The only thing louder than the media coverage surrounding the bombs in New Jersey and New York, and the stabbings in Minnesota, is the silence coming out of the White House.
President Obama’s motorcade passed through 23rd Street, the location of Saturday night’s bombing, and slept in Manhattan Sunday night — but he still hasn’t made any public remarks on the attack in Chelsea.
Instead, Obama’s first stop in New York City Sunday night was at the Gramercy Park home of restaurateur Danny Meyer and actress Audrey Meyer to attend a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Obama talked about the importance of this election — “the most important election of our lifetime” — and discussed why he believes Clinton is failing to run away with it.
…Obama has not publicly mentioned the Chelsea blast, the St. Cloud, Minnesota, mall attack Saturday night or the New Jersey bombings during a Marine Corps charity run Saturday.
Obama’s silence tells you everything you need to know about his priorities. We have an absentee president who cares more about winning elections for the Democrats than he does protecting the American public.
You can be sure, Hillary Clinton will only be a continuation of these warped values.
