A couple days ago, I read this very disturbing headline on Politico:

McKayla Maroney not impressed with Obama?

For those of you who don't remember, this is the "teenage" USA gymnast who became famous for her infamous scowl after placing third in her event. Why was Politico writing stories about a teenager's tweets?  

Oh yeah, any criticism of Obama makes headlines over-there. Their important breaking story:

Star vaulter McKayla Maroney tweeted about her White House visit on Thursday: “Did I just do the Not Impressed face with the President..?”

Maroney, whose unenthusiastic facial expressions started a meme over the summer, was visiting 1600 Penn. with fellow Olympic gymnasts Gabby Douglas, Kyla Ross, Aly Raisman and Jordyn Wieber. According to the AP, the group met with Obama in the Oval Office and stuck around to see him depart on Marine One.

They sourced their great reveal from this tweet:

"Did I just do the Not Impressed face with the President..?"

So without getting context, the right-wing Politico tossed red-meat to their fans from a teenager's tweet.

That my friends is some sad, sad stuff.

Well...today, they have "stupid" all over their faces because the lil media savvy teenager was just teasing this picture below the jump as reported by:



The girl was having a ball with the pres!!!

Politico showed it's partisan soul again.
