During a press conference from the White House which was supposed to be about the French President’s visit following the horrific Paris attacks by ISIS, Obama chose to talk about himself, his wife, and then followed it up with several clangers and further mind boggling statements.
Instead of concentrating on the 129+ victims of the attacks, or the French people, or French President Francois Hollande, Obama instead related a non-story about how he went to Paris once and tongued his wife:
“By my bed in the residence is a picture of me and Michelle in Luxembourg Gardens. Kissing. Those are the memories we have of Paris.” he stated, even adding in a ‘joke’ about his hair; “it was early on, I had no gray hair.”
You can almost hear the Tumbleweeds blowing through.
In addition to the fact that Obama didn’t even bother to go to Paris, unlike other world leaders, and made the French president come to him, he also made matters even worse by mis-quoting the words inscribed on the Statue of Liberty – a gift from France to the US.
Obama noted that Lady Liberty bears an inscription of “words we know so well.”
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free,”
The inscription actually reads “masses yearning to breathe free.”
The clown show didn’t end there. Obama went on to lecture Americans about ‘Islamophobia’ and called for more Syrian refugees to be brought into America.
What diplomacy, what leadership.
Obama then claimed that the upcoming conference on climate change in Paris will be a “powerful rebuke” to the terrorists:
Huh? How so?

The bumbling embarrassing display follows an incident last week when Obama arrived late into the middle of a moment of silence during the G-20 conference in Turkey. Previous to the Paris attacks, the President had also claimed that ISIS was “contained”.
In reality, the worldwide number of annual terrorist deaths has more than quadrupled since Obama was inaugurated in January 2009.
The President’s approval rating has tanked in the wake of the Paris attacks with just 36% of Likely U.S. Voters giving Obama good or excellent marks for his actions following the attacks. A plurality (45%) rated his response as poor.
