are she won’t be at the White House all that much.
