Firestorm explodes over Obama’s terror description: Zealots ‘randomly’ shot ‘a bunch of folks in Paris deli’

President Obama has hit a new low in failing to describe the evil of Islamist terrorism with a deliberate lie about some victims of the Paris terror attacks in early January.

In an interview with the lefty website, Obama condescended to acknowledge Americans have a right to be “deeply concerned” about terrorist violence. Then he went on to lie about what actually happened on Jan. 9.

“It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris,” he said.

Randomly shoot? In a deli?

The victims of the attack on the Hypercacher supermarket weren’t attacked randomly. They were murdered by an Islamist killer because they were Jews, in a Jewish place. (Not a “deli,” Mr. President. And a place so Jewish the name means “hyper kosher” in French.)

The Twitter world exploded in scorn.

As a distortion of the truth, it’s not even on a par with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s line about the Benghazi attack of September 2012 being committed by “guys out for a walk one night and decided they’d go kill some Americans.”

It’s worse.

And even from a president who’s spent six years spouting nonsense, it’s hard to believe.

A lot of people did.

When will we?
