For the second time after the deadly terrorist attacks in Brussels, Obama has been caught disrespecting the victims in a highly inappropriate moment.
The first came when he decided to attend an exhibition game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban national team in Havana, Cuba on the very same day as the attack. There, he was interviewed by ESPN looking extremely relaxed, like he didn’t have care in the world.
Obama disrespected the victims of the attacks once again on Wednesday night, when he attended a glitzy state dinner in Argentina. There, he was caught on camera dancing a very sensual tango with a sexy young dancer.
According to Western Journalism, Obama was criticized from people on all sides of the political spectrum for his behavior in the aftermath of the attacks.
“At time when we have a crisis, is that the impression that he wants to convey?” Fox News contributor Judge Andrew Napolitano asked Thursday on Fox and Friends.
“He’s a great dancer and maybe he did not want to change his plans, but I’m not so sure he should be doing that, when everyone else is worried about where ISIS is, who they’re going to kill next, and are they going to come over here? Perhaps he should be giving a different impression of strength and preservation of freedom and safety,” the judge added.

“That was a tremendous mistake,” Richard Haass with the Council on Foreign Relations said during an appearance on Morning Joe. “It’s fine to go to Argentina, you want to do the work, but you’ve got to be careful of these little photo ops and optics. Baseball games and tangos, that inconsistent with the seriousness of the day.”
Nicolle Wallace, the former communications director for President George W. Bush, told MSNBC that Obama’s baseball game appearance and tango was a “communications crime.” She went on to say that his actions were “out of step with the entire American public, not just Republicans.”
