On her Patheos blog, Bristol Palin chided President Obama for extending a White House invitation to Ahmed Mohamed, the 14-year-old Texas student arrested for bringing a homemade digital clock to school that was mistaken for a suitcase bomb.

Palin wrote, “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.”

Palin suggested that President Obama’s actions would “put more people against” members of our law enforcement, who have become the target of attacks encouraged by the violent anti-police rhetoric of some members of the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Why egg it on?” she asked. “Childish games like this from our president have divided our country… even more today than when he was elected.”
