"Clock-boy" Ahmed Mohamed
Controversy arose in 2015 as Ahmed Mohamed invented a "clock" designed to look like a fake bomb and brought it to school as if it were an appropriate school project. Due to the sensitivity to mass attacks, especially in schools, Ahmed was escorted out of the school in handcuffs for investigation. The loony left immediately jumped on this story and depicted Ahmed as a victim of racial prejudice. Immediately, Obama tweeted, "Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It's what makes America great."
