Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” former White House communications director during the President George W. Bush administration Nicolle Wallace said President Barack Obama has been a “jerk” for his accusatory tone aimed at those concerned about the possibility of a terror attack in America in the wake of the French terror attacks earlier this month.
Wallace said, “He’s a father. I don’t understand why he can’t look into the camera and say, ‘If you’ve got kids traveling home for the holidays, I understand you might be afraid to put them on an airplane. You don’t have to be and here’s why.’ I don’t understand why he can’t tap into his own humanity! He musters more of it about saving the planet than he does talking about keeping kids safe around this time of year when people are traveling. People are scared and that’s not a partisan issue. He’s been incapable for a nano second since the Paris attacks of speaking to the country as a human being about the fact that they’re scared. He’s reduced any rational fear. People don’t understand the refugee program and people don’t understand how exhausted the vetting is. He would blame anyone afraid. He called them cowards and said you’re afraid of orphans and women. He’s been a jerk.”
