While they may not come right out and say it, President Barack Obama’s media fan club is sure to count the president among the victims of Tuesday’s terrorist attack in Brussels.
In the process of checking off one of the key legacy items on his bucket list, Obama was in the midst of his “historic” trip to Cuba to hang out with communist dictator Raul Castro when Islamic State terrorists had the audacity to follow up on the attack in Paris by striking Belgium.
Huffington Post senior politics editor Sam Stein came close to admitting that the president was a victim of Tuesday’s attack while lamenting on social media that Obama’s trip was being “overshadowed” by the terrorists:
Obama just can’t move his focus away from the Middle East/terrorism. His Cuba trip now overshadowed by today’s events.

The idea expressed by Stein that poor Obama just can’t catch a break prompted plenty of snark on social media … here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
@samsteinhp That’s what happens when you ignore terrorism for 8 effing years. Hint: it won’t just go away & leave us alone.

@samsteinhp Liberal writer whines that Brussels attack “overshadowing” Obama’s wonderful tributes to murderous Cuban communism.

@samsteinhp Poor guy. It’s almost like being POTUS is a full time job. Like malevolent actors in the world don’t care about his “Legacy”.

I know. The nerve of those innocent victims getting murdered while Obama is vacationing in Cuba. How rude.

@RichardGrenell @redsteeze @samsteinhp What will this do to Obama’s NCAA brackets? That’s the real question.
