@BarackObama's #TBT tweet is the best 'Hobby Lobby' snark yet

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would definetly retweet this one. 

In honor of Throwback Thursday, the Internet's sacred weekly holiday, @BarackObama dispatched a tweet that was so snark-filled it could land the president a job as a contributor at Gawker. In reference to Monday's Supreme Court ruling on Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, @BarackObama tweeted:

Fully comitted to his sharp jab at the court's ruling that private companies don't have to provide contraceptive coverage to their employees, as stated in the Obamacare mandate, @BarackObama included a mocked-up photo that lampoons the archtypal imagery contraceptive companies use in marketing birthcontrol and contraceptives towards women.

To be clear—because it's totally not clear—tweets posted to the @BarackObama Twitter account are rarely written by the president himself. Instead, the account is run by Organizing for America, a non-profit that took it over after President Obama's 2012 reelection campaign. Any tweets written by Obama are signed "-bo," according the account's bio—though that almost never happens.

Regardless, we know if Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who opposed the court's male-dominated majority opinion in Hobby Lobby, was on Twitter, she'd definetly retweet.  After all, 140 characters stings quicker than a 19 page dissent.

In most Supreme Court cases, the majority opinion gets infinitely more attention than the dissenting one. However, the dissent penned by Ruth Bader Ginsburg in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby is not most opinions.
