So the President used his weekly address to speak to Christians about Easter and Jews about Passover. It's a nice gesture, right? You can go to WhiteHouse.gov and read the transcript. But I will just point out the part that struck me as odd:
The common thread of humanity that connects us all – not just Christians and Jews, but Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs – is our shared commitment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.
Umm, yeah, it's Easter. It's Passover. Why are Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs in this address? So I thought, maybe the President likes to give everyone a shout out. So I Google President Obama & Ramadan. Here's the transcript aaannnnddddd no mention of anyone else.
So, not to sound selfish, but why is President Obama talking about Muslims on our Holy Day? I'll say it. It's an asshat move.
