Former Tea Party congressman Joe Walsh took to his Twitter account this morning to criticize first lady Michelle Obama for planning to attend the funeral of young Chicago shooting victim Hadiya Pendleton.
In his first of two tweets directed at the first lady, Walsh wrote, “‘Heartbroken’ Michelle Obama attending funeral of Hadiya Pendleton. I guess the other 553 murder victims didn’t break her heart. (1/2)”
Walsh’s follow-up tweet reads: “Most of the 553 Chicago murder victims in 2012 & 2013 were young black males. Is she attending this funeral to make a political point? (2/2)”
Fifteen-year-old Hadiya Pendleton was gunned down January 29th just a mile from the president’s Chicago home.
