Last week five police officers in Dallas were assassinated by a black nationalist. Today, President Obama spoke at an interfaith memorial service to honor the officers and their sacrifice.
During his remarks, President Obama couldn't help himself and lectured the country about gun control.
"We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to by a Glock than to get his hands on a computer" —@POTUS— The White House (@WhiteHouse) July 12, 2016
The full statement was, "We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to by a Glock than to get his hands on a computer or a book."
Not only is this statement completely untrue, it was wholly inappropriate for the solemn occasion.
Obama also took a dig at police and promoted the Black Lives Matter movement.
