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.

    No matter what the President or Mrs. Obama do, people are not gonna be satisfied. I say do what you think is best and what your conscience can live with.

    Joe walsh is absolutely right! All the kids who murdered in chicago and only one recieves national attention? Just because she was an honor student and performed in washington? She is no more special than all the other kids who were murdered last year, their parents loved them too…

    Oh right they were not honor students nor did they go to the inauguration therefore their deaths are not as sad as queen hadiya’s……. guess they don’t matter as much !

  • Joe Walsh need to worry more about paying his child support and less about who’s funeral Mrs. Obama attends….My sympathy to everyone whom ever lose a love one to senseless violences…….case close
