In his final 45 days in office, President Barack Obama is finishing out his presidency on the lowest note he can, especially with a stop at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida. While delivering his last national security speech, he slipped in a sick joke to our troops who were rightfully insulted by what he said and responded with a nasty surprise he wasn’t expecting.
Obama must have forgotten who he was talking to when he stood before a room filled with 20 service members who were unamused with what he had to say about the heroic job they do for our country. Despite that there are soldiers currently risking their lives fighting terrorism and thousands who have been killed in combat in the process, Obama lied as he bragged about going two terms without an attack on our homeland.
According to Biz Pac Review, Barack Obama had the audacity to say in his speech to these heroes, “We should take great pride in the progress we’ve made over the last eight years.” He continued his insulting comments by saying, “No foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland.”
He paused for applause for this “accomplishment,” which was a complete lie. There have been three deadly attacks in just the last year in San Bernardino, California; Orlando, Florida; and most recently, Ohio State University which the Islamic State took credit for.
Among the 20 soldiers in the room, only three humored him with a soft clap, while the others sat in silence with their hands in their lap, stoically starting back at this bold-faced liar. Arrogant Obama wasn’t expecting anything less than the false congratulations he constantly gets for unearned accomplishments, but these men who have seen the realities of war against our very real enemies who were allowed into this country by our president weren’t going to let him get away with this false statement.
There have been multiple attacks since 2009 while he was in office, as the Daily Wire listed out. He can take credit for these since he allowed droves of Muslims “refugees” into our country, the terrorist at Ohio State being one of them. His complete dishonesty in this statement just goes to show how little respect he has for the brave men and women who fight to protect our nation from terrorists — whether he thinks the enemies are real or not. Perhaps he should suit up and see for himself.
