Are You Kidding Me!!! The Consoler in Chief Barack Obama … “We’ll Be There for Folks of ‘Monroe’ Oklahoma”
Because the Consoler in Chief cares so much for those “RED” States …
Yesterday, while trying to hide from the three scandals that plague his presidency, at a speech in New Jersey (photo-op), President Barack Obama told a New Jersey crowd that the government would be there for the “folks in Monroe, Oklahoma after the devastation of last week.” His exact words were, “We’ll Be There for Folks of Monroe, Oklahoma.” How nice that he would remember the people of Monroe, OK, just two days after he visited the disastrous devastation following the tornadoes that ripped through leaving death and destruction in its wake. WHAT? Wait a minute, did Obama say MONROE? You mean Monroe, OK was hit by an F5 tornado too?
Obama, the Consoler in Chief who pretends to care actually got the city wrong. ITS MOORE, OKLAHOMA YOU IDIOT!!! How on Earth, just two days after you visited MOORE, OK do you forget the name of the town that was just devastated by an F5 tornado? Seriously, do you care so little? Did it have so little of an impact on you that it took you just two days to forget? I mean really, you can see that Obama is using teleprompters which means he is looking at the words Moore, Oklahoma and still saying Monroe. UNREAL!!!
“We’ll Be There for Folks of ‘Monroe’ Oklahoma”
Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
President Obama said the government would be there for the “folks in Monroe, Oklahoma after the devastation of last week” during his address on the Jersey Shore Tuesday afternoon, making him the second Democrat Tuesday to call Moore, the city crushed by a tornado May 20, by the same incorrect name.
