Wednesday on MNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Andrea Mitchell slammed President Obama for failing at the “optics of leadership.”
MSNBC anchor Mitchell said:
The golf course is not the best place to be, even though you don’t really see him out there. But the fundraising, those trips are being questioned for a good reason. You know, the trips last Thursday when the Malaysian airliner was shot down, proceeding to Wilmington and then proceeding on to New York for two fundraisers, that’s all being questioned by people.
She continued “Ronald Reagan is being praised for coming back from California when the Korean airliner was shot down by the Soviets in 1983, but that was only after he was criticized in 1981 for staying on vacation and for having his top aide, Ed Meese, come out and say the president was asleep but he’s always in charge. So they learned their lesson and fixed it the next time around.”
