The optics of this are so bad Obama is actually going to make a statement about the slaughter in Iraq at 4:45pm.
President Obama is now enjoying a private beach day outside of Martha’s Vineyard as he continues his extended vacation from the White House in Washington, D.C.
According to the White House pool report, the Obama motorcade traveled about 20 minutes to a beach in Edgartown, Massachusetts.
“The president and First Family is taking advantage of the weather and is spending a day at the beach in Edgartown,” the report noted. “The name of the beach is not known.”
