Donald Trump Mocks Obama for Watching ‘Star Wars’

The force is evidently not with Donald Trump.

The Republican presidential candidate shared a video via social media that boldly accuses President Obama of prioritizing “Star Wars” over the war on ISIS.

The 15-second clip, which Trump captioned “We need a real President!,” begins with the typed statement “We are in a serious war,” and is followed with images from a news stories about ISIS members obtaining fake passports and coverage of both the Paris terror attacks and the San Bernardino mass shooting — the Paris attack is believed to be linked to the militant group, but the San Bernardino shooters pledged allegiance to the group on social media and then deleted the posts.. The choppy clips then fade to a black screen that reads, “Our president is busy with another war,” followed by a clip of Obama saying, “OK everybody, I gotta get to ‘Star Wars.'”

The president was referring to the Dec. 18 White House screening of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” that he and wife Michelle hosted for families of fallen soldiers.

The ad leaves viewers with the message, “Time for a leader with real priorities.”
