President Obama as of Tuesday morning had not called Florida Gov. Rick Scott to discuss an act of terror in Orlando that is also the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.
“A staffer has called, but no, he has not called,” Scott said on Fox News.
How could this possibly be, even for a president as inattentive and uncommunicative and insular as Obama? Isn’t there information that he would want to get, so he can issue directives to his aides? Is he on top of this situation at all or just having a series of meetings and delivering statements for show?
Maybe he is busy booking activities for his three-day excursion out West Friday to a couple of National Parks.
The White House also has refused to share vetting information with Florida on Syrian refugees coming into the state, according to Scott.
