Judge Jeanine Pirro has been an ardent critic of president obama for years. But Obama’s remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast, which the president’s most reliable defenders claim is a non-controversy, has her seeing the president’s behavior during America’s war with Islamic terrorists in a whole new light.
Here is how Pirro made her opening statement:
“You know I’ve been watching this president for six years. And after this week’s prayer breakfast, it all came together. It finally made sense to me, Barack Obama is comfortable with extremism. He’s okay with it. He’s nonplussed. It’s part of what happens.
It explains why he goes golfing within minutes of announcing the beheading of an American. It explains why he didn’t join 40 world leaders in France to denounce ‘Islamic terrorism.’
It explains why he doesn’t attend certain funerals. Why he does nothing about the wholesale slaughter of Christians in the Middle East. Or the raping, beheading, crucifying and burying alive of children there. Why he doesn’t get excited about people who cross his ‘red lines.’ And it explains why he so easily pivots to healthcare after announcing the burning alive of a coalition pilot.”
For some context, the president’s controversial remarks came just two days after a video showed the Islamic State burning captured Jordanian pilot Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh. This is the president’s line that is drawing attention:
“Lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.”
Judge Jeanine Pirro interprets these remarks to mean the president is generally nonplussed about Islamic extremism – it doesn’t really perturb him. The Judge then gives numerous examples of how the president’s inexplicable behavior following terrorist attacks can now be seen in an entirely new light.
Whether or not one agrees with the entirety of Pirro’s remarks, one thing is clear: approximately 70% of Americans lack confidence in the president’s ability to take on ISIS terrorists, while only 38% of approve of his handling of foreign policy in general.
The president appearing emotionally detached following terror attacks – even making equivocations to medieval Christian atrocities carried out centuries ago – is unlikely to change that perception.
