August 9, 2012 at the Grand Junction High School in Grand Junction, Colorado.
An 8 year old girl with Aspergers Syndrome was denied entry. I don’t believe her condition had anything to do with the decision but I do think this video shows how some Obama fans view him as the messiah.
The girl’s father, Shannon Wenger, arrived at the school with his daughter at 4 p.m., assuming that they had shown up with plenty of time to spare before Obama’s 5:30 p.m. address. But — they were turned away at the door and given little reasoning for the decision, Shannon claims. Obama apparently showed up an hour earlier than expected and the family was purportedly never told that the doors would be closed upon his arrival.
“I thought what a great historic event to take my daughter to and she’ll remember it her whole life,” he said. ”And then we got there and they said nope, sorry. No explanation.”
While being declined entry was disappointing enough, the father is more angry over the fact that at least one other individual was allowed into the door after he and Alana were not.
