Obama's 'Apology Tour' Critics Focus On Optics Instead Of Actions
The idea of an Obama "apology tour" started during the very first year of his presidency.By Eugene Daniels | May 24, 2016
If you thought President Obama was going to sneak out of the White House without getting some criticism, his Asia trip is here to prove you wrong.
In what's probably one of his last big foreign trips as president, Obama is visiting Vietnam and Hiroshima, Japan; at some point, he will give a speech in the first city that ever had a nuke dropped on it, where he'll address a world without nuclear weapons. His critics have already thrown the trip under the "apology tour" label that's plagued the president since 2009.
"This guy's middle name is apology, so when he goes there, people are going to perceive this as an apology," Fox News' Jesse Watters said on "Outnumbered."
