President Barack Obama held his end-of-year press conference before jetting off to Hawaii for a 17-day Christmas vacation. In it he said Sony “made a mistake” cancelling the release of the movie “The Interview,” after a cyber-attack on the company’s computer system by North Korea, and stated the U.S. will respond “proportionately.”
Proportionately — in this case means — “We have no plans, yet.”
“I think it says something interesting about North Korea that they decided to have the state mount an all-out assault on a movie studio because of a satirical movie starring Seth Rogen and James Flacco,” Obama said. “I love Seth, and I love James. But the notion that that was a threat to them gives you some sense, I think, of the kind of regime we’re talking about here.”
James Flacco? It’s James Falco, Mr. President.
Obama also talked about his decision this week to restore diplomatic relations with the communist government of Cuba. However, he side-stepped all the looting and rioting that’s taken place as he touched on race relations, calling what happened in Ferguson, New York and elsewhere a “healthy conversation.”
Evidently Obama’s idea of a ‘healthy conversation’ consists of violent riots, looting, arson and the murder of police.
