Following his arrest Monday and its subsequent viral story, 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed received an invitation from President Barack Obama to visit the White House.
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.
— President Obama (@POTUS) September 16, 2015
But another teen has some words for Ahmed and the President.
CJ Pearson, 13, who describes himself as a conservative political activist, said Obama’s invitation to Ahmed shows the President is “ignorant,” “incompetent” and he doesn’t “understand reality.”
Pearson, who creates his popular YouTube videos from his house in Georgia, first made an Internet splash with a video in February where he told President Barack Obama that he doesn’t love America. He followed up with a video of sharp critiques about civil rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton.
In his latest video against the Democratic President, Pearson said he wants to know Obama’s priorities.
“When cops are gunned down, you don’t invite them to the White House. You never did. But when a Muslim kid builds a clock, come on by. What is this world you’re living in?” he said in the video. “When the shooting in Chattanooga happened, it took you longer to lower the flag to half staff than it took you to light the White House in rainbow colors after the SCOTUS decision legalizing gay marriage.”
Here’s Pearson’s call-out of Obama’s invite to Ahmed, which as of early Friday afternoon had been watched on YouTube more than 350,000 times:
