How Ironic: The Day Obama Claims to Bury The Last Remnant of The Cold War, ISIS Attacks the Capital of Europe

During his speech in Havana, President Obama proclaimed, "I have come here to bury the last remnant of the Cold War  The juxtaposition of Obama speaking with the chaos in Brussels demonstrated just how disconnected he is with the real world. The disconnection was further reinforced with his presence at a MLB exhibition game between the Cuban National Team and the Tampa Bay Rays complete with bromancing Derek Jeter and doing the wave with Raul Castro. I suppose we should be thankful that Havana isn't abundant with golf courses.
This trip to Cuba & his legitimization of the Castros speaks a great deal about Obama's priorities. This is bad enough as an exercise in vanity, but's even worse when ISIS is actively murdering civilians on American soil and on the soil of our allies & all Obama can say is that ISIS isn't Islamic. For better or for worse, it's the sort of thing that makes people turn to Donald Trump. - Aaron Goldstein, The Spectacle
