The New York Times‘ story about President Barack Obama‘s private meeting with news columnists Friday morning was stealthily edited and the following comment was removed. The comment makes Obama look like a fool on first glance.

In his meeting with the columnists, Mr. Obama indicated that he did not see enough cable television to fully appreciate the anxiety after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, and made clear that he plans to step up his public arguments.

How out of touch is this man? He didn’t watch enough TV to know how Americans feel? The truth is actually worse. It says what he thinks of the American people.

Charles Krauthammer nailed it on Special Report Friday.

“’On the story about the meeting with journalists and him saying that this is all hyped up, you know, he didn’t see it on cable. I think I wasn’t there — of course I wasn’t there.

But, to me he was being sarcastic. This is a sort of way of dissing, showing condescension to the rabble out there.

After all, this is an interview he gave January 23rd of this year. Asked ‘Do you think if the media sometimes overstates the level of alarm people should have about terrorism? Barack Obama: Absolutely and I don’t even blame the media for that. What’s the saying? If it bleeds, it leads? You show crime stories on local newscasts, right, because that’s what the folks watch.’

This is Obama essentially saying, well the reason the folks are upset about this is because it’s been hyped up on television, and they are not as cool and as talented and far-seeing as I am. This is his usual professorial condescension. The fact that the Times took it out, I’m not sure if they saw it as straight or as sarcasm.’”

Charles is right on. It was Obama showing what he thinks of Americans. He’s so superior after all. He’s laughing at us.
