“A strong leader leads by example!” “Obama’s nothing but a big wuss!” “Obama’s terrified wussiness will embolden our enemies!” Okay then, Conservative Propaganda Media…we’ll take that challenge. So, how much do you think our enemies will be emboldened by the terrified wuss who just hugged a woman that just last week had KILLER ZOMBIE OUTBREAK EBOLA?!
Actually, it didn’t take any great act of bravery (OK, maybe a little) for the President to invite Nina Pham into the Oval Office for a hug. On Friday morning, just the day before she went to the White House, Texas Nurse and Ebola Patient One was released from the Bethesda, Maryland facility where she’d been undergoing treatment and monitoring for the last 13 days. She was completely cleared and determined to be virus-free on Friday, just before meeting the President. Which, judging by the look on her face, must have been at least her second happiest moment this week.
“I feel fortunate and blessed to be standing here today. I know that it may be awhile before I have my strength back so with gratitude and respect … I ask for my privacy and my family’s privacy.”
No, it didn’t take any great act of bravery for the lil Muslim Sissy-Boy to hug someone who most Fox viewers would lock out of their HAZMAT-rated bunkers. Really, it just took a slightly solid grasp of reality and risk. Try that sometime, Fox…it’d be a nice break from the usual terror-mongering.
