Reince Priebus, leader of the Republican Party, on TV this morning:
“We’re going to talk about our own little Captain Schettino, which is President Obama who’s abandoning the ship here in the United States and is more interested in campaigning than doing his job as president,” Priebus said on CBS’s Face The Nation . .
Schettino killed dozens of people. Good zinger.
“What did you just say? What did you call President Obama?” asked Bob Schieffer, the show’s host.
“I called him Captain Schettino, the captain that fled the ship in Italy. That’s our own president who’s fleeing the American people and not doing his job and running around the country and campaigning,” Priebus said.
Meanwhile, divers risk their lives to recover dead bodies.
