Not The Onion.

"Obama criticized for doing tango 2 days after bombings in Brussels"

https://www.yahoo.com/politics/obama-tango-critics-brussels-terror-142641037.html

“Fox and Friends” aired video of the president’s dance moves along with the label “Tango Over Terror.” “When everybody else is worried about where ISIS is, who they are going to kill next, and [if they] are going to come over here,” former Judge Andrew Napolitano said on the cable network’s morning show, “the president shouldn’t be in Argentina doing the tango.”

4. It wasn't just the folks at Fox. It was also the lame folks at Morning Joe. They were split

over whether he should have "rushed" back to Washington, but all were all in agreement that dancing the tango was WRONG as if he were dancing on someone's grave or something. Gee Wiz!!!! Same crap about the Baseball Game. As the President, he has secure communications so he can contact Heads of State from anywhere in the world. But what would have been the point of cutting short a state visit. It's not like he was declaring war or something.

Also, he did try to say "No", but the dancers were pleading with him to come on. Sometimes it's easier to just give in rather than making a big scene over nothing and being a jerk by insulting your Host when they've planned entertainment on your behalf. As someone else said, it's not like he was twerking. He was doing their national dance.

Someone needs to tell the GOP and the folks at Morning Joe, "Sometimes thou CAN protest too much".

5. Yes,he would have insulted a nation for refusing their art form of dancing...

We have to look at it this way. And he didn't try to show off; if anything, he let his female partner have the good moves. Obama is POTUS. What he doesn't do is as important as what he DOES.
