Want more proof we’re living in The Matrix, America? Check out our president. The guy can’t even muster up the effort to PRETEND anymore.
Media outlets everywhere yesterday were reporting that a Malaysian passenger flight was shot down by a missile over war-torn Ukraine, and the Ukrainian president called it an act of terror. Reportedly, 23 Americans were on that flight and there were no survivors.
So what did Obama do? How did he react to the news?
Well, we know what he didn’t do — and that’s cancel his burger photo op. See video below.
Here’s a sampling:
Dear White House, today isn't the best day for your burger photo op. In case you haven't seen the news, Americans are dead in Ukraine.

Townhall’s political editor:
"Mr. President, 23 Americans appear to have been murdered in the Ukraine conflict. Perhaps we should cut short this burger photo op."

Some advice from Hot Air’s associate editor:
Obama should really get that to go.

And here I thought Obama said he wouldn’t go visit the border as this immigration crisis continues to unfold — while he was already here in Texas, by the way — because he wasn’t interested in photo ops…
Oh that’s right. He did say that.
