President Obama had a public snafoo that made many people upset during the Pentagon 9/11 remembrance service. Whold Hillary Clinton has maintained media popularity due to her bout with pneumonia that forced her to leave a 9/11 service early President Obama also behaved in a questionable way.
The Daily Caller reported,
“A moment of silence remembering the September 11 victims at a Pentagon memorial service began early in order to accommodate a restless President Obama, a Department of Defense official told The Daily Caller. A source close to the situation told TheDC that Obama arrived early to the memorial service — which took place at the Pentagon — and wanted to get things started early.
A Department of Defense official confirmed that the moment of silence was moved up a few minutes and that Obama was the one who made the decision, saying the president “moved early.” The moment of silence was originally slotted to take place at 9:37 AM — the time at which the Pentagon was attacked on September 11 — but ended up taking place a few minutes early.
After the moment of silence, President Obama gave a speech about the need to honor the 3,000 victims of September 11. “The question before us, as always, is: How do we preserve the legacy of those we lost? How do we live up to their example? And how do we keep their spirit alive in our own hearts?” the president said.”
Some of the responses to President Obama were as follows,
“Cheryl Curb: Feeling a little guilty perhaps?
Danette Kientz: Oh give him a break, I’m sure he had a tee time waiting!
Trish Grimm Vanlandingham: Once again, another reason we all can’t wait for him to get out…
Mary Fougner: A small gesture of disrespect allowing him to be in control and indulge his narcissism. It’s all about him! Grabbing his “me time” as much as he can. I thought he might be sending flowers to Hillary due to her recent health issue, but nixed that because he’s his own favorite sweetheart!
Clearly some are very unhappy.
