Animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has criticized US President Barack Obama for swatting a fly on television.
In an interview with CNBC Tuesday, the fly show no respect to the commander in chief, nor was any returned when Obama killed the fly in one smack.
PETA has sent Obama a “humane” bug catcher that allows users to trap a fly then release it outside. A PETA spokesperson said that I” guess it can’t be said that President Obama wouldn’t hurt a fly” and that the incident proves that Obama “isn’t the Buddha, he’s a human being, and human beings have a long way to go before they thik before they act.”
