Jewish ‘Scandal’ Star Joshua Malina Slams Obama for Calling Paris Terror Attack ‘Random’
Jewish Scandal star Joshua Malina blasted President Barack Obama on Monday for suggesting that the Jan. 9 Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket attack in Paris was a random act of terror.
President Obama spoke about the Paris supermarket attack, which left four Jews dead, in a recent interview with Vox.com. He told the publication, “It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.”
Though some Twitter users defended the president’s remarks, Malina tweeted, “Poor choice of words, in any event.”
“At a time when it’s vitally important to highlight the non-random nature of the act, the President misspoke,” he added.
