    In a way, it gets harder and harder to feel sorry for New Yorkers who undergo such terrorism as they continue to vote for Dims who continue to not even be able to say the words "Islamic Terrorism", and only want to bring more Syrians into the US.

    You could say they are getting exactly what they deserve

    Here was Obama's reaction to the bombing, or should I say non-reaction.

    President Obama’s motorcade passed through 23rd Street, the location of Saturday night’s bombing, and slept in Manhattan Sunday night — but he still hasn’t made any public remarks on the attack in Chelsea.

    Instead, Obama’s first stop in New York City Sunday night was at the Gramercy Park home of restaurateur Danny Meyer and actress Audrey Meyer to attend a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

    Obama talked about the importance of this election — “the most important election of our lifetime” — and discussed why he believes Clinton is failing to run away with it.

    “[T]his should not be a close election, but it will be,” Obama claimed. “And the reason it will be is not because of Hillary’s flaws, but rather because, structurally, we’ve become a very polarized society. And if all you’re doing is watching Fox News and listening to Rush Limbaugh and reading some of the blogs that are churning out a lot of misinformation on a regular basis, then it’s very hard for you to think that you’re going to vote for somebody who you’ve been told is taking the country in the wrong direction. And so, structurally, we already have these divisions and it’s going to be hard to overcome those.”

    Obama also raised the possibility that sexism has been holding Clinton back.

    “I will also say that there’s a reason why we haven’t had a woman president; that we as a society still grapple with what it means to see powerful women. And it still troubles us in a lot of ways, unfairly, and that expresses itself in all sorts of ways,” Obama claimed.

    Obama has not publicly mentioned the Chelsea blast, the St. Cloud, Minnesota, mall attack Saturday night or the New Jersey bombings during a Marine Corps charity run Saturday.

    After about an hour at the Meyers’ home, Obama headed to the Lotte New York Palace hotel, where he’s staying while attending this year’s United Nations General Assembly.

    Obama has a Democratic fundraiser Monday morning, followed by afternoon meetings with Premier Li Keqiang of China and Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi of Iraq.

    Obama is scheduled to return to Washington, DC, on Wednesday.

    So as we see, all Obama could do was say that the election was going to be closer than it should be and it is all because the American society is polarized, and has nothing to do with the failings within the DNC.

    Hilarious.

    Of course, Obama also mentioned sexism as being the reason Trump was doing so well. After all, Dims can't open their mouths without mentioning bigotry in some form or another. It's their lifes blood.

    That's right Dims, continue to stick your heads in the sand and blame others for your failures in leadership. It seems to be working so why change?

    The White House seems to think that the war against ISIS is nothing more than a war of narratives. Really?

    http://www.mediaite.com/tv/wh-press-secretary-on-war-on-isis-this-is-actually-just-a-war-of-narratives/

    When asked what steps Homeland Security was taking to address the threat of lone wolf and ISIS-inspired attacks in the West in the wake of the weekend’s terror attack, White House press secretary Josh Earnest told the hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe Monday that it was really all just a “war of narratives.”

    Earnest cited new government initiatives to team up with Internet tech companies to shut down outlets that spread ISIL propaganda. “They’re trying to poison the minds of vulnerable individuals. If we can prevent them from trying to do that, we can do that. There has been a stepped up cooperation from technology companies to do that,” he said.

    “The other thing that we can do is work to try to lift up the voices of prominent patriotic Muslims in the United States. There are millions of them!” he continued. “They can speak to the poisonous, empty bankrupt mythology that’s being propagated by ISIL.”

    “In some ways, this is actually just a war of narratives,” he concluded. “We want to get out our counter-narrative against ISIL. And we’re having some progress, we’re making some progress.”

    That’s what concerned Earnest about Donald Trump’s rhetoric, he said. “We can’t give them the narrative victory of suggesting that every Muslim is responsible for this kind of terrorism. We can’t give into this narrative that ISIL wants to build up that the United States is at war with Islam. That is false and not true.”

    Watch above, via MSNBC.

    1 in 5 Syrian immigrants will be settled in New York, and Obama wants more.

    So let's say that only Islamic toddlers were the only problem. Should something be done about them?

    Should the US seek to bring in more toddler immigrants?

    Why come up with a ridiculous hypothetical? Why not just deal with the actual real world problem? Oh yes, because honesty is not something you know how to do.

    Do you worry that toddlers will destroy the city you live in with WMD's?
