Conservative activist and convicted felon Dinesh D’Souza on Wednesday raised the bar for his incomprehensible Twitter feed, tweeting a photo of President Obama with the message, “YOU CAN TAKE THE BOY OUT OF THE GHETTO.”

D’Souza criticized the “vulgar man” Obama for using a “selfie-stick” in a recent video produced by BuzzFeed that promotd the Affordable Care Act. He then decided to forgo a dog whistle and bashed out a racial slur in all caps.

Shortly after, D’Souza followed up his initial “ghetto” tweet:
