Fox’s Kilmeade Mocks Obama: ‘JFK Didn’t Go Golfing During Cuban Missile Crisis’

Speaking to Fox News anchor Bret Baier Monday morning, Fox & Friends co-hosts Brian Kilmeade and Peter Johnson set up a comparison between the situation in the Crimean peninsula and the Cuban Missile Crisis, which they said reflected poorly on President Barack Obama’s round of golf this weekend.

“Is there that sense of crisis and urgency with regard to the Ukraine in Washington, D.C.?” Johnson asked.

“I don’t see it from the leaders here,” Baier replied. “I just don’t see the urgency from the administration. Some of the talking doesn’t seem to that level. It doesn’t seem like privately they are to that level. The president talked to a lot of world leaders, but he was on vacation down in the Keys. And there is this sense that perhaps Crimea is gone, as was said [by former Defense Secretary Robert Gates] over the weekend.”

“Also, JFK didn’t go golfing during the Cuban Missile Crisis,” Kilmeade said. “The president was.”
