Before jetting off to Hawaii for a few weeks, the “president” agreed to yet another softball interview, and blamed the media for the country’s ISIS concerns. Yeah, it’s the media, not the actual terror attacks.
President Obama said in an interview broadcast early Monday that he understands why Americans are worried about the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), adding that it is important “to keep things in perspective.”
“This is not an organization that can destroy the United States,” he told NPR. “This is not a huge industrial power that can pose great risks to us institutionally or in a systematic way. But they can hurt us, and they can hurt our people and our families.”
Obama blamed the media in part for fears, saying that in the past month “all you have been seeing, all you have been hearing about is these guys with masks or black flags who are potentially coming to get you.”
Excuse me, Captain James T. Jerk; they came to get Parisians, and they came to get people in San Bernadino. And spoiler alert: they did both in less than three weeks, but you were too busy watching ESPN to notice.
I swear, this f**king guy is as useless as an ejection seat on a helicopter.
