A half hour? That might cut into his busy schedule of fundraisers followed by fundraisers followed by partying and golf. Aren’t we asking too much of this man to expect him to devote 30 minutes to his latest scandal?
Rep. Henry Cuellar (D., Texas) continued to call on President Obama to visit the site of the U.S. southern border crisis Tuesday on The Kelly File, saying it would take no more than 30 to 45 minutes of his time and would demonstrate leadership.
Cuellar previously said he hoped this would not become Obama’s “Katrina moment.” Obama is scheduled to attend fundraisers in Texas this week but the White House repeatedly stated he would not visit the site of the border crisis.
“I understand, he’s doing fundraising, and I thank him as a Democrat for doing that, but he can get on Air Force One right after the last fundraiser, go down to the border, take half an hour, 45 minutes at most to fly down there, and then go see the situation,” he said. “I think that is going to be very important.”
Dude, it’s just not high on his priority list, but thanks for caring.
