White House: Obama Doesn't Read His Own Tweets

At the White House Press briefing yesterday, Jonathan Karl asked WH spokesman Josh Earnest if President Obama was aware of the tweets published from his twitter account. "Does he even read the others, does know they’re going out? Are they reviewed by senior people at the White House or is that just simply OFA doing something on his behalf?"

Earnest replied that @BarackObama was maintained by OFA, Organizing for Action.  OFA is "the grassroots movement fighting for the agenda Americans voted for in 2012. We are millions of people, empowering individuals to make their voices heard."

"I’m not sure if he was aware of that tweet. Because the Twitter handle is maintained independent of the White House, I was not aware of it." Earnest explained.

(These people are not aware of ANYTHING apparently.)

At issue, was Obama's tweet last Thursday with the hashtag #TBT (throwback Thursday) where the Obama twitter account longed for the time last week when women, not bosses, made their own decisions about health care. 

Karl pushed Earnest further: "Does the president believe that because of the Hobby Lobby decision, women are not allowed to make their own decisions about their health care?"
