President Donald Trump gave the U.S. military the green light over the weekend to take out Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani — who has killed and help orchestrate attacks that killed thousands of Americans over the years.
And on the same day drone strikes ordered by Trump killed two top Iranian military figures in Iraq, former President Barack Obama was spotted paddle-boarding in Hawaii.
Since then, Obama has remained silent on the killing.
That’s right: he has no response at all for Trump being a real leader and taking out a dangerous terrorist.
Below is a video clip of Obama paddle-boarding and vacationing in Hawaii on the same day that Trump took out arguably one of the biggest threats to America.

As many have argued, this isn’t accidental.
Instead of congratulating Trump on the successful termination of an enemy of the U.S., Obama is playing politics like the rest of the Democrats.
Rather than say anything at all about Trump making the world much safer by killing Soleimani — Obama has chosen to remain silent.
Trump previously abandoned Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran and has been dealing with minor provocations from Iran, which escalated into an attack on the U.S. embassy in Iraq last week.
On Thursday, drone strikes killed Soleimani and Popular Mobilization Forces leader Abu Mahdi al Muhandis outside Baghdad International Airport.
Trump said on Friday that he authorized the drone strikes to “stop a war” with Iran that could possibly expand.
While Democrats and liberals are rushing to defend the Iranian scum — top military officials say Soleimani was planning “imminent attacks” on Americans that would have most likely killed hundreds.
The attacks would have been conducted on American facilities and workers in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon along with other countries in the region.
Here’s what Brian Hook, a senior United States official, said:
The President’s first responsibility is the safety of the American people. Qasem Soleimani was plotting imminent attacks in the region against Americans in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon that could have resulted in the deaths of hundreds of people.
The President has a constitutional responsibility to prevent those actions from killing Americans. He took an entirely lawful action. I have seen all of the intelligence that supports the decision. It was very solid intelligence.
General Soleimani and his Quds Force were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more. This strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans.
It’s also worth noting that Obama’s silence speaks volumes.
Obama and his team sent Iran pallets of cash, caved on the atrocious Iran Nuclear Deal, and agreed to many of their other reckless demands for years.
But Trump has made it clear that there’s now a real “red line” in Iran, and if they do anything to harm Americans or put them in danger — action will be taken.
