Despite the chaos, Islamic terrorism, and grief gripping Europe and the Middle East, President Obama has chosen to not meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu but instead gave an hour to GloZell Green, Hank Green, and Bethany Mota. For those who don’t know, these three are YouTube sensations with millions of followers.
GloZell is famous for her bright green lipstick, eating hot peppers and spoonfuls of cinnamon, and sitting in a bathtub full of Froot Loops. Mota is a teen who is known for her videos about fashion and style. Green (no relation to GloZell) is known for his videos about science and history.
Civil Rights leader and executive director of TheTeaParty.net Niger Innis and radio host Richard Fowler joined Martha MacCullum on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom to discuss why Obama would rather snub America’s ally to join three YouTubers.

“I think it’s a great, great, great idea,” Fowler said. “I think that just shows the power of YouTube and the power of social media to help change discourse in this country.”
Innis wasn’t amused and added that the commitment of Obama to snub Netanyahu was “an abysmal mistake on his part.”
“This is the first entertainment-created president,” Innis rebutted. “… This is the first president who was largely created due to a good speech that he gave and an entertainment mythology that was created about his candidacy, and what he would do as president of the United States.

“It’s a question of priorities and it’s a huge priority problem when the president of the United States makes an extraordinary amount of time to engage the entertainment community, but he does not set aside time for critical meetings like that with our most important ally in the Middle East, that being Israel, during a time of war, that we’re at war with Islamic extremism,” Innis added.
