Conservative political pundit, Charles Krauthammer, is well known for his deeply thought out, world view and educated commentary.
But something happened recently that caused him to go off on President Obama, calling him “stupid,” “ridiculous,” and an “embarrassment.”
Krauthammer was analyzing the administration’s recent attempts to censor the 911 transcripts of calls made by the Orlando terrorist, Omar Mateen, in which he pledged his allegiance to ISIS.
He said the President’s attempt to alter or erase history on all matters involving terrorism demonstrates just how “fanatical” he is “in trying to cover up and hide the connection with Islam.”

Tonight on Special Report, Charles Krauthammer explained the Obama Administration and FBI’s pivot in releasing previously redacted transcripts of the Orlando terrorist’s call to 911.
He said that the redacted version, which removed references to Islam, was “stupid,” “ridiculous” and an “embarrassment.”
“Everybody could see what the words underneath were. And what exactly are they accomplishing in pretending they weren’t said?”
Krauthammer said it exposes the administration as “fanatical in trying to cover up and hide the connection with Islam.”

Donald Trump’s leading candidate for vice-president, Newt Gingrich, concurred, calling Obama’s attempts to censor reality “an insult.”
Krauthammer went on to point out the Obama administration has done this sort of thing in the past, citing specifically an incident in which the State Department deleted questioning about Iran negotiations by Fox News reporter James Rosen.
Additionally, the White House went through painstaking efforts to censor the phrase ‘Islamist terrorism’ from video of a meeting with French President François Hollande. They posted an official press video with audio of the words cut out completely. At the time, administration officials tried to claim the censoring was nothing more than an extremely coincidental ‘technical issue.’ Something that in retrospect now seems preposterous.
“The Obama Administration has no respect for historical record, for actual events,” Krauthammer said. “And that’s a larger issue and that’s disturbing.”
