‘Play time AGAIN’: Obama hits the links; new ‘Ebola czar’ plays hooky

When President Obama cancelled two fundraiser trips last week to focus on growing concerns about the deadly Ebola virus, there was little doubt he was taking a beating in polls.

With his approval rating and weekend golf game at risk, the president had to act quickly and did just that on Friday when he tagged Democratic operative Ron Klain to be his “Ebola czar.”

To stay on top of the narrative, Obama scheduled a Saturday meeting for “his national security and public health teams to update him on the response to the domestic Ebola cases,” the White House said in a statement.

Brown’s blood found in Darren Wilson’s car, evidence
doesn’t support civil rights charges, so NOW WHAT?

But the meeting was held AFTER his golf game.

Just as he blew the optics in favor of his beloved golf when American journalist James Foley was beheaded by Islamic State terrorists, Obama spent four hours and 40 minutes on the links Saturday and then convened the meeting.

Without his new Ebola czar, according to Breitbart News.

Klain also skipped a Friday White House strategy session on the issue, Politico reporter Zeke Miller noted in a tweet:

According to CBS News White House correspondent  Mark Knoller, the Ebola czar isn’t slated to start in his role until “next week” — highly contagious deadly virus notwithstanding!

Knoller also noted that Saturday was a bright, sunny day. Perfect for golf.

As you might guess, none of this was going over very well on Twitter, with social media users quick to express their frustration. A small sampling from Twitter:
