After the mass shooting over at Fort Lauderdale airport, Governor Rick Scott chose to reach out to President-elect Trump instead of President Obama.
I’m really starting to see why… See why Obama was in Florida the day after that shooting. It had absolutely NOTHING to do with the tragedy!
From The Blaze:
After Friday’s shooting, which claimed five lives, Florida Gov. Rick Scott said Obama hadn’t yet contacted him. But Scott, a Republican, did speak to President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence about the attack — which outraged some liberals who said Scott should have first called Obama. The president later contacted Scott, the Hill reported Friday.

Then Saturday afternoon Obama flew down to Florida — but not to Fort Lauderdale.
He landed in Jacksonville about 6 p.m. for the wedding of one of his top aides, Marvin Nicholson, a White House travel director, WJAX-TV reported. Obama acted as a groomsman for Nicholson, who’s also one of the president’s frequent golfing partners, People reported.
