See this girl? Her name is Lauren Pierce.

She’s president of the UT College Republicans in Austin, Texas. She wants to remind y’all that you shouldn’t shoot the president because if you do, then he won’t be the WORST president EVER! Lulz!
Yeah, seriously.
From ABC News:

Hours after Pennsylvania State Police arrested a 21-year-old Idaho man for allegedly firing a semi-automatic rifle at the White House, the top student official for the College Republicans at the University of Texas tweeted that the idea of assassinating President Obama was “tempting.”
At 2:29 p.m. ET, UT’s Lauren E. Pierce wrote: “Y’all as tempting as it may be, don’t shoot Obama. We need him to go down in history as the WORST president we’ve EVER had! #2012.
Pierce, the president of the College Republicans at UT Austin, told ABC News the comment was a “joke” and that the “whole [shooting incident] was stupid.” ‘Giggling, she said that an attempted assassination would “only make the situation worse.”’
“Insofar as she’s a representative [of the College Republicans], maybe it shouldn’t be said, but she’s made a positive statement in a way,” said Cassie Wright, the group’s vice president.
“I don’t really see anything wrong with it,” Wright added. “It’s just a personal comment, not representative of any group. Just freedom of speech, you know?”

Um, no.

So I’m going to make y’all a deal, College Republicans. And by College Republicans, I mean all of you across the country. How about you stop posting the picture of the supposed OWS protester pooping on the cop car, and painting Occupy Wall Street with that broad brush, and I won’t claim the only thing stopping College Republicans from assassinating the president is that he needs to go down in history as the WORST president EVER, mmkay?
Oh, and acting like you need to remind people to not shoot the president isn’t a “positive statement.” It’s a wink and a nod to those tempted. “Like, OMG, I so get it! I totes get why you wanna do it! I mean you shouldn’t, y’know, but COME ON?! Who HASN’T thought about it, amirite?!”</sarcasm>

Making statements like this is sure to make you a lot of friends in the city of Austin, I tell ya what.

Hope she gets a visit from the Secret Service.
