Uber-defensive Obama, goes on incoherent tirade against Trump and critics for reluctance to blame Orlando attack on radical Islamic terrorism

Today we saw President Barack Hussein Obama have a near nervous breakdown in front of the nation trying to explain his inexplicable reluctance to say the words, ‘radical Islamic terrorism”. 
He has a problem trying to explain away a record number of Islamic terrorist attacks on U.S. soil on his watch.  His solution is to close eyes and not acknowledge what is plain to see for every American who lives in this country, except him.  He’s reached the pathological stage of denial and it isn’t pretty to watch.   
Bloomberg reports President Barack Obama launched a broadside rejection of Donald Trump’s demand that the U.S. label Muslim terrorists as "radical Islamists," arguing the presumptive Republican presidential nominee risks emboldening America’s enemies and antagonizing an entire faith.

In concurrent addresses in Washington and Pittsburgh, Obama and the presumptive Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, delivered a one-two punch to Trump in an effort to paint an image of a man unfit to serve as commander in chief.

“We are now seeing how dangerous this kind of mindset and this kind of thinking can be,” Obama said on Tuesday after meeting with his national security advisers to discuss U.S. efforts to combat Islamic State extremists. “There’s no magic to the phrase ‘radical Islam.’ It’s a political talking point, not a strategy."

Both Democrats said Trump’s call a day earlier for special surveillance of U.S. Muslims and a prohibition against Muslim immigration to the U.S. is un-American and dangerous. Clinton described trying to understand Trump’s thinking, saying she had "sifted through the bizarre rants and the outright lies" and concluded that "he has nothing substantive to say."
