Women and children as shields: Media comes to Obama’s rescue, again!

President Obama‘s spin doctors in the media have had a busy week covering for him missing the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

It started Saturday when the hashtag #ObamaAndKids surfaced on Twitter, started by liberal activist Michael Skolnik, that showed Obama interacting with children, particularly black children, during his time as president.

Then on Monday, all the major networks, CBS, ABC, NBC and others, couldn’t stop playing a clip of the president dancing with a 106-year-old black woman who said she thought she’d never live to see a black president.

Who, besides anyone who has actually paid attention for the past seven years, would’ve guessed that at a moment when President Obama was in desperate need of good optics, his friends in the media would rush to his rescue?

Watch the clip below.
