Conservatives claim Obama fake-cried about Sandy Hook while announcing his executive order on guns.

It may have appeared that President Barack Obama wept when the murder of 20 first-graders came up during his announcement of an executive order on gun control today, but some conservatives want you to look again. 

In a Fox segment following Obama’s speech, Fox News host Andrea Tantaros remarked that she “would check that podium for like a raw onion or some No More Tears. ... It’s not really believable. And the award goes to … we are in awards season.” Her co-host Meghan McCain agreed, claiming Obama’s emotions did not seem “authentic.”

Meanwhile on Twitter, John Nolte, who is listed as an editor-at-large at, suggested Obama had intentionally generated the tears by introducing a foreign substance into his eyes during his speech. 

Alternatively, some conservatives have suggested Obama was genuinely crying, but tears of rage at the American patriots who will not relinquish their guns. Others seem to believe Obama finds the murder of children sad, but one has to hear all sides.
