According to popular myth, Emperor Nero “fiddled” as Rome burned in A.D. 64, but Nero had nothing on Barack Hussein Obama, who, according to reports, decided to play golf even as U.S. troops based at Incirlik Air Base in Turkey are on the highest alert ever.
The Turkish government has also shut down power to the base and closed the air space

According to the New York Times:
The Turkish authorities on Saturday halted, at least temporarily, all American-led strike missions against the Islamic State that had been flying from the Incirlik air base — the first major impact of the attempted coup on the broader allied campaign against the terrorist group, United States officials said.
“The Turkish government has closed its airspace to military aircraft, and as a result air operations at Incirlik Air Base have been halted at this time,” Peter Cook, the Pentagon press secretary, said in a statement. Mr. Cook said United States officials were “working with the Turks to resume air operations there as soon as possible.”
In the meantime, he said, the American military’s Central Command will alter flight operations in an effort “to minimize any effects on the campaign” against the Islamic State.
Making matters worse, Turkey’s PM now indicates that they could be at war with the U.S., according to Reuters:
Any country that stands by the Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen will not be a friend of Turkey and will be considered at war with the NATO member, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Saturday.
The government said that followers of Gulen, who has been living in self-imposed exile in the United States for years, were behind the attempted coup by a faction of the military on Friday.
It pretty much looks like a hostage situation:

So, where is King Barack the Perverted?
If you guessed “the golf course,” you’d be correct:
Obama is now playing golf.

To sum it up: Turkey is threatening war, holding our troops hostage and Obama is playing golf.
And they call ISIS the “JV team?”
