President Obama on Friday said social media and the nightly news are partly to blame for the sense that “the world is falling apart.”

“I can see why a lot of folks are troubled,” Obama told a group of donors gathered at a Democratic National Committee barbecue in Purchase, N.Y.

But the president said that current foreign policy crises across the world are not comparable to the challenges the U.S. faced during the Cold War.

  1. The world isn’t falling apart for him because he’s so detached from reality and living the high life on our dime. “Hey, Mr. President, I have news for you: most Americans who live and work outside of the Capital Beltway don’t live like you and members of Congress.”

  2. That said translate everything he says to be the opposite of what he should be saying and you have a pretty scary comment. The world is falling apart.
    We have Ebola in Africa, soon to come to a hospital near you.
    We have ISIS storming the Middle East.
    We have a war brewing with the Muslims in Israel and Palestine.
    On the home front, we have illegals coming across our Southern Borders at will.
    We have ISIS putting together terrorists squads according to this site in Mexico.
    We are on the verge of a banking collapse according to other articles.
    I guess I can see why a lot of people would be worried right now also, Mr. President.
