Bristol Palin Slams President Obama for Inviting Ahmed Mohamed to the White House: 'This Encourages More Racial Strife'
Bristol Palin wrote on her blog that President Obama's invitation for Ahmed Mohamed to visit the White House "encourages victimhood"
President Barack Obama‘s special invitation to the White House for 9th grader Ahmed Mohamed, who was detained by police after his homemade clock was mistaken for a bomb at school earlier this week, doesn’t sit well with at least one person: Bristol Palin.
Like many celebrities and politicians, Obama showed his support for the teenager on social media and tweeted, “Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.”
The Texas student brought the homemade clock to school to show off to his engineering teacher but instead was handcuffed by police and suspended after another teacher mistook the device for a bomb.
While Palin wrote on her personal blog that the police “clearly” made a “mistake,” she said she thinks Obama should never have gotten involved.
“This is the kind of stuff Obama needs to STAY out of,” the 24-year-old wrote. “This encourages more racial strife that is already going on with the ‘Black Lives Matter’ crowd and encourages victimhood.”
The daughter of former Alaska gov. Sarah Palin added that Obama’s tweet helped egg on backlash against the responding officers.
“Childish games like this from our president have divided our country,” she wrote. “Even more today than when he was elected.”

Palin is currently pregnant with her second child.
She revealed her pregnancy in June, only a month after canceling her wedding to former U.S. Marine Dakota Meyer.
