Normally, when an ambassador is assassinated, or after a major terror event, world leaders change their plans.
But Obama? He does things a little differently.
He had only one thing to say:
That’s right, the President DOES have his priorities, after all.
With the dual breaking news events surrounding potential terrorism and a foreign diplomat being shot to death, White House pool reports showed that President Barack Obama headed to a country club in Hawaii near his rental house, where he is vacationing. –Mediaite
He’s not going to let a triviality like a murdered ambassador spoil his last Presidential vacation. Seriously. The next trip he takes just might be on his OWN dime.
There was an email though.
The first email shows that Obama has directed his staff to keep him updated on the situation in Turkey regarding the assassination of the Russian Ambassador.
From the White House, per Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz:
“This morning the President was briefed by his National Security Team on the assassination of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey in Ankara today. The President directed his team to provide updates as warranted.”
Meanwhile, at 10:10 a.m. in Kailua, the press van prepares to depart the rental house where we’ve been holding.
In a following email, we are informed that Obama is leaving the rental home to go play golf. –http://www.mediaite.com/online/obama-heads-to-golf-course-after-receiving-reports-on-berlin-attack-and-russian-ambassador-death/
Should we REALLY expect ANY class from the guy who…
…takes SELFIES at Nelson Mandela’s FUNERAL?
