While devoting just 30 seconds to the horrific terror attack in Munich described earlier, Barack Obama took time out from his prepared remarks to inject a little levity into his announcement. You read that right. The president of the United States, while addressing a shooting that claimed nine lives (up from the “several” reported earlier) cracked a joke.
It wasn’t a “guy goes into a bar” type knee-slapper but more of a personal musing on his daughters reaching ages where they are leaving home for school. It was still grossly inappropriate. In spite of that, the lapdog media at the presser chuckled along with him.
So here is man who goes from crocodile tears on one tragic occasion involving violence against innocents to sh*ts and giggles on another.
A post at Young Conservatives said Twitter users noticed the joke, and they weren’t too amused:
Laugh and joke when six confirmed dead. Idiot!

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Wrong time to joke around. Very inappropriate.

“Liberals obviously don’t care about this kind of stuff but Obama continues to alienate every single person that takes these kind of attacks seriously,” Andrew Mark Miller wrote.
The criticism was also heavy on YouTube.
“What the hell? This man is supposed to be a responsible head of state, yet he acts like a bloody dipstick. He is an insult to America,” one person said.
“That’s pretty low for him to crack a joke,” said another.
Apparently, Obama failed to realize that there are people in Germany who may never see their loved ones again.
And as we noted earlier today, there are some right here in the U.S. who have loved ones in Munich.
There’s still a lot about this attack we don’t know yet, and details are still coming in.
While it’s good Obama addressed the attack, his “joke” demonstrated his complete indifference to those with loved ones in harm’s way.
