Florida governor: Obama ‘has not called’ after Orlando terrorist attack

by Oliver Darcy  |  published on June 15, 2016

Florida Gov. Rick Scott said on Tuesday that President Barack Obama has not called him after the worst terrorist attack on US soil – which took place in Scott’s home state – since September 11, 2001.

“No. He has not called,” the Republican governor told “Fox & Friends.”

Scott noted that a “staffer has called,” but reiterated that Obama has “not called.”

A lone gunman who pledged allegiance to ISIS carried out the deadliest mass shooting in US history early on Sunday morning when he opened fire at the Pulse nightclub. At least 49 people were killed in the attack.

    Why would the “Muslim” in the white house bother to call the governor to express sympathy for the murders?
    Rx7pj , you are a bit confused, we are talking about a mass murderer, NOT medicare fraud! Perhaps you should get your head out of your own ass!

    If he doesn’t call he bad if he calls he using politics a no win. Maybe the Governor pick up the phone?

    Governor, I have to say you are the best governor that we’ve have had here in Florida . The only thing that POTUS cares about is using this terrorist attack for political reasons. Like going after our second ammendment right. Meanwhile people here, including myself are beyond suffering from this terrible attack. All of those people’s lives taken away from us for no reason. Yes it sucks that POTUS didn’t call you personally. It just goes to show what kind of character he has. You and Pam Bodie are doing a great job for our state. We are all here for each other. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  • Rodney Steward

    He won’t do what’s right, but he’ll pitch a baby fit about Trump getting under his skin, but what do U expect from a Kenyan gutter rat!!

      Racist asshole

        Truth hurts don’t it boy!

    From a practical standpoint, I’m not sure why the president would contact the governor. Maybe we should ask if the governor has contacted local political leaders and what he is doing as the state’s leader.

    There is a real chance to turn people off by grandstanding at a tragedy like this.

    Only goes to show you that he has no feeling for Americans. He spends most of his time trying to find ways to protect and defend Muslims. His childlike and childish behavior has taken over the White House. One of 2 reasons for him not contacting Gov Scott – 1) he feels that if he doesnt make this a big deal, the American people will let it fade away 2) he cannot bring himself to call the Florida Governor because of the stance on gay marriage that he and his Attorney General took – their belief that marriage should be between one man/one woman. You see, Obama has zero tolerance for opinions other than his, and in a childish way, he cannot hide his disdain. His petulance comes out and he has no self-control. This guy and his administration make Nixon look like an amateur. Think Hillary will be any different? If so, please take your head out of the sand.

  • Larry

    Why are you surprised, he has been against the USA and will continue to ignore the American people until he has completely destroyed this great country.


    The reason B’Ob has not made a direct call to Orlando to express his condolences is because he knows his wrongheaded policies are the major cause for this massacre and carnage……B’Ob is a huge embarrassment to this nation…….

  • Dawn

    This is his way, to avoid offending those like him. How rude and crude this
    evil mad man is. Cannot Americans ban together and oust him out of the house and the country? Are people just afraid they might be the next targets?
    You know of how many were killed/ not suicides, by the Clintons, Bozo etc.
    so that they could not talk and tell what they knew. Over 50 i think.

  • teaman

    Governor, that is because Obama, the Executive Anus, is to busy praising his false God Allah.

    • Rx7pj

      Get you head out of Scotts ass

      • teaman

        Get your head out of Obama’s ass!!!!

      • Worried Vet

        Tell me do you think Obama would have called a liberal governor? Let’s say when San Bernardino happened. And talking about medicaid , do you have any idea how much fraud goes on because the bosses won’t stop it? Their keeping to being PC instead of being stewards over tax payer dollars. Bow that’s a reason to be pissed off not because Scott was voted on as gov. This calling names instead of facts is why this country is failing. Charlie freaking Christ changed parties trying to stay in office what about him? They work hard and lie hard to stay in office period no matter what party.
