It should go without saying that the time to crack a joke and laugh is not when you are talking about a mass shooting. That, however, is exactly what President Obama did on Friday when discussing the possible terror attack in Munich, Germany, that killed at least nine people.
“Obviously our hearts go out to those who may have been injured, it’s still an active situation and Germany is one of our closest allies, so we are going to pledge all the support that they may need in dealing with these circumstances,” he told the press.
“It’s a good reminder of something that I’ve said over the last couple of weeks, which is our way of life, our freedoms, our ability to go about our business every day, raising our kids and seeing them grow up, and graduate from high school and now about to leave their dad,” he said to raucous laughter.
“I’m sorry I’m getting a little too personal,” he said smiling. “Getting a little too personal there. That depends on law enforcement.”
