This mortifying embarrassment of a president has said a lot of stupid things over the years regarding corpse-men, 57 states, the Austrian language, bowling in the Special Olympics, etc – but this doozy has to take the cake because the subject matter is so serious and he made the gaffe overseas in front of an international audience.
While giving a press conference in Paris, President Barack Obama told reporters that the mass shootings that plague the United States just never happen in other countries.
“With respect to Planned Parenthood, obviously, my heart goes out to the families of those impacted,” Obama said in response to a reporter’s question. “I mean, I say this every time we’ve got one of these mass shootings; this just doesn’t happen in other countries.”
For those living under a rock, the city of Paris itself was just hit with a series of simultaneous terrorist attacks. The majority of 130 deaths were in mass shooting attacks, where the ISIS-affiliated terrorists attacked public places with automatic rifles. Nearly one hundred people alone were killed in just one mass shooting at the Bataclan theater.
Paris was also the site of the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack earlier this year. Al-Qaeda-affiliated gunmen slaughtered 11 innocent people in that rampage.
Mass shootings just don’t happen in other countries, this assclown says — in a country that has seen two mass shootings, this year.
Unbelievable. It’s Obama’s favorite anti-gun talking point – in the states.
As he stood there at the podium in Paris, you could almost see the gears jamming in his head as he suddenly realized where he was. At that point he paused, and awkwardly shifted to his rote anti-terrorism talking points.
