Clock Kid celebrated by President for bringing bomb like clock to school

President Obama welcomed Ahmed Mohamed at the White House for a night honoring astronomy. Instead of Ahmed getting suspended for bringing a device that looked like a bomb to school, He is celebrated by the President. If this doesn’t tell Us everything We need to know about the President, I am not sure what will. The commotion that this Kid caused bringing a homemade clock to school deserved punishment. The school did not ask Kids to bring a homemade clock to school so No One was expecting it so of course they thought it was a bomb, it looks just like one.
So was this a ploy from the beginning to get national attention? Was the teacher in on it? The principle? Did they all fool the President? Or just the American People? Was it a experiment to see what the name Ahmed Mohamed could do to the media? I think so, and it worked.
