PETA

Swats at Obama

for Killing That Fly!

6/17/2009 12:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

PETA is finally going after President Barack Obama for delivering capital punishment to a housefly on the White House grounds yesterday -- a death that was caught on tape.


When asked for comment, here's the statement PETA released: 

"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."

We're told the fly's carcass has been moved to a secret location ... we're guessing the bottom of a White House trash can.

Here we go again! If there's someone in office people pick them to death! No wonder they age so much by the time they leave the Presidency!

I'm a PETA supporter and I always stand up for what they do because in most cases, they do it out of caring for animals.

But this makes me feel embarrassed.

Are you freaking kidding me?! For goodness sakes, it is a FLY!!! They annoy the hell out of everyone, they're germy, they're gross, they're icky. Eww! It's a fly, what is the issue here? I'd have killed it as well. Peta is ridiculous!

Actually, at first when Obama was swatting the fly, it was kinda funny. But when he killed it and swept it away with his foot and then pointed to it? Not so humorous. I don't like flies but...

WTF? Flies deserve to live just as much as any other animal! Obama is a jerk...I hope he is prosecuted for animal abuse! Another reason to admire and respect a fine man like President Bush.
