President Obama appeared on 60 Minutes on Sunday night, and lets just say the interview didn’t go so well for him…
Veteran host Steve Kroft grilled Obama about Syria, slamming him for how he has handled the crisis there as well as how he handled ISIS. A visibly shaken Obama stammered to say that the Syrian crisis has “…been a difficult problem for the entire world’s community,” and that military efforts to help the Syrian people would happen “over time… I didn’t say it was going to be done in a year.”
According to Mediaite, Kroft then pointed out that the problem is only getting worse as millions of refugees flee to Europe. Obama then acknowledged that his administration has not been able to “change the dynamic inside Syria,” but he also added that “we’ve never been under any illusion that militarily we ourselves can solve the problem inside of Syria.”
Kroft became obviously frustrated with Obama during the interview, telling him at one point, “I feel like I’m being filibustered, Mr. President.” Finally, the veteran reporter lost his temper and firmly told Obama, “Somebody, someplace along the line made a serious miscalculation. It’s an embarrassment.”
It was refreshing to see Obama get humiliated on live television like this. We’re glad somebody finally called him out to his face about the fact that he has embarrassed our country with his ridiculous decisions. Shame on you, Obama!
