President Obama and first lady Michelle were confronted by protesters in Orlando, Fla., bearing signs saying “Kenyan go home” and “impeach Obama.”
The president’s motorcade passed the street-side rally on Saturday morning while traveling to the Disabled American Veterans convention where both Obama’s were scheduled to speak. According to a White House pool report, roughly 50 protesters—”many of them older and most of them white”—were rallying outside the Hilton Orlando where the convention was being held.
This marks the second time just this week that the president was greeted with racially-charged protests while touring the country. On Tuesday, demonstrators outside an Arizona high school where Obama spoke sang “Bye Bye Black Sheep.” One woman held a sign saying “Impeach the Half-White Muslim!” while another accused the president and his supporters of using “the race card” against opponents, AZ Republic reported.
