President Barack Obama is dancing and taking in baseball games like he doesn’t have a care in the world, even as the Western world reels from the terror attacks in Brussels, Belgium.

Hours after the attacks that killed over 30 people — including some Americans — President Obama gave the outrageous attack a mere 50 seconds of time in a speech otherwise filled with praise for communist Cuba and condemnation for the U.S.

Only an hour or so later, as Obama enjoyed the day’s event planned by his dictatorial communist hosts, the same president who only had 50 seconds of his time to discuss the attacks in Brussels was seen doing the wave at a Cuban baseball park.

Not long afterward, the press were treated to scenes of the president doing the tango with a lovely Cuban woman.

All this, despite Obama’s claim that defeating ISIS was his “number one priority.”

The optics of this frivolity already brought the president a wave of criticism.

Obama’s seeming disinterest in what happened in Brussels even brought one of the normally liberal women of ABC’s The View to say that the “optics” of seeing Obama do the wave at a communist ballpark was a bad sight for the American people and for the world.
