This just struck me as hilariously funny. I will admit to being sleep deprived which probably has something to do with me finding this so funny.
Waiting for a comment from PETA

“Well, I guess it can’t be said that President Obama wouldn’t hurt a fly. The commander in chief was recently pestered by a fly during an interview. He swatted at the insect and killed the little guy instantly.
Believe it or not, we’ve actually been contacted by multiple media outlets wanting to know PETA’s official response to the executive insect execution.
In a nutshell, our position is this: He isn’t the Buddha, he’s a human being, and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act.
If all this has you wondering how you can be a bigger person (figuratively, as well as literally) in your dealings with exoskeletal beings, check out our handy-dandy bug catcher—one of which we are sending to President Obama for future insect incidents. I can tell you from personal experience that it sure came in handy the other day, when one of my cats was chasing the World’s Largest Palmetto Bug around the house.”

That “handy dandy” bug catcher sounds intriguing. Haven’t had one since the kids grew up
Anti Obama comments are even funnier> some take every opportunity to criticize the President
“A President, with REAL class, would have…….
ignored the fly, and not made a spectacle of himself. But, the rock star thinks he’s cute and has to show off, every time, a camera is on him.”
And this angle “One it’s absolutely ridiculous that ANYONE would be criticized for killing a fly. Secondly, it’s absolutely delicious that PETA is one of the core constituents of the Democratic part.”
