Can this guy do anything right?
Today, Organizing For Action, the group responsible for managing President Obama’s Twitter account, sent out the following asinine tweet:
— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) June 10, 2014
Now, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that the first manned mission to the moon took place in 1969, not 1963.
But what do you expect from a man who wants to change our history and our traditions?
What’s so frustrating about this tweet is not that it quotes the wrong year for the first moon landing.
In fact, Organizing For Action is likely referencing the year in which the Equal Pay Act was signed into law, which was 1963. However, OFA has committed such an epic marketing fail by using an iconic photo taken in a completely different year that they might as well have gotten the moon landing year wrong.
What’s so frustrating about this tweet is that President Obama is quoted as saying, “Women still don’t have equal pay.” Yet, he knows full well that women working in his own administration earn 11.8% less on average than men do.
In other words, President Obama is plagued by the same income inequality gap that he claims to be fighting.
Here is how President Obama’s tweet ought to read:
#TimeForProgress indeed, Mr. President.
