After Airport Attack, Fl Gov Reached Out To Someone Other Than Obama….
You know what, I don’t cafe how incompetent he is. When something horrific like what happened at the airport in Florida happened you put down your damn golf clubs for five minutes and ask what you need.
Then again, being a conservative Rick Scott is used to not getting calls from Obama because Gov Scott has committed the grave sin of not thinking what Obama tells him to think. When death struck the Fort Lauderdale airport Friday, Florida Gov. Rick Scott reached out for help.
However, instead of calling President Barack Obama, he contacted President-elect Donald Trump firs.
“I have reached out to President-elect Trump, and spoken to him and to Vice President-elect (Mike) Pence multiple times to keep them informed, and they told me whatever resources we need from the federal government, they would do everything in their power to make that happen,” Scott said late Friday afternoon.
“I’ve not talked to President Obama,” Scott said then. “No, President Obama has not reached out to me. I have talked to President-elect Trump and Vice President-elect Pence quite a few times.” Scott was then asked by a reporter whether it would have been “appropriate” to call Obama.
“I have a personal relationship with Vice President Pence and President-elect Trump, and I reached out,” Scott replied.
Obama was later briefed on the shooting, in which five people were killed.
Scott’s choice did not please those who took to Twitter to make their feelings known.
