Gutfeld: Ignoring Cable News Won't Stop ISIS, Mr. President
President Obama's defense of his ISIS strategy, which he laid out in an interview with NPR, reinforces that he doesn't take the threat of terrorism seriously, Greg Gutfeld said on "The Five" today.
During the interview, Obama blamed Americans' concerns about terrorism on the media.
"If you have been watching television for the last month, all you have been seeing, all you have been hearing about is these guys with masks or black flags who are potentially coming to get you," Obama said.
Gutfeld pointed out that Obama doesn't complain about media saturation of mass shootings when it serves his pet cause - gun control.
"But when it comes to terror, he sings a different tune," Gutfeld said. "'Take a chill pill,' he says."
Gutfeld noted a recent headline from The New York Times Digest: "Nation's Fears Overshadow Obama’s Achievements."
"So that’s terror's true evil: That Captain Precious doesn't get his due," Gutfeld remarked. "But it’s too late. Events have shrunk Obama, and his cool words ring as hollow as a dried gourd."
"For now, how does Obama plan to fight a non-state threat seeking to end our world by marrying technology to terror? By turning off cable news. Funny how that got him into trouble in the first place."
