It should come as no surprise to anyone witnessing this president’s response that he lacks that ability to truly empathize or simply identify and feel compassion with those who have sacrificed their lives while performing their duty.

And so once again another American hero comes home in a flag draped coffin, to the sounds of silence, as White House press secretary Josh Earnest stepped out to the podium for the standard morning’s first press briefing, and made no mention of the tragic death of Navy SEAL Charlie Keating IV, who was killed in Iraq, in a firefight with ISIS forces.

Moreover Earnest seemed more than willing to say nothing about the death of Keating until a journalist prodded him about the death.

Which apparently forced Earnest to say; “I can tell you the president has been briefed on this incident, and everyone here at the White House, including the first family, extends our condolences to the family of the service member that was killed today in northern Iraq,” Earnest then said.

He added, “This individual was the third U.S service member killed in action since the beginning of Operation Inherent Resolve, and this service member’s death reminds us of the risks our brave men and women in uniform face every single day.”

No doubt after almost 8-years of witnessing Obama’s cool, detached almost callous approach when responding to the death of a hostage or service member, that perhaps silence is a far better approach, then his disingenuous blather.
