Remember President Obama’s first public comments on the Trayvon Martin case? Where he pronounced that “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon?”
That statement raised eyebrows among skeptics who viewed it as a message that the shooting of Trayvon Martin somehow bore greater importance because the victim and the President shared similar physical characteristics—namely skin color.
Trey Gowdy, just turned that comment on its ear, calling out Obama in the case of Kate Steinle, a woman who was killed by an illegal immigrant in the ‘sanctuary city’ of San Francisco.
He chided Obama for not sympathizing with the family of Steinle. Gowdy said that anyone with a daughter “saw our daughters in Kate Steinle.”
Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) has called Obama OUT. During a segment of Fox News’ “On the Record,” Gowdy turned the heat onto Obama.
He said “the president said that he saw Trayvon – in Trayvon Martin, he saw his son. Well, I can tell you, those of us who have daughters, we saw our daughters in Kate Steinle. And he’s got two of them too, so at a minimum, he ought to pick up the phone and tell the Steinle family that ‘I grieve for you’.”
BAM. Just like that, Gowdy reminds the nation of the political games Obama plays with the lives of citizens in this nation. He cares when he can make a statement. Gowdy also reminded everybody “the primary focus of government is public safety,” saying it was much, much more important than “winning elections and appealing to certain constituencies.”
Gowdy’s comments begin at about the 6:15 mark in the video below…
The family of Kate Steinle has yet to be contacted by anyone in the Obama administration. Steinle’s brother said they waited weeks for a call from the White House, but are no longer expecting anything.
“It’s just like what happened in Chattanooga,” he said. “You wait four days to lower the flags to half staff. We’ve sat and waited two weeks for our call. It seems as though you need to go out and protest, and people need to be angry in order to get something done.”
Or you need to be an important part of Obama’s racially charged political platform.
Comment: Is Obama not contacting the Steinle family because she doesn’t fit neatly in the President’s racially divisive policies?
