President Obama Blocks CJ Pearson On Twitter, Teen Activist Claims

A Twitter post by CJ Pearson, the 13-year-old critic of President Obama, showing what appears to be @POTUS blocking him has sent the internet into a frenzy over the past few days.

Opponents of the president have used the opportunity to insult the president, challenging his ability to intellectually compete with a 13-year-old, according to The Washington Post.

Pearson’s initial breakthrough into politics, a move which helped establish him as an Internet celebrity of sorts, came in the form of a video posted to YouTube back in February.

In the video — his first video, inspired by one of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s political rants — Pearson said that he doesn’t “want to be politically correct” and that he doesn’t “care about being politically correct” as he went onto say, “President Obama: You don’t love America. If you loved America, you would call ISIS what it is” and not “try to take away what hard-working Americans have worked for their entire lives.”

I don’t want to be politically correct (…) I don’t care about being politically correct at this point. President Obama: You don’t love America. If you loved America, you would call ISIS what it is… if you loved America, President Obama, you wouldn’t try to take away what hard-working Americans have worked for their entire lives.

The video seen above, which was posted to YouTube on February 21, has been viewed over 2 million times since it was first published.

In response to the video, YouTube user ‘botchedonce’ wrote, “Kid speaks the truth. No one is doing more to destroy America than Obama.”

Kid speaks the truth. No one is doing more to destroy America than Obama.

The YouTube video was exactly what CJ needed to propel him into the world of politics.  In May, he was given a five minute interview with Senator Ted Cruz.

More recently, CJ posted yet another video that went viral criticizing President Obama’s for what he considers an inappropriate invitation for 14-year-old Ahmed Muhamed to visit the White House.  In the video, he questions why Obama would rather invite a child to the White House just because he was a Muslim that built a clock, when the families of police officers that were killed don’t get so much as a call from him, let alone an invitation.  The video has received just under 2 million times in the past eleven days.

With so much viral anti-Obama criticism coming from this teenager, it’s not too far-fetched to believe he might have gone and got himself put on ignore by our Commander in Chief.  USA Today reports, however, that the White House press secretary Frank Benenati was quick to deny that the @POTUS account was blocking the thirteen-year-old.

CJ maintains that the picture he posted was not a hoax, and the contradicting claims by different sources are leaving many unsure of what to think about the incident.
