As Brussels burned, our commander in chief was doing the wave.

There he was at a baseball game in Cuba with a communist dictator while one of our allies was under attack.

In a state of horror, fear and chaos, the world watched as Brussels was viciously attacked by ISIS thugs in a multi-pronged assault that killed dozens and wounded scores more. It was the second major European city forced into lockdown recently due to radical Islamist terrorists.

But when we have a president who went to play golf immediately after James Foley’s beheading by ISIS killers, what did we expect from our faux leader? That he would cancel his bromance with Raul Castro and rush back to the Situation Room?

Wishful thinking. Obama muttered a few words in Cuba yesterday addressing the terror attack — under a minute long — then went off to do the wave. The only thing missing from his lovefest with Castro was his selfie stick.

And to think there are Donald Trump haters who are convinced the GOP front-runner would be an ineffective leader. My question for the #NeverTrump crowd is: How is Obama’s War on Terror going?

Under President Obama’s watch we’ve seen radical Islamist terrorists attack Boston, detonating twin bombs at the marathon. We’ve seen the 2012 terror attack at our diplomatic outpost in Benghazi. There was Ft. Hood, Chattanooga, the San Bernardino slaughter and terror attacks in Paris last year. All at the hands of radical Islam. Two words our denier in chief still won’t utter.

God forbid he offend anyone.

The dangerous reality is we’ve got a president who is more interested in protecting political correctness than protecting our homeland.

Hence, Trump’s ascent to the top of the GOP presidential field. Trump wants to build a Southern wall and tackle immigration reform once and for all. Why? Because he understands — as do his supporters — that a broken immigration system coupled with an insecure border poses a serious national security threat to America.

But progressive liberals like Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren just called Trump a “loser” for not being politically correct.

Please tell our clueless senator that political correctness is going to continue to get Americans killed.

ISIS is winning and the jig is up. We must demand real leadership before we get hit again.
