This was something I was hoping would be commented on. Kind of weird to read it on an NBC website. From Chicago.
But instead of a somber chief executive offering reassuring words and expressions of sympathy and compassion, viewers saw a wildly disconnected and inappropriately light president making introductory remarks. At the event, a Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian affairs, the president thanked various staffers and offered a “shout-out” to “Dr. Joe Medicine Crow — that Congressional Medal of Honor winner.” Three minutes in, the president spoke about the shooting, in measured and appropriate terms. Who is advising him?
Let’s not add in that “Dr. Joe Medicine Crow” was awarded the Medal of Freedom, not the Medal of Honor. There’s a difference. It’s big.
The executive Dear in the Headlights. Fantastic.
