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 works full-time should have to live in poverty. http://t.co/oEArnaztyE #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's not how you do a BENGHAZI acrostic.

The White House’s tweet was instantly mocked and schooled:

This is also how the cheaper more dependable burger robots speak RT @WhiteHouse: Nobody who works full-time should have to live in poverty.

Raising The Minimum Wage won't change this. RT @WhiteHouse Nobody who works full-time should have to live in poverty.

If raising the min wage makes ppl less poor, why not a min wage of $1,000,000 a year? Then we'll all be rich! Yay! #RaiseTheWage @WhiteHouse
