…your former White House Communications Director and Senior Advisor for Strategy and Communications tries to give you credit for winning a horse race. Yesterday, Dan Pfeiffer tweeted that American Pharoah’s Triple Crown is an “accomplishment” of President Obama’s:
Another accomplishment — Obama first President to have a Triple Crown winner since Carter
— Dan Pfeiffer (@danpfeiffer) June 6, 2015
I have studied that tweet at length and can find no hint of irony. Apparently it really is so difficult to find any positive news associated with the president that the White House is reduced to claiming credit for sports events. Obama’s next accomplishment, presumably, will be winning the NBA title. And just wait until the World Series! Then we will see Obama at his most heroic.
Are these people completely nuts?
