Obama in Paris: 'Mass Shootings Don't Happen in Other Countries'

Yes, he just said that:

While giving a press conference in Paris, President Barack Obama told reporters that the mass shootings that plague the United States just never happen in other countries.

“With respect to Planned Parenthood, obviously, my heart goes out to the families of those impacted,” Obama said in response to a reporter’s question. “I mean, I say this every time we’ve got one of these mass shootings; this just doesn’t happen in other countries.”

For those living under a rock, the city of Paris itself was just hit with a series of simultaneous terrorist attacks. The majority of 130 deaths were in mass shooting attacks, where the ISIS-affiliated terrorists attacked public places with automatic rifles. Nearly one hundred people alone were killed in just one mass shooting at the Bataclan theater.

Earlier this year, Paris was also the victim of a terrorist attack targeting the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. The al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorists wielded assault rifles, killing 11 innocent people.

Some video at the link, if you can stomach it as Obama, speaking just before he jetted off to France to save the world, salutes the people of Paris for showing the world “how to stay strong in the face of terrorism.” It’s the brave-Democrat mantra of sheltering in place, rather than fighting your enemies, because fighting back would be rude. Savor as well his fracturing of the French language (“la Plaz de la Repooblic”).

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail has the video of a listless, unengaged, phoning-it-in president offering his usual platitudes and bromides, unleashing the howler that mass shootings don’t happen in other countries, and then going into his canned pitch for “gun control.” The man never misses a chance to bash his own country, does he?
