"He wants to ... stand on the corpses of our loved ones and make some kind of political point”

When President Obama spoke about the shooting, he bemoaned the frequency of shootings and made the case that because allowing this to continue is a “political choice,” the issue should be politicized. Well, the president is reportedly traveling to Roseburg, but Jaques made it clear to O’Reilly plenty of residents would not be on board with that.

He said Obama’s “not welcome” in Roseburg because people think he will “grandstand for political purposes.”

“He wants to come to our community,” Jaques said, “and stand on the corpses of our loved ones and make some kind of political point.”
