President Obama failed to even call Florida Gov. Rick Scott in the aftermath of the Orlando shootings. But this should come as no surprise, as I wrote in a piece running today in LifeZette:
Whether it comes to his policies or his use of the phone, Obama, it seems, always makes the wrong call.
Last July, another Islamist terrorist killed four Marines and mortally wounded a Navy sailor in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Cathy Wells, the mother of one of the deceased, 21-year-old Marine Lance Cpl. Skip Wells, was asked on Fox News’ “Hannity” days later whether she had heard from Obama. “No,” she said, though it didn’t faze this brave woman.
“He died for his country, doing what he loved for the love of his country and for his family,” she said. Hannity, for his part, “lamented that the White House went out of its way to put up rainbow-colored lights on the day of the recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of gay marriage, yet cannot pick up the phone to call the five grieving military families,” Fox reported.
Indeed, Obama bothered to make a phone call the day the ruling came down. The president, who just a few years back vocally opposed gay marriage, telephoned the lead plaintiff in the case, Jim Obergefell.
