Fort Lauderdale, Florida suffered a terrorist attack last week that was cheered by ISIS. The suspect, Esteban Santiago, 26, has been charged with federal crimes and could face the death penalty.
Santiago showed signs of violence and what authorities called “erratic behavior” in the months before they said he traveled 4,000 miles from home, loaded a gun in a baggage area, and killed five people in less than 80 seconds. He was also radicalized and was on the FBI’s terrorist watch list for three years.
Esteban also reported that the CIA was trying to brainwash him into watching ISIS videos. He reported this to the FBI two months before the shooting and they did absolutely nothing to prevent this brain dead jihadi from murdering innocent Americans.
Following this jihadi debacle, one thing remains clear: Obama is no where to be found in all of this. Florida Gov. Rick Scott told reporters that he has not heard from Obama, so he called the one man he knew would help him in his time of need.
Scott said that given that Obama did not offer any help, he reached out to President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence instead of President Obama about federal resources following the deadly shooting at Fort Lauderdale Airport.
“I have reached out to President-elect Trump, and spoken to him and to Vice President-elect (Mike) Pence multiple times to keep them informed, and they told me whatever resources that we need from the federal government, they would do everything in their power to make that happen,” Scott said.

The circumstances mirror recent events where leaders around the country and world are looking to Trump instead of Obama for responses to present and future situations. Yes, Obama is leaving office in eleven days, but it still shows that leaders across the world know that they can trust Trump more than Obama when they need assistance from an ally.
Reporters asked Scott a second time in the interview whether he had spoken with Obama and Scott argued that he has not heard from Obama nor has he tried to speak with him.
A reporter later asked Gov. Scott, “Wouldn’t it be appropriate to call the president for resources?”
“I have a personal relationship with Vice President Pence and President-elect Trump, and I reached out,” Scott responded. Scott also made it clear that Obama’s refusal to reach out was a clear message.
Monitoring the terrible situation in Florida. Just spoke to Governor Scott. Thoughts and prayers for all. Stay safe!

When the “religion of peace” strikes, we know we will never be able to count on Hussein Obama to help us.
Islam is a disease and eradication is the only solution.
