Conservative teen says @POTUS blocked him on Twitter.

As an encore to his viral video criticizing President Barack Obama and Ahmed Mohamed, Pearson is back in the headlines for supposedly being blocked by President Obama on Twitter. (Video via YouTube / CJ Pearson) “A White House spokesman just released a statement that says I was lying about being blocked by POTUS. The White House has denied blocking a 13-year-old conservative activist on Twitter after he criticsed Obama’s decision to invite 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed to the White House. “If you think the American people are gonna fall for your little tricks, you’re downright crazy,” he said. “This administration has lied to the American people time and time again.

In February, the Georgia teenager created a YouTube video echoing the sentiments of a speech by former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, challenging Mr. Well I look forward to it.” A reporter for theblaze.com, who has been in contact with Pearson, pointed out Pearson’s twitter account was following President Obama’s account when he was supposedly blocked — something that shouldn’t be possible, according to Twitter. If you loved America, you would call ISIS what it is,” he says, “if you loved America, President Obama, you wouldn’t try to take away what hard-working Americans have worked for their entire lives.” The video garnered more than 2 million views, and it was enough to attract the attention of some of the GOP’s more important leaders. Pearson called this “outrageous.” But one other Twitter user says that when Pearson accused Obama of blocking him, he was still following the President on Twitter. Pearson called the spokesman’s denial “outrageous” and responded by uploading a video blasting the president for allegedly lying about the incident.

Based on how much Pearson has criticized Obama in the past (another video is titled “President Obama: Do you really love America?”), he will surely have more to say about the President’s Twitter account soon. First, Twitter users aren’t permitted to follow accounts that block them, yet Pearson could be seen following Obama’s account moments after making the claim he was blocked. The turmoil surrounding Ahmed’s case has had a harmful effect on the teen, Mr Mohamed said, adding that his son has lost his appetite and is not sleeping well. In response, White House assistant press secretary Frank Benenati tweeted that CJ was wrong – that the @POTUS account has never blocked anyone on Twitter. On Thursday, after this reporter’s tweets about the matter gained online attention, Pearson told TheBlaze that he no longer had the original copy of the screen grab.

After the subsequent piece went live, he said in a Facebook post that he’s moving on from this incident. “I’m not responding to fraudulent attacks on my character by the left nor RINOs,” CJ writes. “My friend sent me the screenshot, since I accessed my account using his phone.
