The Islamic extremist murdered 50 people at a “Pulse” gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
Barack Obama gave a statement at 2 PM EST.
Obama did not mention ISIS, Islam, Islamic State, Islamic extremism or Muslims even though the shooter pledged allegiance to ISIS before the attack.
He did mention “hatred” four times and spoke of gun control.
After his short statement FOX News hosts ripped the president for his mindless pablum.
Former CIA Director James Woolsey: Yet again the president did not pass up an opportunity to say that guns are the problem. And yet again he passed up the opportunity even to allude to the fact that there might be some motivation from some branch of Islam, or jihadist terrorism or jihadi thinking behind what was taking place despite of the fact that the killer was shouting ‘Allahu Akbar.’ The facts don’t seem to matter to this administration.
Sebastian Gorka: I’m very disappointed as an American. This was pablum. This is an exercise in disconnecting the dots about the threat to Americans. He mentioned hatred about four times. Did we talk about hatred when we were facing the Nazis?
