Did the White House mock ‘Benghazi acrostic’ to push #RaiseTheWage?

, , , , , , , ,

The White House continues to find new ways to say the same old things.

Case in point:

Nobody&;who&010;works&010;full-time&010;should&010;have&010;to&010;live&010;in&010;poverty.&010;http://t.co/oEArnaztyE&010;RaiseTheWage pic.twitter.com/FjCsB0bysb

— The White House (@WhiteHouse) October 6, 2014

Maybe the same message vertically instead of horizontally will make more sense! The White House&;s tweet, while not an acrostic, seems to be an attempt to mock a style of tweeting some have used to call attention to Benghazi.

@WhiteHouse Look, I know you&;re out of practice, but that&039;s not how you do a BENGHAZI acrostic.

The White House&8217;s tweet was instantly mocked and schooled:
