Twitter erupted with digital eye-rolls at Obama’s curt mention of the ‘tragedy’ that the Ukrainian government quickly called a ‘criminal case’
” President Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. on Thursday by casually devoting less than a minute to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner, as he began an often jokey 16-minute speech about the need to expand America’s transportation infrastructure.
There are no confirmed American dead, although it was feared around the time the president made his remarks that as many as 23 U.S. citizens had perished.
Obama declared in Wilmington, Delaware that ‘it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy,’ but not before enthusiastically declaring that ‘it is wonderful to be back in Delaware.’ “
This is what passes for leadership in today’s America … mores the pity .
