No Call By Obama for Peace After Milwaukee Anti-Police Riot; Press Fails to Question Golfing Obama About Riot

The vacationing President Barack Obama has issued no statement on the riot in Milwaukee Saturday night over the fatal police shooting of an armed Black criminal–not even a call for peace while the shooting is investigated.

The rioting left four officers wounded and caused Gov. Scott Walker to activate the National Guard in case of further riotimg.

Instead, Obama went golfing Sunday on Martha’s Vineyard where he is taking his annual two-week summer vacation. The traveling White House issued a statement that Obama had been briefed on the riot by senior adviser Valerie Jarrett who was in contact with officials in Milwaukee on behalf of the president–but no statement calling for peace was included in the White House announcement.

“.@POTUS has been updated on #Milwaukee developments. #news3”

The media was given a vantage point to film Obama at one point on the course.

“Pres Obama at the wheel of his golf cart today at Farm Neck Golf Club on MV”

“Later, Pres Obama seen hitting his ball out of a sand trap – then using a rake to erase his visit.”

Video posted by ABC News shows the obsequious press laughingly engaging Obama about his golf game but not one reporter is heard shouting a question about yet another American city in flames over anti-police riots by Black Lives Matter protesters, even though Obama has welcomed leaders of the movement to the White House and is heavily involved in anti-police politics through his words and government policies.

“.@POTUS jokes around as his golf partners search for their golf balls in the rough: “Neither of them are mine!””

Pres. Obama Jokes With Golf Buddies at Martha’s Vineyard
President Obama is the only one of his foursome, which includes former NBA star Alonzo Mourning, to hit the fairway during a round at Martha’s Vineyard.

The media also treated it as a joke with a pool report Haiku.

“White House pool report haiku:
Obama golfing
Cy Walker and Mercer Cook
At Farm Neck Golf Club”

“Pres Obama’s golf partners today again include retired NBA star Alonzo Mourning. Also Mercer Cook III and Cy Walker, cousins of @vj44.” (Valerie Jarrett.)

Curiously, with the expception of the photos by Mark Knoller and the brioef video clip by ABC, the media is not posting photos or video of Obama’s Sunday golf game.

A civilian posted a photo of Obama golfing, however.

“My moms in Marthas Vinyard watching obama golf lol”
