President Obama was in Charleston today to eulogize Rev. Clementa Pinckney, one of the nine people slain in the Charleston massacre. Well, that’s what he was ostensibly there for. It didn’t take long for the occasion to change direction:
And yet, more talk is exactly what he’s giving us. For he cannot resist the siren song of his own voice.
But don’t worry. He knows what God wants: gun control.
You know what we see? We see a man whose messiah complex is so strong, that he’s found a way to turn a funeral into a pander-fest.
Yeah, that’s definitely not what we saw today.
Par for President Putt-Putt’s course.
Editor’s note: Rev. Pinckney’s name was initially misspelled in the title. We’ve corrected the typo and apologize for the error.
