Evidently the ridiculous “Adorable Care Act” tweets were a bomb for the Obama White House. A day after they emerged, the administration is claiming, “Hey, we didn’t make those silly things!”

It would have been a clever move for the White House or Organizing for Action to turn to cute animals and social media to try to draw attention to the start of the Affordable Care Act’s registration period.

But both deny having any connection to the Adorable Care Act accounts on Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook that caught the attention of the political press — and the White House — on Thursday.

“The ‘Adorable Care Act’ Twitter and Tumblr accounts are not run by the White House,” a White House official told POLITICO. “On social media channels, the White House highlights content from outside individuals, groups and organizations. The Adorable Care Act was highlighted by official White House channels as a creative way to raise awareness around the Affordable Care Act and HealthCare.gov.”

Heh. Also, pathetic. The defense sounds every bit as childish as the original tweets.

There’s really no reason whatsoever to trust the White House on this, given how many brazen lies President Obama keeps deploying in defense of Obamacare.

Can't get a dot GOV domain if you aren't a government entity, correct? More tax payer dollars used to promote something more than half the country doesn't want.

"Deplorable Care Act" would be more accurate.
