President Barack Obama golfed after being briefed on the ambush killing of two NYPD cops, according to pool reports.
“The President has been briefed on the Brooklyn police shooting. White House officials continue to monitor the situation,” a White House official told The Wall Street Journal’s Carol Lee.
Obama endured harsh criticism for golfing minutes after issuing a statement on the beheading of James Foley at the hands of Muslim militants in September.
“You know, it is always a challenge when you’re supposed to be on vacation because you’re followed everywhere. There’s always going to be some tough news somewhere,” Obama said. “I should have anticipated the optics.”
