POTUS Rips Lack of Prayer on Cable News

When discussing heathens, the media is always a safe place to start, right?

President Obama took a moment at this morning’s National Prayer Breakfast to ding the cable news networks, using them as a punching bag as to what can happen when a person forgets about prayer and everything discussed at the annual solemn breakfast.

“We have to do it everyday,” Obama said of staying in faith and humility. “Not just at a prayer breakfast. I have to say, this is now our fifth prayer breakfast, and it is always just a wonderful event. But I do worry sometimes, as soon as we leave the prayer breakfast, everything we’ve been talking about seems to be forgotten. On the same day of the prayer breakfast. I mean, you’d like to think the shelf life wadn’t so short. [LAUGHTER] I go back to the Oval Office and start watching the cable news networks and it’s like we didn’t pray.”

But never fear. MSNBC “Daily Rundown” Host Chuck Todd found a silver lining in the message. “The President acknowledged he’s watching [the cable news networks,” noted Todd. “Sometimes he does, sometimes he doesn’t.”
