Maine state Sen. Michael Willette (R) shared an Internet meme implying that President Obama was related to ISIS on his Facebook page on March 1.
According to the Press Herald, Willette reposted the meme from Conservative News Daily.
The meme included a picture of President Obama and the caption: "Why haven’t I done anything about ISIS? Because I’ll deal with them at the family reunion."
Along with the meme, Willette wrote: "I’ve been very good over the last year and a half about not posting things about Obama, but this one was too good to pass up. I promise this will be the last one for some time."
Contrary to the meme, President Obama has been ordering bombing campaigns against ISIS for months.
Willette took down the posting, and said in a statement: "I apologize for posting this on Facebook. Like too many people these days, I fell into the trap of posting something first and then thinking later. It was an error in judgment."
