Father of comatose student freed by North Korea slams Obama

Written by  Todd Venezia

The father of the American student left comatose after 18 months in a North Korean prison has criticized former President Barack Obama for not doing enough to free his son.

“The question is, ‘Do I think the past administration could have done more?’ ” Fred Warmbier, Otto Warmbier’s dad, said at a press conference in Ohio Thursday.

“I think the results speak for themselves.”

He said he appealed to government officials, from members of Congress to former Secretary of State John Kerry, to help free his 22-year-old son, who was jailed for removing a propaganda poster in 2016.

Fred said he was told to stay quiet so as not to “upset” the North Koreans.

“We relied on this false premise that they would treat Otto fairly and let him go,” he said.

He noted that President Trump called him this week and said, “I’m sorry about the outcome.”

The elder Warmbier’s criticism came as doctors at the hospital in Cincinnati where the young man is being treated revealed he is suffering from severe injuries to his brain.

His son was a stupid child and the man is obviously overwhelmed with grief. Obama and his minions could not have cared less about what happened to our citizens. He STILL doesn't care. As long as his family has money and the Soros juggernaut keeps marching on Obama will be happy.

The Young man made 2 huge mistakes, going to North Korea and giving these psychopaths a reason to detain him. Sadly he's going to be a body parts donor .

Obama, Hillary, Kerry foreign policy: "Stay quiet. Don't upset the North Koreans!"

While I feel very badly for this man and his family for their losses, why was his son there to begin with? Why wasn't he taught to respect others property? Why wasn't he told that if he insisted on going to the @ssh0le of the world to visit or study that he would be putting his life in absolute peril? I definitely believe that the elephant eared idiot we had as president could and should have done more to help them but it was clear all along that he hates Americans and couldn't have cared less about helping that family in their time of desperation. Still, it was the parents fault for not properly preparing their son for real life.

Do you even know how teens/young adults really are? The parents might have done all the things that you have described and still the kids won't listen. I speak from experience on that one.

Obama's sole purpose as president was to support Nazi Soros and to harm Americans
Stupid Liberals could not see past the fact that he was handsome and Black for them a Black could do no wrong.
So Obama daily did everything he could to destroy America and harm Americans.
Lets hope Obama hangs for treason soon.

Odrama will not swing, even though he deserves to. The democrats and the liberal left will protect their "Manchurian Candidate" because of his skin color. Every person who voted for Barry Soetoro should be tarred, feathered and then lit on fire. Those people have set America back by 60 years and we may never climb out of the rut we were placed in. There are many on the liberal left that need to be introduced to a short section of rope that's attached to a tall grove of trees. Just my opinion, folks.
Someone needs to track down George Soros and bring his reign of terror to an abrupt end.

YES, OBAMA/Clinton/Kerry and HIS Administration are to blame for the mess we have in the US and the world
and I cannot believe people think HE was a great President
What a load of HOGWASH.

I feel so sorry for this family. We have a daughter that did missionary work in the Baltic's and know how much danger they can be in.
At 22 our young people are on their own. We can only hope to direct and guide from then on. Our opinions aren't always followed.
All of us have done unintelligent things and lived to tell about, but countless have done the same and had dire consequences. At this point all we can do is pray for the best outcome.
AND I can't condemn the last political party enough. Golf games, vacationing, spending our money was their biggest past time. He had no use for us peons. It was all about spending, spending, spending and apologizing to other countries for the USA saving their sorry rearends.
