Bristol Palin wrote on her blog Thursday that President Obama “needs to STAY out of” the case of a 14-year-old Muslim student in Texas who was wrongly arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school.

Obama invited the teen, Ahmed Mohamed, to the White House on Wednesday after news of his arrest went viral. The invitation, Palin wrote, only invited “more racial strife.”

Mohamed was arrested earlier this week after police were called to investigate the clock he brought to his suburban Dallas high school. After his release, he was invited to tour Facebook, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the University of Texas at Austin.

He also got a special invitation from President Obama:

But Palin, the daughter of former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, said the invitation was a mistake:

This is the kind of stuff Obama needs to STAY out of. This encourages more racial strife that is already going on with the “Black Lives Matter” crowd and encourages victimhood.

The police made a mistake, clearly.

But why put more people against them? Why egg it on? Childish games like this from our president have divided our country… even more today than when he was elected.
