COLUMN: Obama’s Inability to Acknowledge Terrorism Helps Donald Trump


Obama, and to an extent Hillary as well, doesn’t seem to realize that his inability to even name our terrorism problem is part of what gave rise to Donald Trump.

It’s still helping Trump to this day.

Michael Goodwin writes at the New York Post:

Obama won’t acknowledge terrorism — and it’s great news for Trump

Poor President Obama. He had a perfect plan — to use his final UN speech Tuesday to secure his reputation for putting Globalism First. He would preen to the assembled autocrats and bureaucrats about forcing America to take in a record number of refugees, and blast Donald Trump for putting America First.

Hillary Clinton also had a perfect plan. She would keep attacking Trump and his supporters as dangerous and deplorable in hopes that she could scare her way into the White House. With Obama playing the race card to help her with black voters, Clinton would wrap her arms ever more tightly around the president and his policies between now and November.

But terrorist bombings and stabbings are great disrupters, especially when they involve both New York and the heartland in a single weekend. The disruption becomes unbearable when the attacks allegedly are carried out by foreign-born Muslims who were welcomed here with open arms, then turned on their generous American hosts.

Events have a voice and a vote, and the terrorism in Minnesota, New Jersey and New York is scrambling the presidential campaign. It also revealed Mayor Putz to be a horse’s ass as he twisted himself into a pretzel to deny calling the Manhattan bomb a bomb and terrorism terrorism. New Yorkers know that when a bomb goes off on a public street and another one is disarmed nearby, it’s terrorism, stupid.

Read the rest here.

The first debate is next week.

Watch Hillary walk right into this wall during the event, insisting that it’s not as bad as Trump says.
