Only days after President Obama invited Ahmed “Clock Boy” Mohamed to the White House to exhibit his bogus “invented” digital clock, the U.S. Secret Service was kicking hundreds of cancer-stricken children and their parents out of a nearby park, citing “security precautions.”
The parents and children gathered at Lafayette Park Saturday night for a scheduled candlelight vigil to call attention to childhood cancer and push for increased funding for cancer research, according to The Washington Post.
The vigil was part of a two-day event called CureFest for Childhood Cancer.
The Post tweeted:

Twitter users also noted the irony of the situation, given the president’s personal invitation to the Muslim “Clock Boy” who raised a security alarm of his own. The heap of circuits and wires — which many are now saying was actually a taken-apart clock, not the boy’s invention — looked enough like a homemade bomb to trigger a real security question at his school.
@washingtonpost give them a briefcase with a clock in it. Bet they could stay!
