This week, six American soldiers were tragically killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan. Obama responded to this sad news the only way he knows how: by playing golf.

According to Breitbart, Obama was on vacation in Hawaii when he was informed of the deaths. Immediately after hearing about the attack, the president headed to the Mid-Pacific Country Club golf course with three friends. While he was playing his precious round of golf, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest announced the suicide bombing to the country:

“We express our deepest condolences to the families of the six U.S. service members killed and to all of those injured in today’s Taliban attack near Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and their loved ones,” the statement read, adding that the United States condemned the “cowardly attack.”

Later that same day, Obama allowed reporters to come watch him play on the course. When he made a chip shot on the 18th hole, Obama raised his arms in triumph and pointed at the reporters, showing that the dead American heroes could not have been further from his mind.
