When President Barack Obama delivered a speech Tuesday from the White House about the terror attack that had occurred in Orlando early Sunday morning, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump noticed something rather odd.
“I would have been very happy had Obama been a great president,” the billionaire candidate said later that afternoon at a campaign rally in Greensboro, North Carolina. “He’s been one hell of a lousy president. He’s done a terrible job. What’s happening to our country is devastating and embarrassing and our lives will never be the same.”
“I watched President Obama today and he was more angry at me than the shooter,” Trump explained, according to The Hill. “The level of anger — that’s the kind of anger he should have for the shooter and these killers that shouldn’t be here.”
The president did indeed spend more time castigating Republicans and their presumptive nominee than he did talking about Omar Mateen, the radical Islamist responsible for killing 49 people at the Pulse Nightclub.
Obama also said absolutely nothing about the victims. If anything, he tried to peddle a phony narrative about how Muslims were the real victims and must be protected from evil Islamophobes like Donald Trump.
“Are we going to start treating all Muslim-Americans differently?” Obama asked during his speech. “Are we going to start subjecting them to special surveillance? Are we going to start to discriminate against them, because of their faith?”
He just doesn’t get it. Republicans want to surveil radical mosques and enact tougher screening procedures to prevent Islamist extremists from immigrating to America. Why? Because, as Trump noted during the rally, “We have a radical Islamic terrorism problem.”
But instead Obama thinks we have a problem with bigotry and Islamophobia, as if the desire to protect Americans from radical Islam makes Republicans just as bad as the Islamists who want to kill all us.
The guy lives in a fantasy world, and it is because of his fantastical ideas that Trump was inspired to enter the presidential race in the first place.
