If there’s one thing Barack Obama seems to love without reservation, it’s…Barack Obama. And the devoted Democratic Party is more than happy to take every opportunity to spread the love among adoring social media sycophants.
Case in point: the Democrats’ latest contest inviting folks to enter for a chance to score a trip to the DNC Winter Meeting in the nation’s capital, where the lucky winner will get to meet the president and come away with that prized possession — a selfie with the man himself.
On their official Twitter account, the Democrat Party is now tweeting to its 356,000 followers the call to action. Forget about learning what POTUS thinks about terrorism, Iran, North Korea, Russia, the economy, the IRS, ObamaCare, Al Sharpton, or even the Grammy Awards. The important thing is to get that moment in the head-trippy spotlight with the rock starriest of commanders in chief, Barack Obama.
Naturally, not everyone on Twitter finds the prez-promoting, donation-seeking contest to be all that cool, as these caustic comments on The Democrats Twitter account prove:
Of course, Obama’s devotion to social media and its vast audience of mostly young and often politically detached users is nothing new, as Twitchy observes:
First it was an interview with “Queen of YouTube” GloZell Green. Next came a sit-down with the brightest thinkers at Vox, the site for brainiac-nerd types.
On Tuesday, President Obama will take his talents to BuzzFeed, the site for people who like lists, cute kittens, and lists of cute kittens, where he’ll sit for another interview and also shoot a video with BuzzFeed Motion Pictures.
