The arrest of a Muslim teen
for bringing to school what some teachers thought was a suitcase bomb was a mistake, but President Barack Obama made it worse with a "childish" invite to the White House, according to Bristol Palin.
Blogging on Patheos,
the daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin scolded Obama for encouraging "victimhood."
"This is the kind of stuff Obama needs to stay out of," Palin writes. "This encourages more racial strife that is already going on with the 'Black Lives Matter' crowd and encourages victimhood."
The family of 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed said he was suspended for three days from MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas, after taking his homemade clock to class Monday. He also was detained by police for questioning about the clock.
The boy's father told the New York Times
on Friday his son won't be going back at all to MacArthur, and has had several offers from other schools.
"The police made a mistake, clearly," Palin writes. "But why put more people against them? Why egg it on? Childish games like this from our president have divided our country… even more today than when he was elected. "
