Charles Krauthammer blasted Barack Obama’s response to the Brussels terrorist attack saying that Obama lives in a “fantasy world” where “Cuba is of some geopolitical significance” instead of seeing that the “world burns” around him.

Appearing on Fox News’s “Special Report” with Bret Baier Tuesday, Krauthammer said that “Obama gave the terror bombing 51 seconds of his speech today in Havana. I thought the whole story of his presidency and its foreign policy was seen in the split screen. On one side you had the video footage of the attack in Belgium. This is the real world. And on the other side was Obama in a fantasy world he inhabits where Cuba is of some geopolitical significance in his mind but none in the real world.” (RELATED: Obama Responds To Brussels Terror Attacks … ‘Whatever’ [VIDEO])

“If Cuba disappeared tomorrow in a volcanic eruption, like Santorini nobody would notice geopoliticalally. But Obama had to go because this is his legacy. This is settling the Cold War arguments of the academic left of Obama’s Columbia University days — the people who worship the Cuban Revolution, the Sandanistas. Obama had his picture taken in front of a relief of Che Guevara, which sort of stated his world view of his adolescent days and now he does it as president.” (RELATED: Obama Snaps Pics In Front Of Che Guevara Mural, Twitter Explodes [PHOTOS])

“On the one hand is the real threat to the world.. this is hair raising stuff that the Belgians are completely outmanned, the Europeans have no way of tracking and that we are completely in the blind. We don’t know what we don’t know,” Krauthammer said. “That’s the real world. Obama calls at this time ‘JV team.’ He pretends it’s contained and controlled. It is not. Instead he does this ideological holiday trip in Cuba while the world burns.” (RELATED: Former CIA Deputy Director: Obama Admin Has Done ‘Very Little’ To Degrade ISIS [VIDEO])
