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.

Does PETA realize that a Fly is not an animal it is an insect. Which spreads all kinds of diseases all over the world. I would say the President saved a lot of lives by slamming that bug. Besides I never saw a commercial for mistreated insects, am I going to start seeing them now.

Forget it Biff. These tools don't understand what a joke is. They don't even understand the story is a joke. Positively pathetic.

Oh please. This is someone who just wants her name in the news. And if he had not killed the fly, the headlines would be something like, "Obama is so weak, he cannot even kill a fly!"

This story is just laughable.

I am all for animal rights, but this story is not news worthy and i do not think a fly is considered a animal. Considering it comes from Larve
