Fox’s Erick Erickson: I Get Why People Think Obama’s a ‘Closet Muslim Jihadi Sympathizer’
Fox News contributor Erick Erickson used his radio show Thursday afternoon to make it clear that he does not believe President Barack Obama is a “closet Muslim jihadi sympathizer.” But after watching the president’s press conference earlier today, he said now understands “why so many of you think he is.”
“I don’t believe Barack Obama is a closet Muslim jihadi sympathizer,” Erickson said, laughing to himself.
“But I now – today, after this press conference — totally understand why so many of you think he is.”
In case not enough people heard Erickson’s comments on the radio, he also posted them to Twitter:
I don’t think President Obama is a closet muslim jihadist sympathizer, but after that press conference I understand why so many do.

For the record, President Obama also said in his statement Thursday that ISIS is a “cancer” that “represents the very worst elements in the region.”
