Krauthammer Rips Earnest: Is There a 'Gun Control Cult' Running the White House?
Charles Krauthammer expressed his amazement on "The Kelly File" about the White House continuing to use the California terror attack to push for stricter gun laws.
Referring to the spike in gun sales after defenseless office workers were murdered by jihadists in San Bernardino, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest called it "tragic" that Americans are legally obtaining firearms.
He was also asked whether President Obama has any plans to visit San Bernardino. Earnest said he wasn't sure yet, but that it's not uncommon for Obama to visit communities "touched by incidents of gun violence."
Krauthammer said at this point, these statements "make you wonder if there's a gun control cult in control of the White House."
He said it's now become obvious and "undeniable" that the attack was an act of terrorism. Krauthammer said the rise of Donald Trump can be partly attributed to his willingness to "say what the president refuses to say."
Krauthammer said when Obama came into office, he abolished the use of the term "global war on terror" and during his seven years in office has tried to "wish away" the terror threat.
He added that in the case of the San Bernardino terrorists, we're hearing about the same issues about missed clues that we heard about after 9/11.
