Former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin took to social media to hammer President Obama — and his intelligence advisers — for a "knows nothing, sees nothing, and hears nothing unless his lapdogs bark" mentality in reference to the secret waiting lists scandal at VA hospitals.

Palin lambasts the "community organizer in chief" for a pattern of complicit ignorance concerning major scandals within his administration, including Benghazi, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, Fast and Furious, and the NSA’s spying practices, Breitbart reports.

Her snarky Facebook post includes a video montage of the president and members of his "dysfunctional, disinterested staff" repeatedly "using his favorite convenient excuse" that they first learned of the controversies through press reports.

Story continues below video.

"The head of a government that has the most sophisticated spying apparatus ever created can monitor who we talk to, what we talk about, how many Twinkies our kids eat and the calories we consume, where we travel, etc., etc., yet announces our president’s daily intelligence report is actually prepared by Matt Drudge," Palin wrote. "Hmmm. Perhaps the NSA should take out ads in the sports section to assure the president reads his morning intelligence briefing."

The post has so far received 21,306 "likes" and been shared nearly 3,000 times, in addition to more than 1,200 comments.

Breitbart previously reported that during the president’s tenure in office, he has attended less than half – 43.8 percent – of his daily intelligence briefings, including not having attended a single intelligence briefing the week before the Sept. 11, 2012, terror attacks in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Breitbart cited its source of the information as a report from the Government Accountability Institute, a conservative investigative research organization.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney didn’t dispute the institute's findings, but explained that if Obama is not there in person, he "religiously reads a written version of the same prepared material, often on a secure iPad."
