W.H. Defends Obama Golfing After James Foley Statement: It’s ‘a Good Way For Release’
Asked if the White House could “explain” Obama’s decision, deputy press secretary Eric Schultz said he wouldn’t “get into the president’s mindset” but that the activity was good for Obama.
“I will say that, generally, I think that sports and leisure activities are a good way for release and clearing of the mind for a lot of us,” he said.
Just day’s before Obama’s statement, a YouTube video emerged of Foley being executed by Islamic terrorist group ISIS.
