Laura Ingraham Disturbed By Obama’s ‘Tone-Deafness’ In Drinking Guinness During Missouri Devastation

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Laura Ingraham appeared on 'Fox & Friends' and suggested “I don’t want to make too much of this,” before expressing her unhappiness with President Obama’s European tour and how he took the time to enjoy drinking a Guinness in Ireland. Ingraham wondered “what would the liberal press be saying if this were President Bush” not being sensitive to a natural disaster at home?

Laura Ingraham: “I do think of the disconnect and maybe the tone-deafness, if you will, of that devastation from Missouri. Heart-breaking pictures and then President Obama lifting the glass of Guinness. There’s something about that, that I think hits people in the gut. . . . Maybe the Irish part of the trip could have been put off to another day.”
